Manchester City believe they can beat 'world's strongest team' at fortress Anfield

Ederson out Bravo in for City says Pep

The major concern will be that City will be without their first-choice goalkeeper Ederson who was injured midweek in the Champions League, whilst Rodri and David Silva are doubts for the game. Clearly there's always competition for places at a club like City and if you can establish yourself there, then you're in a good place to be in good form when you come with us.

City took four points from Liverpool last term and had Riyad Mahrez not blazed over a late penalty, they would have won both clashes.

Reds leaders have not lost a home game since April 2017.

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

City have suffered surprise losses to Wolves and Norwich this season and De Bruyne says these results would be just as culpable for a failure to win the title as a negative one at Anfield.

It left the two teams on 20 points after that game and both Klopp and Guardiola satisfied.

"Lately, a lot of new things have been introduced in football, but I still love things how they were in the old days - people shout and get their team forward".

"I think, in the ideal scenario, you want players that are playing Champions League football, playing in matches where they're pushing to win trophies because the extra pressure that comes with those games is what you have to deal with with England", Southgate said.

A win for City would pull them within three points of Jurgen Klopp and company. Given City's injury crisis, particularly in defence, this is the opportune moment for them to strike and extend the lead to a mouth-watering nine points, in front of their own fans.

And yet there is more, so much more, to add spice to this latest collision of the Premier League's superpowers. 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.

"Do City and Liverpool play tactics here?" Klopp responded by promising not to mention the "tactical fouls" City have been accused of making under Guardiola - while, of course, mentioning them. Their record at Anfield is also formidable as they've not lost in their last 45 games on home soil so this is going to be an extremely tough game for an injury-hit City team.

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