Big Match Focus: Liverpool v Manchester City

The German is expecting another exciting match against Man City

"Liverpool have kept a clean sheet in their last eight Premier League home games and are unbeaten in their last 24 home league games".

Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola says Liverpool forward Mohamed Salah can not yet be compared to his striker Sergio Aguero.

Liverpool do however have a good record against Man City.

"They are so good at making a real attack and the three guys in front connect very well".

"But that would mean I forget completely how we played three days before against Chelsea, so we have to stay cool".

Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola says they "shouldn't need the police to protect the bus" on their first return to Anfield since April's hostile Champions League tie against Liverpool, BBC Sport reports. City managed to come from behind and find a late victor at Hoffenheim to record a 2-1 victory, while Liverpool were hit by a late victor in Napoli losing the game 1-0. "You could see Napoli used the atmosphere and we couldn't calm it down with our performance", said Klopp after defeat in Italy on Wednesday. City have not won at that ground since May 2003 but this news could give them the edge over their title rivals.

"Liverpool are level with City at the top of the table on points and a win today would see them go clear adding even more spice to an already fiery clash".

The Arsenal legend has made no secret of his belief that Liverpool FC will win the Premier League title this season, despite Manchester City's domination in the top flight last term.

Jurgen Klopp has tended to get the better of Pep Guardiola in their recent battles.

However, when asked if De Bruyne was in with a chance of featuring against Liverpool, Guardiola remained coy. Most consecutive wins: 18. "I've said it a few times and I can say it again: I really think the most important thing, the most important job of football, is entertaining the people, because it is only football and nothing else". Sergio has scored a lot of goals, but there were periods when he didn't score. 'We want to fight them.

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