Liverpool vs Man City was the game of the season. European Champions vs League Champions. The Man City team are the most expensive in the league. The value of those even sitting on the bench cost more than some whole teams. €1.014bn compared with Liverpool €639m.

There was a game but Man City couldn't break down the Liverpool defense. Pep was in nuclear meltdown. Controversial penalty denied against Liverpool. Three cracker goals from Liverpool put an end to it and we sit 8 points clear at the top.

Liverpool have not lost at Anfield since April 2017, 48 games.

34 points from a possible 36 points is rarely achieved.

Still a distance to go before the end of the season.

Zichi, well said. There is no stopping the Reds this season. YNWA.

There is no stopping the Reds this season.

Don't put the cart before the horse just yet.In January, Liverpool had a seven point lead and lost the title race.A good win,but it's far from in the bag.

Like Klopp always says the only game is the next one. International break for two weeks which will Salah more time to heal his ankle then next up is Crystal Palace on the 23rd.

Also Liverpool will have to deal with a fixture overload in a very short time which will need two different teams. League Cup, Club World Cup, Champions League and Premier League.

Something will give. We need the league, the Club World Cup and the champions League.

Wants and needs.'Pool won the CL in May. But they NEED to win the PL to be all the way back as a club.

The European Champions League generates the most income. But yes we need to win the league. They never left as a club BTW. Astonishing history and culture.

I feel most Liverpool fans don't care about the monies of CL, as much as finally winning a PL title.Well, that's what my cuz tells me everytime I go back to the UK.And I never said they left did I? You ain't telling me anything I don't know.History or otherwise.Liverpool is a great club,in need of a PL title.

I was born not too far from Anfield and lived nearby. My support has a fan started in 1955, 64 years ago. We were in the 2nd division then.

I know all the glory days and I agree we want to win the premier league. Will this be the year I'm not going to say. We have waited far too long.

The European Championship attracts the top players and the money to buy them. I think last season was something like 500 million euro.

Klopp has also stated the importance to try and win Club World Cup.

But yes, the fans would give up everything to have the league championship again.

Tis true having CL money enables you to attract top line players,which Man U is finding out now the hard way.Between you and me,I support Leeds and we're having our own drought!! But I enjoy telling my cousin we last won the title before them! So I'll miss that if Liverpool get the job done.

I remember many great games between Liverpool and Leeds, tough dirty hard. I always thought they were the hardest to play against.

Games won:58 Games drawn:31 Games lost:28

You might get Milner back at the end of the season. Such a great guy and player.

I believe that unless the unthinkable happens, with Klopp's current approach to the games and to his players, as well as the remarkable progresses of Leicester City and Chelsea, it is likely that Liverpool will steadily consolidate its lead till the end of the season.

Those were some serious battles back in the day.Hope to resume them soon!! I'd like to have Milner now or actually an out and out goalscorer a la Mane!!

There is no club football during an international break but will resume on the Nov 23 I think.

You can watch the game by finding a site with a subscription. There are other sites too.
