Liverpool Up To Third Place after Leap Frogging Man City

FOOTBALL By Mirror | April 17th 2017 | 1 min read

Liverpool playmaker Roberto Firmino settled a scrappy game with a close-range header in first half stoppage-time to condemn Albion boss Tony Pulis to his first ever home league defeat against the Reds.

The Brazilian converted a flick-on from Lucas Leiva to seal Liverpool's fifth win in their last seven games.

Liverpool are unbeaten since losing at Leicester in late February and now lead City by two points  after leap-frogging Manchester City, although Pep Guardiola's team have a game in hand in the race for an automatic spot in the Champions’ League group stage

With United, Arsenal and Everton also still in contention for a top four finish, Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp isn't getting carried away just yet.

"It is the Premier League, Arsenal have three games in hand so we should not think about this," Klopp said.

"Today we could only get to 66 points, so it feels perfect. Next week we try at Anfield to get 69, and let's carry on.

"If we do what we have to do we will be where we want to be."
