Liverpool vs Manchester City 14 January 2018: EPL Preview and Predictions

They play fantastic football but, for me, I just think about my team.

City's visit will provide evidence of whether Liverpool can cope without Philippe Coutinho following the Brazil forward's sale to Barcelona.

Back in September, the Reds were ripped apart by the Citizens 5-0 at the Etihad Stadium but at Anfield, Klopp's men will hold stronger cards so it will be an intriguing battle.

"We all know how they played against Chelsea, they just bossed the game".

New defender Virgil van Dijk could make his Premier League debut after slamming home a header to win the game for the Reds against the Toffies.

"I like that, because more than a manager, I'm a fan".

Ian Wright is backing Liverpool FC to look to exploit Manchester City's weakness in the Premier League clash at Anfield on Sunday.

The Reds will be playing their first match since losing Philippe Coutinho to Barcelona but Jurgen Klopp insists they still have enough firepower to cope without the Brazilian global during the second half of the season.

The 25 goals they have conceded is their lowest in the last six seasons at this stage.

Liverpool's top scorer Mohamed Salah was also the subject of praise from Henry, as he added "I said at the beginning of the season he can be the new Coutinho - obviously I did not know that Coutinho was going to leave. With Van Dijk they are even better".

"He was convinced he wanted to go, so in the second half of the season we couldn't have used him".

Former Arsenal striker Wright is tipping Liverpool to cause Manchester City plenty of problems at Anfield on Sunday afternoon. City haven't won at Anfield since 2003, although you've got to remember what City were like back then, they're not the team they are now that's for sure. They are only looking at more reinforcements to further strengthen the team.
