Liverpool suffered their second defeat in all competitions this season after losing to Napoli in the Champions League in the midweek. But will not be let down ahead of top of the table showdown with Man City at Anfield on Sunday.
City currently tops the table on same point as Liverpool but with a massive 6 goals difference ahead of the Red Kops. Liverpool started well this season, racking up a straight five game win before dropping points to Chelsea at Stamford Bridge last week,
Liverpool had a mixed experience against Man City last season, losing 5-0 in the first leg but went ahead to beat them in the second leg and knock them out of Champions League quarter final. Mo Salah who had exceptional outing last season has failed to live up to the hype created last season due to his inconsistency in form but the manager is not letting this affect the team as they prepare for Man City.
Players to watch: All three of Mohamed Salah’s PL goals have come at Anfield, while Sergio Agüero has already notched five goals for City.
Stat attack: The last ten PL H2Hs at Anfield have seen the home side completely dominate before the break with 12 goals to three.
Liverpool last lost a PL match at Anfield back in April 2017, and have since recorded 16 wins and eight draws – with 17 clean sheets!
Both teams like to score early, and have walked off with a lead at half-time in 79% of their matches (cumulatively) this season.
