Klopp calm despite Liverpool pressure: Robertson


Not wanting to rely on anyone, Jurgen Klopp and the rest of his wards went out in Anfield with one goal in mind, to win matches one game at a time.

Liverpool may be level pegging on points with Manchester City at the top of the Premier League table, but Sky Sports pundit Gary Neville has admitted it will be a "real struggle" for them to lift the title in May.

"People say it's disappointing the draws we have had - yes, it is, we would like to win - but all in all, hopefully at the end of the season we can look back and say they are good draws with the circumstances".

Manchester United (a rejuvenated, hungry, attacking Manchester United) v Liverpool is massive and will have a huge sway on proceedings.

As well, Everton may be meek and lacking confidence right now but the Toffees could also dent their neighbours title challenge, though it all depends on just how ferocious the Goodison crowd is on March 3.

As of now, Manchester city lead the standings on goal difference with 65 points from 27 games.

"The scarves, the flags, the banners: it was something that I hadn't really experienced".

The home side's second goal was an exquisite chip over Bournemouth Keeper Atur Boruc by influential Dutch worldwide player Georginio Wynaldum, withy the move starting with Keita winning the ball off former Red player Jordan Ibe.

"More often than not this season Liverpool have done that".

"Fans have a lot of emotion, but we can't just go on emotion", Alisson told ESPN Brasil.

"Manchester City have set themselves a standard in the last week". They are cracking opponents' heads open and feasting on the goo inside.

But he added that garnering 65 points at this stage of the season exceeded their expectations when the campaign got underway.

"What Man City do - blowing teams away, scoring so early, the football that they play - you could argue that is the best football to watch", Carragher said. He has grabbed games by the scruff of the neck and has been a champion player.

Despite Liverpool playing some brilliant stuff and deservedly racing ahead at Christmas, for me the victor will be Manchester City. I didn't train on Friday and I didn't sleep at the hotel either because they thought I might infect other players.

Wijnaldum had missed Liverpool's previous league match against West Ham because of a knee problem, and needed medication to ensure that he would be fit to face the Cherries, but a late illness threw his participation into doubt.

Keita had a hand in all three Liverpool goals, providing the pass to team mate James Milner, whose cross to Liverpool's Senegalese winger Sadio Mane was headed in for Liverpool's first goal.
