Pep Guardiola believes the entire world is supporting Liverpool over his Manchester City side as they battle for the Premier League title.
City defeated Newcastle United 5-0 to go three points clear.
Liverpool are still trying to achieve the unprecedented feat of winning the Premier League, Champions League, FA Cup and League Cup in the same season, and Guardiola has suggested everyone is against City's bid to thwart it.
"Everyone in this country supports Liverpool, the media and everyone," the City manager said. "Of course, because Liverpool has an incredible history in European competition -- not in Premier Leagues, because they've won one in 30 years -- but it's not a problem at all.
"Liverpool, alongside [Manchester] United, it's the most famous team, with what they have done in history -- in terms of titles, legacy, history, dramas, for many, many things.
"But we are, for the last 10, 11, 12 years, coming there. I know we are sometimes uncomfortable, but I don't care. The people want Liverpool to win more than us; it's not an issue. It's normal. Maybe they have more supporters all around the world and in England maybe more support Liverpool than us."
