Liverpool v Manchester City: Michael Owen predicts victor, scoreline

Adjust Comment Print

Though the two have also got very good defensive records this season, both conceding just three goals in seven games, matches between Liverpool and City are open affairs and more of the same can be expected on Sunday.

City have got an embarrassment of riches, but Liverpool have had their number over the past year or so.

Then two teams had quite contrasting results this past midweek, however. We don't know in this moment as well if he can train tomorrow, we have to see. "Only when the team play better and play good the striker has more chances to score goals".

They have won the past three matches between the sides, their 4-3 victory in January at Anfield being probably the best Premier League game of last season, and both legs of the Champions League quarter-final between them.

Guardiola said: "I don't play against Jurgen, I try to win against Liverpool".

"When you have a vision about the history of the Premier League and you start to compare it with them, to be closer with them, we should be so proud and we are".

Upfront, the form of Mohamed Salah is a major concern for Klopp, who addressed the slump that the Egyptian talisman is going through right now, insisting there is nothing to worry about for Liverpool fans.

Mourinho is desperate for something to go his way as Manchester United's season threatens to unravel but at least has the comfort of facing struggling Newcastle.

During his press conference Pep confirmed he could welcome back his star man, Kevin De Bruyne this weekend.

Kyle Walker believes whoever wins Sunday's showdown between Liverpool and Manchester City will become the favourites for the Premier League title.

Both sides were in action in the Champions League in midweek and will want three points to go into the global break. We beat them at home last season but at Anfield we weren't able to play well enough to beat them. Since Jurgen took over he has a lot of weapons to attack on the counter and in set pieces and they take advantage of mistakes. The Reds registered three wins over the Citizens during the 2017/18 season. I suspect he won't change and will hope Klopp's side are exhausted from the midweek trip to Napoli.
