Liverpool to avoid punishment for selectively clearing snowy pitch vs. Leicester

Marco Silva's Everton side could be in for another tough test against Huddersfield

Another twist in the title race! At the end of the season we will see. The summer window was unusual for City, as they spent just £61 million in total on just the one player, Riyad Mahrez, as clubs like Fulham and West Ham spent more than that. Not at all. Watching football in conditions cold enough to make an Eskimo's eyeballs freeze or a Geordie young woman wear a light jacket isn't particularly fun, especially when the Reds don't play well, but it was the general Anfield angst that made it a thoroughly unenjoyable evening.

"Even with City losing at Newcastle they are not out of it". Of course I am. "You have to take it how it is".

Such stress levels are perfectly understandable.

"They will not play well every game because there will be nerves and tension the closer you get. The motivation is to win games ... won't be about one tweet or another".

"In the end it was a bit better, but it was a hard pitch to play on". I do think they're in for a test, however, and backing an away win including a goal for the home side at almost 3/1 looks worth a go. Referee Martin Atkinson did not see it that way, however, and failed to award the spot kick.

Harry Maguire tugged Sadio Mane so hard that he went down like Gemma Collins on ice instead of racing clean through to potentially make it 2-0, but Slabhead only saw yellow and rubbed rocksalt into the slush by equalising shortly afterwards.

Klopp acknowledged a disappointing evening, but felt his side should have been awarded a penalty when Naby Keita was fouled in the penalty area by Ricardo Pereira. So much for Penaltypool.

Toronto McArthur Enters Guilty Plea News Centre News
It sparked a massive investigation in Toronto, the country's largest city, at dozens of properties where McArthur had worked. Bruce McArthur has pleaded guilty to eight counts of first-degree murder.

"It's only January and teams, including Liverpool and Manchester City, will drop more points".

Anfield has been Liverpool's biggest asset this season.

Perhaps Crystal Palace scoring three at Anfield a few weeks back has undermined confidence in our home form a little, or maybe it's just early title fever.

While it's a amusing tweet and we're well in favour of footballers having fun on social media, it's just a bit daft from Walker isn't it?

"It's not all doom and gloom", the former England winger, who won two league titles with Liverpool, told talkSPORT. "They are a good team, they play good football, great players, and for us we were just not lucky enough I think".

It was Chelsea, Crystal Palace, and Leicester City who inflected festive misery in stunning defeats on the defending champions, to start eradicating memories of their record-breaking 2017/18 season which saw them maraud through the Premier League and instil fear in nearly every opponent.

The home side got off to the flawless start when Sadio Mane put them ahead after only two minutes, but they failed to capitalise. You can order copies of both here.
