Liverpool-Man City title run-in continues

Defending champions City, after 12 straight wins, are on 92 points, one clear of relentless Liverpool, who have lost just once in the league all season.

Liverpool were beaten 3-0 at the Nou Camp in the first leg of their semi-final in midweek.

Newcastle United boss Rafael Benitez says his side will not do his former club Liverpool any favours when they host the title-chasers on Saturday. "I've seen this Leicester team play and they're a decent team", he told Sky Sports.

"They fought a lot this season".

That isn't how the Newcastle manager works, and actually if he can get a decent tune out of his side here and showcase what they can do, and what they could possibly achieve with a little more reinforcement, it might be in his best interests moving forward.

"I can not imagine them not wanting to win the game, I don't have doubts the players and manager will want to win".


Were Leicester to get a result at the home of the champions, though, it would not be taken particularly well, especially by those who Raheem Sterling became the voice of in the BT Sport Industry Awards.

In addition, Guardiola also stated that Manchester City's consistency of challenging to various titles - in both domestic and European competitions - is down to their enormous winning mentality. They're exciting games to be involved in. "The Leicester players will not come here for their holidays".

"We needed this kind of player, an offensive player who is quite good in defending as well, because we can not ignore the quality of Barcelona obviously".

So Leicester fans have a choice to make here: Do they need a win or do they need Liverpool to not win the title?

David De Gea started in goal and he went on to repay his manager with another mistake for the Chelsea goal scored by Marcos Alonso as both sides played out a 1-1 draw at Old Trafford on Sunday evening. "All of them want to do a good performance".
