Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp

It certainly promises to be a fascinating encounter at the top of the Premier League table as Liverpool take on Manchester City at Anfield.

Former Manchester United defender Neville has often questioned whether a Klopp team can compete in multiple competitions due to the level of intensity the German demands from his players.

Have Liverpool planted that seed in City's heads? I suspect he won't change and will hope Klopp's side are exhausted from the midweek trip to Napoli. Klopp has a clearly-defined starting XI, is unlikely to alter his tactics significantly, and we can expect a familiar teamsheet from the home side.

Both sides were involved in the UEFA Champions League earlier this week, as City beat Hoffenheim 2-1 while Jurgen Klopp's men suffered a 1-0 defeat to Napoli.

Mohamed Salah keeps his place in attack and Liverpool will be hoping he gets back to his best form while Sadio Mane once again supports Roberto Firmino in the final third. Look at the game at Manchester City - there was an offside goal, which was not offside, which could have changed the game, but we were really calm.

With both teams sitting on 19 points, a win for the Reds would allow them to start to pull away from the pack and put pressure on City, Tottenham and Chelsea. 'We can not wait until City are not there any more, ' said Klopp.

It's a long time ago Man City was able to win at Anfield.

The match can be viewed on Sky Sports Premier League in the UK. They are right. So we won the Premier League.

In team news, Kevin De Bruyne could feature in the game which would be a huge boost for the Citizens. Most consecutive wins: 18.

"Most points: 100. Most goals scored: 106".

"In the last one we were chasing the Champions League so things can be a bit different, but we haven't won there in a good number of years, so we need to make history and hopefully we can do that this Sunday". We want to fight them.

"I didn't want to lose at Napoli but, if you ask me which is the best preparation mood wise, it's losing a game. After none of these games you go into the dressing room and think, "Now we've got it, now we know how to beat Manchester City"," insisted Klopp.
