Thanks to their 2-0 win over Watford on Saturday at Anfield during the 31st day of the Premier League, Liverpool temporarily seized the top spot from Manchester City, who travel to Burnley at 4pm.
The Reds do the job. And Manchester City is now under pressure. While the English champions title has been in the running for Pep Guardiola’s side, Liverpool now seem in a position to snatch the national title from them. This Saturday, Jurgen Klopp’s players beat Watford 2-0 at Anfield, and scored an impressive 10th consecutive time in the Premier League. A victory was made thanks to a goal from Diogo Jota’s header, a good cross was sent by Joe Gomez (22) and a penalty kick was rounded by Fabinho after a foul on the Portuguese striker at the end of the match (89).
Who will be at the top of the Liverpool-City match in a week?
Thanks to this new success, Liverpool temporarily took first place in the standings, two points behind Manchester City. So Pep Guardiola’s players will have to beat Burnley (19 in PL) in his garden (kick-off at 4pm) if they don’t want to cede control of the championship to their opponent. The stakes are even more important, as the two title contenders next Sunday face a huge showdown of the season at the Etihad Stadium (5:30pm live on RMC Sport 1).
