Liverpool were eight points clear at the top of the Premier League, heading into this weekend and Jurgen Klopp will be desperate to maintain that lead on Sunday.
So far this season, Manchester City have not completely been in the sort of form which saw them secure the Premier League title for two seasons in a row.
However, Pep Guardiola’s side did follow up the 2-0 home loss to Wolves with a comfortable win away to Crystal Palace on Saturday to put a little bit of pressure on Liverpool ahead of Sunday’s fixture.
Klopp witnessed his side fail to score at Old Trafford last season in what proved to be a decisive draw in this fixture as City ended up winning the title by just a point.
The Liverpool boss will be eager to win on Sunday and watch his side continue their long winning streak in the competition while restoring their commanding lead over Manchester City.
