Liverpool star: “It makes it tougher for” Man City.

Liverpool pile the pressure back on Man City in the title race.

James Milner was delighted with how Liverpool continued their winning ways as they secured a 2-0 win over Cardiff on Sunday.

The midfield ace is happy with how the Reds have shifted the pressure back on champions Manchester City - who beat Spurs 1-0 yesterday at the Etihad.

Georginio Wijnaldum and Milner scored the goals in the second half that handed the Merseyside club a vital win, and, Milner revealed he is happy with how Liverpool are making it hard for Pep Guardiola’s Citizens to retain the title.

"All we can do is keep the pressure on them and win our games," the former City midfielder told Sky Sports.

"It makes it tougher for them, as if we slip up it gives them that little cushion, allows them a draw or a slip-up.

"All we can do is win the rest of our games and hopefully that's good enough. If not, fair play to City, but we are asking all the questions of them that we can.

"Both teams have been ruthless and clinical in doing their jobs. It's not easy week on week - we've lost one game all year and were second [before Sunday's result]. We go back top now, though, and puts a bit of pressure on them.

"We just have to concentrate on being perfect and will see if that's good enough."
