Manchester City's Raheem Sterling must handle Liverpool returns better - Pep Guardiola

Since then the Reds have strengthened significantly and they look like genuine title contenders themselves this season.

Sterling, 23, has been booed during each game at Liverpool since his acrimonious move to City in 2015. As a player, you're looking to plant a seed in the opposition's heads that you're better than them in these big games.

They have won the past three matches between the sides, their 4-3 victory in January at Anfield being probably the best Premier League game of last season, and both legs of the Champions League quarter-final between them.

City lost in the Premier League and the Champions League at Anfield last season, shipping seven goals in the process.

"It's a tough place to go; they were on fire last time we went, Salah was on fire, Mane and Firmino, and they've got some brilliant attacking players".

It was feared the Belgian could be out for three months after suffering a knee injury in August. "They are a top side".


The Reds suffered a 1-0 reverse in the Champions League tie in Italy on Wednesday night, with Jürgen Klopp acknowledging afterwards the hosts were deserved winners but vowing his side would learn from their errors.

Man City will also make a late assessment on Kevin De Bruyne after he returned to training last week following two months out with a knee ligament injury but the Belgian global may only be fit enough for the bench.

"I was surprised the front three were playing". Liverpool's defence has performed well this season, although space can open up in their right-back zone - Eden Hazard twice got in behind in that zone last week.

In the league, City has clicked into gear and are already top of the Premier League table only dropping points away to Wolves at the end of August.

And Sky Sports pundit Neville says that he thinks it was a mistake to play all three forwards for nearly the full game against Napoli. After none of these games you go into the dressing room and think, "Now we know how to beat Manchester City", because there is no real way, no one thing that you have to do.

City's all-time goalscorer Aguero has 111 top-flight goals [148] more than Salah [37], who hopes to outshine the former Atletico Madrid striker at Anfield on Sunday. "The Police knew it before it happened, now we know it, I don't know whats going to happen".
