Big Match Focus: Liverpool v Manchester City

Manchester City captain Vincent Kompany has warned Liverpool they are not the only to team to have got better since last season. He has transformed them into a title contenders this season. he is also well known for his passionate celebrations at the touchline, his own philosophy for the game.

"That's not discarding Chelsea, Tottenham, Manchester United, Arsenal or whoever else is going to be up there, but we're both going into the game undefeated and hopefully we can come out on top".

Guardiola's teams can be hard to predict as he is never shy from a tactical innovation, but we expect him to go with a full-strength 4-1-4-1 here, his most common formation.

Klopp, though, thinks that tie showed Liverpool that they can not ever relax against Guardiola's men.

"Liverpool are one of the two greatest teams in England and that's why we tried to be close with them in terms of many, many things, and we are closer".

Klopp's side produced one of their best Champions League performances to seal a 3-0 win against the Citizens in the first leg of their quarter-final clash at Anfield in April.

Liverpool versus Manchester City at Anfield could provide a telling indication of which is more likely to go on and clinch the Premier League title this season.

He said: "After the game it felt much more clear they deserved to win than after the analysis". "I've said it a few times and I can say it again: I really think the most important thing, the most important job of football, is entertaining the people, because it is only football and nothing else".

"I do genuinely believe Liverpool have a chance to win the league, but the biggest obstacle is the potential tiredness of that front three".

Defender Walker added: "We're the champions and we have a point to prove".

"We've had a good season so far", he said.

'I have a really good relationship with Pep.

"Obviously we won the last three games against City". Then it can work.

"I think we will see that today from both teams". Each striker could write a book about these moments when you score without knowing how exactly it works, how you did it, with each ball in a ideal way and stuff like that.
