Liverpool are set to host Champions Manchester City at Anfield on Sunday for an exciting top-of-the-table clash in the English Premier League.
The two powerhouses currently occupy first and second in the Premier League table after six matches, with Jurgen Klopp’s side one point above their title rivals at the summit.
Liverpool come into this game on the back of a 5-1 thrashing of FC Porto in their Champions League game on Tuesday night.

There have been many tasty ties at Anfield down the years between these two clubs – with City marching to a 4-1 success in the 2020-21 season – and Liverpool can only boast one win from their last seven against Guardiola’s side in all competitions, although that did come on Merseyside 3-1 in their triumphant 2019-20 season.
