Fernandinho irreplaceable among Guardiola's winning addicts at Man City

Fernandinho irreplaceable among Guardiola's winning addicts at Man City

Having played Arsenal and City back-to-back, Juergen Klopp's Liverpool do not play another top six side until February 24 when they travel to Manchester United. They were so excited, and I am happy for them. In the game's first real scoring chance, Manchester City miraculously avoided going down in the 18th minute.

"The quicker they go out of these competitions [FA Cup, Champions League, League Cup], the more of an unbelievable chance they have to win the Premier League".

"I'm not sure too many people picked up on it at the Etihad this week, but what struck me was just how ballistic City went when they won", Fowler wrote in the Mirror. This season I can not see the Liverpool back four making many mistakes and they are too good going forward for most teams.

Xherdan Shaqiri should come back in to the side while Daniel Sturridge is expected to lead the line up front for Liverpool.

That's because Klopp has trained them to be a fighting force, whether they have the ball or not.

Klopp is already being implored by some Liverpool fans to give his youths and reserves an outing at Wolves in Monday's Cup tie, yet inevitably Europe will cast the biggest shadow over the title race. Guardiola has won three La Liga, three Bundesliga titles to add to his Premier League triumph.

"They only have the opportunity to show up and play football and all the things that don't work are my responsibility and my fault because then I made the wrong decision and they were not ready, that's how it is".

"We have a point to prove every game", he said.

Juan Mata - from the penalty spot - and Romelu Lukaku scored the first-half goals for United, allowing Solskjaer to join the great Matt Busby (in 1946) as the only United managers to win their first five games. He did brilliantly so far, like all of the boys who don't play constantly, they keep the level really high in training, unbelievable high quality.

"For me, Liverpool just want it more than the Man City players".

The Argentine beat Dejan Lovren to Bernardo Silva's cross before firing into the roof of the net to score for the seventh time in seven home league games against Liverpool.
