Liverpool were given a huge early boost in the title race after Manchester City were beaten 3-2 by newly-promoted Norwich on Saturday. 

Jurgen Klopp’s side now sit five points clear after five games, the largest margin at the top of the pile at this point in the season in Premier League history. 

After City’s defeat, Pep Guardiola caused a stir by sarcastically congratulating Liverpool on their title success this season.

READ LIVERPOOL VERDICT 

Of course, it is only natural to be upset in Manchester City’s position after losing to a newly-promoted side, but it was strange for Guardiola to mention Liverpool. 

Liverpool have had a sensational start to the season, with five straight wins, and Guardiola is clearly concerned by their chances of winning the title – even at this early stage of the campaign. 

Klopp will now be looking to keep his cool and make sure his players do not get ahead of themselves. After all, we have to remember that Liverpool were clear at Christmas last year and failed to win the title, so there is a long way to go yet. 

Is Guardiola obsessed with Liverpool?

Yes

No
