  • Van Dijk: Liverpool not panicked by Man City and will definitely bounce back

Vincent Kompany defended his controversial tackle on Mohamed Salah in Manchester City's 2-1 victory over Liverpool by describing it as a "great challenge". The ball then almost crossed for a Liverpool goal but it was somehow cleared just before it went over the line.

Fernandinho was quoted as saying by The Guardian: "Four points is going to be interesting for the rest of the season for both teams".

Manchester City won the match 2-1 with goals from Sergio Aguero and Leroy Sane against a sole response from Roberto Firmino.

Yet to win silverware at the helm of Liverpool, Jurgen Klopp feels the critics may only be silenced by a Premier League title.

"They have to keep up, but we also have to keep up".

However, their recent record against teams in the top-six is pretty impressive, with Nuno Espírito Santo's side picking up three points against the likes of Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspur in recent weeks. But a tough fixture upfront in the Cup has posed a tough choice for Jurgen Klopp - should he prioritize Premier and Champions League over the Cup or not?

"The quicker they go out of these competitions [FA Cup, Champions League, League Cup], the more of an unbelievable chance they have to win the Premier League". This season, the FA Cup campaign gives him a chance to underline his value once more. Ole Gunnar Solksjaer became just the second United manager after the legendary Sir Matt Busby (1946) to win his first four league games in charge of the Red Devils when his side won at St James's Park midweek. Manchester City then tried to clear the ball, but goalkeeper Ederson Moraes dived and blocked it back toward his own net.

Elsewhere, expect to see the likes of Fabinho and Adam Lallana to appear in the Reds midfield, with the former establishing himself in the starting eleven more of late. Rafael Camacho and Conor Masterson are other options in defence and they may be in the squad but Klopp will probably be reluctant to start two youngsters in the back four.

Could Wolves cause a shock against the league leaders?

"So, if I was to put my money on one club for the league, it would be Liverpool".

The four-game festive Premier League programme typically passed with no end of unusual results.

He is competing with another teenager, Rafa Camacho, for a place at right-back in a much-changed line-up.

There's a bet I really like ahead of this game, and it's the straightforward Liverpool win at a scarcely believable [2.04].

Drawing Wolves may not have been the simplest of FA Cup ties for Liverpool, but it is still an ideal opportunity for Liverpool to blood some of their most promising youngsters, such as Rafa Camacho.

Bernardo was arguably the star of the show, running 13.7km - a Premier League high so far this season - and he says the result sends a message to Liverpool that the title race remains very much on. If Joel Matip and Joe Gomez had been fit, Ki-Jana would in all probability not train with us. The good thing is that if one of these boys will play on Monday, then it is all my responsibility.
