Michael Owen states his prediction for Man City v Liverpool FC

Guardiola worries over De Bruyne: Not sure if he can play

"But tomorrow we need another check in the morning, but he is much better".

Firstly, this is not a post for Liverpool fans - it's for the supporters of Manchester United, Everton, Tottenham, and the roughly 5,300 other clubs in England's footballing system.

'We are going to try to make our game, to be there and be fighting for the Premier League for as far as possible'. If we would be 10 points behind then would my first thing after the game be to say: 'We still will catch them!' Of course not.

"It's Manchester City and you need to respect them, especially with what they achieved a year ago", Lovren added.

Ahead of the meeting, Liverpool total 54 points after 20 games with a goal difference of +20, with City now in third, seven points behind on 47 with a goal difference of +38.

"It's a very good team", Silva said.

They have a chance to finish 15-0, which hasn't been done at the top level of college football since Penn went 15-0 in 1897. The question now, of course, is what Murray (and his coach, Lincoln Riley ) will decide to do in the coming weeks.

"The performance was excellent, we looked aggressive in retrieving the ball", he told City's website. "Every living soul that comes into the stadium on Thursday has to be ready to fight and give it to them", added the Belgian.

Liverpool dominate the defence having conceded only eight goals all season, with that form largely down to the influence of Virgil van Dijk. Both men are committed to exhilarating football, of slightly varying methods, and the strength of their teams arguably make this the biggest fixture in the English game at present.

Pep Guardiola views Manchester City's crunch clash with Liverpool exclusively as an opportunity to revive their Premier League title defence.

Guardiola, not Klopp, has been the one tinkering with tactics heading into their matchups. If we have a full squad, all players available, then the preparation is a joy. In October, he reined in his fullbacks and kept the central midfield compact and close to his wingers. Les Parisiens have also played just 17 games and have 47 points, well on course to break the century by the end of the season and would now push Liverpool down to second.

"We are going to focus on what we have to do to win the game". Liverpool is seeking its first top-flight title since 1990, and its 19th overall.

The litmus test of Liverpool's title credentials will be on display when they face defending champions Manchester City away at the Etihad on Thursday night, in one of the most anticipated Premier League games in recent history. It seems logical that he'll return to 4-3-3 here, with Naby Keita or Jordan Henderson returning alongside Fabinho and Georginio Wijnaldum, with James Milner expected to miss out through injury.
