Manchester City could cut Liverpool´s lead to seven points when they look to stop a recent slump at Southampton on Sunday, but ahead of their trip to the Etihad on January 3, Jurgen Klopp´s men now look well on course to deliver a first league title since 1989/90.

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has admitted his side are in good shape after Liverpool's 5-1 win over Arsenal on Saturday.

Former Arsenal striker, Ian Wright, has slammed the club's summer signing, Stephan Lichtsteiner, after his calamitous first-half display against Liverpool.

Firmino didn't even have to look at the ball when he slotted the equaliser into an empty net after Sokratis' attempted clearance rebounded off Mustafi into his path to quickly level.

LIVERPOOL, Dec 30 ― Liverpool crushed Arsenal 5-1 to move nine points clear at the top of the Premier League yesterday but manager Juergen Klopp still would not get involved in any talk of winning the title.

Only 2 minutes later, the Brazilian striker then made 2-1 with an fantastic individual effort.

"If Firmino plays well, Liverpool play well". "We haven't conceded too many goals this season, especially the first one, so you don't know what the reaction would be".

Nearby LaGuardia Airport grounded all flights for about 30 minutes in order to do an airport inspection, according to the FAA. The airport urged people to check their flight status with their carrier, saying "Many flights are departing, some are not".

Wickets topple at the MCG but India still in control
He was on eight when he feebly chipped an Ishant Sharma delivery to Agarwal at short midwicket, who took a hard diving catch. Jasprit Bumrah was India's main weapon at the MCG on day three of third Test against Australia.

"I want to know what he said when the fifth went in", they said.

But the response from the capacity Anfield crowd suggests it will be hard for the manager to temper expectations among them of a first Liverpool title in 29 years. I've been told it's the best they've had since the late 1970s, which is just incredible when you think of the team Liverpool had back then, and it's just the control in games they have. "I think we started to pay for the effort in the other games".

Klopp added: "Look, it worked so it was one of the nicest things I ever saw in my life".

Salah could have been expected to take up penalty-taking duties again when Dejan Lovren tumbled to the floor at a corner after being shoved by Kolasinac. "So far the gesture of the season".

The goalkeeper's anticipation, vision and technique allowed him to ping a volley out from his own area and launch the attack that led to Liverpool's fourth strike in first-half stoppage-time.

A useful outlet thereafter, Salah bamboozled Arsenal's defence on a couple of occasions and his understanding with Mane and the excellent Roberto Firmino contributed to an impressive win.

With third-placed Manchester City playing Southampton on Sunday, Liverpool capped an astonishing month with their ninth successive league victory.
