We take a look at this weekend's big Premier League match between Liverpool and Manchester City, live on Sky Sports. Plus we have all the match facts, head to head stats and TV channel details for this top-of-the-table clash from Anfield.
By WherestheMatch Team
Manchester City are looking for a 10th straight Premier League win and Liverpool are looking to avoid a third successive home league defeat at Anfield this Sunday.
Pep Guardiola's City have been steamrolling through opponents this last few months and we are seeing the kind of form that has brought silverware to the Etihad - Liverpool, on the other hand, have seen some wayward performances and some uncharacteristic results (W3 D3 L3 in the last 9 PL matches) and have put the defence of their title in jeopardy.
A loss for Jurgen Klopp's men would see them go 10 points behind City - the head to head form guide however, has only seen Man City return one win in the previous 18 visits to Anfield.
Two defeats at the hands of Burnley and Brighton and a failure to score at Anfield is a real concern for the Champions, especially as City have kept a clean sheet in eight of their last nine-match winning stretch.
Liverpool will be wanting to continue their good run form against Man City at home, with 2003 being the last time City beat them at Anfield with a Nicolas Anelka brace.
Man City have former Reds favourite Raheem Sterling looking to increase his goal tally of 7 Premier League goals this season.
City have another famous former Red in the ranks now in Raheem Sterling and we expect them to extend Liverpool’s miserable home run by winning on Sunday.
