Jurgen Klopp on what he wants from Liverpool FC in 2019

Klopp's Liverpool sit on top of the Premier League table at Christmas but will play two more league games before the year is out. But I still see Liverpool and Manchester City ahead of the others.

Klopp expressed his faith in a squad that has delivered top spot in the league so far as well as progression to the Champions League knockout phase.

"Obviously we have played a very good season so far and it gives us a much better basis for the second part of the season than we had previous year".

"We as a team didn't do enough in the match to block them, in many moments we could have done some things differently".

'If you think after 300 metres "I have him" then you are silly and you will never win.

Silva will be looking for his side to bounce back at Turf Moor against a struggling Burnley side on Boxing Day.

Benitez, who has also previously coached Real Madrid, Chelsea, Inter Milan, Valencia and Napoli, said Newcastle are finding it tough to keep up with their rivals because of a lack of investment in players.

Midfielder Naby Keita was removed from Liverpool's win against Wolverhampton Wanderers on Friday.

"I don't know him that well but he looks like someone who works incredibly hard, is very committed to his club, and does all the right things".

"Rafa is too experienced to carry that for a full season, those emotions".

First, the good news for Liverpool: In eight of the past 10 seasons, the leaders on Christmas Day have gone on to win the Premier League. It was always hard to play against them, at Newcastle and here at home as well. That is what we need - to stay angry, greedy and in the job. It is really important that we can react. I didn't expect that City would lose against Crystal Palace, of course not, but it was clear that, like it can happen to us, it could happen to them. We have to think about 26 December against Newcastle.

There is little even the Brazilian could have done to stop Andros Townsend's stunning volley that put Palace into a 2-1 lead against the run of play, but in and out of possession, Fernandinho makes City tick.

But Pochettino's side are on a high after putting six goals past Everton on Sunday and the Argentinian said they can only take care of what's in front of them. That's not so cool.

"I am confident in our team that we can beat anyone on our day".
