After a run of four draws in their past six league games, Liverpool ended the weekend behind City for the first time in three months having played the same number of games as Pep Guardiola's defending champions.
"We want the league and we will be disappointed if that does not happen but we can not forget the contender we face with Liverpool".
"I think Hazard is the best player in the Premier League and he fits the profile of what Real Madrid are looking for", Pires said, per the Express.
"I like to play in these games but we came here for three points and we didn't get them". I always thought that if Liverpool could win the league this season then they'd need a clean fixture list.
Klopp also cited the weather, specifically the wind, among the reasons for his side's failure to claim a victory at Goodison Park that would have taken them a point above champions Manchester City.
"I don't think they had a real chance".
Jose Mourinho advises Jurgen Klopp to remain positive and reminds that "City are not champions".
Pele revealed Monday on Twitter he believes Liverpool will win this season's Premier League title. The pressure has been on City because they are expected to retain the title.
Despite multiple chances to win the game, the Reds were unable to take charge and win it.
"They are doing incredibly well and we are the same".
"I felt Liverpool huffed and puffed for the majority of the game".
"We're playing as well as we can, nothing is going to take away from that", Kompany told reporters. "Nothing happened really, apart from that we have one point more and that's still positive".
