Pep Guardiola Breaks Another Premier League Record

Pep Guardiola Breaks Another Premier League Record

It seems odd to say that about a club who floundered in the title race in each of the past two seasons but Manchester City's stranglehold on the English game appears only to be increasing.

City have not won in the Red half of Merseyside in the league for nearly 15 years.

Sunday's encounter with City at Anfield will be fourth-placed Liverpool's first match since the departure of Brazil playmaker Philippe Coutinho to Barcelona.

Any team willing to press and attack City have found success, and they have found the net. Sadio Mane, Mohamed Salah and Roberto Firmino still combine to form a risky attacking trident, and the addition of big-money center back Virgil van Dijk should help Liverpool both in the back and on set pieces, where City could be more vulnerable.

Liverpool's "Fab Four" might not have lasted long, but the trio of Mo Salah, Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino up front will cause enough menace on City's defensive line. Of all the mistakes in a haphazard approach to the summer transfer window - which ultimately cost Ronald Koeman his job - failing to sign a striker to replace Romelu Lukaku was the least forgivable. By this point, Alexis Sanchez could be playing for a team in Manchester (not necessarily City!), though, and from a pure talent standpoint, Arsenal simply doesn't hold a candle to City.

It should be noted that on that occasion - 1936-37 - City won the first of their four top-flight titles. You will know before I will. "There is always a leader, someone you can hang your hat on at Liverpool". The fact he has gone now and we have to think, "What have we got that is going to get the job done".

It was a remarkable December for Kane as he also broke Alan Shearer's calendar year record for Premier League goals taking his tally to 39 in 2017. He will surely be a strong contender for Player of the Year at the end of the season.




Moreno was Liverpool's first choice LB before getting injured.

"I want to be focused in what we are doing on the field".

Steve Wilson: "If Manchester City are to go unbeaten for the entire Premier League campaign, the number of high hurdles in their path are diminishing". Even in midweek, when City looked lackluster against Bristol City, they still managed to produce a late victor.

Can anybody stop Manchester City? "It is a completely different club now to the one I joined as a kid".

This Sunday the two go head-to-head in the semi-finals of the Continental Tyres Cup at Kingsmeadow, which means one of them will have to lose their unbeaten record.

City are 6-5 favourites with a draw at 27-10 and I think City would take a point now.
