The Premier League title race is getting more and more exciting as the weeks go by, and after Manchester City's 1-1 draw with Liverpool on the weekend, they now place third on 63pts, with the Reds on second with 64pts, and Arsenal on first but on an equal amount of points as Liverpool.

A win against Liverpool would have been a significant boost in hopes of securing the PL title in a few months, but John Stones's 22nd-minute goal wasn't enough to take the win, as Alexis Mac Allister tucked away a penalty, five minutes after at half-time.

Man City's captain, Kyle Walker, reassured fans that the Premier League would be fought for and believes in the club's ability to achieve its goal: " It's exciting to be involved in—as a player, it's what you want to play in—it's relishing these opportunities and these rivalries."

"We need to make sure we're there right until the end, as we always do. Winning three Premier Leagues in a row is fantastic, but to do four, which no one has ever done, is what we're striving for—that's our hunger."

"There's a lot of football to be played, and there's going to be a lot of twists and turns. We need to make sure they go in our favour, and we're at the top; we'll keep fighting."

"For neutrals, it's a great spectacle (City & Liverpool's rivalry), and always a good game when these two clubs play each other. We came to get the three points, but we'll take the one."

"What he's done (Pep Guardiola), the clubs he's managed, the players he's been able to coach—he's nothing short of a genius. That's due to the work ethic he puts into the matches, the training sessions, and the detail—we must execute the plan."


Man City's attempt to win the Premier League is going much more complicated than the previous; they've played a total of 28 matches thus far, winning 19 of those, but coming out of nine games winless (Six draws and three losses).

Compared to last season, when they finished the League season with a total of 10 untriumphant results (five losses and five draws). City are just one three-pointless game away from matching that statistic, which could be done in less than 38 fixtures.

A good note to be taken is that City are only one point away from the top two, but they will have a massive chance to increase their points as they meet Arsenal in a few weeks.
