Form Man City star backed to handle hostile Liverpool return

Mohamed Salah

It will be interesting to see how Jurgen Klopp adapts his tactics in Coutinho's absence, though.

Jay Rodriguez sprinted in behind a square back line to score for West Bromwich Albion this season, and later in the same match City defender Nicolas Otamendi made an error when put under pressure by Matt Phillips inside the six-yard box. Manchester United, Chelsea and Arsenal, on the other hand have relatively easier fixtures on hand.

The Egyptian star was also crowned the Premier League Player of the Month for November.

Manchester City have the knack of playing the same style of football, wherever they play and whoever they play. That stretch of results also includes a 4-0 demolition of Bournemouth and three gritty, hard-fought 2-1 wins.

Both games were supposedly tough games for Guardiola's side.

"It's the kind of game I love and for the fans it's something different", Salah told the official club website. The pair were instrumental in Leicester's 2015-16 title triumph alongside Jamie Vardy and Riyad Mahrez but have both since decamped to Stamford Bridge, where Kante became a title victor again last season.

"But my players will not need extra motivation or focus for this game, just because we play a side that is in a very good way".

Liverpool and Manchester City will face each other in a mouth-watering clash on Sunday while Saturday's showdown will be the exciting encounter between in-form Tottenham and Everton. City's current team are a world away from the team that won on Merseyside that day.

The 27-year-old feels Sunday's game versus Liverpool at Anfield could be a highlight of the season.

Liverpool could remain unbeaten in their opening 12 home matches of a Premier League season for the first time since 2011-12. It would be a major surprise if they dominate this game as much as their previous big away games.

Liverpool could go some way to reigniting the Premier League title chase with a victory over runaway leaders Manchester City at Anfield on Sunday.

This game promises to be a fantastic watch. "Maybe that is going to happen, and I am going to shake the hand of my opponents and congratulate them for being champions"'. Both teams will go for the win. What makes Liverpool finally able to really fight back against City though is Virgil Van Dijk.

"Jurgen Klopp is a master of the counter-attack, so they're a team who can arrive in the finishing area in three or four touches", he said.

The problem with playing that way for Liverpool is that they'll end up having to mark man for man and if you stack City's attacking talent up against Liverpool's rear-guard, unfortunately, there's only going to be one victor.

It is certainly an intriguing clash this one.

Which channel will air the Premier League match between Liverpool vs Manchester City?

Former Liverpool player, Raheem Sterling - presently City's top scorer in the league this season - can expect a hostile reaction from the home crowd again.
