Barnes confident Liverpool can handle title pressure

I don't know. We will see. "I think in his career he's doing the best in all the coaches in the world".

While it's a amusing tweet and we're well in favour of footballers having fun on social media, it's just a bit daft from Walker isn't it?

City face a busy Premier League week as they attempt to reduce Liverpool's lead, with the Arsenal match followed by a trip to Everton on Wednesday and a home fixture against Chelsea the following Sunday.

City faced the prospect of slipping seven points behind Liverpool after a surprising 2-1 defeat at relegation-threatened Newcastle on Tuesday, and Guardiola has told his players that he expects a significant improvement when Arsenal visit the Etihad Stadium on Sunday.

Klopp said he was not aware of the tweet, but when told about it, said: "I can not help that".

But Leicester equalised on the stroke of half-time through Harry Maguire and Liverpool endured some nervous moments in the second half as they bid to win a first league title since 1990, and 19th overall.

"City last season did not give anybody encouragement".

Liverpool defender Virgil van Dijk has urged patience as the pressure increases in the title run-in.

If you're convicting murderers, it's one thing. " Once you've got this in your blood, it's hard to get rid of ", Christie said. But as Colbert covered last week , that was put on hold during the government shutdown. "He didn't have a plan", said Christie.

The England international's first of six Premier League appearances came towards the end of the 2015-16, but the then-youngster failed to score in his 82 minutes on the pitch.

The injury issues are a major blow for Liverpool and put Klopp's decision to loan Nathaniel Clyne to Bournemouth early in the January transfer window further in question.

Everyone is disappointed, but I think five points is also good. That is a positive because they are in the title race, but it can wear you down and your legs start to go. "It was full of ice obviously, but they need to deal with that as well".

"So they will have to rely on Jurgen Klopp and his experiences with Dortmund to be able to navigate and maybe some of the players' experience from last time that they had under Brendan Rodgers to navigate where they went wrong, how they made mistakes, how they can get it right this time".

"We were just preparing for the game: in the morning we trained and nobody talked about it".

Leicester manager Claude Puel had insisted before kick-off that his side would, as they had done before, raise their game against a leading club.

"It was clear that our groundstaff tried to clear it but they didn't have enough manpower".
