Why Liverpool have best chance of ending Manchester City's unbeaten domestic run

Why Liverpool have best chance of ending Manchester City's unbeaten domestic run”

Van Dijk, though, says his price tag has little bearing on his commitment in training and on match days, telling Sky Sports: "It [his price tag] doesn't make me nervous, it's a big compliment to myself for the hard work I've put in so far, that Liverpool are willing to pay that much money".

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp: "It's interesting to play against City". A return by Sadio Mane to his form of last season is now a must.

"If you want to win titles, you have to win this kind of games", the Spaniard told a press conference yesterday.

"We are facing them in their best moment. But Liverpool vs City is so important to realise again, if we are able to do big things in this season". This season we have done that but we still have to go to Anfield and to Tottenham.

Earlier this week, Chelsea manager Antonio Conte admitted he was interested in Van Dijk prior to his move to Anfield, while Manchester City were long-stand admirers.

"But if you are not fearless in your game, you will also have a problem".

City will look to end their poor run at Anfield this weekend, with the Reds unbeaten against their rivals since 2003 on Merseyside. "You need to show up".

The last time Manchester City did a league double over Liverpool was in the 1936-37 season, a campaign in which they won their maiden top-flight title.

"They are playing at Anfield - I'm not expecting a team that will wait for what is happening - I'm pretty sure he will try and make his own game and I think it will be a good game".

Since losing to Tottenham on October 22, Liverpool are unbeaten in 17 matches in all competitions and 13 in the league, their best run under Jurgen Klopp. Just six have been conceded over a 10-game period but the majority of them have come during the latter stages of either half.

There could be some new faces around Eastlands before these two clash Sunday tea time, with City believed to be edging ever closer to a deal for Arsenal's Alexis Sánchez despite interest from Manchester United.

City, though, are enjoying a record season and defeated Liverpool 5-0 at the Etihad Stadium this season.

Probability of away win: 45%.
