Manchester City vs. Liverpool 2017 live stream

Posted March 20, 2017

Despite seeing Liverpool's hopes of a first league title since 1990 fall apart, Klopp maintains his belief that he can re-establish the club as the dominant force in English football and says he retains the backing of everyone associated with the club.

"After being knocked out of the Champions League they will be even more focused on the Premier League, so we have to be ready".

The Reds square up to Manchester City in the biggest game of the weekend later on today. That, in my eyes, is ludicrous but if Liverpool fans are keen for him to leave, that's fine - he can come to City.

But far from thinking his team selection in Monaco backfired or blaming poor defending, Guardiola felt the defeat was down to players not sticking to the game plan.

"To keep a clean sheet in the first game was a tremendous effort, because to shut that team out, I don't think many teams will manage it this season".

Markets cautious ahead of Fed announcement
USA stocks closed higher on Wednesday, as oil prices bounced back and the Fed took a less hawkish stance than expected. However, the Fed stuck to its outlook for two more rate hikes this year and three more in 2018.

They are such a tough team to play against, as we found out earlier in the season, so to grind out a result when we haven't played well was pleasing and hopefully the team take confidence from that.

"You look at Liverpool's record against the top six and it's excellent". We fight for that, we play for that.

Manchester City and Tottenham are not uncatchable now however, especially with both Gabriel Jesus and Harry Kane out injured now, but until the pair begin to drop points, Liverpool are the team I will be concentrating on in hope of demise.

On Origi: "Divock was off yesterday because he felt a little bit". Will we be consistent title rivals while these two managers are at the helm? If I knew somebody who could do it better I wouldn't be here. It shows that on the big occasion the team is there, they perform and produce the goods. I played in the midfield a year ago and created quite a lot of goals, but wherever the team needs me I'll play.

The Man City team was a top side and maybe had a couple more standout individual players, but we have a lot of good players and as a team we play a different style. Will Jurgen Klopp work on ideas to stop them playing?
