Share

Goals from Sadio Mane, Georginio Wijnaldum and Mohamed Salah allowed Liverpool to bounce back from draws against Leicester and West Ham, as Klopp admitted they needed a response to banish the notion they were cracking under the pressure of a tense title battle with Manchester City.

The odds are stacked against the Cherries, with Liverpool on a 33-match unbeaten run at home, while the south coast club have lost their last seven matches on the road in the Premier League.

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp is probably exhausted of repeating that his players are not suffering nerves as they look for their first league title since 1990, and has pointed to a long injury list. If they are able to do this it will be a hard match.

Manchester United's in-form striker Paul Pogba said greater challenges lie ahead for the club after scoring twice in a 3-0 win away to Premier League strugglers Fulham on Saturday. "In the big games, we need the important players. this game belongs to the players and the important games belong to the special players", Guardiola added.

"It certainly wasn't pressure on my part (1996-97), and when I looked around the dressing room I don't think it was pressure".

'He's been brilliant. I saw one of the City boys say they are stronger than us. They live like this. You can win or draw for different reasons but you don't want to just come through a game somehow.

"That was what everything was about when you were a player".

"The big players need to appear in the big games, in the big moments, and he has done it".

Bournemouth, who were without main striker Callum Wilson, offered little in reply and will be concerned at once again losing heavily away from home against one of the Premier League's big six.

He completely dismissed suggestions the players were feeling the heat.

"I'd like to extend [City contract], I'm fine here, but I don't have any information about it", said Bernardo. We are not, but the analysis must be sensible, you have to talk about the right things with the boys and we did that.

With this fixture proving absolutely pivotal in City's season, defeat, or even failure to win, could seriously damage their chances of snatching the Premier League title from Liverpool.

"I made my debut in 1990 with everybody who had won it (the title)".

He put some gloss on his performance with a goal in the 34th-minute to make it 2-0, latching onto a Andy Robertson's ball after the Reds regained possession.

"I really don't get what people are talking about".

"For Emiliano, I feel really proud that the lads have done him justice, " Cardiff manager Neil Warnock said.
