Anfield has not been kind to City in recent memory, but history can be thrown out the window this season given how well City are playing – and not that they need them, but reinforcements could still be on the way.

For Liverpool this marks the start of the post-Philippe Coutinho era following the sale of the Brazilian to Barcelona, but even without his magic the Reds may be the only club in the Premier League who have the capability to beat City at their own game.

No fixture is a given in the Premier League, but a realistic look at Manchester City’s schedule shows there are very few legitimate threats to their unbeaten record remaining – and this may be the toughest of them all.

The Premier League’s highest-scoring clubs – a combine 114 goals in 44 matches – do battle at Anfield today, Liverpool aiming to solidify themselves in the top four, and Manchester City hoping to widen their lead at the summit to a staggering 18 points.
