7pts isn't insurmountable however Liverpool seems more up for the task to "grind" out wins while City has been putting in some dodgy performances lately...it's like having one of their best players back in DeBruyne has unbalanced the team some how.

As a Liverpool fan I was losing my mind watching this game. Big game for the reds against Leicester tomorrow. 3 points would be massive

That will happened when you thinking oh we can beat lesser teams 9-0, 6-0. New Castle deserve the credit more because they have a strong mentality.

These clowns all said Man City will storm away with league before Christmas. You win league titles in May not before Christmas.

Liverpool have played 23 games and have 60 points so far out of a possible 69. That means in 23 games this season they’ve dropped 9 points. If they win tomorrow and go up 7pts, City is gonna have to hope that in the remaining 15 league games Liverpool have to drop 7. I don’t see that happening unless VVD or Salah get injured.

Why are everyone saying that Liverpool are gonna win the league???
If anything the city loss to Newcastle shows that any team can lose to any team regardless if league position.
I'm a Liverpool supporter and dream of a league title but guys let's not get too arrogant and assume we've already won it. Lets just keep our heads and take each match as it comes coz there's a long way to go.
If pep doesn't win pl this season, which is highly likely. Then he will have same no. Of trophies Pellegrini had after 3 season. And Pellegrini was made to quit his job. Also pep has spent almost the double amount of money. Why he is getting the easy ride? Mournhio said that " attacking football and possession football are used as to execuse for not winning the trophy".

Lol, 4 losses in the league already (5 including the ucl) and they're supposed to be ucl favourites? they cant even reach a ucl final. Favourites are definitely barca, madrid, liverpool and juve. (if madrid find some form and if liverpool arent so focused on the league at the end of the season)

It means Liverpool have won the league
If anything City's loss makes me more nervous. I've been disappointed a few times too many to start taking anything for granted.

As a MC, I would say MC is playing half hearted compared to last season. Liverpool deserve the title. They wont drop many points.

As a liverpool fan I'm never sure what Leicester will bring to the table, will they be good? Will they not? It's so difficult to know and for this reason, the inconsistency of their team I always get a bit nervous when facing them. I can imagine fans of the other big teams feel the same way

People need to understand that Man City as a team are mentally weak. Their mental strength is probably one of the weakest in the Premier league that's why they capitulate under pressure so easily. However in terms of ability they are probably top 3 in world football that's they win so many games and kill them off before they even begin but the mental strength is woeful and that's what's really important in order to carry your team through seasons and cup competitions.

As city fan, soo disappointed.
Deserved the result for the way it was played.
Would love to c Sane play full time.
It always annoys me when they say that teams ply beautiful football for the sake of it. Pep will be the first to say that that having a lot of possession serves many purposes, one of which is to move defenders out of positions with quick ball movement, give and go’s. etc

You play “beautiful football” because more often than not, it gives you a better chance to win. It doesn’t mean you will always win, however. Just like creating chances, it doesn’t always mean that the team that creates the most chances always wins. Sometimes a team can absorb pressure and nick a goal late on. However, you’re less likely to win using that strategy.

Man city have assembled the most expensive team ever. Oil money buys you trophies. Buys the best players buys the best manager buys the highest wages. Doesn't buy heart and soul. Man city players are greedy money grappin missionaries who probably didn't know city existed until they got bought out by money no object oil barons. Liverpool have history. Fans have passion. City should be walking every competition the amount of money they spend is obscene.
Ali Bryte
Ali Bryte:
I always get confused when I read some of the comments about City and Pep. Its as if loosing a game is only meant for United, Chelsea and Arsenal. They are fighting to retain a title and it's bit easy. When City wins they are the best but we easily forget that all the other teams have also spent Sims of money including Lpool. There's 13 matches to play, anything can happen, even today . So let's stop attacking Pep.
Let's enjoy the game.
They always have the same indignant, dour tone on this program. Fortunately, I am willing to listen to any old twats talk about football when I am having a beer on a day off.

Love In The House:
I kept saying this. City as a club/team are not built on that drive, determination, grit, know how to grind out or come from behind to get a result because its a overnight team put together by spending ridiculous amounts. Thats why City can and will never be on the level of Manchester United, Liverpool, Arsenal etc, who have that embedded in their history and DNA. Money can't by class PERIOD!!! #SmallClubMentality

How many goals they scored in January alone ?!
Plenty of football left this season. Even as a Liverpool fan who enjoyed city losing, it counts for nothing if we don’t win our games. Starting with Leicester who have beaten Chelsea and Man City already. So defo not a given.

huge L for Pep, his season is 100% considered a failure if he fails to retain or even a CL, has the squad to, but this guy sets up poorly in the CL, we've seen the 3 at the back trick, wonder what else he'll try to pull - with that said the squad isn't that good talent wise, the players are very system reliant
It means they lost a game.
