Liverpool striker Roberto Firmino could miss out against Watford tonight

The Reds boss was forced to play down claims of a fall-out after the pair did not shake hands - a misunderstanding according to Klopp - when the England midfielder was substituted in last Sunday's 0-0 draw at Manchester United.

The second half drubbing of an erratic Chelsea (4-0) last month is the obvious highlight but that was their first Premier League home win against a "big six" side since they beat Arsenal 2-1 in January a year ago and they've lost 10 of their last 12 against the "big six" at the Vitality Stadium.

Nobody really spoke about Watford or Everton.

City face just Manchester United, Watford and Spurs from the current top half but also tackle the teams now in 11th, 12th and 14th - Leicester, Bournemouth and Crystal Palace - and nobody lower than 16th-place Brighton. "If I was making this decision with my heart I would have been at Celtic for life because it is an incredible club and one I've supported all my life", Rodgers said. "You always have to be prepared for that moment as a club".

"If we can perform at the level we did last December, it will be very good".

"Harry Kane's return from injury has not exactly gone to plan, coinciding with back-to-back defeats that have surely killed off Spurs" title hopes. Arsenal, meanwhile, were smashing Bournemouth 5-1, and would cut the gap to their bitter rivals to a point with victory at Wembley tomorrow.

"I don't tell players before the game that they will not play".

The Premier League champions remained a point behind leaders Liverpool on Wednesday after Sergio Aguero's second-half penalty secured a 1-0 win over West Ham.

However, there have been times this season when they have looked stale. You want to win that game so desperately.

The Belgian nearly dropped off the face of the earth last season, struggling to impress on loan with Bundesliga side Wolfsburg. Marcus Rashford, who suffered a knock early on, was forced to hobble on with no substitutions available.

The German was also full of praise for Trent Alexander-Arnold, who providing three assists during the heavy win over the Hornets.

Can Liverpool go on and win the Premier League this season, or will Manchester City retain their title? But I understood 100pc what it means to the people because I had my derby when I was 10 years old and played against the village next to us.

Since I am only allowed to make five pointers in this weekly piece, and I'm spoilt for choice this time, I'm combining two games into one. We have a tough game at Molineux now'.

On Tuesday there were wins for Everton, Huddersfield, Leicester and Newcastle. "It [Origi's winner] changed the mood, of course, the confidence, of course".
