Gary Lineker Trolls Liverpool Fans After Jurgen Klopp's Men Move Eight Points Clear Of Manchester City
Gary Lineker has hilariously poked fun at Liverpool over their eight-point advantage over Manchester City at the top of the Premier League.
Jurgen Klopp's men extended their lead over the defending champions with their 2-1 victory over Leicester City on Saturday.
And City suffered a 2-0 defeat to Wolves at the Etihad on Sunday to put Liverpool in a comfortable position in the early stages of the season.
Lineker pounced on the opportunity to troll Liverpool fans and tweeted: "Surely it's Liverpool's title now. It's not like they've given up substantial leads before."

Unsurprisingly, the 58-year-old Match of the Day presenter triggered several Reds supporters on Twitter.

Liverpool were ten points clear of City in the title race last December after they thrashed Arsenal 5-1.
But the Reds would ultimately fail to hold onto their lead and City would reclaim the title.
Adama Traore scored a second-half brace against City to secure a memorable win for Wolves.
However, City boss Pep Guardiola admitted after the match that it was "not our best day."
He told Sky Sports: "We started good, we wanted to be patient with our game because we know how good they defend.
"We let them run twice, got nervous a little bit and our process to create chances was not good.
"We had the problems on the counter-attack in the end and it was a bad day.
"They defend. They play long balls and defend, they then go on the counter. It is physical team, a strong team so know how good they are.
"We know their qualities and we knew how they scored the goals. We were not organised, lost balls in positions we could not lose them in.
"We had two chances, one onto the crossbar and with Bernardo Silva. They did really well.
"We are going to come back again to try."
Some fans have even demanded that the ex-Barcelona manager should be axed as #PepOut trended on Twitter after Wolves' win.
