Martin Keown states his prediction for Liverpool FC v Man City

Manchester City will be looking to cement their position at the top of the table with a positive result when they take on Liverpool at Anfield on Sunday afternoon.

City last visited Anfield in April for the first leg of a Champions League quarterfinal and that game was somewhat overshadowed by events prior to kick-off.

"The big question is whether Guardiola will adapt or continue with his philosophy of taking risks, playing between the lines and trying to beat the press". Look at the game at Manchester City - there was an offside goal, which was not offside, which could have changed the game, but we were really calm.

Guardiola's team selection is, as ever, much trickier to forecast.

Beating Manchester City could be "massive" for Liverpool's season after three games without a win, according to Trent Alexander-Arnold. Venturing into the Half-Time / Full-Time market therefore feels logical, and while you don't see this level of turnaround very often, I'm going to be bold and back Liverpool/Man City at [32.0].

The Reds bounced back from a 5-0 defeat at the hands of City at the start of last season to be seen as the Manchester side's kryptonite.

Guardiola signed the Frenchman for £52m from Monaco past year and the player has been a regular starter this season since returning from a long-term knee injury. Salah remains an excellent player and will score goals in the future.

The City boss said: "The best way to protect the bus is for the Liverpool fans to be as Liverpool fans supposedly are".

A win on Sunday would be massive for Liverpool both in terms of going back to the top of the Premier League as well as building confidence to carry through the global break and into the next run of fixtures. We beat them at home last season but at Anfield we weren't able to play well enough to beat them.

"You could feel the shock when we first scored".

Match of the Day pundit and former Liverpool midfielder is intrigued by today's game and wonders how City will respond to last season's three losses against the Reds. "We want to have battles with them, 100 per cent".
