Liverpool’s Jurgen Klopp and Manchester City’s Pep Guardiola both believe their sides must win all their remaining games to win the English Premier League football title after the teams matched each other again with victories on Sunday.
City beat Crystal Palace 3-1 to retake top spot before the Reds saw off Chelsea 2-0 to leapfrog their rivals.
“If we just drop one or two points we won’t be champions,” said Guardiola.
“We expect them to win all their games.” Reds boss Klopp added.
“We just need to get as many points as possible and if we’re champions then great, but if not, it is still a really good football team.”
City have a game in hand over Liverpool and if they win their remaining five fixtures, they will retain their title. However, they have arguably a tougher run-in with matches against Tottenham and Manchester United to come.
