Liverpool relishing Man City challenge, declares Martin Skrtel

Liverpool centre-half Martin Skrtel insists the Reds are relishing the challenge against Manchester City

Liverpool are relishing their potential title decider against Manchester City at Anfield next Sunday, according to Martin Skrtel.

The Reds moved back to the top of the Premier League title and four points clear of third-placed City, who have played two games less than Brendan Rodgers’s side.

We are going into it in great form and we will be doing everything we can to keep this winning run going

However, Liverpool will win their 19th top-flight crown if they win their remaining five league games, and Skrtel underlined the Reds desire to continue their winning run.

“Things are going well but there is still a long way to go,” Skrtel told the ECHO.

“We can’t look too far ahead. We need to keep going game to game and now our focus is on getting three points against Manchester City.

“We will look forward to that challenge. We know the atmosphere created by our fans will be amazing.

“We played well at the Etihad earlier in the season and were very unlucky not to take something from that game.

“We are going into it in great form and we will be doing everything we can to keep this winning run going.

“It’s exciting. This is why you play football – for a season like this. You want to be up there challenging for titles.

“There are still five games to play and we all want to keep going in this way and extend this winning run. We just need to stay focused and keep working.”
