Liverpool: Klopp makes Man Utd penalty claim after loss
Liverpool currently sit top of the Premier League table but are facing a battle with the likes of Manchester United and Manchester City for the title. Jurgen Klopp’s side are in the midst of an injury crisis and lost to Southampton last night to give their rivals hope.
It means United could leapfrog them to the top of the table with a win in their next Premier League match against Burnley next week.
The final table has been predicted and it is not good news for Liverpool as they are set to lose out to Manchester City.
Pep Guardiola’s side hammered Chelsea at the weekend and Football Web Pages’ algorithm says City will go on to lift the trophy.
They are predicted to beat Liverpool by three points to regain their crown.

In fact, Spurs are set to finish third on goal difference and end on the same points total as Liverpool.
It is even worse for Chelsea who are set to finish down in ninth.
With Frank Lampard under pressure, a managerial change could alter their fortunes in the second half of the season though.
