Jurgen Klopp called Liverpool beating Newcastle United 4-0 a "pretty flawless day" but admitted to being confused by Anfield's cheers late in the game.

However, another routine win and a 12th clean sheet in 19 Premier League games will do little to dampen expectations ahead of a huge week for Liverpool with Arsenal visiting Anfield on Saturday before a visit to City on January 3.

At the halfway stage of the league season, the win over Newcastle takes Liverpool's points tally to 51 - meaning it is the club's best ever start to a season.

Pep Guardiola insists his belief in his Manchester City players will not waver after they suffered another damaging defeat in their quest for back-to-back Premier League titles.

City coped admirably in Kevin De Bruyne's absence for most of the campaign through injury thanks to an array of creative midfielders, but have badly missed Fernandinho's ability to play the more destructive role in midfield in the last two games.

Liverpool FC have established themselves as the firm favourites to win the top-flight title this season and they pulled further clear at the top of the table on Boxing Day. "I'm really naive, I thought that is really nice 'thank you very much.' Then now I heard after the game it was about another result". The former Norwich star has five goals and three assists in his first season at King Power Stadium.

"I'm sure they'll answer them, I'm not questioning them in that way, but I think it's nice we have someone chasing this City side".

"We want to create our own history".

"The fact Liverpool are with them now it maybe asks questions of this Man City side that we haven't seen before".

There was a time when Man City's goalscoring form meant they had a so-called "extra point" with their superior goal difference; that has now been wiped out by the Reds' near-impregnable defence. "We have to leave that and we have to try to win again for our mood, our confidence, for our desire". "We must keep this feeling and togetherness".
