Sarri hails 'great player' Higuain ahead of Man City clash

Jurgen Klopp's side have been held to back-to-back draws against Leicester and West Ham

A 2-0 win at Everton on Wednesday night that took City back to the top of the table on goal difference came nearly two years to the day since his side were thrashed 4-0 at Goodison Park.

'I got a message this week, another sign that people think I need help - I don't need help, thank you very much, I'm fine! - in the last 10 games, City dropped 12 points and we dropped seven. Whether it is me as manager, the players - who, like me, are fortunate to represent this club - or those of you in the stands, we all know that the greatest moments come when we all pull together. Not really, but the view from outside is completely different.

City lead the table on goal difference from Liverpool, with both sides 12 points clear of Chelsea.

"That's the world outside, and we live in that world".

"I think we will be able to fight for the top four this season".

"When some people were critical of the atmosphere against Leicester I was grateful that they filled the ground on a night when the weather wasn't the best and stayed with the team until the very end". "It was kind of predictable, and if you want to be top of the table and a champion at the end of the season you have to show in situations like that - and there are worse situations - real passion, real desire, you have to fight".

Maurizio Sarri has downplayed Pep Guardiola's suggestion that Chelsea are still in the Premier League title race as he prepares his team to face leaders Manchester City on Sunday.

President Trump speaks at National Prayer Breakfast
It is meant to bring bipartisan political leaders and their religious counterparts together to meet, pray and build relationships. Eisenhower has attended that annual breakfast, which typically includes members of Congress and foreign dignitaries.

"It's normal", Klopp said of the response to the West Ham result. "Be hard, put your foot in". I don't have the English saying, but it's like shouting your soul on the pitch, that's how we say it in Germany.

"The good thing is we all know the job we have to do".

This though did not seem to be the case in early December, however, when the Blues inflicted City's first league defeat of the season, winning 2-0 at Stamford Bridge.

"We need to work".

"We have a good relationship". We built a really strong squad but it's a squad built for the future and not only this season.

"If they are a wee bit nervous then you can understand it but that doesn't stop them cheering the boys on". When it gets towards the finishing line that's when you need them most of all.
