Why not? - Jimenez eyes Liverpool scalp after Man City upset

Ten-man Metropolis squandered a two-goal lead to lose 3-2 in direction of Wolves on Friday, leaving Pep Guardiola's facet third behind Leicester and Liverpool inside the Premier League desk.

Matt Doherty's 89th-minute strike capped Wolves' comeback after Adama Traore and Raul Jimenez had hauled the hosts level. You can always avoid conceding, but sometimes it's fatigue, it's tiredness, it's a lot of minutes to defend and it's hard sometimes.

"We are used to being at the top and now we are far away so we have to adjust mentally to that".

It is in odd circumstances that we reach what should be the biggest game of the weekend. We have to prepare, see how they are and how they feel.

There is no trophy handed out for that distinction, but I am starting to think this current team are on course to be crowned as just that if they add the Premier League title to their collection in the New Year.

"It's unrealistic to think about Liverpool, we think about Leicester". We are third and that is the situation.

Fernandinho, who has been replacing in the center due to the City's defensive injury problem this season, said: "We have to be realistic". We took advantage, but we could not defend it.

The PA also warned fans during the game they faced punishment if caught throwing objects.

"So, we are very excited, very happy, and we will enjoy this". We're going to play one different opponents now and might fight for the Champions League subsequent yr. We conceded a mistake in the second half for the goal but we didn't change our way and kept looking for solutions.

"There's no explanation, so all the decisions we make are going to be based on us - how we are".

So, given Jurgen Klopp's side could be 17 points clear of City, if they win their game in hand, the title race is surely all but over for Manchester City?
