 Man City blow it again.

Almost a Manchester double tonight but Utd save a point in injury time.
City though could have handed the title to Liverpool with a defeat at Newcastle.

Newcastle had 24% possession-can't be many teams that have won games with less than that.Liverpool need to make them pay tomorrow.

The pressure is now on. Not on Liverpool, they have won the title now, but on Guardiola. If City don't win the Champions League then Pep will have a record at City which is no better than Mancini or Pellegrini. He might yet take City to the promised land this season but if he doesn't the Sheik might well have buyers remorse.

Turn on, Tune in, Drop out.

nah it's not over till they can't be caught. 7 points will be a decent lead but a few twists and turns yet.

I couldn't really care BTW although have a preference for Liverpool

A bit early to be getting carried away with the chicken counting, AAPS. I'm sure you'll remember Kevin Keegan's Newcastle had built up a 12 pt lead over Man U in January only to fall apart in the home stretch. Ironically, a 4-3 win by Liverpool at Anfield virtually handed the title to Man U.

As a neutral, I have enjoyed the football played by both Liverpool and City this season and objectively, it's now Liverpool's to lose. Last night's result at Newcastle will have handed them a tremendous psychological boost, but it should also serve as a warning that nothing can be taken for granted in football. Further evidence, if any was needed, was Man U's narrow squeak against little Burnley. I wonder what the odds were on an away win and how close did they come?

A title win for Liverpool would be good for English football, in the sense that they haven't managed that in almost 30 years, although I wouldn't expect any Mancs to find any comfort in that. 😊 How long did Man U's title drought last before Fergie managed it? 25 years was it City's was even longer and as for Spurs......

Certainly makes tonight's game more interesting. Leicestershireshireshire seem to be having a mixed season but are as good as anyone on their day.
Win or lose there's still a long long way to go for Liverpool and Man City with (***football cliché alert***) many many twists and turns to come I'm sure.
I did love Alan Shearers comments during the lead up to the Newcastle penalty... "pressure's for tyres" 😂

A win tonight gives Liverpool a bit breathing space, that’s about it. Pep job is safest in the league along with Klopp.
Champions league is so difficult to win, one slip up is all it takes with so many good teams.

Liverpool were very fortunate to beat Leicester last time. Defensively, they have a few out and a few who may not be 100%

I certainly wouldn't be backing Liverpool at odds of 1/4 on

Liverpool will have a wobble soon - 2 or 3 games where they pick up 1 or 2 points only - far from over.

In the space of 6 weeks they have to play

Bayern x 2
Man Utd
Everton
Spurs
Chelsea

With away trips to Southampton and Fulham thrown in and a home game vs Burnley

Plenty of chance for them to throw it away (hopefully!)

Liverpool have lost just 5 of their last 65 league games.The last time they lost a league game at Anfield was in April 2017(33 games ago). They've only dropped 9 points in total after 23 games this season, conceding only 13 goals and have just 15 games left.Their last 4 games are against Cardiff, Huddersfield, Newcastle and Wolves so if they can maintain a gap until then the title awaits.City play Arsenal,Chelsea and Everton away in the next week.It's feasible that City could win every game from now on in and still not catch them if Liverpool carry on doing what they have been.

A very similar case could have been for City just over a month ago and then they lost at home to Palace. Before you knew it, they lost another game and found themselves trailing behind Liverpool. I think the title race is far from over, but I doubt whether Liverpool will ever have a better chance,

Aye OK, Sergio. Why not just come out and say my previous post was unadulterated pith?

I've just had a look at Liverpool and City's upcoming fixtures and the Reds play first until the end of Feb. If they can win these gamesceach time, it will increase the pressure on their rivals even more. If they trip up, however....

What odds are the bookies offering on each for the title? I wouldn't bet my house on Liverpool just yet.

So Liverpool are 4 points clear with a game in hand and it's all over but Celtic are 3 points clear with a game in hand and it's a title race. That's quite a crucial point.

The only reason it's not dead and buried is a combination of Celtic not finding top gear and having half their first team out.

The only interesting angle is how many points Celtic will win the league by considering their inconsistent form and injury problems.

Rangers , Celtic and Kilmarnock are all in with a shout. History would obviously suggest Celtic will claim another title but at least it’s interesting.
Liverpool could go 7 points ahead tonight , then potentially 10 before City play again. Liverpool have only lost one game all season.

Edit: Actually Liverpool don’t play until Monday so that’s not accurate.

Has anybody seen Sergio? :-)

It would be good to hear his (revised) thoughts on the title races, both north and south of the border, after last night's games.

Liverpool now hold a 5 pt lead, while Celtic have 6. How crucial is that extra point, I'm wondering?

Not much I would've thought, keeps it a two game swing and imagine City have better goal difference?

It's an extra point gained so nothing to be sniffed at, but think Man City will be feeling pretty relieved after that.

Or Liverpool are feeling relieved that in a round where they drop points Man City failed to take advantage.
Meanwhile it's starting to look ominous for Sarri at Chelsea. He's recently made some odd remarks about Hazard and as Mourhino found out of you go up against the diminutive Belgian you will come off worse. Wouldn't be surprised if he ends up back at Napoli for next season.

Sarri's season has a lot of similarities with Guardiola's first at Man City. Both made excellent starts playing some really good football before falling away. Only difference being Man City aren't as trigger happy as Chelsea.......

I think if they keep him on for next season, with a full year of Chelsea getting used to his ideas and a few more of his own players, they should be in the title fight will Man City and Liverpool, possibly Man Utd if they get a decent manager.

I was actually alluding to a conversation further up the thread, Berry. Sergio suggested that the EPL race was over, whereas the Scottish one was still on. LPF pointed out that Liverpool had a 4 pt before last night while Celtic had 3. He then made a wry suggestion that Liverpool's ''extra'' point must be crucial and I was just following in the same vein.

I agree that City will feel they've escaped pretty lightly after what could have been a title relinquishing result on Tyneside. Liverpool, on the other hand, will be sick they didn't take full advantage of City's slip up, especially in front of their own fans.......

Game in hand in that case ;) but agree Liverpool are holding their bad spell together just by getting draws when not winning.
The last few games are the worst I've seen them play all season. Midfield seems to be a real problem.

Seriously though, the last week illustrates how bookies become rich at the punters expense. Liverpool are still in pole position but the odds on City will have shortened dramatically.
