I've been working on the assumption all season that they won't. And I think it's a fairly safe assumption to make as they won't win every remaining game.

I haven't at all.

My assumption since the beginning of the season has been that 100 points would be enough. Look at my post history and do the maths if you really want.

If only that cunt had sent Kompany off there would be no race now.

Ah well, we’ll still win it. Gorra feeling it’ll be tied up at Newcastle, preferably while relegating them and their vile fans. Soz Rafa.

Nope. The perch would need some maintenance and general upkeep. It would be nice to make it feel more like home again.

No

I get it, but the league title has been a very heavy weight around this club, and I dont know how to phrase it properly but it ties in with Hillsborough. We've had some justice on that front and hopefully more to come, starting in next week or two.. to add the league to it would be amazing, and make it all more enjoyable that we don't have to worry about going so long without a title.

Expanded anfield, decent owners, brillant manager and squad and in pot 1 for the CL. I dont see how you walk away from that.

Ridiculous numbers. We are exceptional at the back. Gets taken for granted a bit, if we only win 1 or 2-0 while limiting the oppo to absolutely nothing it’s talked about as “winning when not playing well”. Well we’ll see who else stops Brighton having a shot on target at home this season. I’m guessing that’ll be no one.

Even City barely created anything v us over 2 games, the two goals were just brilliant finishes which go over and wide without fuss v the other 18 teams.

No team has stopped them scoring at home in 10/11 months and we stopped them having a shot.

I was just trying to figure it out and I reckon outside of the top 6, we've only let in 3 goals this season.

Cardiff, Burnley and Leicester.

They’re only going to get better, it’s possible we’ll finish on a single-digit goals conceded figure in a coming season.

I loved the fact we only won 1-0 yesterday. It was great earlier in the season when City were stuffing teams and it looked like we were just scraping by, winning by one goal most weeks, but they couldn't shake us. It was nice to start stuffing teams again, but City must have been feeling that the tide is turning after recent weeks, but their 7-0's and 9-0's won't matter a fuck as long as we keep doing what we are doing. Must be so frustrating for them.

Liverpool flaws mean this title race is likely to go down to the wire

The first potentially significant wobble has been corrected, and the season has already reached a point at which results take a very clear precedence over performances, but there was still plenty here to encourage Manchester City.

Yes, the champions are again staring up at an seven-point deficit to Liverpool ahead of their match on Monday night against Wolverhampton Wanderers and, yes, it can be convincingly argued that this was just the sort of forgettable but very timely 1-0 win on which league championships are historically won.

But the jarring impact of City’s 2-1 win 10 days’ ago was still very evident and the swagger that Liverpool displayed in scoring 14 goals in four December matches against Manchester United, Arsenal, Wolves and Newcastle has been checked.

So flamboyant and so confident in winning eight straight games before their defeat at the Etihad Stadium, this was Liverpool back to their early-season form. Solid. Efficient. Job done.

They were ultimately good where it most mattered at either end of the pitch, but lacking the authority and rhythm you might reasonably expect of future champions.

Virgil van Dijk was a typically towering defensive presence and, in both winning the penalty and so emphatically converting the chance, Mohamed Salah continued his outstanding form.

He ultimately made the difference in what Brighton manager Chris Hughton rightly analysed as a 90 minute match that hinged on a few select moments.

Elsewhere, and even allowing for some tension after also losing against Wolves in the FA Cup on Monday, this was a distinctly workmanlike Liverpool.

Possession was dominated but clear chances were rare and a nagging question persists even about this hugely impressive title challenge. It is whether Liverpool have sufficient midfield presence and fluency to maintain their advantage on City.

They were well beaten in that area of the pitch by Pep Guardiola's earlier this month and, while Xherdan Shaqiri, Georginio Wijnaldum and Jordan Henderson are very good Premier League players, would they get in any City midfield containing Fernandinho, David Silva, Kevin de Bruyne or Bernardo Silva?

It is a depth in quality which allows City to effortlessly dominate matches even while well below their best. Liverpool do not have that same luxury and there was an argument here that they were fortunate that Brighton did so prioritise their own defensive structure.

Liverpool were hesitant early in the game and, while they certainly did begin the second-half with more urgency, Brighton might just have been rewarded for taking greater risks.

That they ended the match without so much as a shot on goal was a consequence of their caution just as much as Liverpool’s ongoing defensive excellence.

The wider question now that the transfer window is open is whether Liverpool might seek to improve their midfield. It appears unlikely, even if Liverpool’s meticulously executed transfer planning over recent years has still contained the occasional surprise.

An added recent factor has been the need to start Fabinho in defence even if the biggest weakness was not so much the midfield shield offered by Henderson and Wijnaldum but the absence of any consistently coherent link to their attack.

Shaqiri was disappointingly quiet, and came off after Salah's goal in preference for James Milner, while Naby Keita was brought on after 90 minutes when the sole priority was to see the game out.

It was entirely sensible in the specific circumstances - and upcoming fixtures against Crystal Palace, Leicester City, West Ham United and Bournemouth represent a better opportunity to restore attacking confidence - but how Klopp would surely love the option just now of a fully fit Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain.

To be honest I am quite happy if people keep underestimating us, talking us down and expecting City to win it, it keeps the pressure off a little and transfers it on to City. As long as the players keep doing their stuff we can win this, not being influenced by external factors will be key particularly in April/May
