Manchester City and Liverpool break Premier League ground

Liverpool can still reach the 97-point mark with victories in their final two games against Newcastle away and Wolves at home, which would make that total either the second or third highest points haul in Premier League history.

City have now won 12 consecutive Premier League games but they had to work to maintain their composure against the Clarets and broke through with an uncharacteristically scrappy goal.

"That might sound like a grand statement when you reflect on Liverpool teams that won trophy after trophy in the 1970s and 1980s, but I honestly feel this team should be placed alongside the legend of the club, even if they finish second in the Premier League title race".

"But that (Man City vs Burnley) was a championship-winning performance from Manchester City".

"Seeing them line up with five at the back at home against City on Wednesday was nearly an admission that they could not afford to lose that game, but they really need to win this one to keep alive their hopes of making the top four". He is simply working on the assumption Liverpool will take maximum points.

Clarets defender Matt Lowton got back in to hook the ball clear, and in real-time, it looked as though he might just have done enough to prevent the ball going over the line.

"Leicester could struggle to keep him because of the fact that other clubs may want him". "Their frustration in that game was obvious, and I think they might find this match is little bit more open".

"I think it was over the line!" he said.

He insisted: 'It is still going to be a brilliant season for Liverpool. It is very close, City were 19 points clear last season. You've got to hand it to them.

"Now it's who handles the pressure more, who is more stable, and thinking every single second that it doesn't matter if you lose". It is what it is'. They still remain in the hunt for Champions League glory, and face Barcelona in the semi-finals.
