The Reds are in great form having picked up 15 points from six games. They dropped points to newly-promoted Brentford in the Matchweek 6, drawing 3-3 in an intense battle in west London. But they recovered well with a 5-1 thumping of FC Porto in the Champions League on Tuesday and will head into Sunday’s fixture in high spirits.
Manchester City, on the other hand, sent a message to the remaining clubs in the division by beating Chelsea 1-0 at Stamford Bridge at the weekend. While they were beaten 2-0 away by Paris Saint-Germain in the Champions League, Pep Guardiola and co. will be visiting Merseyside in a buoyant mood.
Here are three battles to watch out for when Liverpool take on Manchester City.
