Liverpool are second behind Manchester City in the Premier League, two draws for Jurgen Klopp's men with one game at hand saw the Citizens leading on goal difference.

And Sky Sports pundit Gary Nevile believes the mental challenge of winning the title will be tough for the younger players and urged Klopp to imitate Sir Alex Ferguson by shielding the juveniles from the media.

Neville told Sky Sports: "Winning the title is obviously about performance, but the mental side is huge. Our first title at Manchester United I never looked forward to it, I struggled with it, and so did other young players.

"We were dragged over the line by Eric Cantona, Peter Schmeichel, Roy Keane, those characters who had the experience to understand what it was about.

"This City team has know-how and so does Pep Guardiola. Jurgen Klopp has won a league before but not in this country. What City have done this week does apply psychological pressure.

"Liverpool have to be prepared every time they drop a point that it will be suggested they are feeling the pressure.

"Pep Guardiola and Manchester City drop a point it will be suggested there is complacency and they can't get themselves up for defending the title.

"The nature of the questioning won't change. They have to expect that, and when the questions come, don't react to it. That's difficult in your first season.

"Sir Alex Ferguson shielded young players from the media and I think that's what Jurgen Klopp will have to do in the next four to six weeks."
