Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp says he does not need any help after Manchester City overtook his side at the top of the Premier League table.
City claimed a title-race lead on goal difference by beating Everton on Wednesday after the Reds, who have a game in hand, had back-to-back draws.
Liverpool can regain first place against Bournemouth on Saturday before City face Chelsea on Sunday.
Klopp said he “didn’t read” any of the reaction to Liverpool’s two draws.
“I still know it, you feel it, with the questions you get asked, the messages I get even from friends – something obviously changed in their view,” he said.
“I got a message this week, another sign that people think I need help – I don’t need help, thank you very much, I’m fine.”
