The Merseyside outfit will look to reclaim top spot in the Premier League after Manchester City relegated Liverpool FC to second place thanks to their derby win mid-week.

"Someone told me that a supporter had said playing Champions League games that kick off in daylight is what Liverpool supporters want all the time because it means you're playing these games at the end of April and May, which is the business end".

"Liverpool realise to win the Premier League right now you have to make a lot of points".

The Reds face the Catalan giants in the semi-finals, which prompted former Liverpool forward Suarez to reflect on his old side's attitude in their last title-chase in 2014.

"We don't only play for being champion at the end of the season".

Pep Guardiola admitted he was delighted to see another record tumble when Leroy Sane scored Manchester City's 157th goal of the campaign against Manchester United.

It could well ensure the following:. that 2-1 defeat against Manchester City could have mathematically denied them the title, a centurion season, and an invincible season. that January/February nervous wobble, when there was so much talk of "bottling it", could have seen them lose the decisive lead. The League Cup has already been won, the Premier League title is within reach and the club will close its season in the FA Cup final vs. Watford on May 18.

Liverpool need to win out and have Man City drop points somewhere.

Jürgen Klopp described his joy at being able to name Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain in Liverpool's matchday squad for the first time in over a year as "unbelievable".

We are probably not at a point yet when Emery will start to become frustrated but if he is not backed properly in the next couple of transfer windows and we finish next season no better than this season then watch the links to other clubs start to gain momentum.

"One of us, it's like with the Highlander, will be there at the end", said a buoyant Klopp, referring to the famous phrase from the film - "There can be only one".

Having suffered two consecutive humbling losses to Everton and Manchester City, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side come into the game with their confidence at a low, whilst the Blues blew a great chance themselves when they managed just a draw to Burnley at Stamford Bridge.

"But I want to try and put Liverpool to one side because of the importance of Saturday's game".

The likes of Marco Reus, Mario Gotze and Jadon Sancho have all been in inspired form in recent weeks and were instrumental in their side's 4-0 victory over Freiburg last time out.

"We win titles because we have extraordinary players". "We don't only play to be champions".
