Klopp is ‘smiley’ and calm - Liverpool defender Robertson

Liverpool news Michael Owen accuses fans of making team NERVOUS

Liverpool were seven points ahead a few weeks ago, but now City are definitely favourites for the title from what I am seeing.

Liverpool play Bayern Munich in the Champions League last 16 on February 19 before travelling to Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's unbeaten Manchester United side - live on Sky Sports Premier League - on February 24. "Whether we draw, win or lose it doesn't change".

For the first time since around Christmas, following that mauling of Chelsea, I'm finally, cautiously confident Pep Guardiola's men will clinch the Premier League title.

Liverpool ended the week in the second position, after Manchester city thrashed a lackluster Chelsea side at the Etihad stadium on Sunday.

Liverpool have a history of letting things slip and their trips to Old Trafford and Goodison Park now have added narrative. However, the Championship has seen a mammoth 985 goals this so far this season, with Sheffield United's Billy Sharp racking up 22 goals and Norwich's Teemu Pukki scoring 20!.

"I remember those first years going for titles and the weight of expectation and thinking "we have to try to get over the line" and you carry it with you every minute of every day". Nobody would have predicted last season's 13th-placed and 14th-placed clubs, Leeds United and Norwich City, to be occupying the summit of the table just less than a year later. I think that's how it will have to be for Liverpool. They are cracking opponents' heads open and feasting on the goo inside.

Diana Ross Celebrates 75th Birthday With Family and on Grammy Stage
But the limelight was nearly stolen from right under her nose, by her own grandson - 9-year-old Raif , the son of her eldest daughter, Rhonda Ross Kendrick , 47.

And he claimed the most impressive part of City's play was how they set up when they have not got the ball.

The Reds, who have only lost once in the league all season, didn't slip up again when Bournemouth visited Anfield on Saturday, winning 3-0 against a team who have now been beaten in 10 of their 13 away games.

Speaking on his podcast, he explained that Manchester City were now favourites and that Liverpool were in for a "major battle".

It will be because of these games (and squad depth) that they are not champions this season and that will be a shame. They are just unstoppable. Liverpool are behind the Cityzens on goal difference, but do have a game in hand.

I don't mean unstoppable in the fact that they cant lose or draw the odd game but the tenacity in which they attack every single game will see them victorious on more occasions than anyone else during the run-in, regardless of who they play.
