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

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

The two early Premier League pacesetters will go head-to-head when Liverpool host Manchester City at Anfield on Sunday in a potentially decisive clash. "They are a top side and reached the Champions League final".

Liverpool's ability to get the better of Guardiola's tactics in recent meetings comes from an aggressive approach which limits the control City have on dominating key positions, and Milner will be vital in stopping their creative hub in Silva.

Guardiola's teams can be hard to predict as he is never shy from a tactical innovation, but we expect him to go with a full-strength 4-1-4-1 here, his most common formation. "I've said it a few times and I can say it again: I really think the most important thing, the most important job of football, is entertaining the people, because it is only football and nothing else".

"Salah is younger, it was his first year back in England since his time at Chelsea, so we will see in the future, but a guy who has the quality to score almost 50 goals in a season always has that quality", he said, per the Mirror.

Liverpool are now second to City on goal difference alone but, for all the praise they've received so far this season, the Merseysiders have not won in three games - a League Cup draw and Premier League loss to Chelsea followed by Wednesday's 1-0 defeat by Napoli.

With Jordan Henderson likely to take his place in the midfield three, that energy and pressing will be lost to a deeper and more reserved player.

"The best way is that we should not need the police".

A turn toward the north is expected later today, with that motion at a faster forward speed continuing through early Wednesday. TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WCTV) - The National Hurricane Center is beginning to issue advisories for Potential Tropical Cyclone 14.

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

Sergio Aguero is in fine form up front for Manchester City with five goals from seven league games, but has yet to score an away goal at Anfield.

Just seven games into the Premier League season, no knockout blow can be landed this weekend.

"We've had a good season so far", he said.

Liverpool may have beaten City three times in a row last season - but Virgil van Dijk is only interested in the present and the future, not the past.

'I see us being stronger as well and that makes it a good game on Sunday'.
