"With Pep Guardiola, we are witnessing an awesome title race, the two teams play the right way, the managers perform the right way, and I have to say, from our point of view, it is brilliant to watch, even though it is painful for me".

Meanwhile for Man City, Kevin De Bruyne and Leroy Sane could inject some freshness back into the squad after sitting out the past couple of games.

Jurgen Klopp's Liverpool now lead the Premier League by two points from title rivals City, though the Merseyside club have played a game more than Pep Guardiola's side. We did it quite well.

"We thought the game would be more low-tempo and there would be more passes".

'It is hard because at the moment City and Liverpool are better than Chelsea but we are Chelsea and the last 10 years we won a lot of trophies. We didn't want to concede a counter-attack, where they are stronger than us.

Assange to Get No 'Special Treatment' From Canberra - Australian PM
The British judicial authorities will assess the extradition request from the US starting with a video session on the same day. Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison has ruled out any "special treatment" for Julian Assange after his arrest in London.


When asked about his tactics at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, he said: "It doesn't count if the decision was good or not after the game; nothing changes". I like when they express what they believe.

"For 20 months, we've been winning every three days; an incredible amount of games". Unfortunately we could not score a goal, but we have a second leg at home.

Who will come out on top in the battle of the managers Roy Hodgson or Josep Guardiola?

"Selhurst Park is always hard, not just for the stadium itself but for the quality of the players they have". Unsurprisingly, Crystal Palace has struggled against the Big Six sides this season, with the exception a 3-2 win....at Manchester City.

Sky Sports Main Event (Sky channel 401, Sky HD 855, Virgin channel 511) and Sky Sports Premier League (Sky channel 402, Sky HD 856, Virgin channel 512) will air coverage of the game from 2pm.
