Pep Guardiola has defended Manchester City's title credentials despite back-to-back defeats handing Liverpool the initiative at the top of the Premier League.

It is a match City can not afford to lose - and realistically have to win considering the relentless progress of Liverpool, who remain unbeaten 20 matches into the season.

Antonio Rudiger, Chelsea (Tier 1 defender): Rudiger has the third-highest fantasy points per game average in this tier, and the two players ahead of him play for Liverpool and Manchester City.

"In the winter break everyone loses games, except for Liverpool in this period, but everyone drops points, that's normal".

Needing a win to secure the Premier League title - a win they would get a few days later - City opened the game 2-0 in front by the half-hour mark.

The bench is not a familiar place for Virgil van Dijk and nor does he want it to be. "One of the most incredible things I've ever seen".

"Oh, I was waiting for that question", he said.

"Obviously everyone came around us and it looked like we were fighting or something but we weren't. That's what I definitely do", he added.
