Arsene Wenger Predicts Winner Of Liverpool vs Man City

"I have no idea if I've ever had a nine-point lead, it has never been nine points over City, especially after a game against them so it is completely new", Klopp told Sky Sports.

'I wish I could say it will never happen again but unfortunately I can't.

Liverpool took a firm grip on the game with two goals in the opening 13 minutes but there was controversy over the first.

"I didn't see it but I can understand each disappointment".

"The connection is fantastic between the team, Klopp and fans, it's a unique thing". So knowing everything in the game, being courageous, playing football, defending for your lives, all that stuff. I can imagine it's the whole week [with] how the whole world is talking about we must not lose, I think I heard, and they must win or something like that. But I am really not interested.

"We want to win and we try everything to make that happen, which is hard enough". The season will not stop after this.

'Not that we did it all together, we all didn't throw the bottle or whatever it was, but it was one of us. "I want to compete for titles and to be the best, and to do that you have to win against the best". "I'm really looking forward to it, but the discussions around I'm not part of".

Asked whether a nine-point gap could be bridged to a side that has not lost in 29 Premier League games, Guardiola said he was "not a magician".

City have reportedly voiced their worries about a repeat of the incident in the Champions League quarter-final in April 2018 when damage was caused to their team coach.

"In the past couple of years we both gained a lot of respect for each other", he continued.

Manchester City are now 4th on the log leaving them nine points behind Liverpool and one behind second-placed Leicester City and third-placed Chelsea.

But City felt the stunning effort should have been ruled out - and a penalty awarded to them - as 20 seconds earlier, an attempted cross hit Liverpool defender Trent Alexander-Arnold on the arm inside the box, but the VAR review went against the visitors.

He fired a warning to Merseyside that when City operate at their very best in defence and attack, they're a frightening proposition.

"I think it was precaution".

"The big games are the ones you want to play, and if you want to compete for titles you have to be the best", he said. Otherwise it's another draw and I think they would have been deserved.

"Maybe other people [who] are smarter than me can see it like this".

"It will be tight, and the first half could be a tactical chess match, but I'm backing City to nick this one and blow the title race wide open".
