The Premier League title race is hotting up as we get into the final run in. Liverpool and Man City currently sit on 65 points while Spurs are five points behind the pair, with Pep Guardiola’s side having played one extra game than the other two teams.

While Liverpool had built up a substantial lead a few weeks ago, the Reds have had a few recent slip-ups while City look like they are peaking at the right time.

Meanwhile, Tottenham have been ticking along nicely and have continued to get over the line in their last few games despite missing the likes of Harry Kane and Dele Alli.

With Kane and Alli expected to be back shortly, everything is set for a fantastic race to the finish line. With 12 games to go, Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has outlined what it will take to win the title.

The German said that while there are no guarantees given how closely contested the race is, the team that shows the most desire will likely end up Champions.

Speaking to Liverpool Echo, the 51-year-old said, “We are convinced about the way we want to play but you cannot get a guarantee.

“I’m sorry for that, but especially in that league, you cannot get a guarantee. Man City doesn’t have a guarantee in this moment, Tottenham doesn’t have a guarantee but a big opportunity like us and City as well.

“So these three teams will fight for the title, that’s how it is, and I don’t know who will be there at the end.But it will be a team who plays the rest of the season with a lot of confidence, with an outstanding high work-rate, with a lot of passion, full of desire, all that stuff. Who plays really front-footed and tries to win, not tries to avoid losing.

“And if all three are doing that, then we have to respect that as well and see how the results work. But we will fight for it with all we have.”
