Klopp fires a warning to Man City following Liverpool win over Burnley
Man City will play quite a few of their remaining games at least a few hours before Liverpool until the season ends, meaning LFC will always be playing catch-up.
Of course, that also puts Pep's side in an unenviable position of all eyes being on them and awaiting a slip up.
That was the case again this weekend, as it took an offside goal to get things going and settle Man City into a rhythm but Liverpool responded with style, winning 4-2 on Sunday.
Rather than let the moment pass, Jurgen Klopp has now hit back at Guardiola and his players' constant comments over the past week about the Reds.
Speaking following the game, Klopp told the assembled press: "The message of the day (in the title race) was 'nobody gets rid of us' if we play as we played today.
"So, just do the job and that is what the boys did all the time. We have only to make sure that we stay in the really interesting competition on top of the table.
"We had the perfect mixture of fighting the opponent, fighting the circumstances and playing football. That was really good and I liked it."
Burnley are far from the team's toughest remaining opponent but the Reds got the job done and, on another day, would've had twice as many goals for their hard work.
So, it's on to Munich on Wednesday night to try to get over the hurdle of Bayern Munich on their own turf. Roll on Wednesday.
