Liverpool won't receive title favours from Newcastle - Benitez

May JohnsonMay 04, 2019

Kevin De Bruyne remains out for Manchester City as they continue their title challenge with a home game against Leicester on Monday Night Football.

One fanciful scenario that would see the two sides end the season dead level is City losing 2-0 to Leicester then thrashing Brighton 4-0 while Liverpool batter Newcastle 7-1 before drawing 3-3 with Wolves.

"The players know it's an incredible task for us, it's already a final for us, hopefully on Monday the people can help us and we can do what we have to do and win the game".

"I don't think it will affect them", Guardiola said on what the Merseyside outfit's mindset will be after their defeat to the Catalan giants.

"That's not going to happen", Guardiola said.

Both Leicester and Newcastle are managed by former Liverpool bosses in Brendan Rodgers and Rafael Benitez respectively but Guardiola insists that is irrelevant this weekend.

Lukaku: Manchester United future unclear Solskjaer will show worth next season

Liverpool were beaten 3-0 in Spain in Wednesday's Champions League semi-final first leg but Guardiola dismissed the prospect of them faltering on Tyneside after seeing their performance at the Camp Nou.

Liverpool are aiming to be crowned league champions for the first time in 29 years and remain locked in a thrilling title battle with Manchester City. The two teams have incredibly similar points totals, goal difference and number of goals scored, meaning there is a real possibility that the two teams could finish the season level on all fronts.

Man City have won eight of their last 10 Premier League home games in May (D2), scoring 29 goals and conceding just five in that run.

It's unlikely, but football has taught us to never say never.

Since his Premier League debut in 2014-15, Jamie Vardy has scored more goals against "big six" opponents than any other player in the competition (31). I can not imagine being at former clubs and not wanting to win. They wiped the floor with Arsenal last week.
