Champions-elect tag not for me, says City boss Pep

Mahrez Aubameyang

"When I think about the game on Sunday, I can not forget the first we played against them", he added. Bristol City adopted a similar strategy in midweek and Lee Johnson's reward for being adventurous at the Etihad Stadium was forced errors out of Eliaquim Mangala and John Stones, which contributed to the Championship side's opening goal.

Former Arsenal defender Keown believes Manchester City will face their biggest stumbling block in their potential unbeaten season at Anfield in the Premier League on Sunday.

Both teams have looked far more impressive going forward than at the back this season, which points to plenty of excitement at Anfield on Sunday.

He said: "In football and in sport, anything can happen". They are a team who, with three or four touches they arrive in the finishing area.

"He did a good job at [Borussia] Dortmund - I met him when he was there". "I never spoke with the players, saying we need to win seven, eight or nine games to be champion or you have to drop so many games to not be champion".

"When we lose the ball in risky positions we have to control Salah and Mane because they are so fast, so quick and so clever in the box".

"Of course, (Philippe) Coutinho's not there, in the middle, with the talent that he has, but (Georginio) Wijnaldum and Emre Can are, and (Adam) Lallana's come back".

Stoke City were ready to consider a move, but they are now unwilling to make such a large investment until they have a new manager in place following the sacking of Mark Hughes.

However, that doesn't mean that they aren't carrying a handful of players that - no offence intended - are lucky to still be able to pull on the famous red shirt of Liverpool.

With Daniel Sturridge likely to leave Anfield in January after playing a bit-part role this season, fans are split over the club's steep demands for the English striker.

Liverpool FC are 18 points behind the runaway leaders but are in a good position to secure successive top-four finishes in the Premier League. Aguero has always loved scoring against Liverpool and if Van Dijk can keep him quiet, Liverpool will be halfway towards taking a result from this game.

Indeed, a succession of muscular problems has limited the England global to just 30 Premier League starts since the start of the 2014-15 season, in which he has scored 17 goals.
