League leaders Liverpool welcome Premier League champions Manchester City to Anfield in probably the biggest game of world football on Sunday afternoon.

While the Reds go into this game six points clear of the Cityzens at the top of the table, they are yet to play their best football. Sunday won’t be a bad day to bring it out, as that would be required if they are to beat Pep Guardiola’s men.

The corresponding fixture last season was the first time both teams showed massive respect to each other and it ended up being a conservative goalless draw.

Expect a more open game this time around, knowing that City might have to win tomorrow to inject more pace into their title challenge. For Liverpool, it should be a case for not losing this game and keeping the lead to at least six points by the end of the day.

In terms of team news, Jurgen Klopp has confirmed that Joel Matip and Xherdan Shaqiri remain out, while Jordan Henderson and Virgil van Dijk are fit to play.
