Five talking points ahead of Manchester City's title showdown with Liverpool

Five talking points ahead of Manchester City's title showdown with Liverpool”

So while Liverpool do not need to go all-out for the win, they can get it if Salah can isolate against his marker on a regular basis.

Raheem Sterling has issued a warning to former club Liverpool ahead of Thursday night by insisting Manchester City "can beat anyone".

Wijnaldum, in particular, has been one of the unsung heroes for Liverpool this season, often springing his way into the half spaces to ease up his side's transition game.

City responded to shock losses against Crystal Palace and Leicester by beating Southampton on Sunday, and Aguero believes they must focus on their own strengths rather than the threat of Liverpool.

"Even if we don't win this game we will be going for so many titles this season". We played football and we had some real passing moments.

Liverpool are seven points clear at the top of the table, with Pep Guardiola already admitting second-placed City's title challenge will be over if they lose to the Reds this week.

The importance of Fernandinho was highlighted by City suffering defeats in back-to-back matches which he missed, but he returned last time out and beats the likes of Jordan Henderson, Naby Keita and Fabinho to a place in midfield.

"It's the most attractive game of the Premier League, so we want to perform well", Gundogan said to SID in Germany.

"I know today nobody trusts us, nobody makes one coin for us, but it is what it is".

"It is one of the most hard games you can play in the modern football world, away at City", Klopp said. There's no secret, whatever we know and then I have to decide if I give other information on top or not. So predicting a starting XI for what is our most important game of the season so far is fraught with difficulty.

This will be quite the duel as one of the world's best strikers comes up against arguably the world's best defender.

"That's what we will try to do, it's what we try to do every game".

Ex-England midfielder Milner lifted the Premier League title with City in 2011-12 and 2013-14.

"I just can't see how they can stop Liverpool from scoring goals".

Man City have won their first Premier League match of the calendar year in 11 of the last 12 years - losing the other in 2012 away at Sunderland.

Here you will find all the latest videos from Manchester City, including, all Premier League goals, highlights, behind-the-scenes footage, training and much more. Jurgen Klopp's men have not just accepted the gift, but ruthlessly taken advantage. Pep Guardiola's side looked to be turning things around with a 3-1 win over Southampton but Liverpool will be a completely different test, with the Spaniard admitting their opponents may be the best team in the world.
