Reasons Why Liverpool Will Beat Manchester City

De Bruyne We don’t care about poor Anfield record

Two years ago the England global was jeered and substituted at half-time during his first game back at Liverpool following his £49million move to Manchester City.

From a tactical perspective Liverpool have the tools to become the first Premier League side this season to beat Manchester City.

They do have a significant Anfield hoodoo to overcome, having last won at the famous Merseyside ground in May 2003, but the departure of influential playmaker Coutinho for £142million earlier this week might offer grounds for encouragement.

"There is no doubt about the quality of Coutinho", the former Camp Nou boss told reporters.

"I think Liverpool are playing like Liverpool were in the past, with all their history".

"Saying that, Liverpool have resources". Liverpool have conceded just 4 goals at home this season and they have a great recent record against the "top 6" so I fancy the Merseysiders to edge this one tomorrow.

"This season we were able to do that but we still have to go to Anfield, to Tottenham - there are still lots of games to play". City's form this season has been remarkable and if his team can maintain their consistency, they could soon start to match his Barcelona side in terms of achievement.

"That is not going to change my opinion about Liverpool on Sunday".

Have your say on who Guardiola should bring to the Etihad Stadium. The Reds attacking trio of Mohamed Salah, Roberto Firmino and Sadio Mane will cause any defence problems.

Manchester City's remarkable 18-match win streak came to a stunning end in a New Year's Eve road draw against Crystal Palace.

Klopp says Coutinho replacement needs to be correct player
Roberto is known for his flexibility and is fit for playing in the two positions which is something that Klopp is searching for. Brazilian Coutinho was unveiled as a Barcelona player on Monday, following his £145million move from Liverpool last weekend.

Who will come out on top between Van Dijk and Sergio Aguero? Liverpool boast an array of exciting attacking talent but Klopp will have to find a way of knitting it together in the absence of the departed Brazilian. We have studied their strengths and their weaknesses, as they will have done with us.

He's already their best defender and it wasn't just his ability and command in the air which impressed most with his penchant for passing out of the back putting Liverpool on the front foot.

"It's the basic essence of football - to excite people and make fans want to go to the game".

City, who lead the Premier League by a gaping 15 points, play the Swiss side in the first leg of their round-of-16 tie on February 13.

'He always liked me as player and I would be a liar if I said he didn't try.

Yet Guardiola and co. will know that Liverpool are well capable of puffing out their chests and achieving what would be a huge statement with three points.

"In sports everything can happen".

Graeme Le Saux gives his views on life after Coutinho and whether Man City can continue their unbeaten streak at Anfield on Sunday.

"It is simple like that". Pep Guardiola won't be focused on that record at this stage, but it will be at the centre of discussions for the media at the game.
