Tottenham, Chelsea, Arsenal and Manchester United all failed to muster a win for the second consecutive Premier League weekend as the contenders for a place in next season's Champions League stumble towards the finish line.
City's 12th successive league victory took them to 92 points, one clear of second-placed Liverpool with both clubs still having two league matches each to play this season.
Liverpool fans are of course well-known for lining the streets at Anfield ahead of big games, memorably giving City's team bus a not-so-pleasant welcome ahead of the 3-0 Champions League quarter final victory previous year.
Goals from Youri Tielemans and a Jamie Vardy double ensured Arsenal suffered a fourth loss in their last five league games, three of which have now come on the road. No it wasn't, I just thought that after Arsenal's latest capitulation, this time at Leicester, and Spurs imploding against West Ham, what is the result that would give us absolutely no clarity on the situation?
Barr expected to defend his handling of Mueller report
In his press conference on the morning of April 18, Barr repeatedly claimed that Mueller found "no collusion". Mueller did not establish that the Trump campaign colluded with Russian Federation .
"The top two are making them look a little stupid, they're 20 points in front of them", he said on Sky Sports - even before Arsenal were thumped 3-0 by Leicester on Sunday. Those men on the touchline are highly motivated to finish the season strong and improve their standing further; as are the players.
"I don't think we should discredit him suddenly and say he's a bad goalkeeper". He later bemoaned the lack of support from the Spanish public "in a hard moment in my life" and said "I haven't killed anyone".
A lot of work has also gone into analysing Liverpool's front three of Sadio Mane, Mohamed Salah and Roberto Firmino, while full-backs Andrew Robertson and Trent Alexander-Arnold are also players Barca know they have to pin back as much as possible. I've got everything to do it but I want to play games.
It is a remarkable fall from grace for the 28-year-old, who went to last year's World Cup widely regarded as one of the best keepers on the planet.
"I thought it was refreshing to hear a top manager scream that to his players".
