Atsu warns Liverpool that Newcastle won’t roll over

"I don't think so, the game was incredible good, both sides, Liverpool were outstanding and a good performance from both".

2018/19 has been lacking in the unexpected upsets, bizarrely dropped points and much of the usual unpredictability of a title race, as both Manchester City and Liverpool refuse to yield, pushing each other to reach even more impressive heights.

Manchester City will need to beat Leicester on Monday night in order to maintain top sport while Liverpool face a hard trip to Newcastle in order to keep the pressure on Pep Guardiola's side. "Because otherwise you look at it, and the fact they lost 3-0 at Barcelona, and if they draw here their season's fizzled out in four days". "I was really impressed with how the players play".

Leicester beat Manchester City in December and also took them to penalties in the Carabao Cup.

The former Barcelona and Bayern Munich boss is no stranger to winning league titles with eight in his top-level managerial career so far, but believes Liverpool have been the staunchest challenger despite facing off against the likes of Borussia Dortmund and Real Madrid in previous campaigns.

While Liverpool face one former manager in Benitez on Saturday, title rivals Manchester City play another in Brendan Rodgers' Leicester City on Monday night.

Will City be celebrating their first back-to-back titles?

An interesting fixture to round off the season at home.

Benitez said: "I know the fans are supporting me and the fans are trying to convince me to stay and they try to go for the emotional way, like they did the first year". I can not imagine Leicester players coming here for their holidays. That shouldn't be a problem though as they've managed eleven goals in their last five matches with Jamie Vardy in fine form.

"I think it will be not easy at Newcastle-like Leicester will not be-but they will be well prepared to win there".
