"This season has shown, once more, that the Premier League is among the most competitive leagues in the world", the 30-year-old said.

Scott Groom details the three battles he believes will prove to be key during what will be a fiercely contested clash against Manchester City on Thursday evening.

"All we can do is keep going; recover first of all, that's very important, and then prepare the next game".

We had two poor games and we knew we needed to win to give ourselves a chance and we did just that.

Guardiola insists City will keep fighting for the Premier League title no matter what happens on Thursday evening. They can not afford a loss at all.

Liverpool began 2019 with a seven-point advantage at the top - no team has ever failed to win the title after heading into the New Year so far ahead - following devastating attacking dismissal of Arsenal at Anfield. They are in the moment the best team in Europe, in the consistency, the way they control the details in their game. But, facing a rampant, well-rested Liverpool at home is something quite different than giving the Saints a run-around at St. Mary's. He has had a really good season for Pep Guardiola's side. In the return fixture at Anfield, Guardiola had been extremely pragmatic and returned with a respectable goalless draw. We'll try to play the same way we've been doing.

The undefeated 42-year-old made use of that advantage, knocking his opponent down three times in just two minutes. Nasukawa, though, reportedly faced a multi-million dollar fine if he attempted to kick out at Mayweather .

"This might sound silly, but I'd be shocked if Manchester City won this game".

However, staying at the top of the table is no easy task. They are now getting penalty decisions in their favour.

"They'll be looking at it that they can close the gap to four points, which isn't as big", he told reporters.

The board went out and ostentatiously addressed Liverpool's flaws with numerous extravagant splurges.

Dating back to before Klopp arrived in 2015, Liverpool has lost just one of its past 11 meetings with City, and that was a 5-0 defeat early last season after Mane was sent off in the first half.

However, former Liverpool attacker Raheem Sterling, who was a star of City's own record-breaking side that finished last season with 100 points and 106 goals, warned that his side are confident of beating the Reds. The most vital part of the game is the opening 20 minutes. But then he is facing his toughest opponent. And there's a sense he struggles to set teams up against managerial counterpart Juergen Klopp. The Reds have won only five of their last 17 matches in all competitions in January (D5 L7), with the Reds losing nine of Jurgen Klopp's 24 matches during the month (W8 D7). The writing looked to be on the wall: they were 'gonna win the league'.

They were arrested inside the residence where Perez Arriaga was apprehended. "Please remember the man", Richardson also said. Residents, friends, relatives and fellow officers held back tears as they eulogized Singh during the candlelight memorial.

City shot-stopper Ederson, meanwhile, will be encouraged to go long more often than not to quell Liverpool's attacking trio.

There's no real method as to how to stop Mohamed Salah when he's flying high, so Laporte, along with the rest of the City defence will have a tough evening on their hands. Klopp will be hoping that he performs at least as per his averages on Thursday. Kevin de Bruyne was absent with a muscular injury and remains a doubt for the Liverpool match. Kyle Walker's form has been suspect as is his place in the starting XI.

Joel Matip and Joe Gomez are still sidelined for Liverpool. James Milner was also ruled out before the last game.

However, Alberto Moreno is available for selection after recovering from a back problem. "The game itself is unbelievably hard work, but that's how it is".

'Being relaxed against Liverpool will be a mistake.
