Peter Crouch predicts Liverpool against Manchester City

Tough task for Man City as they travel to Anfield

As good as Manchester City are such a point gap would make Liverpool hard to catch.

Man City have been dealt a major blow with the news that Ederson is set to miss out after suffering a thigh injury against Atalanta so Claudio Bravo is expected to deputise between the sticks. When I look back at the games I used to look forward to, they were the Man United vs Liverpool's, especially at Anfield, Man United vs Man City, but these are the games at Anfield, I love the whole scenario of these games.

Who could Klopp start in this important game?

"There is of course within the club and locally, but with the big clubs that's national".

If City feel some of their achievements have been undervalued while lavish praise has been showered on Klopp and Liverpool after their Champions League triumph, then they have a valid point.

The video game's extensive database has been used to simulate the Premier League season, resulting in a big shock.

"The history, yes, but not a real contender, to win the Premier League or be on top, and he did it".

"It's not [about] adapting, it's because they are good", Guardiola said.

"I'm pretty sure that if there's a chance to win at Anfield it's when you believe you're going to win the game".

Jamie Vardy, James Maddison pull Leicester City further clear of Arsenal
We all thought, deep down at the start of the season, that the way we play, we could challenge for obviously top six. Vardy has been impressive as Brendan Rodgers' side maintained their strong start to the season last month.

Klopp had opted to leave out two of his three star attackers from the starting XI against Genk in the midweek, with both Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino getting only a few minutes from the bench.

"We have to play our best game, everybody in the stadium has to be in absolutely top shape", the German added. It is a rivalry with a serious edge on and off the pitch - and the evidence has been there again in the build-up to Sunday's game.

Guardiola admits he can not offer any magic bullet to explain away City's dire record at Anfield, with a Nicolas Anelka inspired 2-1 win in 2003 their only successful trip since 1981.

However, Klopp's record stands firm against Guardiola.

"Do City and Liverpool play tactics here?"

It was the first sign of any underlying public tension involving the two managers.

Liverpool's recent run of victories has been underlined by their will to win, rather than dominating their opponents perfectly shown last weekend when Sadio Mane scored a last-gasp victor against Aston Villa.

The title may be on the line at Anfield on Sunday but it is the backdrop which makes this even more compelling.
