The 2-0 win against Wolves on Friday night was the latest example of the team winning without needing to hit top form and that is always the mark of potential champions.
Liverpool were also top at Christmas in 2008 and 2013 but let their lead slip in the closing stages, finishing second on both occasions.
And Jurgen Klopp has now given his take, saying having to adapt to a new position was a key reason. They will go somewhere and someone will beat them against the odds. We all have to be focused, not nervous. We all have to be.
"I've heard how many times in the last 10 years that when you're first at Christmas you win the title but only Liverpool don't".
"That's the only little bit where I keep the door open".
"It's all bulls-- stories".
City were left four points behind Liverpool after defeat to Palace
Klopp expects former Liverpool boss Rafa Benitez to receive a warm welcome when he returns to Anfield for the fifth time as a visiting team manager.

'Nothing has happened so far, we don't have to think about May. Don't think that because we have that number of points and they have that amount of points...
"It's so tough to win the Premier League but we are going to try". After that, Arsenal is coming. "The boys developed in an outstanding way, there are a few things which were clear before because we all get older but in this age group it's not older, just more experienced, so that always helps for the next year if you're smart enough to use it, but the boys are".
Boxing Day's meeting with Rafael Benitez's Newcastle United at Anfield will bring up the halfway point in the league campaign. "Last season we dropped points and immediately won again". If you want to enjoy the ride, to try everything you can to be as successful as possible - welcome. "If you think that, then that's the moment things go wrong". I am for sure the reason for a few things that are not that good because I am far away from being flawless, but my experience or not experience will not be key.
