Steven Gerrard says Liverpool v Manchester City not to be missed

Steven Gerrard says Liverpool v Manchester City not to be missed”

Man City take on Liverpool at Anfield this Sunday, with the victor getting the chance to move to the top of the Premier League.

Liverpool beat City 4-3 in a EPL thriller in January before enjoying a 3-0 win in the first leg of their Champions League quarter-final at Anfield.

"Sometimes you have to trust the statistics and they are pointing strongly to Liverpool defeating Manchester City on Sunday", he told Betfair.

In those three games their possession stats were far higher than against Manchester City as the table below shows.

And as part of the precautions taken by the current Premier League champions, they will be taking a different route to Anfield on Sunday. The best way to protect the bus is down to the Liverpool fans who are there.

"A lot of times it was really close that it could be good but there was no real ideal decision".

He said: "After the game it felt much more clear they deserved to win than after the analysis. He's training with us, yeah". We defended in a lot of moments really good. Yes they had more chances, we didn't have a shot on target.

"These kind of games we have to be ourselves", he added.

Klopp says the losing feel can help his team focus on the challenge of beating City.

"But that would mean I forget completely how we played three days before against Chelsea, so we have to stay cool".

"You have to be ready, you need a fantastic football team - which I have, thank God - with an outstanding character, ready for being fearless, ready for making mistakes against an outstanding opponent".

"We need to be at 100 per cent, if not 110 to deal with the quality of City".

But from my memory of winning the league myself with Liverpool, that does not matter - you just try to win games, regardless of how well you are playing. If you work hard, you earn it, you deserve it, and that's what we try to do mixed up with very good football, that's the plan.
