Guardiola 'Worried', Klopp Believes Race To Go To 'The Final Day'

With the premier league season half way through Liverpool extended their lead on the top of the table with 4-0 win over Newcastle United while Manchester City succumbed to 2nd consecutive loss beaten 1-2 by Leicester City. Tottenham thrashed Bournemouth 5-0 to move 2nd in the table.

Only 7 points separate the top 3 and Liverpool's boss Jurgen Klopp says the title race will go down to the very last match.

"We play City soon - if I was them I would think there is only four points because we still have to play them, then we play Arsenal before then as well," Klopp said after the match.

"The only thing that matters to us is the performance and keeping that level of performance. It's good but that's all. Tottenham are flying - they had a difficult summer but they are doing brilliant.

"We are on a good run as well. Chelsea will win, Arsenal will win - it will be a race until the final day.

"But we are in it and that's important. We're just creating a basis for the rest of the season, and the basis after the first part of the season is obviously a good one."

Defending champions Manchester City who were 13 points clear at the top last season, now face a uphill task for the second half of the season.

"Now there will be doubts but we have to change the dynamic," said Guardiola after his side followed up a surprise 3-2 defeat at home to Crystal Palace with a 2-1 loss at Leicester City.

"Of course we are worried [about not keeping clean sheets], the result is what counts, we lost.

"We are together, we will work harder and we will come back with some good results. The season is very long and we have lots to fight for."
