Pep Guardiola believes Liverpool have helped City maintain their high standards

QUIZ: Liverpool Premier League era league positions

Liverpool are one of four Premier League sides to have reached the last four in European competition this season, with Spurs competing alongside them in the Champions League while Arsenal and Chelsea chase down Europa League honours.

It therefore beggars belief why Huddersfield made a decision to try playing out from the back in such a lax manner in the opening phase of play in tonight's Premier League clash against Liverpool.

Liverpool host Wolves on the final day of the season, with City travelling to Brighton.

Even if the Reds do not end up topping the table, they will nearly certainly break the record for most points won by a team finishing second in the Premier League, as they are just one away from equalling Manchester United's haul of 89 from 2011-12.

The Reds, who have reached two European finals and are now in the Premier League title race under the German's watch, are eyeing lucrative opportunities away from the pitch.

The manager of Liverpool's side that literally slipped up in another heated race with City and missed out on the 2013-14 title by two points, he now coaches Leicester City, the second of Man City's three remaining opponents and a club that already beat Man City this season (albeit with Claude Puel as manager).

One of the marquee matches of the Serie A calendar, Inter welcome Juventus to San Siro on Saturday, knowing the battle to qualify for the Champions League next season is well and truly on.

He said: "Next season Chelsea are getting better, (Manchester) United are, Tottenham are. It has never been done in La Liga, that a team receives the trophy when it wins, as happens in other leagues".

They have earned eight points at the John Smith's Stadium this season with one home fixture remaining (against Manchester United on Sunday 5 May). "If we win it, we win it". "Last year, we won the league with games to spare".

Liverpool fans will be dreading the possibility of the man they used to worship, and who almost helped win them the title in 2014, scoring against them in such important matches. Last season, we were 25 points behind.

"If we are going to give Liverpool some hope, it is Burnley", Holland said.

Having suffered two consecutive humbling losses to Everton and Manchester City, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side come into the game with their confidence at a low, whilst the Blues blew a great chance themselves when they managed just a draw to Burnley at Stamford Bridge.

"You always have something else in your head when you are playing but I want to separate the two things because of how important it is to win the league".

"Also, against Crystal Palace, we should have said "let's play calmly, we're 3-0 up and Manchester City have to play in midweek", but we had that anxiety".
