Man City vs Chelsea: Guardiola set for revenge mission

After back to back league draws, Liverpool needed to respond after title challengers Manchester City went top after beating Everton.

Liverpool and Bournemouth played earlier in the season.

Meanwhile, United's revival under caretaker manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer continued with an equally comfortable 3-0 win away to Fulham.

Liverpool FC were unable to beat Leicester City and West Ham United despite taking the lead in both games through goals from Sadio Mane.

Gini Wijnaldum doubled the advantage ten minutes later as he netted a perfectly executed lob over Cherries goalkeeper Artur Boruc.

Chelsea are now occupying the fourth position in the standings but they need to avoid a defeat to ensure their prospects of maintain the final Champions League spot.

But United, 11 points adrift of the top four when Jose Mourinho was sacked in December, are back in the hunt now.

Klopp said he had not needed to listen to any of the outside criticism which came Liverpool's way over the last few days to know a reaction was needed, but a reaction was what he got.

The Reds are battling for their first title in 29 years and their maiden Premier League crown.

Manchester City still have three of the top six to play in their final 12 games as they look to defend their Premier League title.

Cardiff wore special shirts embroidered with a yellow daffodil, the national emblem of Wales and the team colour of French side Nantes, Sala's former club, with a minute's silence observed prior to kick-off.

Jack Stephens cancelled out Sol Bamba's effort in stoppage time but Cardiff edged back in front just seconds later through Kenneth Zohore.

But there was still time for Kenneth Zohore to score a 93rd-minute victor at St Mary's Stadium.

"Normally, it's very hard to play so soon when you have been injured as Marco has".

"The amusing thing about that is I didn't read it, I didn't watch it and I still know it", he told a news conference on Friday.

Burnley were in the relegation zone after Cardiff's win.

In the day's late game, Burnley continued their unbeaten league run in 2019 with a 3-1 victory at Brighton & Hove Albion, moving them three points clear of the bottom three and ensuring Southampton will finish the weekend in the relegation zone. There were always reasons for it, for us.

He has always delivered the same message of indifference to what was being said outside the club and going behind City on goal difference has not affected that.

Klopp's side have been accused of allowing nerves to affect their performances over the past couple of weeks following consecutive 1-1 draws.

Third-placed Tottenham welcome Leicester to Wembley today, with in-form Wolves at home to Newcastle tomorrow.
