Jurgen Klopp says Liverpool will not change Premier League title race approach

Both teams have 27 points available to them.

As a Liverpool captain, Steven Gerrard won nearly every trophy bar the Premier League and despite urging Jurgen Klopp's men to end the club's 29-year wait for the title this season he admits it will not ease his personal pain.

"I think it was a foul but there are more serious fouls in the history of football and we have to react better". I can imagine how much it would mean to them to win the Premier League this season and it will be interesting to see if the players can handle that pressure if hope turns into disappointment or expectation depending on how Liverpool perform in the next few weeks.

Beating Watford at home would move City four points clear at the top, with Liverpool not in action until it welcomes Burnley to Anfield on Sunday.

"We are positive - how couldn't we be positive?"

"We had a complete training week and actually that's how it is", Klopp told BT Sport beforehand. He can equal Alan Shearer's record of scoring 50 goals for a single club faster than any other player (66 games). The dynamic (at the top of the table) changed a little bit - now we are second, they are first.

"We'll give everything we have, and they probably will, too".

The England midfielder, who has been sidelined for almost a year with a knee injury, could feature for the under 23s this week and his return would be a huge boost in the run-in. "We did that. We kept going and we were ruthless when the chances came".

"Last Tuesday we were not a million miles away but we were off".

Klopp also will need his attackers to recover their verve, as the Reds have scored more than one goal in just three of the 11 games they've played in 2019.

Mane has scored in each of his last five home Premier League games for Liverpool, netting six goals in total.

Mane should have put the finishing touches on victory but somehow hit the crossbar from three yards from Trent Alexander-Arnold's low cross with Salah, still searching for his 50th league goal for the club, denied by Heaton.

"We had the ideal mixture of fighting the opponent, fighting the circumstances and playing football". City head into gameweek 30 with a one-point advantage.

"I said it last time as well - if you have a ticket for the stadium, go to bed at 10pm latest on Saturday night, don't drink and be on your toes from the first until the last second!"

Cardiff City, now third-from-bottom, appear to have run out of steam just at the wrong time and host West Ham United on Saturday trying to snap a three-match losing run.
