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

Vincent Kompany has made eight Premier League appearances for Man City this season

"Obviously [it boosted us]", the 27-year-old told Standard Sport when asked about Tottenham's result on Saturday.

That would put the Reds ten points clear of the champions and they would have one hand on the Premier League trophy. The first game they were better than us, the second game I thought we were better than them.

Jurgen Klopp demanded his Liverpool players be "greedy and full of desire" as they look to make the biggest statement of the season in the campaign's defining game.

Despite a recent poor run of form from Manchester City that benefited Liverpool, they are a squad with world class players who can change the shape of a tie within moments. We have to be prepared as good as possible, we have to be courageous, full of desire, angry - all that stuff, like in all the other games.

Ilkay Gundogan believes that if Manchester City can contain Liverpool's dynamic attacking trio of Mohamed Salah, Roberto Firmino and Sadio Mane, they will win Thursday night's crunch clash between the two sides.

Consistent success is the mark of a truly great side and if City should reel in a Liverpool side seemingly hell bent on making history, that is a tag they will deserve.

His prowess seems to know no bounds, with effortless pace, power, poise and ability in every aspect of his game - all of which he will need to draw on to keep Aguero at bay.

The interior ministry confirmed the death of two of the tourists, and the state prosecutor's office later said a third had died. Prime Minister Mostafa Madbouly said the bus had "deviated" from a route secured by security services.

The Spaniard said: "I know today nobody trusts us".

When Manchester City and Liverpool last met in the Premier League, a fixture usually bulging with goals failed to live up to its billing as the most entertaining in English soccer.

"I can not imagine that what happened in the past is going to happen in the future", said Guardiola.

"I have a feeling everyone can beat us but also that we can beat everyone". The Bianconeri have accumulated 53 points from 17 wins, and have dropped points just twice - against Genoa and Atalanta - and have set a record for then highest tally gained in a calendar year.

The former England striker wrote in his Daily Mirror column: "Even if Liverpool were to beat Manchester City 5-0 at the Etihad".

"My only question of Liverpool would be how they play it". We know exactly which opponent we play, the respect we have.

A fifth factor being considered is who will get the left-back role in Benjamin Mendy's continued absence, and Guardiola sees right-footed Danilo as the best option tomorrow (8pm). "That's the situation, so we will see what we do with that".
