Liverpool vs Manchester City

Van Dijk not daunted by huge transfer fee

Now those clubs will be watching Anfield closely this weekend, not publicly admitting City are beyond reach but privately hoping they'll beat their closest, more logical rivals. Chelsea will be at home this week as they host Leicester City in the league on Saturday, and then next Wednesday in the second leg of their FA Cup tie.

The Germany global has been in stunning form for Pep Guardiola's side this season, helping them win 20 of their 22 Premier League games and opening up a 15 point lead over Manchester United in the process.

Sergio Aguero has scored in all six home league matches he has played against Liverpool, but he is yet to score at Anfield.

Virgil van Dijk made a dream debut after scoring a late victor against the Toffees and the Dutch global is fully expected to keep his place this weekend. "But the City game is a completely different game".

The victor of this battle on the pitch could well decide the victor of the match. "With Van Dijk they are even better".

Liverpool have to make a sort of fresh start to their team building as Brazilian star Philippe Coutinho has completed his inevitable move to Barcelona.

Attack: Mohamed Salah has handed Liverpool a major boost as he's been declared fit and available for selection after recovering from a groin injury that's kept him out of the last two games. In the Premier League, Chelsea come off a dramatic 2-2 draw at Arsenal, with the Gunners' equalizing goal by Héctor Bellerín coming in stoppage time. Nathaniel Clyne remains sidelined.

The visitor's will travel to Merseyside without Gabriel Jesus and Phil Foden who are both now on the treatment table. Club captain Vincent Kompany is also sidelined for the champions elect with a calf strain, while full-back Benjamin Mendy is out till April with an ACL injury.

David Silva has been in Spain this week tending to personal issues, but it is likely he will be able to play some part in the game.

Probable Lineup (4-3-3): Ederson; Walker, Stones, Otamendi, Delph; De Bruyne, Fernandinho.

Liverpool's early season trip to Manchester City was marred by a red card that saw the visitors capitulate.

The Blues have returned winless in last three matches in all competitions. The two are also looking to solidify their own respective places in the league, with three points vital.

City put Liverpool to the sword in September when these two sides last met, romping to a 5-0 victory at the Etihad.

Any team willing to press and attack City have found success, and they have found the net.

"It changed the season for City in a positive way and gave us a little knock for a few days and weeks".

City can never be counted out, however, and their sheer quality will be a real threat to the Reds.

When is Liverpool vs Manchester City in the English Premier League?

"What's important is what happens over 90 minutes on the field", he added.
