Manchester City are scared of Liverpool, and so they should be

Liverpool beat City three times in four meetings last season but Guardiola pointed out that his side had the last laugh by winning the Premier League.

'Sergio has scored a lot of goals but there were periods when he didn't score goals.

Then two teams had quite contrasting results this past midweek, however. "I see his teams playing and I know that is really exceptional". They've won all their games in the Premier League apart from one.

The Reds are due to take on City in one of the biggest games of the season so far, and the bookies are backing Salah to make an impact and Jurgen Klopp to get one over Pep Guardiola again.

It has worked wonders for Liverpool in the past and should Guardiola fail to find a solution, it could play in the home sides' hands.

The German goalkeeper, 26, will be in the Premier League starting line-up for the first time for Arsenal, who are on an impressive run of eight straight wins in all competitions. Michael's Prediction: "Liverpool 3-1 Manchester City".

While City are seeking to consolidate themselves as the dominant force in English football by becoming the first side in a decade to retain the title, Klopp's task is to end Liverpool's near three-decade wait to win the league.

However, when asked if De Bruyne was in with a chance of featuring against Liverpool, Guardiola remained coy.

Each side head into the encounter without a loss to their name in the league and will be looking to capitalise on an early opportunity to jump ahead of their rivals and head into the worldwide break with a bounce in their step.

Manchester United have scored just 10 goals in seven Premier League games and their blunt forward line faces a challenge to break down Rafael Benitez's defence-minded Newcastle at Old Trafford on Saturday. Most consecutive wins: 18.

The former Red Bull Salzburg midfielder's energy will form a huge part of Jurgen Klopp's game plan against the Citizens if he is fit and selected.

"It's a tough place to go; they were on fire last time we went, Salah was on fire, Mane and Firmino, and they've got some brilliant attacking players".

"I'm hoping this is the game of the season, with everyone at their best".
