Michael Owen states his prediction for Man City v Liverpool FC

  • Six a Side- Manchester City v Liverpool

"It's the most attractive game of the Premier League, so we want to perform well", Gundogan told SID.

Manchester City are the team who has scored the most number of goals but their defense looked a bit shaky and gave away goals in the past months which is why their goal difference is below Liverpool's.

Pep Guardiola has confirmed that Kevin De Bruyne is "much better" after missing Manchester City's victory over Southampton with a muscle problem.

"With the position of Liverpool, if we drop points then it is over, it is finished; it would be nearly impossible", said Guardiola after Sunday's 3-1 win at Southampton. "Everybody asks what we are going to do if we lose, but we are going to try to make our game and to win it".

Now it's different as Liverpool leads second-placed Tottenham by six points and City by seven. Benjamin Mendy is still out injured, Fabian Delph is suspended, and Oleksandr Zinchenko endured a hard game against Southampton.

"Our pride has been hurt over recent weeks but we have everything to play for".

Klopp added: "I heard [Guardiola's comments]".

"We are very excited because it's a very interesting, difficult, game we have to play". It seems logical that he'll return to 4-3-3 here, with Naby Keita or Jordan Henderson returning alongside Fabinho and Georginio Wijnaldum, with James Milner expected to miss out through injury. The midfielders they work a lot, they press a lot.

The Reds remain unbeaten this season and have won each of their last nine league games, whereas City have lost three of their last five outings - as many defeats as they suffered in their previous 70.

When Manchester City and Liverpool last met in the Premier League, a fixture usually bulging with goals failed to live up to its billing as the most entertaining in English soccer.

Roberto Firmino hit a hattrick against Arsenal while Sadio Mane's movement from the left was terrific.

There is little doubt that Liverpool's trip to face reigning champions Manchester City on Thursday is the biggest match of the Premier League season so far.

However, Guardiola will not let his City side gift Liverpool three points as they look to reduce the deficit between the teams, and he will be desperate to see his side defend their Premier League crown.

Speaking ahead of Liverpool's win against Arsenal, Klopp said: "Milly is Milly, that means he is again ahead of schedule". It's the third of January, it's a very important game for both teams and I would use it as motivation for the other team'.
