Liverpool take on Manchester City in the Premier League clash of the weekend at Anfield on Sunday.

The game will be one of the most important in the league this season and could well play a major role in deciding the eventual title winner.

Liverpool are currently on top of the Premier League standings and are six points ahead of Pep Guardiola’s side.

A win for City could see them reduce the deficit to just three points while a win for Jurgen Klopp’s side could see them gain a major psychological advantage over last season’s champions

The Merseysiders enter the game in lethal form. Liverpool are currently unbeaten in 28 Premier League games and have won 19 out of the past 20.

Their only defeat in the league this year came against City in January.

Liverpool will go into the game as favourites.

Guardiola’s charges will also likely have to make do without the services of goalkeeper Ederson and David Silva, according to a report which was published by BBC Sport.

In more good news for Liverpool, Reds pair Jordan Henderson and Virgil van Dijk, who missed training earlier on during the week, are ready and able to play.

Joel Matip, Xherdan Shaqiri and Nathaniel Clyne all remain on the sidelines and are set to miss the game.

Liverpool have a good record against City at Anfield and have gone 16 games unbeaten against them at the Merseyside ground.

The Reds solitary home defeat against City in that run came back in May 2003.

City have however enjoyed more success over the Reds under Guardiola as they have lost just one out of the last five Premier League games between the sides.
