Trent is a boyhood Red, raised in West Derby, who knows how much bringing a first Premier League title to Merseyside means to the city, and how hard it has been in those fallow years since 1990.

'It's been hard for us, personally I think it's not just a home form and away form, I think it's just inconsistencies, ' he said. It means positivity. And let's trust the players, trust Klopp, trust the processes and remember that these 11 lads are all fine players who are good enough to win the Premier League.

I am of a blue persuasion when it comes to Merseyside football and so firstly I must stress how grateful I am for Manchester City.

As well, Everton may be meek and lacking confidence right now but the Toffees could also dent their neighbours title challenge, though it all depends on just how ferocious the Goodison crowd is on March 3.

"The scarves, the flags, the banners: it was something that I hadn't really experienced".

"City have had their rollicking off their manager and they've had their points dropped".

Pep Guardiola will defend his title.

Liverpool FC will take on Bundesliga giants Bayern Munich in the first leg of their Champions League round of 16 clash on Tuesday 19 February.

"But that result for City [against Chelsea] has confirmed after their hiccup, they're saying: "We're bang at it, this is how we're going to finish the season".

Their win over Bournemouth at the weekend looks to have re-energised Jürgen Klopp's side and there's not one game, looking at the games, ahead they should fear.

"Manchester City have set themselves a standard in the last week". I think that's how it will have to be for Liverpool.

The performance against Bournemouth, who have now lost nine away matches in succession and have suffered 13 defeats in the past 18 matches in all competitions, showed a return to the high-energy pressing game and clinical counter-attacking that has been so successful for Liverpool.

Jürgen Klopp's side have an average of 1.71 points against the other Big Six sides this season - City's is 2.38 - and they have Manchester United, Chelsea and Spurs to play.

The Reds are on a training camp as they prepare for the rest of the season, as they have a longer break in between games.

Speaking on his podcast, he explained that Manchester City were now favourites and that Liverpool were in for a "major battle". They are just unstoppable. "Whether we draw, win or lose it doesn't change".

Keita commanded the midfield all afternoon against Bournemouth and played a part in all three goals, including a sublime ball with the outside of his foot to Roberto Firmino in the build-up to Liverpool's third.
