Liverpool retain two-point lead at the top of the Premier League

Liverpool reclaim top spot; Everton humiliate United

City are now two points behind Liverpool on the points table, but they have played one game lesser than the Reds.

Liverpool kept their nerve to retain their two-point lead at the top of the Premier League as they won a tough game away to Cardiff City 2-0.

"We will be completely focused on Huddersfield, but up to then we have to rest and recover and prepare". But Pep Guardiola's champions have a game in hand over Liverpool so defending the title is still in their control unless they fail to beat United.

"We have to see on the others".

Four Liverpool players were named in the Professional Footballers' Association's (PFA) Team of the Year announced earlier on Thursday and Klopp said more of his players deserved to be named in the team dominated by City.

Tottenham's last-gasp 1-0 win over Brighton on Tuesday left them in the driving seat and they will host West Ham United on Saturday three points above Chelsea, who travel to sixth-placed Manchester United knowing victory would nearly certainly knock Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side out of the equation. "But the reality is that there is a lot of work ahead of us, it's not just seven games".

After Mueller report, it's time to slow down
Here are a few notable examples where the Mueller report contradicts public statements made by Trump and some of his associates. Crucially, the heavily-redacted report could not prove that Trump's election campaign colluded with Russian meddling efforts.

Second-half goals from Georginio Wijnaldum, only the Dutch midfielder's third of the season, and a late James Milner penalty secured Liverpool victory over relegation-threatened Cardiff and clinched a ninth successive win in all competitions. Everybody saw it. Dry pitches are risky for the players injury-wise and you know why people leave the pitch dry. We've got to keep believing, keep our confidence going and win as many games as we can.

Speaking after the game, Cardiff manager Neil Warnock said that he thought it was a "soft penalty". "Overall, we have got to be very happy with the performance and obviously the three points".

"But we've had plenty of big opportunities before today, plenty of key moments that give us the opportunity to achieve our first target, to play in the Champions League next year".

"People are saying all the fans are getting excited, but why not?"

The victory over Cardiff has taken Klopp's men to 88 points - a tally they have never achieved since the Premier League's inception in 1992.
