Title race still in Liverpool's hands, says Kompany

Title race still in Liverpool's hands, says Kompany

The half also saw Vincent Kompany somewhat lucky to stay on the pitch after the Belgian picked up only a yellow card for a unsafe challenge on Mohamed Salah.

Silva produced a tireless display to help reigning champions City inflict a first league defeat of the season on Liverpool in a 2-1 triumph on Thursday.

"If we would have won the title five times in the last 10 years then we would say "we go 100 percent". So, naturally, the biggest early moment of their massive clash in Manchester on Thursday was very almost the most calamitous moment of the Premier League season.

"I have never seen this stadium have an atmosphere like this". I didn't try to injure him, that's for sure.

"I like him he is such a fantastic player, loved him when he was at Hamburg but a player makes a decision, goes to the ground". I got the ball, a little bit of the man but it wasn't naughty. If Mo can go through, come on, what happens then?

"It was a final for us, because losing today it was nearly over", said Guardiola.

In real time, the ball looked to be over the line.

The game means Liverpool are now just four points clear of City at the top of the table with 17 games remaining. Without it, Liverpool could now be heading over the horizon toward their first championship since 1990, but they have now been dragged back into a title race by Pep Guardiola's men. Yet City, with its back to the wall and after some rough results as of late, pulled out a dashing performance with critical saves, well-timed passes and a lovely showing in the middle from Fernandinho.

"The game was a real game for both sides, two incredible teams", Guardiola said.

Raiders Hiring Mike Mayock as General Manager
Davis said the Raiders had "five or six intensive interviews" for the position but would not name names, for competitive reasons. Mayock has been analyzing draft picks with the NFL Network for the past several seasons.

"It was not our or City's best game because we both made it hard for the other team", he continued.

Their loss had nothing to do with nerves, or any lack of effort or ability, and it is not as if City won by dismantling Liverpool or exposing any flaws in their team.

Replays showed just how close the ball was to going over the line, with technology deeming it to be 1.3cm away from a goal. While some people will feel Liverpool's luck has run out, the fact is, they played the second best team in the league.

"We need Sergio in this kind of game".

In a frenetic first-half, the Reds were denied an opener by just millimetres, after a John Stone clearance following a Sadio Mane which had hit the post ricocheted back of Ederson and towards the City goal.

Stones nearly made a mess of the clearance, initially striking the ball against goalkeeper Ederson before racing back to the goal line to hack the ball to safety.

"I don't know exactly, but I heard it was pretty close with our goal".

The petition is captioned with "It's not fair, we want justice". "Then we could have scored two; of course, City had counter-attacks, especially when we lost the ball, it was really unsafe".

"But tomorrow morning, we wake up and have the opportunity to prepare for the next game".
