Liverpool vs Manchester City predictions & preview

In the first Champions League game we made a good performance except at the end of the first half.

City have got an embarrassment of riches, but Liverpool have had their number over the past year or so.

Each meeting between the two club's in recent years has seen Firmino act as a personal body guard for Fernandinho, effectively meaning his national compatriot has been unable to receive the ball without the Liverpool forward's say-so. "What I want to see is the team alive, and we are alive".

"But a guy who has the quality to score 50 goals in a season always has that quality".

Liverpool's late midweek defeat to Napoli was the worst possible preparation for Jurgen Klopp's side ahead of a potential title clash in the Premier League against Manchester City on Sunday, with injury to Naby Keita adding the nail to the coffin.

"I think Sergio has proved it now and I can assure you, having played against him when I was at Tottenham, he's a nightmare - a complete nightmare to play against".

"When you have a vision about the history of the Premier League and you start to compare it with them, to be closer with them, we should be so proud and we are".

Martin Keown is backing Liverpool FC to ease to a 3-2 win over Manchester City at Anfield on Sunday evening.

Each side head into the encounter without a loss to their name in the league and will be looking to capitalise on an early opportunity to jump ahead of their rivals and head into the worldwide break with a bounce in their step.

However, when asked if De Bruyne was in with a chance of featuring against Liverpool, Guardiola remained coy. We will make a decision when he has spoken to the doctor.

Guardiola signed the Frenchman for £52m from Monaco past year and the player has been a regular starter this season since returning from a long-term knee injury. Most consecutive wins: 18.

"It was a tough one and it was hard to take, but they're the type of lessons you learn from the most".

"But we'll try again, knowing that they have a very good squad but we will go with 100 per cent, so we can try to get the three points". Salah still hasn't hit the heights of last season, although he has managed three goals.

"I'm hoping this is the game of the season, with everyone at their best".
