Liverpool vs Manchester City 01/14/2018 Premier League Preview, Odds & Prediction

Virgil van Dijk

Thierry Henry believes Liverpool FC could be the Premier League team to finally end Manchester City's 22-game unbeaten run. In one of his first public statements, Henry made a clear allusion to City when discussing the challenge of keeping his new team financially competitive.

Pep Guardiola has challenged Sergio Aguero and Manchester City to banish their Anfield hoodoo when they face Liverpool on Sunday. The Dutchman, just signed from Southampton for £75 million, had a dream debut, scoring the winner in the Merseyside derby last weekend. Klopp is the dynamo.

The pair enjoyed a healthy rivalry as bosses of Borussia Dortmund and Bayern Munich, which took in the 2013 Champions League final, and has continued in England, adding an extra sub-plot as two of the Premier League's biggest sides meet.

There's also the Guardiola factor of course. Thus, their confidence will be low and they will probably find it hard to stop the likes of Kane, Christan Eriksen, Dele Alli and Heung Min Son. "It makes it a lot of fun to play with these players, to work with them".

"This season at Stamford Bridge we were able to do that but still we have to go to Anfield, to Emirates and against Tottenham".

Sane added: "That's how my game was all the time from when I was young, to fight one-on-one". Antonio Conte has prepared many a team to counter an attacking juggernaut to a successful degree, and he'll have his hands full with trying to do so for a second time this season.

"On Sunday, if there is a free kick from 18 yards or 20 yards and everybody in the stadium is thinking 'ah, Phil!' then.that would be quite, not too cool!" "You would obviously prefer to have that front with Coutinho as a No 10".

"I try to see it as an experience that I accept and take with me". The rivalry will grow but only if Klopp can land a blow on City.

"I you want to achieve something that is good and win titles you have to win on these kind of stages", he said.
