Carragher: Chelsea can win Premier League

Ilkay Gundogan Manchester City 2018-19

Liverpool started the league season off with six wins on the trot, but their fine run of form has been halted by a League Cup defeat and Premier League draw to Chelsea and a Champions League loss to Napoli.

If Liverpool need to restore any confidence, they need only look back at their last three games against City, all of which they won.

Pep Guardiola has surprisingly revealed that Manchester City might be able to call on Kevin De Bruyne when his side visits Anfield tomorrow.

De Bruyne was not expected to return until nearer the end of October, or even November, after damaging cruciate ligaments back in August but following treatment in Barcelona he has made a rapid recovery.

"We will see tomorrow", said the City boss. Liverpool is one of the true greatest teams in England. "But that's really an important thing and that's why we have to try to create constantly or as often as possible".

It is a unsafe approach with Klopp having a better record against Guardiola going back to their time when they were rivals at Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund - winning half of their 14 encounters and drawing two more.

"The best way is that when the people arrive at the stadium, they are going to see a football game and enjoy watching both sides, that is the best way". We judge the players before they came in and from that time we work together. When somebody's telling me, "Good luck for Sunday", I think always, "Unfortunately, we need it".

"Why should our fans have to protect our bus?"

Apart from the bus damage, City have a score to settle on the pitch with Liverpool who beat them three times out of four last season. Are you kidding me? I would like the police to go home at 4.30 with their families, drinking a beer and loving the show.

Since then Manchester City have achieved three Premier League crowns, a feat that Liverpool have not yet managed to complete. "'But I think it will be hard for Spurs to challenge for the title with their squad depth and how many players went to the World Cup but I wouldn't write off Chelsea with Eden Hazard in the form he's in." .
