Liverpool News – Jurgen Klopp sends message to critics
Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has warned second-placed Manchester City that his troops will hold their nerve and win the club’s first league title in nearly 30 years.
“Our tool to sort the situation is football. Our tool is football. That is the only thing we can do,” said Klopp ahead of Monday’s game with West Ham. Yes, there is pressure. There was pressure last year, a lot of pressure when we played Man City away in the quarter-finals of the Champions League, and we dealt with it.
“There was pressure at Rome, there was pressure in so many moments in the Premier League. We had to win each game because Chelsea were constantly chasing us. That is the only way we can do it.”
Liverpool News – Gary Neville rules out Reds’ staying power
Former Manchester United defender Gary Neville believes Liverpool will succumb to the mounting pressure on them if the title race goes right down to the wire.
“They are still in this title race, five points is not a major lead by any stretch of the imagination, it can be gone in two games,” he told Sky Sports News.
“And it will just go away and move away from Liverpool if they make a mistake or two.
“For City, they just have to keep the pressure on. If City keep close within the last five games, I think they will win it.
“If it comes down to nerve in the last five games, City will win it.
“But I do think at this moment of time that City are making mistakes and Liverpool look like they are making less.
“And Liverpool could pull clear a little bit and that could be a problem for City, they might just get far enough in front to be able to cause City a bigger problem.”
