Ex-Red Garcia heaps praise on Liverpool and Mo Salah as pressure on their rivals gets harder
Ex-Liverpool midfielder Luis Garcia claims all the pressure in the Premier League title race is on Pep Guardiola, Mauricio Pochettino and their squads while Reds remain four points clear of Man City.
"I think, at the start of the season, we would have taken being top of the table at this stage," Garcia told Press Association Sport. "If they [Liverpool] are still there going into the last five games there is every chance to get the trophy.
"The pressure is on the teams behind them because when you are up front it is important you continue winning the next game and you don’t think about it. [The chasing teams] have to think about what it will be like if they fail and that is a lot of pressure."

The ex-Red also opened up on Mohamed Salah saying the Egyptian has adapted well to his new role under Jurgen Klopp and remains a great danger for any opposition.
"We all know what he is capable of and even though at the start of the season he maybe wasn’t getting as many goals as the year before now he is a player who everyone is looking at," Garcia said.
"His role has changed and now he plays in the middle as well as the right. It is not the same situation as last year when people couldn’t see or didn’t know what Salah could offer to the team. I think he is doing a great job, scoring goals with a lot of assists and he is very dangerous every game."
