Liverpool are blowing teams out of the water this season by destroying them in transition with rapid vertical passing, high intensity running and scoring two before the opposition know what's happened.
"There are still 14 games left, so we are going to fight until the end".
Liverpool played like a side that knew they had the chance to take a huge leap towards the title when they were held by Leicester on Wednesday, and the Reds face a tricky trip to face West Ham in London on Monday evening.
"But if we did not have the motivation we would not be here, where we are - in all competitions, in another final in the [EFL] Cup, being there in the Champions League, finishing first [in the group] and [qualifying for] the last 16 and in the league being there".
The pair of Salomon Rondon and Matt Ritchie scored for the home-side to see off City despite Sergio Aguero's opener.
"So, for me to be able to play against them, first-hand is unbelievable". We were not at our best, sometimes that happens, I can understand the players. "The second time in a game where a striker of ours is brought down at the halfway line, and we treat it like it was I don't know where". We beat Man Utd at home last season, and that was a turning point, so hopefully this can be.
Asked how morale-boosting the victory, which lifted the club five points clear of the relegation zone, and a successful completion of the Almiron deal would supply, he added: "The main thing is if we have good news tomorrow, it will be positive".
"About what [Liverpool] feel, I can not answer because I am not there", he told a pre-match news conference.
The Magpies' biggest asset is undoubtedly their manager Rafael Benitez, who has a wealth of experience in winning at the top level from his time at Liverpool, Chelsea and Real Madrid.
"Next week will be tough with Arsenal, Everton and Chelsea", he said.
"I mean, to go 1-0 up after 25 seconds and not capitalise on it, there were disturbing signs there tonight from Manchester City which I'm sure Liverpool would have looked at".
The 48-year-old also attempted to put a spin on the upset and their tricky run of upcoming fixtures as they "were still in January", and so, there could be plenty more twists and turns in Liverpool's bid to end a 29-year wait to win the league.
"In our case, every game, we have to do our best to be there, try to not give up", he said.
