Gomez to have surgery to boost recovery

The Merseyside giants have not won the top-flight title since 1990, but Klopp's side now hold a two-point advantage in first place ahead of their game in hand against West Ham United on Monday night.

Guardiola has been bombarded with questions about pressure in recent weeks but consistently points out that he is more focused on the performances of his own team, and that the best way to send a message to title rivals is to play well.

Gundogan told City's stars that patience is required.

"There was pressure past year, a lot of pressure when we played Manchester City away in the quarter-finals of the Champions League, and we dealt with it".

With the game delicately poised at half-time following Harry Maguire's stoppage time equaliser for the Foxes just before the break, the Liverpool grounds staff proceeded to clear snow off the field - but only in the half the Reds would be attacking for the next 45 minutes. We go game by game and our mentality has to be to stay until the end of the season in first place. "When you want to be successful, every player has to give everything to the team".

"Klopp didn't win as much as Pep won - that's why it was quite surprising when he was able to win two titles in a row with Dortmund in Germany".


"I don't know how often they have been champions in the last five or six years - 'Yeah, one more, why not?"

But going into the game Hammers boss Manuel Pellegrini made a case for Tottenham too with comments that won't please West Ham fans. We had an advantage of just playing on Saturday and the week off in between.

Now, after Pep Guardiola's side beat Arsenal 3-1 to go to within two points of Liverpool, it was Raheem Sterling's time to play mind games.

"I think it is easier for the Reds to play away from Anfield because of the massive expectancy when they are at home". We can not change that.

City face Everton on Wednesday before Chelsea at the weekend and will endure a hectic schedule this month with three midweek matches.
