They finished 19 points clear of second-placed Manchester United, so even if Liverpool lost the rest of their games this season and City win all of theirs, we will see a closer finish than last season.

Liverpool's Danny Ings, on loan at Southampton, could not play for the home team.

But once Naby Keita levelled with a deflected header in the 36th minute, his first goal for Liverpool, the visitors were relentless in their pursuit of a crucial win.

Long's strike was also significant in that it marked an inevitable, but still unwelcome, milestone for Liverpool who have now conceded 5000 goals in the English top-flight, 125 years after Coombe Hall netted the first goal against the Reds for Blackburn in 1894.

Jordan Henderson came on and brought aggressiveness, verbal aggressiveness, we had direction again after that. The most hard job in the last 500 years of football was to replace Steven Gerrard.

The Reds looked a step off the mark on the flanks at St Mary's, with Trent Alexander-Arnold looking exhausted at right-back. After that we controlled it more.

"It wouldn't surprise me if City dropped points in two games, and Liverpool dropped points in two games", he added.
