Liverpool still in box seat despite City loss - former captains

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp was not happy with Vincent Kompany's first half challenge that left Mohamed Salah in agony

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp was not happy with Vincent Kompany's first half challenge that left Mohamed Salah in agony

The FA Cup third round this weekend provides a break from the league campaign.

City's recent shock back-to-back defeats to Crystal Palace and Leicester had allowed Liverpool to amass a commanding lead in their quest to win a first title since 1990.

Van Dijk insists Liverpool are perfectly capable of bouncing back from defeat in a Premier League season which has been one huge upward curve and they remain calm about what the result means for their chances of ending a 29-year wait for the title.

Check out the goal-line technology image of the ball being just 11 millimetres from crossing the line for the score that would have put Liverpool ahead.

And Liverpool could end up forking out to ensure they have enough troops available for their title battle.

We have to try our best in every game we play and so far, not only this season but especially this season, that's what the boys did - and that's what we will try again and again and again and we will see what happens. Nuno Espirito Santo will want his team to be in their best defensive form, and also be sharp at the front.

Former Liverpool star Graeme Souness has criticised Fabinho, admitting he is yet to be replaced by the former Monaco man.

After after the break, Leroy Sane's shot cannoned off the other post of the same goal and went in for the victor.

City switch their attention from their pursuit of Premier League leaders Liverpool to domestic cup football in the coming days.

The report also affirms that the A50 will be powered by Samsung's Exynos 7 9610 chipset with four Cortex-A73 cores and four A53s. The A50 will reportedly hit the market in two variants - 64 GB storage and 128 GB storage - and likely run on Android 9 Pie.

Will Jurgen Klopp make big changes from the City match? His team selection should be an indication.

Five top-flight teams followed United into the last 32, among them titleholder Chelsea after its 2-0 home win over second-tier Nottingham Forest.

This will be the seventh FA Cup meeting between Wolves and Liverpool - Wolves have won four of the previous six, including the last such meeting in January 2017 (2- 1 at Anfield). See all the build to a game the whole world was watching.

"Of course Liverpool are out of the Carabao Cup, so they have more time to prepare for the Premier League, but (for us) it is what it is".

Manchester City will be careful not to dwell on this victory longer than they should. For someone who is not a forward, that is a good return.

The Reds have won the competition a massive seven times throughout their history - most recently in the 2005/06 season - and will use this fixture as a chance to offer some squad players minutes, with the likes of Mohamed Salah, Roberto Firmino and Sadio Mane likely to be rested for future matches.

For Wolves, Romain Saiss and Diogo Jota have both recovered from injury and will come into contention on Monday night.

If Klopp does make lots of changes that still means his defence could feature Joe Gomez and Alberto Moreno, his midfield at least two of Jordan Henderson, Adam Lallana, Naby Keita or Fabinho, and an attack with Daniel Sturridge and Zherdan Shaqiri.
