Pep's City Suffer Defeat At Liverpool

Jurgen Klopp manager of Liverpool and Josep Guardiola Manager of Manchester City. Liverpool and Manchester City meet in a Premier League match at Anfleid

In such a competitive season, City could finish sixth as easily as they could finish first. It is what it is.

Those chances sparked the visitors' most convincing spell of the contest, tempo suddenly injected into their play, and Wijnaldum unwittingly blocked from Kevin De Bruyne.

Leicester have been, without question, the most unpredictable Premier League team of the past three seasons, so placing a bet on them always feels courageous to a degree. Raheem Sterling, meanwhile, did improve in the second half at Anfield after a poor first 45 minutes, but continues to disappoint when he has the ball in the final third.

But the former Barcelona and Bayern coach said he felt the game had been "equal" with both sides struggling to create clear-cut opportunities. The goal made it hard against a team who use the counter attack like a master.

Brazilian midfielder Coutinho has been a key figure in the Reds' impressive first half of the season but he has been forced to watch from the sidelines since he injured his ankle in a home match against Sunderland on November 26.

However, the England international's career has been reignited since Guardiola took over at the Etihad Stadium and he has recaptured the kind of form which persuaded City to make such a sizable outlay. Against Manchester City, the 28-year-old produced another big performance when it mattered, with his role in Wijnaldum's early opening goal an example of his growing confidence and maturity.

Former German worldwide Hamann, who played 191 times for Liverpool and 54 for City, backs such public displays of emotion, believing they illustrate the team spirit that his compatriot has engendered.

Aaron Rodgers uses his legs to stretch lead
The Green Bay Packers have won four games in a row, thanks in large part to some outstanding play by Aaron Rodgers . The defensive standout has been relegated to a situational role the last two games because of the injury.

"It's obviously very important to get all three points on Saturday to keep us as close to (leaders) Chelsea as possible".

"Maybe Klopp is the best manager in the world at creating teams who attack the back four with so many players, from nearly anywhere on the pitch". Nobody really thinks we can do it. It was a wonderful goal.

"They know they can be 2-0 down in 20 minutes".

"I know everyone talks about our defence". He has been on a bit of a goal drought, with his last Premier League goal coming in September against Bournemouth, but he has still been productive since then with seven assists in that time.

"The way Jurgen Klopp celebrates with his players makes him stand out in the Premier League", Hamann said. Tonight the concentration level was outstanding.

"In my career as a manger I never expect what is going to happen". The defensive intent of this is obvious: by winning the ball back high up the field and far away from your own goal, you reduce the risk of being punished defensively.
