Anfield Hoodoo Haunts Manchester City In Top-Of-Table Clash Against Liverpool

  • Manchester City will keep their route into Anfield a secret this weekend reports

Gary Neville reckons that fatigue in Liverpool's outstanding front three of Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino could potentially stop Jurgen Klopp's side winning the Premier League this season. But, as has always been the case with our team, we win together and lose together and we all take equal responsibility for it. City managed to come from behind and find a late victor at Hoffenheim to record a 2-1 victory, while Liverpool were hit by a late victor in Napoli losing the game 1-0.

"The Brazilian players at City and Liverpool have a good relationship and we meet-up whenever we can", said Ederson. "You could see Napoli used the atmosphere and we couldn't calm it down with our performance", said Klopp after defeat in Italy on Wednesday.

The Reds have started this season strongly and have only dropped two points in their opening seven Premier League games ahead of Sunday's showdown with Guardiola's Manchester City side at Anfield.

"Liverpool should be upset not myself", he said.

The Reds went down 1-0 to the Serie A side in their second Champions League group match at the San Paolo after failing to register a single shot on target in the contest.

Messi Brace And Rakitic Rocket Lift Barca Over Spurs
In recent weeks there have been murmurs that Barcelona have been struggling after three games without a win in La Liga. The lead was short-lived, though, and Messi restored Barca's two-goal lead within five minutes.

With Kevin De Bruyne unlikely to return straight to the starting lineup the onus will remain on the Spaniard to keep City ticking, and the former England global is likely to be given the task of stopping him. We're playing the best team in England and arguably one of the best teams in Europe and the world right now. Klopp does. Like Guardiola, he is a risk-taker.

'An option is to stay back for 90 minutes, wait and defend as best as possible, and hope God can help us from above.

The Reds are winless in their last three games in all competitions, and there is a little bit of worry regarding the form of their attackers who have so often looked unstoppable. After none of these games you go into the dressing room and think, "Now we know how to beat Manchester City", because there is no real way, no one thing that you have to do. Then it can work.

"I have a really good relationship with Pep".

Klopp was waiting to learn whether midfielder Naby Keita would be available after suffering a back spasm in Naples while forward Adam Lallana is back in full training following a groin problem.
