Agent of Ivory Coast midfielder meets Manchester City over possible January transfer

The Reds, meanwhile, may have bagged 14 goals less than their upcoming opponents but still have five more than the third most lethal attack in the league, Manchester United.

The Reds, meanwhile, could use a measure of the certainty their guests will take to Anfield, what with last week's departure of star forward Philippe Coutinho for Barcelona.

Guardiola is expecting Liverpool to attack having encountered Jurgen Klopp's teams many times.

Pep Guardiola has transformed Manchester City from a team of great players into a great team.

Liverpool are 21/10 to win at Anfield.

City's defence have not been challenged like that this season.

Back BTTS at 2/5 or go against at 7/4.

City have not won in the Red half of Merseyside in the league for nearly 15 years.

Meantime, Man City's 15-point cushion on second-placed Man United has destroyed any value in EPL champions futures, as it's dropped to -10000.

Manchester City's record run of 18 consecutive Premier League wins was brought to a close by a resilient Palace side at Selhurst Park during matchweek 22. He'll be a set-piece threat when Manchester City come visiting.

"I am focused on the game against Liverpool".

Commenting on the kind of reception former Red Raheem Sterling would get from Liverpool fans, Guardiola said: "It's not the first time he's been back".

With our much loved Premier League celebrating its 25th Birthday this season we thought it would be the flawless time to look back at the best players to feature in each position over the last quarter century.

It was a remarkable December for Kane as he also broke Alan Shearer's calendar year record for Premier League goals taking his tally to 39 in 2017. The Dutchman, just signed from Southampton for £75 million, had a dream debut, scoring the victor in the Merseyside derby last weekend.

"Until the City game I think we were pretty much level".

He has the work-rate and tenacity to give Salah a run for his money, though there is no room for error in the boiling cauldron of atmosphere that will be Anfield on Sunday.

In fact, Le Parisien reveal that Pep Guardiola "commissioned" his transfer lackeys to meet with Seri's agent in Manchester last week.

January signing Virgil Van Dijk is certainly available for selection after he enjoyed a dream debut during the Merseyside derby against Everton, heading home the winning goal in the 84 minute of the FA Cup clash. Right back Nathaniel Clyne, goalkeeper Adam Bogdan, and left-back Alberto Moreno remain sidelined due to injuries, but otherwise the German boss should have a full complement of players at his disposal.

Gabriel Jesus could return ahead of schedule from his knee injury and make the first leg of Manchester City's Champions League tie with Basel next month.
