Liverpool are 'winners' despite Premier League title slump -

Liverpool were held by a resolute draw with Aston Villa in a 3-3 draw on Monday, widening the already-wide gap to Man City and Arsenal in the title race but  Machester City manager Pep Guardiola insists the Reds are winners.

Guardiola was watching from the City training ground ahead of his press conference before they face Tottenham Hotspur.

“I saw Liverpool in the last weeks could not fight with Arsenal, but do you know the way they lose the chance to go and fight to the end?" Guardiola asked, via This is Anfield. “I saw the game against Crystal Palace second half, the game against United – the chances they missed looked unbelievable, you cannot believe it.

“I saw, I asked give me all the chances Liverpool missed, but missed without a ‘keeper, nothing, and they missed it. And for that reason they are not fighting to the end.

Guardiola would not agree with cynics who call Liverpool losers after the slump  in form.

“They are losers? No. They are failures? No. They are incredible, the same team that fights against us these many, many years. In the end, tell me how these incredible attacking players Liverpool has, they don’t score a goal? For that reason, they didn’t win, it can happen.

“But what’s important with Liverpool is that they are winners because in the end they fought for four titles, being there."

Man City face Spurs at 8pm Nigerian time on Tuesday night.
