Liverpool Fans Rage After 2 Refereeing Decisions Contribute To Title Blow


Pep Guardiola's men were handed a shock 2-1 defeat on Tyneside in the Premier League on Tuesday, as the Magpies climbed out of the relegation zone.

The Spaniard said: "I know the challenge is big, being in all competitions is what it is". As far as future goalkeeper cover goes, the club's parent company City Football Group have signed the American Zack Steffen from Major League Soccer's Columbus Crew, to arrive in July.

"It's just sometimes, we don't play at the level we want to play and that can happen, that's something I understand completely".

"It's hard to say - we tried everything to push to score a second goal but it didn't work out, they got better in the first half after 30 minutes and I think that's why they created the chance with Maddison, but also because we lost a lot of balls trying to play football", the No.5 said. Everyone is disappointed, but I think five points is also good.

"A few years ago that would have been a brilliant position for Leicester but not after winning the league and playing Champions League, investing a lot of money in the team".

City host Arsenal on Sunday before Liverpool travel to West Ham United on Monday night.

However, City lost their rhythm after that and were punished when Salomon Rondon equalized for Newcastle in the 66th minute from an Isaac Hayden header. Guardiola repeated his stance on Tuesday night that his club will not add to their first team squad in this window. The game was not good.

"I think obviously we had a gameplan, and the gameplan was not to concede a goal in the first minute", said manager Benitez.

Theoretically, Spurs are still in the title race but it will be next to impossible for the London side to overcome a nine-point gap. There are still 14 games left, so we are going to fight until the end. "We did not defend the second ball well, we have to improve".

Liverpool took in a welcome break over the weekend as many of their Premier League rivals were in FA Cup action.

The 25-year-old was reportedly the subject of interest from Manchester United during the last transfer window after impressing for England at the World Cup in Russian Federation.
