Whipped up Liverpool, fighting Cardiff - what we learned from the Premier League

Matthaus, who won seven Bundesliga titles and the UEFA Cup with Bayern during his playing career, as well as the World Cup with Germany, is wary of the threat posed by Jurgen Klopp's side on the counter-attack.

And their performance after 30 matches in the 2018-19 season have seen Liverpool equal their joint-best campaign in English topflight. My mind is sharp and there is pressure but I'm strong mentally and we have to keep going.

"We did not have problems with confidence after the Everton game", he said. Hopefully that makes it slightly more interesting for you.

But what would Liverpool rather win?

Manchester City coach Pep Guardiola looked a anxious man as his side took to the pitch for the second half of their Premier League game at home to Watford on Saturday.

Interestingly, Liverpool's total point haul of 73 after 30 league matches is the Reds joint highest, level with the 1904-05 second tier and the 1987-88 First Division.

The club are yet to win the Premier League title and they desperately want to end that drought.

The opening goal was probably offside, but with no VAR in England until next season, the goal stood and City took three vital points.

While Southampton have three vital points in their battle to avoid the drop, thanks to goals from Yann Valery and an excellent free kick from James Ward Prouse, Tottenham have taken just one point from 12 to leave Pochettino questioning the mentality of some of his players.

Hello and welcome to our liveblog for Man City vs Schalke, a game that you'd really expect Pep Guardiola's side to win but which absolutely maybe won't be as easy as that.

"To score as many goals as possible, that's what we tried".

There were high winds and occasional driving rain at Anfield on Sunday, and things did not look good for Klopp's men when Ashley Westwood put the visitors 1-0 up in the sixth minute.
