One of the players who should soon play in the highest level must be Mason Greenwood.

"When you are on top you can drop points but when you are behind you cannot because it will be more hard", he said.

"In the last two months the mentality makes the difference", he said.

"We didn't get many chances as we would have liked and we're disappointed not to win the game".

"Luke Shaw has been the best player of the season for me", Lukaku told reporters after the 0-0 draw, per Man United's official website.

"I don't know how long they (Fernandinho and Laporte) will be out. maybe in the Swansea game or after the worldwide break".

Fans often look towards the May fixtures to see who has the upper hand in the title race and Liverpool will be delighted with their final three games this term.

"Obviously Bobby was pretty much always involved and it's possible that's not the case this time, but we obviously have options and we will use from the start one of them and maybe during the game a second one". I guess Liverpool are happy when we don't win and the same with Tottenham and the others - we can not deny that. It's in Liverpool's hands, but it's in our hands too. "We take that. It is a point gained because we have one more than before but it doesn't feel like that", he said.

However, injuries to Aymeric Laporte and Fernandinho blighted victory on Sunday with John Stones and Gabriel Jesus also unlikely to return before an global break in mid-March.

Guardiola also confirmed that John Stones and Gabriel Jesus, who missed the final, are not ready to return against West Ham, but long-term injury absentee Benjamin Mendy could make his first Premier League appearance since November. "I don't know the list that's supposed to be injured". Now they've got a 23-year-old with plenty of games behind him, worldwide matches behind him, Champions League games behind him. "We'll wait and see and hopefully, if he is out, he won't be out for long and we can have him back because he's a big part of this squad".

"Fernandinho can not play against Schalke because he's suspended so we are going to take a risk and see after the global break".
