Manchester City travel to Liverpool on Sunday for the biggest game of the weekend at Anfield, and it is tough to call who might come out victorious.

Given they have not lost and drawn just two of their 22 Premier League games, remaining unbeaten domestically since August and opening up an unassailable lead at the top of the table, Pep Guardiola’s side will come into it as favourites.
They have Sergio Aguero firing and the man expected to win Player of the Year, Kevin de Bruyne, playing out of his skin. No team has been able to find a way to beat Guardiola’s men since Arsenal did in the FA Cup. Yet, they are still searching for their first win on the red half of the Mersey since 2003.
But the last team to beat City in the Premier League was Liverpool, in the final game of 2016. They are yet to show how they will bounce back from losing Philppe Coutinho to Barcelona, but Jurgen Klopp’s side have scored 16 goals in the last five games and have a great record against the ‘top six’ at Anfield.
Defensive issues have been improved by Virgil van Dijk, too; it may be hard to back City to lose to anyone right now, but Sunday’s game could well be the toughest they’ll face this season.
