       A collection of the best goals scored when Liverpool face Manchester City in the Premier League

Neville's colleague at Sky Sports, Jamie Carragher, says that Liverpool can not afford to lose to City if they want to mount a serious title challenge.

Whilst City was comfortably beaten by Liverpool 3-0 away in the Champions League last season, Pep Guardiola's side has gone on a run of ten games without losing away from home in all competitions.

"Sitting back is not a solution against City", Klopp once said and he means that although, interestingly, Liverpool have been less full-throttle this season. As a player, you're looking to plant a seed in the opposition's heads that you're better than them in these big games.

The clubs are both unbeaten in the league this season and are in the top two positions in the table ahead of the Super Sunday clash, live on Sky Sports Premier League from 4.30pm.

Liverpool got the better of Man City over two legs last season in the Champions League and beat the Citizens at Anfield in the league.

"But we'll try again, knowing that they have a very good squad but we will go with 100 per cent, so we can try to get the three points". Out of the four games, they beat us three times.

Man City will also make a late assessment on Kevin De Bruyne after he returned to training last week following two months out with a knee ligament injury but the Belgian global may only be fit enough for the bench.


The Merseyside outfit have not yet lifted a trophy since Klopp was appointed at Anfield back in October 2015 - although they have been showing some significant signs of progress, as they ended up as runners-up in the Champions League to Real Madrid last season.

"We respect Manchester City for what they've achieved and the quality they have, but it's respect and not fear".

With Jordan Henderson likely to take his place in the midfield three, that energy and pressing will be lost to a deeper and more reserved player.

"Against Napoli the first 15 minutes was an open game with better opportunities for us".

The City striker is lethal in front of goal but he has struggled to make an impact at Anfield throughout his career having failed to score in any of his nine games, a record the towering van Dijk will hope to continue on Sunday. We have to go to Anfield and put that to bed.

"You have to be ready, you need a fantastic football team - which thank God I have - with outstanding character, ready to be really courageous, ready to make mistakes".
