Manchester City would be visiting the only ground that they were beaten last season, and Jurgen Klopp would be looking to continue his impressive record against Pep Guardiola here again.
These two teams are first and second on the Premier League table with Manchester City only topping the standings on goal difference. Liverpool suffered a defeat in midweek when they visited Napoli, while Manchester City won at Hoffenheim.
However, form or previous results usually doesn’t matter when these two teams meet. Manchester City hasn’t won a league game at Anfield since 2003, Sergio Aguero has never scored at Anfield in the Premier League, and Liverpool have won all of their last 5 home games against Manchester City in the Premier League.
A lot is at stake in this game as a Liverpool win would see them open up a 3 points gap on the defending champions, while a win for Manchester City would mean Liverpool have failed to win 4 consecutive games in all competitions.
With the international break on the horizon, both teams would be looking to get early bragging rights and seat at the top of the table at the end of the weekend.
