Manchester City seek team bus safety assurances before Liverpool match

2019-20 Premier League – Liverpool vs Man City Preview & Prediction

Of course it is a match worth six points, and we have to do our best: "defend well and play good football".

The Brazil global was taken off at half-time of City's 1-1 Champions League draw with Atalanta on Wednesday at San Siro with a muscular problem.

The Premier League leaders welcome City to Anfield knowing that victory will move them nine points clear of the reigning champions with almost a third of the season played.

The Turkish centre back scored his first goal in the colours of Leicester City during the last game in the Premier League.

Pep Guardiola has already been locked in a fierce battle of wits against Klopp this week, accusing Mane of being a "diver", while the German retorted with a dig against City's apparent use of "tactical fouls".

"The last three games we played 0-0 at home, then lost 2-1 at the Etihad where we almost scored a goal and then the last one was a draw in the Community Shield, before we lost the shoot-out".

"To see a player better than him, or with potential to be better or play exactly the same as him is really hard".

"Sometimes you want to adapt to teams as good as Liverpool", Guardiola said.

"The red card at Atalanta is because we lost the ball in a unsafe position. Respect that guy, he is an incredible, top, top 'keeper".

Liverpool can establish a nine-point lead over Manchester City on Sunday but Klopp said the title race is too early to call regardless of the outcome.

"I don't think we struggle with convincing players". "Obviously, at this moment in the year, it is a big game, but it is not all telling for me". You see the team, what is the weak point? "I don't think it was Man City specific", he added.

And now, after leaving City following their historic treble season, Kompany has outlined why winning in the title in such circumstances was even more special.

French star Kylian Mbappe is out of Liverpool's price range, the Premier League leaders manager and long-time admirer Jurgen Klopp says.

They also highlighted how well last season's visit had gone in terms of a lack of trouble.

And when the two sides faced each other at the Etihad Stadium back in January, Guardiola came out with a line that summed up the common sentiment: "Everybody is asking what happens if we lose. And he did it - in three or four years he built something marvellous to watch".
