Former Liverpool Manager Expects Klopp's Reds To Slip Up

Pep Guardiola reveals Manchester City’s Christmas Day plans

Only twice in the last 10 years have the team top of the league on Christmas Day not gone on to win the title and on both occasions it was Liverpool, in 2013-14 and 2008-09.

City head to the King Power Stadium second in the Premier League table, four points adrift of leaders Liverpool.

"You look at the players that he's worked with for a consistent period of time, I think they've all got better and are now playing at higher levels".

"We need again an exceptional atmosphere to beat a very hard to beat team".

Klopp's side are unbeaten in the league and host Newcastle United on Wednesday (15:00 GMT kick-off).

"I don't think Pep Guardiola will be too concerned about a four-point gap with 20 games left to play", said Hodgson, who was Liverpool manager in 2010-11.

"For the second half of the season, yes we are [greedy]", Klopp said.

"We need to be conscious about that, we need to fight a lot, and there is still a long way for work and to be consistent".

"To come to a club like Manchester City is never easy and I feel we fully deserved the three points".

"We've found the games against Tottenham hard", said Howe, whose team travel to Manchester United following the Spurs clash.

Midfielder Naby Keita was removed from Liverpool's win against Wolverhampton Wanderers on Friday. We all have to be focused, not nervous. "If you think that, then that's the moment things go wrong". We have to think about December 26 against Newcastle. It's a different team, a different time, everything was different. "We smelled a bit of it last season how it could be".

The transfer window will be open when Liverpool face title rivals Manchester City (3 January) and by then the German should have an excellent idea of whether or not his squad needs reinforcing.

I don't know. I think so, but I don't know. But it's not about that. "There are a few of them out there and they can win things without the ideal attitude, but usually no chance without that". Then City has the biggest advantage because they were a year ago champions all together, they know how it works and what to do: do it again and it will happen.

I saw a debate on TV the other day suggesting Van Dijk might be the best player in the world right now and while we don't normally think about defenders in that light, he can't be far off that.
