EPL: Leaders Liverpool face derby test as title race heats up

EPL: Leaders Liverpool face derby test as title race heats up

Georginio Wijnaldum insists Liverpool never lost belief in their ability to blow away opponents after reigniting their title bid ahead of their clash at Everton. City to win to nil is 11/10 with the Sportsbook and that's more than fair but I like Manchester City to win both halves at around the 6/4 mark given they've achieved that in five of their last six Premier League victories, and they look a very decent price at around [2.8] on the handicap -2 goals.

He added: "If you ask me as a manager now, and all our players if we have something in our minds to give to our fans, all of us would answer three points on Sunday".

"How Mo [Salah] played was unbelievable".

"Here we're completely focused on each game and trying to win each game as it comes".

"Everton have developed a mental problem in games against Liverpool now, but in recent times, they have tried to beat Liverpool by taking them on and, when you face a team with better players, that isn't going to work".

As boss of the Capital outfit Lennon had, of course, made life hard for his old club when they visited the north east of Edinburgh while McNulty was a player he was pursuing with some vigour ahead of the January transfer deadline as he sought to add greater firepower to his frontline.

With Liverpool comfortable winners at home to Watford, the City faithful endured a nervy finish but the win was well-deserved and it was just one of those nights in front of goal. We see many other managers do the same before a big fixture.

"If we can perform in the level we performed at in December, we will be very good". We draw against Bayern and United and everybody talks about things I don't understand.


Attacker Roberto Firmino, who missed the game with the Hornets, has been described as "in contention" to play against Everton (club's official website).

Origi is the biggest threat to Everton after scoring that victor in December!

Reds boss Jurgen Klopp said: "The boys showed how much they enjoy the game and the situation".

"I believe they will stay there, but I think they have to win tomorrow to be able to do that". He's a composed figure in the team and is becoming a fan favourite.

"Everyone from the beginning of the season should be satisfied with the possibility of playing against Arsenal at Wembley with the gap at four points".

Liverpool got back to winning ways after back-to-back draws by thumping Watford 5-0 at Anfield to remain one point ahead of City, who edged out West Ham 1-0 at the Etihad Stadium.

Mane's second came from the same area with Salah cutting Watford to shreds down the right allowing Alexander-Arnold to swing over another flawless ball.

Watford are also on course to set a number of club records in the Premier League. It shows us it is a hard match.
