Manchester City are hoping to regain their position at the top of the Premier League when they face Liverpool on Sunday.
Pep Guardiola’s side defeated Chelsea last weekend in an impressive performance but currently trail Jurgen Klopp’s in-form side by a point in the early stages of the campaign.
City lost momentum during the week, suffering a 2-0 defeat against PSG, while Liverpool boosted their confidence further, as Curtis Jones inspired a five-goal thrashing of Porto.
Klopp is braced for a far tighter test against the champions, though. “I don’t think now it makes too much sense to think too much about how many goals we can score against them,” he said. “We need a complex and complete performance against them to have a chance only and that’s it. But I’m really looking forward to it, I’m looking forward to playing at home again after a while.”
Here is everything you need to know:
When is it?
The match will kick-off at 4.30pm on Sunday, 4 October at Anfield.

Liverpool 2-2 Manchester City.
