Kevin De Bruyne could return for Manchester City vs Liverpool

Manchester City ran away with the league last season, but it was Liverpool who handed them their first defeat of the season.

"Manchester City is always tough, even when we won 3-0 in the Champion League".

"You've got to beat the best if you want to be the best".

Manchester City captain Vincent Kompany has warned Liverpool they are not the only to team to have got better since last season.

Manchester City and Liverpool started the day in first and second place respectively on the same points with only goal difference separating them.

"I do genuinely believe Liverpool have a chance to win the league, but the biggest obstacle is the potential tiredness of that front three". If we would not entertain the people, why would we play it then?

The match can be viewed on Sky Sports Premier League in the UK. There have been 23 goals shared between the sides in their last six meetings at Anfield (in the league) that's an average of 3.8 goals per game.

Barcelona travelled to Wembley to face Tottenham in the Champions League and by the end of the game it had turned into the Messi show.

The midfield battle will be key once again, and unlike last time, Liverpool will not have the pace and drive of Oxlade-Chamberlain to trouble City, which is why Keita becomes all the more critical against Man City.

The general pattern from the recent fixtures between these sides (and from matches in general when Klopp faces a possession-based team) is that Liverpool start well because of their energetic pressing, but City play their way into the contest gradually.

Key Stat: Only Manchester City (21) have scored more goals than Liverpool (15) in the Premier League this season. Each striker could write a book about these moments when you score without knowing how exactly it works, how you did it, with each ball in a ideal way and stuff like that.

City were handed a boost as both Benjamin Mendy and Kevin De Bruyne trained with the squad.

"You have to be ready, you need a fantastic football team - which thank God I have - with outstanding character, ready to be really courageous, ready to make mistakes".

"It will be hard work, no problem with that, everybody knows it".

"But on Sunday that - at least - will be 100 per cent different".
