Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp does not Manchester City will struggle if they have to chase them in the title race

Liverpool trail the champions by a single point with just eight games remaining, but with City in FA Cup action at Swansea this weekend, they can put the pressure back on Pep Guardiola's side and take a psychological boost into the two-week break before the title battle resumes.

The Reds now sit second in the Premier League - one point behind Manchester City - after letting slip a five-point lead with draws against West Ham, Manchester United and Everton in recent weeks.

Liverpool's victory over Bayern Munich in the last 16 means England will now provide four of the teams in today's quarter-final draw, with Manchester City, Manchester United and Tottenham the other Premier League sides still competing in the biggest club tournament in the world.

"We have a set a bar for this wonderful club that we really are back on the landscape of top global football".

"It is a wonderful Champions League night for Liverpool again and that's good". Repeat up to 5 times to receive maximum €/£100 bonus.

Meanwhile, former Bayern president Franz Beckenbauer said before the match that he would like Klopp to return to Germany in the future to manage the Bavarian giants. "I could write a book about his skills, about his strength, how much I like him, what a fantastic person he is", said the Reds boss of his £75million man.

Red Bull will be entering their new Honda era with Dutch hopeful Max Verstappen and Frenchman Pierre Gasly at the helm. Formula One is changing its scoring system to award a point to the driver who sets the fastest race lap.

This should be the flawless game for Salah to find his shooting boots and break that six game duck, while we may even see a resurrection of Shaqiri in light of Jordan Henderson's injury. In fact, having allowed 17 goals thus far, they are now on pace to concede just 21 goals by the end of the campaign, which would make them the best Premier League defense since Chelsea in 2004/05!

"I don't want to talk exactly what we will do but I don't think this is a team at the moment where we have to spend the big money or whatever".

"Not all teams are better in the Premier League than in the Bundesliga", said Klopp.

"We will have plenty of information and that's what you need before a game, but you still have to play it". I'm not searching to be remembered in 50 years or whatever people speak about me.

"It is good that we split the goals a little bit, absolutely it's good".

Before Liverpool splashed the cash on Virgil van Dijk in the January of 2018, the most expensive transfer for a centre-back in football history was the £40 million that PSG paid for Chelsea's David Luiz. "Now we know it, let's prepare". "Checks were positive but we have to see if it stays positive", Klopp added.
