Tough task for Man City as they travel to Anfield

Tough task for Man City as they travel to Anfield

They will host the champions Manchester City at Anfield on Sunday afternoon in what could end up being a season-defining match.

Ederson will miss Manchester City's match this weekend versus Liverpool due to a muscular injury. City controlled the early portions of the match, and Bernardo Silva's pass in the box hit Alexander-Arnold's outstretched arm with City attacker Raheem Sterling running in behind.

Pep Guardiola's side travel to Anfield, having not won there in 16 years, knowing a victory would swing the title pendulum back in their favour.

Alisson will continue in goal for Liverpool against City, and will start his fifth league game of the season. The right back switched the ball to left back Andy Robertson, whose subsequent cross to Salah left the ball on a platter for the Egyptian striker's run. They made history by winning the league in 2017-18 with 100 points then retained it last season, staying ahead of Liverpool by putting together 14 successive wins to maintain a one-point advantage. Anything other than a win and it is still game-on for both teams. Klopp responded by promising not to mention the "tactical fouls" City have been accused of making under Guardiola - while, of course, mentioning them.

A win for City would pull them within three points of Jurgen Klopp and company.

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. The way they play they demand incredible attention in all the details for 95 minutes.

No matter where you are on the planet, you can see what channel the Liverpool vs Man City clash is available on here.

Liverpool's past two home league games against Leicester City and Liverpool have been won 2-1, both secured with late penalties awarded for fouls on Mane.

Ex-Liverpool forward Crouch has stuck his neck on the line by claiming he feels his former side will stretch their lead at the top of the table by beating City.

Manchester City, meanwhile, are now second and six points behind the Reds as Pep Guardiola's men look to catch the Merseyside outfit and cut their lead down to three points.

"If you just think "Let's see what happens" against that team there I think it's not possible".
