Kompany fears Liverpool

In the latest round of the EPL Manchester City outplayed Watford thanks to Sterling’s hat-trick. However, Liverpool also defeated Burnley 4:2 and the Citizens couldn’t break away.

The main battle for the championship is developing in the EPL eight rounds before the end of the season. Tottenham have already dropped out of the race, having lost to Southampton 2:1. Liverpool’s gap from City and the Spurs is 12 and 13 points respectively, therefore the EPL cup will be played out between the Manchester and Merseyside teams.

In the beginning of the season Guardiola said that every time he gets distracted from fuss, he sees Klopp with his team. Then City were in the first place and constantly looked back. Unable to withstand the pressure of the Merseysiders, the Citizens gave them the first position and from December to February were in the role of runners-up. However, the picture has changed again and it is easier to catch up with Liverpool, watching Manchester City in full view.

In this regard, players from Etihad fear Klopp’s team. Together with Guardiola, they set themselves maximum goals, realizing that Liverpool can win in the eight remaining matches. The voice of the Citizens was made by Vincent Kompany in an interview with Goal,

“In this segment of the season we could not ask for something more. We are all convinced that Liverpool will win all the remaining matches until the end of the season.

We know what a difficult task we face - there are still serious rivals ahead, and matches with all the teams are not easy. We are calm and do not soar in the clouds.”

Liverpool, when being eliminated from the Champions League will ensure the best conditions for winning the championship, but so far this has not happened. At the same time, in addition to the championship, City need to be sprayed on two cups. In the last matches, Guardiola’s team began to play extremely pragmatically, scoring only 1-2 goals per game. At the same time, the Citizens do not allow opponents to create chances near their goal. Liverpool are rushing ahead, realizing that City may stumble in one of the remaining matches. Therefore, the words of Company are logical, since any loss of points by City can be a loss of championship. Given Liverpool's luck this season and only one defeat - the Reds have not yet lost their chances for the championship, and the struggle has just begun.
