Liverpool host Manchester City on Sunday afternoon looking to get revenge on Pep Guardiola’s men for the 5-0 hammering they were on the end of earlier on in the season. Jürgen Klopp‘s men will want revenge, and rightly so.
The Reds are currently on a 17-game unbeaten streak in all competitions, 14 shy of City’s undefeated streak in the English top flight which stands at 30 but it’s impressive nonetheless and their best run since 1996.
It’s not just three points up for grabs on Sunday though, it’s also a chance to be the first team to beat Guardiola’s side in the league. It’s the first game for The Reds since the departure of Philippe Coutinho but derby hero Virgil van Dijk could make his first start for the side against a club he turned down.
