Much the same was said about City this time past year, when Guardiola's side remained unbeaten in the league and boasted a commanding lead at the top of the table.

They remain in contention for four trophies this season, although successive league defeats against Crystal Palace and Leicester have dampened the mood at the Etihad Stadium.

Despite the shock of going 1-0 down - the first time they had trailed at Anfield in the league in 364 days - Klopp's team responded in style to win 5-1.

However, Merson is still backing Arsenal to beat Fulham tomorrow as he claims his former side are "bullies" who always beat the lesser teams so he's backing us to ease to a 3-1 victory at the Emirates on Tuesday afternoon.

With their trip to the Etihad on Thursday, Liverpool have the chance to stretch the gap between them and City to a whopping 10 points. "Our pride has been hurt over the last few weeks but we have everything to play for and it depends on us".

Speaking to the Mirror, van Dijk revealed that Sokratis' accusations of foul play from Salah triggered the half-time rough-housing, saying: "I saw that he went to Mo and was saying that he dived".

"If the guys lose two games, we are out of the Premier League; if we win one game, we are in it - but there are a lot of games". We just have to keep going, to work hard every day in training to win games.

Guardiola said that even if City lost all three of their next matches, he would not waver from the high-pressing, fast-passing principles with which he has made his reputation as a coach.

"To beat them you are going to have to score twice, which is a tall order".

"I think Manchester City will come into this game knowing that they are still unstable".

Neil Warnock has the side as well organised as you would expect, with Tuesday's match offering the chance for them to record three straight top-flight clean sheets for the first time since 1957.

"But Tottenham [in third] will be looking to capitalise as well because we both play each other, so both of us can't pick up full points". However, if they are serious about becoming as good as their noisy neighbours and chart their own history in the history books. This loss we can use to be better.
