Anfield Hoodoo Haunts Manchester City In Top-Of-Table Clash Against Liverpool

Jose Mourinho

Each side head into the encounter without a loss to their name in the league and will be looking to capitalise on an early opportunity to jump ahead of their rivals and head into the worldwide break with a bounce in their step.

Beating Manchester City could be "massive" for Liverpool's season after three games without a win, according to Trent Alexander-Arnold.

What SHOULD be a cert, however, is a cracking contest between (in my opinion, lest some get upset!) the two best teams to watch and enjoy in the country.

"Now with Daniel Sturridge coming back and playing well, we've got to be careful of that too, but we have to play to our own gameplan, and not think too much about them".

Whilst City was comfortably beaten by Liverpool 3-0 away in the Champions League last season, Pep Guardiola's side has gone on a run of ten games without losing away from home in all competitions.

Manchester City star midifelder Iklay Gundogan has sent out a warning ahead of the Citizens encounter with Liverpool this weekend. When pushed on whether he could play tomorrow he said: "We'll see tomorrow".

'After today's game we have two weeks, then we go straight into games against Chelsea, in the Premier League, and Juventus, in the Champions League, with two recovery days in between, ' Mourinho said in his matchday programme notes ahead of the game against Newcastle at Old Trafford. The Champions League exit to the Reds in April was one of the rare occasions when the City boss has chosen to try to tame the opposition, rather than steamroller them using his own attacking principles. Liverpool is one of the true greatest teams in England.

"They had more chances, we didn't have a shot on target".

If Liverpool need to restore any confidence, they need only look back at their last three games against City -all wins. "Michael Stich was an outstanding tennis player, maybe better than Boris Becker, but he was not Boris Becker". Looking back on last season, they were our bogey team.

"It's not always possible unfortunately and it's always hard work, even if we're entertaining people, it's especially hard work".

Naby Keita is fit enough to take part in the game but he might not start the game.
