TUNNEL CAM & DRESSING ROOM REACTIONS | Man City 2-1 Liverpool

  • Pep Guardiola and Jurgen Klopp face off

"The Premier League is a tough league, the games keep coming".

Fernandinho has questioned Liverpool's ability to deal with the pressure of being Premier League leaders after Manchester City's 2-1 defeat of Jürgen Klopp's side.

The decision not to dismiss Kompany proved a crucial moment according to Klopp as City went on to snatch the points thanks to Leroy Sane's late victor after Roberto Firmino had cancelled out Sergio Aguero's opener.

"If somebody had told me after both games against Man City we would be 4 points up, I would have paid money", said Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp.

With the table-topping Reds hoping to win the English title for the first time since 1990, letting second-placed City move back within four points of them was a significant blow.

Receiving Bernardo Silva's cross on his right foot, Aguero got away from Dejan Lovren and used his left boot to power the ball into the roof of the net.

City was spared from going behind by just 11 millimeters (0.4 inches) of the ball failing to cross the line in the 18th minute. Without it, Liverpool could now be heading over the horizon toward their first championship since 1990, but they have now been dragged back into a title race by Pep Guardiola's men.

He said that for his country to overcome obstacles, "we need good allies, good friends, good brothers , like Benjamin Netanyahu". The Arab and Muslim world warned the Brazilian president-elect that such a change would negatively affect trade ties.

"It was that or let him go through on goal and the decision was made very quickly in my head".

"I have so much faith in my players", Klopp said.

Speaking during Sky Sports' coverage of the game, Neville pulled out the positive of Alexander-Arnold's performance, highlighting his contribution for his side's goal. Do we need an open something (wound)'.

"Why should we behave like somebody who won it all the time? You have to win every game, so we will see what happens in the end".

Despite still sitting top of the division, club legend Jamie Carragher is adamant Liverpool should now switch up their formation despite only losing one game in the league.

City's recent shock back-to-back defeats to Crystal Palace and Leicester had allowed Liverpool to amass a commanding lead in their quest to win a first title since 1990. "When we win or we lose, we will not look back".

"I would have paid money for it you can not believe", Klopp said.
