Liverpool are Louis van Gaal's tip for Premier League title

"And of course, the central midfield player that we were talking about before the game".

Nevertheless, City once again did prove their quality as champions, rising to the occasion to beat a Liverpool side who were unbeaten and had won their last nine games.

But Klopp insisted that a four-point advantage over the defending champions with 17 games remaining was a strong position for his side to secure a first league title since 1990.

Another veteran of City's previous title triumphs, Aguero, opened the scoring on Thursday by beating Alisson with a thunderous finish from an nearly implausible angle.

"Always he responds", the ex-Barcelona boss said of Aguero. Had it not been for limited space and time, I would have churned out more cold-hard facts to further highlight the claim that the EPL is the best football league in the world, as an early contender for the "NON-ARGUMENT OF 2019".

Fowler makes a very good point.

"But players like Vincent [Kompany], like David [Silva], like Sergio, like Nicolas Otamendi, who every single year are there competing with the desire to do more and more and more".

Justin Holiday scored three points and only made one of his seven shots from the field as the Bulls lost to the Magic 112-84. Although Chris Paul is out, the Rockets may be able to will themselves to another victory against the reigning champions.

Jurgen Klopp's tactics in that contest have been questioned, while Lovren has been branded the "weakest link" in a title-chasing side.

That is despite facing more shots on target than City, 54 to 51.

Then comes the first leg of an EFL Cup semi-final against Burton Albion as City continue to battle for trophies of four fronts. "This month was really tough but it is what it is".

Manchester City's romp to the Premier League title last season can be used as inspiration for Liverpool, says Trent Alexander-Arnold.

Simon Mignolet will get a game in goal, there will most likely be starts for Naby Keïta and Adam Lallana, and Klopp says he will have no problem at all in calling on Alberto Moreno, the left-back who went public at the end of past year with his dissatisfaction over a lack of game time.

"We're going there [Molineux] to win", the full-back added. We could have played today better, but it started not that well. "Liverpool don't concede goals and we scored two". "It is the only way".
