    Teams haven't set themselves to hit Liverpool on the break until now which is why they've being doing worse recently. I have doubts about Arsenal cracking the top four let alone top two. Man City have the issue, but I do think that attacking wise they have enough fire power to score goals.
    People say that but Liverpools dominant possession stats says otherwise. United, Burnley and Southampton did it successfully so other teams certainly would have tried to do the same but failed once Liverpool were already a goal or two ahead and so forced to come out (and hence why Liverpool score even more goals)

    Doesn't your point of "having to score two or three goals" to win games apply to City if you agree they have defensive issues? Why do they get a free pass but Liverpool don't?

    Sides who park the bus always end up with lower possession stats. Even then there's no guarantee of possession equalling goals/wins otherwise Man Utd would have been top last season and Citeh would be leading this season.

    Teams don't park the bus when they're behind for obvious reasons, that style of play is mainly for scoreless draws and 1-0's.

    Man City have defensive issues, but I think they are better attacking wise especially to deal with a parked bus. For starters, they have midfielders like KDB and Silva who can thread game breaking passes as opposed to workhorses like Can and Henderson.

    How does that support your claim that Liverpool never faced parked buses earlier on in the season? Man City do have better attacking players but Liverpool have scored more goals than them so far this season which says alot.
