Dejan Lovren has warned Liverpool FC that Manchester City have few weaknesses in the Premier League title race.

The Reds are sitting at the top of the Premier League table and four points ahead of Manchester City in what is shaping up to be a competitive title race between the two clubs.

Manchester City lost for the first time this season at Stamford Bridge following a 2-0 defeat by fourth-placed Chelsea FC at the start of December.

Liverpool FC capitalised on Manchester City faltering in the English capital and the Reds have won their last five Premier League games.

Jurgen Klopp’s side were 3-1 winners against bitter rivals Manchester United at Anfield before a 2-0 win at Wolves in their final game before Christmas Day.

Manchester City missed out on their chance to reduce the deficit after a surprise 3-2 loss to Crystal Palace at The Etihad on Saturday afternoon.

Croatia international Lovren admitted that Liverpool FC can’t rely on Manchester City making mistakes in the Premier League title race.

“I’m not sure that they have any weaknesses,” Lovren told Sky Sports.

“Last year they won by 19 points. They know how to manage even when they lose. They also lost one or two games last year and still they managed to be 19 points ahead.

“It doesn’t mean anything. There are so many games in front of us and in front of them. It will be a tight race and it’s not only City, Tottenham are only a few points behind.

“You cannot sit and enjoy and say: ‘We are five or six points in front of everyone’. It doesn’t work like that. Every game for us is a final.

“They won on Saturday so we had pressure (against United the following day).

“It can be from both ways a positive thing. We will not look back, we will just look forward.

“Look, there’s a competition. This is what we want, but we don’t look at who is in front of us or behind us. It’s just about us.

“It’s more about how we train, how we do on the pitch and the result will come. There are quite a lot of games still to go but we go game-by-game.”

Liverpool FC played out a goalless draw with defending champions Manchester City in their Premier League meeting earlier in the season.

The Reds will make the return trip to Manchester City on 3 January in the top of the table clash.

Lovren moved to Liverpool FC from Southampton in a £25m deal in the 2014 summer transfer window.

The Liverpool FC defender was part of the Croatia team that reached the World Cup final in the summer before a 4-2 loss to France.
