Manchester City defender Kyle Walker has sent a title warning to Liverpool despite the Citizens falling 14 points off the top of the standings. Jurgen Klopp’s side have dropped just two points during the opening 16 games of the campaign and that has helped them secure a comfortable lead in the quest for their maiden title.
The Citizens have been for a while fancied to keep up with the Reds in the title race but things have got out of hand over the past few weeks, where they have failed to keep a winning run going. As a result, they are 14 points adrift of the Reds but Walker believes the Citizens need to remain positive and build a winning streak.
He told: "It's a massive gap, we know that. We need to keep fighting until the end. It's not over until it's over, we will keep trying. We need to keep this mentality for the next games. Our focus is to win every game. We don't think about the table. We need to focus on the positive and keep fighting. We are focused to keep improving, keep winning games. That's our mentality. We need to remain focused and try to do our best in every game."
At the moment, Leicester seem to have the best chance of competing with the Reds for the league title and they are currently second on the table with an eight-point deficit. Under Brendan Rodgers, they have already exceeded the early expectations and their credentials could be tested towards the end of the year where they are scheduled to face Manchester City and Liverpool in back-to-back games.
Meanwhile, the Citizens are scheduled to face Dinamo Zagreb on the road in the midweek Champions League clash. Thereafter, they have an away Premier League game at Arsenal, where they should be favourites, considering the dreadful form of the north Londoners. The Gunners are winless in seven league games on the bounce.
