Liverpool, Spurs face crucial derby battles as title hots up

Merson and Klopp

Questions were asked about Liverpool's spluttering attack after four draws in five matches, including goalless stalemates with Manchester United and Bayern Munich, with suggestions they were cracking under the pressure of challenging for their first English crown since 1990.

Origi's famous stoppage-time victor earned Liverpool a priceless 1-0 win in the derby at Anfield in December, leading to scenes of unbridled joy.

Jurgen Klopp was delighted with Trent Alexander-Arnold's precision passing in Liverpool FC's 5-0 victory over Watford on Wednesday night.

Mane's cheeky back-heel had the Liverpool star trending on social media, with fans in awe of his remarkably bold effort. Sadio (Mane) scored a brilliant goal.

"An iron grip on the game and a moment of sheer nonchalance from Sadio Mane". I managed my last derby in December.

Mane told Liverpoolfc.com: "It was my first time since I came to Liverpool I played centrally".

But there's also the Rome derby to look forward to as Lazio and Roma go head to head with both teams fighting for a top four spot. It's always about showing reactions, but not reactions of the things we are talking about.

Bernie Sanders joins 2020 race, to defeat ‘racist’ Donald Trump
Sanders joins crowded field of Democrats in 2020 race; reaction and analysis from the "Special Report" All-Star panel. Bernie Sanders announced Tuesday that he will once again run for the opportunity to challenge Donald Trump .

He knows that when his team deliver "a good example of how football should look", they have every chance of ending 29 years of title hurt.

Just a point separates the two battlers, and those who trip on this last set of hurdles will surely concede the championship to the other; Manchester City aiming to retain after winning the league in 17/18 and their fourth in seven years, Liverpool striving to end their near-30-year hoodoo without being at the pinnacle of English football.

"We should have scored at the beginning of the game and then it would have been a bit easier to play, but the way we started to play I think was the right way".

Tottenham's title bid disintegrated at Stamford Bridge against a Chelsea side that didn't contain the world's most expensive goalkeeper. Of course, Gundo [Ilkay Gundogan] played in that position many times last season and this season so it is normal that he can help us for the next games.

Defending champions City finally broke the resistance of West Ham at the Etihad Stadium in the second half to stay just one point behind Liverpool, while third-placed Tottenham slipped to a damaging 2-0 defeat at Chelsea.

The Gunners had five different scorers with Mesut Ozil, Henrikh Mkhitaryan, Laurent Koscielny, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Alexandre Lacazette all finding the net.

Lys Mousset briefly gave Bournemouth hope before half-time, but Ozil and Mkhitaryan combined once more to tee up Laurent Koscielny to make it 3-1 before Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Alexandre Lacazette rounded off an eighth straight Premier League win at the Emirates for Emery's men.
