Liverpool fullback Robertson: Man City unlikely to be stopped

Liverpool could secure 97 points and finish second

Jordan Henderson says the Liverpool players will watch Monday's Premier League clash between Manchester City and Leicester City praying for a miracle that might give them an edge in the title race.

The City boss now feels Vardy is thriving under new manager Brendan Rodgers.

Liverpool have had one of the greatest Premier League seasons since the competition began, racking up 94 points with a game to go.

Few managers know Barcelona and Liverpool - who will meet in the Champions League semfinal this week - better than Josep Guardiola.

Rodgers, who managed Liverpool to their last title challenge in 2013-14, said sentiment for his former club would play no part.

City will fall short of the 100-point total they finished last season with, yet Guardiola believes his side have matched the levels of 2017-18 again. That's why being there [in contention] is incredible. It's sad that one team has to finish second, but that's football - you can only have one victor.

"We've now only two important games that we must win in order to retain the Premier League title - we need two more wins!" I wouldn't say 100 points was bad, but you get credit based on how huge your rival is.

"What's important is at Burnley we didn't concede one shot on target or one corner away".

Guardiola: Proud of team.

"In my career as a manager, I played against incredible sides", Guardiola told The Telegraph. "There are two that were "wow". "One is Barcelona with Luis Enrique, with Neymar, Messi and Suarez up front - the other is this Liverpool".

"The other is this Liverpool".

"That's why being there, with it in our hands, fighting against them until the end, after being seven points behind - it's incredible what we have done".

Tottenham can now focus on overturning a 1-0 first-leg deficit against Ajax in the Champions League semi-finals on Wednesday.

The pair are the only two Premier League clubs valued at more than £2 billion. "They have to have it in their heads and feet", he said. It means it goes to the last day and it means City have to keep providing the answers.

"And especially where we have come from, getting 100 points and still being there".

Leicester City striker Jamie Vardy can "hurt" Manchester City and put a major dent in their quest to defend the Premier League title, according to Brendan Rodgers.

However, Pep Guardiola will be without Kevin de Bruyne and may also be unable to call upon Benjamin Mendy and Fernandinho against the Foxes.

"Last season was incredible", he said.

Their record against teams outside the top six is phenomenal, while they've still only lost one game this season, away to City.
