Liverpool and Manchester City in sorry stalemate as Chelsea display title credentials

Liverpool and Manchester City in sorry stalemate as Chelsea display title credentials

Steven Gerrard's men will be bouncing from their 3-1 win over Rapid Vienna in the Europa League on Thursday evening, and they will look to take that form into the match with the league leaders, who have already turned Rangers' bitter rivals Celtic over this term. We have to start anew. Who are these teams that they're going to lose to?'. It's how it is in my job; if I win games, I know everything about football, if I lose three in a row, people think I have no clue about football.

"We have to be spot on, at our best to keep them away from our goal and create chances in front of our goal".

'The challenge for me and the team now is: can we make these home performances away from home?

"Well, the last 12 months have shown us that not many teams are going to do it". That's our aim and we know we can do it, it's about doing it on the day.

"But that would mean I forget completely how we played three days before against Chelsea, so we have to stay cool".

"My faith in the team is so big".

"But he best go to the owners and ask for an bad lot of money if he wants James Tavernier".

"We don't want to have that feeling again so we will fight with all we have for a different result", he added.

Petrol, diesel prices cut by Rs 2.50 per litre
States saw their Value-Added Tax revenue from petro goods rise from Rs 1,37,157 crore in 2014-15 to Rs 1,84,091 crore in 2017-18. In the same period in 2016, the prices of the petrol and Diesel stood at around Rs 62 and Rs 50 and Rs. 66 and Rs 56 in Mumbai.

Liverpool, who remain unbeaten in their last 18 home games against City, came out roaring and dominated the opening 10 minutes but Pep Guardiola's visiting side weathered that early storm and were the more unsafe after the break.

City substitute Leroy Sane was sent sprawling by Virgil van Dijk with five minutes remaining and, just when it seemed as though the visitors might snatch victory, Riyad Mahrez sent his penalty sailing way over the crossbar.

Klopp has been described as Pep Guardiola's nemesis but the German insisted there is no magic formula to beating City. This was a very good game and the City games (have been) very good games.

All three of Liverpool's midfielders - Jordan Henderson, Gini Wijnaldum and James Milner - are best suited to the pressing game rather than falling deep as they did against Napoli.

"I would've liked us at 3-0 to maybe push and try and get a fourth so I could maybe make subs a little bit earlier", he told the club's official YouTube channel.

Klopp addressed Keita's fitness situation during his pre-match press conference, putting a shadow of doubt on the midfielder's availability, having not trained since sustaining the problem with his back.

"I thought they were sensational".

"It's not always possible and it's always hard work but that's really an important thing".
