Liverpool vs Manchester City: The tone of the title fight is getting tougher – Jurgen Klopp and Pep Guardiola bother

Neither of them seemed happy after last weekend. While Jurgen Klopp has been ‘echoing’ about Tottenham Hotspur’s style of play, who earned a point on the road to Anfield (1-1) with wall tactics, Pep Guardiola (again) complained about a lack of support in the title fight handed to him by the Skyblues, who were On their way to the championship, they complained of being received by the audience.
In an interview after their 5-0 win over Newcastle United, the Catalan side dismayed the Reds and dismissed the club’s proud history in the Premier League. “Everyone in this country is with Liverpool – including the media and everyone,” Guardiola told beIn Sports.

The Catalan explained that this was mainly due to the “amazing history in European competitions” – and sent a mid-size tip: “Not in the Premier League, they have only won one title in 30 years”.

On the other hand, Man City have the best chance of winning their fourth title in the past five years thanks to the Reds’ tie at the weekend. The super-rich club in the title race was “eleven or twelve” – ​​not to mention the miraculous financial injection that catapulted City from the middle class into the ranks of the best clubs in the world at the start of the 2000s.

Klopp laughs at Guardiola’s advice

“I know we feel uncomfortable at times,” Guardiola added. “But I don’t care if people give him more to Liverpool than we give him. Not a problem.”

On Monday, Klopp responded to the advice – and did so in the usual normal fashion. “I live in Liverpool, yes, a lot of people want us to win the league here, but here it is only 50 percent,” Klopp joked at a press conference. That’s not the feeling I get when we play in other stadiums.”

Klopp even expressed his understanding for Guardiola. “Something like that happened to me as a coach, of course we are affected by the situation,” said the former Serie A coach. “I don’t know what situation Pep was in. Getting out of the Champions League is difficult and after that, of course, Liverpool reached the final.”

Man City has only one chance to win the title

No wonder the sound is at least a little harsher. The season’s final deadline is approaching, and in the Premier League, leaders Manchester City are separated from Liverpool and chased by just three points – with three games remaining.

For City, the championship is the only title left to win this season. In the Champions League, Guardiola’s side had to cope with a last-minute semi-final exit at Real Madrid during the week (1-3 afterwards, 4-3 in the first leg). At the start of extra time in regular time, they were leading 1-0 and looked like the sure winners. In the FA Cup, it also ended in the semi-finals (2: 3 against Liverpool), in the Carabao Cup (the League Cup) even in the fourth round against West Ham United (3: 5 on penalties).

Liverpool is looking at the quartet

On the other hand, Liverpool still have chances to win the quadruple title of the League title, the Champions League, the FA Cup and the Carabao Cup, which they have already won in a dramatic way (11:10 BC against Chelsea).

The fact that Liverpool can still win one cup or the other does not mean that a lost championship battle will be less damaging. The Premier League title is special because it requires consistent performance over the course of a year. It may be the hardest to win.

In contrast, the Champions League, like the FA Cup, would not be the worst consolation.

Manchester City – the rest of the program: Wolverhampton (A), West Ham United (A), Aston Villa (At home).

Liverpool – remaining programme: Aston Villa (A), Southampton (A), and Wolverhampton (H).
