Jürgen Klopp and Liverpool FC continue to create excitement in the English football championship and can hope to win the title.

The Premier League runners-up beat Aston Villa FC, coached by Liverpool legend Steven Gerrard, 2-1 (1-1) on Tuesday night and put Manchester City under pressure.

In the table, Klopp and his team are now level on points behind the leader.

The league leaders coached by Pep Guardiola also have 86 points, the better goal difference and one game less.

The champions play at Wolverhampton Wanderers on Wednesday and can then extend the lead back to three points.

Liverpool struggled in Birmingham.

Three days after the draw against Tottenham Hotspur, the Klopp team conceded a goal in the third minute through Douglas Luiz.

Although Liverpool quickly equalized through former Bundesliga player Joel Matip (6th), they created few scoring chances.

In addition, the Reds had to replace the ailing Fabinho after half an hour.

Even after the change, the guest had problems at Villa Park.

But Sadio Mané made it 2-1 against the equal hosts with his 15th goal of the season.

However, the game of the favorites did not become more sovereign due to the lead.

Liverpool now have two league games against FC Southampton and Wolverhampton to overtake Man City.
