The weekend saw the top two sides maintain their momentum in the Premier League, with Liverpool bouncing back from two successive league draws to win 3-0 at home to Bournemouth while Manchester City put on a masterclass to humiliate Chelsea 6-0 on Sunday. Those results left the pacesetters level on 65 points at the top with Man City ahead on goal difference and a former Reds star has given manager Jurgen Klopp advise on the only way the Merseyside club can pip Pep Guardiola’s rampant men to the league title.

According to Graeme Souness, he believes Klopp’s side will have to be faultless if they are to stand any chance of pipping Pep Guardiola’s team to the crown. He said Liverpool are going to have to “win every single game” if they are to fend off the challenge of Manchester City and land the Premier League title. The Reds have forced their way into contention for a first top-flight crown in 29 years. Klopp’s side have suffered just one defeat through 26 games, claiming 20 victories along the way.

However, the Reds are sat second in the table at present, with defending champions City back at the summit. Guardiola’s side are only leading on goal difference and have played a game more than the chasing pack, but they have been in stunning form of late – with Chelsea crushed 6-0 in their most recent outing inspired by Sergio Aguero hat-trick. With the Blues moving ominously through the gears, Souness believes Liverpool will have to be faultless from this point in order to end their long wait for domestic supremacy.

The former Reds star told Sky : “City have put a marker down. Liverpool are going to have to win every single game to win this league. City have the bit between their teeth right now. The way Liverpool beat Bournemouth [on Saturday] doesn’t confirm they’re back at their best. But that result for City [against Chelsea] has confirmed after their hiccup, they’re saying: ‘We’re bang at it, this is how we’re going to finish the season’. If that is their form between now and the end of the season, Liverpool have to win every game. That’s what they’re looking at.”

Souness added: “City today have won 6-0 and you’re thinking, with it being nearly 50/50 in possession, were they that good? Yeah, I think they were in the areas that mattered. When they came to defend, they defended properly as a unit and individually. Up front, they were getting goals, albeit through some from Chelsea. City have had their rollicking off their manager and they’ve had their points dropped. They’re going to take some stopping if that’s their mood between now and the end.”

Do you agree with Souness’ opinion? Can Liverpool remain flawless for the rest of the season?

A Luke Shaw own goal in the 12th minute was all Ernesto Valverde’s men needed to claim victory at Old Trafford.

He said: ‘We played a good team. We know you have to defend a lot without the ball and you might be tired when you get the chance yourself.

‘We go there with one thing in my mind, we have to score.’

There is no doubt United will have to score to go through to the semi-final, but the game at the Nou Camp won’t be easy by any means.

It is expected that Barcelona will dominate the second leg, leaving United with the option of playing on the counter.

Aside playing on the counter, Solskjaer will have to rely on set-pieces in order to get a goal. This is where a player like Lukaku will be useful, given his physical presence.

It remains to be seen if Lionel Messi will be able to give a better performance after a not too inspiring first leg where he was bullied by Chris Smalling.

The United defender had prior to the game said that he was ready for the challenge against Messi, urging the little Argentine to ‘bring it on’.

‘He’s a great athlete, wins his challenges and quick on his feet. He started settling us to be fair [after United went behind].’

Image result for scott mctominay manchester united boss names the player that is always improving his game MANCHESTER UNITED BOSS NAMES THE PLAYER THAT IS ALWAYS IMPROVING HIS GAME GettyImages 1136183586 min

McTominay has made 17 appearances for United this season, scoring once.

He is a product of United’s academy and made his Premier League debut when he came on as a substitute against Arsenal on the 7th of May, 2017.

Solskjaer will be hoping the youngster continues to improve and gives a good account of himself if he is given another chance against Barcelona in the second leg.

With the future of Ander Herrera in doubt, United may have just found an ideal replacement for the Spaniard.

If he is consistent, his youthfulness and ability to put in enormous strength will make him the darling of United supporters.

At this stage, it is important for the youngster to avoid the distractions that come from being the centre of attention and focus on giving his best in training.

He should learn from previous United youngsters who have broken into the first team and failed to maintain and improve on the work that got them to the top.
