This is their first  top-fight title since 1990, have lost just once in the league all season but still Pep Guardiola’s defending champions by a point with three games remaining.

Liverpool, who will host Huddersfield on Friday, told reporters at his pre-match press conference that he was calm while watching City’s victory 2-0 against Manchester United at Old Trafford on Wednesday.

“It was the result that I expected, United tried whatever they can, in the first half especially, they were bit unlucky in one or two moments but then over 95 minutes it was clear that they can’t stand City at the moment so I was not surprised at the moment” Said the German

 Which he also added that he agreed with Guardiola that the both teams deserve to win the Premier League but that there could be just one Champion. “But we don’t play for being champions at the end of the season. Yes, it’s a main, a big target. This team tires it for the first time and we are obviously pretty close in the moment and we still have the chance to do it. We will see what happens at the end of the season.

“We want to play the best football we can play every single day, that’s truth, sometimes we have to accept It didn’t happen but we still try it  and that’s all what we are interested in and at the end of the season you will see where you end up. If we don’t do it we will do it, if we do not do it there are no regrets as long as we give always our best. I saw that in the whole season from the boys and still this season, however it ends up, is only the first step on that area. We are not the finished article.”
