Man City competing like 'animals' to win title - Fernandinho

Man City competing like 'animals' to win title - Fernandinho

The two Premier League title contenders have a very clear set of directives from now until the season with one absolute certainty: there's no margin for error.

The Foxes still have to face Manchester City - and the Reds badly need them to take something from the Etihad.

"We have a game before that but my job is to do Leicester a favour".

The Reds now sit one point behind Manchester City in the race for the title with just three games to go and Jurgen Klopp will know his side cannot afford to slip-up.

"Someone told me that a supporter had said playing Champions League games that kick off in daylight is what Liverpool supporters want all the time because it means you're playing these games at the end of April and May, which is the business end".

The Reds find themselves in a similar position this season as they're locked in battle with Manchester City for English football's top prize.

The Brazil striker sustained a muscle injury in training on Thursday and was ruled out of the Premier League game against Huddersfield on Friday. But winning four straight games in the Premier League is no simple task - even for City. The supporters know every single player is giving all they have every time they take to the pitch. Spurs' last-gap win at home to Brighton seems to point to them sewing up third, whilst Arsenal's continued tragic away form has handed the initiative to the team that wants it at Old Trafford on Sunday.

The Terriers have lost 27 league matches so far this season. The current record is 29, held jointly by Ipswich (1994/95), Sunderland (2005/06) and Derby (2007/08).

The Liverpool manager was asked by a Norwegian journalist what advice he would give Ole Gunnar Solskjær as he begins the formidable task of rebuilding Manchester United.

"But they have been beaten twice by City this year already, both times 5-0".

We still have the chance to do it, we will see what happens until the end of the season but it's the first time, not the last time.

In 14 matches between 1 December and 23 February, Huddersfield picked up just one point, that in a goalless draw against Cardiff. The current holders, remarkable as it seems now, are Manchester City, who only scored 10 goals at the Etihad Stadium in 2006/07.
