    Social media has been flooded with talk about a potential first Premier League title in 29 years for Jurgen Klopp’s Reds.

    But not everyone is hoping it’s their year…

    With that in mind, we wanted to know who do you hope will be lifting the Premier League trophy in four month’s time and why?

    Man City and Liverpool fans – we know your views – we want to hear from neutrals and fans from other clubs.

  2. ‘Result won’t knock Liverpool’s confidence or belief that they can win the league’

    Man City 2-1 Liverpool

    Mark Lawrenson

    MOTD pundit and former Liverpool defender

    Liverpool’s defeat by Manchester City was a setback for Jurgen Klopp’s side but it is not a result that will knock their confidence or affect the Reds’ belief that they can win this title race.

    Their loss had nothing to do with nerves, or any lack of effort or ability, and it is not as if City won by dismantling Liverpool or exposing any flaws in their team.

    The Reds were just edged out of a very tight game against one of the best teams in Europe, and it could easily have ended up with a different outcome.

    Of course it opens things up at the top of the Premier League table, but Liverpool are still four points clear with 21 games gone, which is better than they probably expected at the beginning of December, let alone at the start of the season.

    Check out more of Lawro’s thoughts here.

  3. Still to come…

    In case it had slipped your mind, the FA Cup returns tonight.

    A bumper 32 fixtures across three days means one thing: news conferences.

  4. How the night unfolded…

    Man City 2-1 Liverpool

    And just like that, the Premier League title race is back on.

    But, we are talking about a team who amassed 100 points last season, so was it really ever off?

    Man City ended Liverpool’s 20-game unbeaten run (Arsenal fans, breathe a sigh of relief), with the champions just four points behind the challengers in second place.

    It was undoubtedly one of the highlight fixtures of the season – here’s how it all unfolded.

  5. Good morning!

    Well, well, well…

    Feeling smug, City fans? Perhaps you’re a deflated Red?

    Maybe you’re a neutral and you’re just glad that the Liverpool fans in your life have been silenced just a little bit…

    I’ll be bringing you the best reaction to last night’s game-of-the-season contender, plus there’s a whole host of FA Cup news conferences to get stuck into.

    What more could you want on a Friday?

    Welcome!
