Premier League 2018/19: 3 teams who can stop Liverpool's unbeaten run

Premier League 2018/19: 3 teams who can stop Liverpool's unbeaten run

The Reds are now seven points ahead of the Cityzens going into this game, however, the win for the latter could cut the gap and ramp up the pressure in this year's title race.

Liverpool head to reigning champions Manchester City on Thursday knowing victory will increase the gap between themselves and Pep Guardiola's side to 10 points.

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp looks on during the Premier League match between Newcastle United and Liverpool at St. James Park on October 1, 2017 in Newcastle upon Tyne, England. However, an unfortunate groin injury at the start of last month has had a great impact on his overall performance as the Argentine has scored only one goal in his last four league games.

The Reds go into the meeting with a seven-point lead over their title rivals at the top of the Premier League. "We'll see what happens in the future".

If we can play the way we know we can play, we can beat anyone, Sterling said. "Sometimes if you prepare a football game, watching two or three games of the opponent, you still have no clue what they are doing".

The Reds are unbeaten and looking strong, as City were when they held a 15-point advantage at the same stage previous year.

David Silva was also a welcome return for Guardiola as City go into the clash with an nearly fully fit side, while Kevin De Bruyne is set to undergo a late fitness test on the morning of the match.

Trump Says 'Big Progress' Is Being Made On Trade Deal
Beijing so far has pledged to resume buying US soybeans and to at least temporarily lower retaliatory tariffs on USA autos. It was unclear who initiated the call between Trump and Xi.

Last January, it was City who were on course to equal Arsenal's "Invincibles" of 2003-04 until they went to Anfield in January and were blown away by a three-goal salvo in nine second-half minutes to lose 4-3 despite a late rally. Pep Guardiola's famous "Centurions" are not far below Liverpool as they are just 7 points behind them. That's why I said to the guys at half-time, "learn from Zinchenko today guys".

"If we want to grow like a club, like an organisation and like a team, we have to face these kind of games with the pressure that means".

What caused the recent wobble of three losses in four Premier League games?

"We can beat them".

But Guardiola is said to have identified where his players can hurt Liverpool in their crunch showdown. "That is why in this season it is [important to] maintain form and [remain] there for as long as possible". I don't play against Jurgen or Jurgen against me.

Pep Guardiola has devised a plan to win the return fixture and stop the risky attacking trio of Liverpool from threat their goals and carrying the game away from the citizens, according to the reports in English media.

"That's why we have the amount of points, that's why we had the results". City will be setting up to try and thwart the swift counter attacking of Liverpool and will try to limit the impact of Salah on the right of their attack playing against our makeshift left back. Our teams play. He beats me, I beat him.
