Liverpool shuts down midfielder Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain for 2019


I am so proud of many things.

The Reds head into the game 10 points clear at the top of the Premier League table and having won all but one of their 17 games in the top flight this term.

"However, looking at the way Liverpool are playing and the determination they show in every game whether it's Manchester United, City or one of the so called lesser teams, they play with the same desire in every game".

Former Leicester playmaker Riyad Mahrez equalised soon afterwards with a clinical finish and Ilkay Gundogan's penalty, after Raheem Sterling had been fouled by Ricardo Pereira, sent City into halftime with a lead.

"We have almost as many points as Real Madrid and Barcelona", the Spaniard added.

Liverpool will be without Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain for the Boxing Day clash with Leicester City but Jürgen Klopp expects his fit players to be fully recovered from their FIFA Club World Cup exploits.

When the Space Shuttle Atlantis lifted off in 2011, it was the last time astronauts left earth on a US built spacecraft. Boeing retained spacecraft control, and was left trying to figure out how best to manage the Starliner's flight.

Wolves beat City at the Etihad Stadium in October - one of the reasons why they have fallen behind Liverpool - and Guardiola expects another stern test.

Speaking sarcastically, Guardiola said: "I wrote a letter to the Premier League to say thank you and we are going to the fridge after Wolves to get ready for Sheffield United". "I would like to think that the players know I'm with them on anything like this". "I think all the players, all the people who work in the club are listening to that because this would be massive for the fans".

"However, I'm in the middle of the season and I try not to think about it so as not to lose focus on the field".

Asked whether the vision he had when he started at Manchester City was coming to fruition, the Spaniard said, "It's good". If they drop a couple of games, and we win and win ...

"I hope I can tell you that I will stay, but now I cannot say it". We'll see how everybody feels after 48 hours.

"I was curious to see if we could survive in the Premier League but I came with my family, the friends are the same..." We know it's going to be incredibly hard. That extra game is to be determined and it could be at a much later date in the season this psychologically gives Liverpool an even greater edge.
