Benitez holds 'positive talks' on Newcastle future

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

For example if City win one and lose one of their final two games and Liverpool take four points, both sides would end on 95.

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. But we are going to make it tough, we are going to go for the win, and we want to keep going until the very last game of the season.

"I don't think so - the game was incredibly good, from both sides", City's manager said.

"That is not going to happen", Guardiola told journalists.

But even though Foxes boss Brendan Rodgers managed Liverpool between 2012-15 and nearly took them to the title in 2014, he says he is not anxious about trying to do his former side a favour. "I think everybody understands that we are professionals and we will do our best, that's it".

Liverpool must win their remaining two Premier League fixtures and hope Manchester City drop points in their final two games if they have any hope of lifting the title, but Benitez, who fell short of winning the league in 2008-09, said he will not be helping his former team by offering up three crucial points.

"He scored two goals and I leave very disappointed".

The Reds have failed to beat us in any of their last four Premier League ventures to Tyneside, and have conceded six goals in that time, while only scoring three. The Leicester players will not come here for their holiday. That shouldn't be a problem though as they've managed eleven goals in their last five matches with Jamie Vardy in fine form. "They are going to try and get a win for sure". They're not used to having the ball but Brendan Rodgers has got them looking like a real good team.
