Rodgers is routinely dismissed as some kind of novelty figure, despite the fact he's performed an excellent job at three consecutive clubs: guiding Swansea to promotion, taking Liverpool to within a whisker of the Premier League, then steering Celtic to a historic unbeaten season. Having five attack-minded players works for Guardiola but his team dominate possession to such an extent that you sometimes feel they could play with no defenders and still not concede, simply because the opponent often cannot get out of their own half.

The Dutchman became the world's most expensive defender after completing a January 1 move from Southampton to the Reds, where he has already hit the ground running after scoring the victor in the FA Cup clash against bitter rivals Everton. They now sit an incredible 15 points clear.

As for Man City, Pep Guardiola nearly lost their first match of the season recently during a 0-0 draw at Crystal Palace.

Salah has been Liverpool's outstanding player this season.

While City have been irresistible at times this season, this is a strong Liverpool side - strengthened by the addition of Virgil van Dijk in defence.

According to PhysioRoom, the likes of Salah, Sturridge, Moreno and Henderson (major doubt) could be fit to face Manchester City on 14th January.

However, given Pep's record of league titles, three each with Barcelona and Bayern Munich, it's no secret that the Premier League remains his main priority.

Nonetheless, both the players have reportedly returned from the injury and are now training with the first team, which means the duo might be available to face Manchester City. It's worth noting that this game could very well be postponed.

English football's most unsolvable problem, stopping Man City, has brought a range of answers from the original to the derivative, the typical to the out-of-character, the partial successes to the outright failures, resulting in the damage-limitation exercises to the damaging defeats.

Their first meeting: City eased to a 3-1 home win, though Alexandre Lacazette's 65th-minute goal pulled Arsenal within one before Gabriel Jesus secured the points.

"They would grind out results, grind out results", Quinn said of Arsenal.

Any team willing to press and attack City have found success, and they have found the net. "But the City game is a completely different game". Old Trafford we were able.

"It will be interesting to see what the atmosphere is like and what difference that makes to both teams".

Victory over City on Sunday would barely affect the visitor's title hopes, but it would be a massive boost for Jurgen Klopp's team in the sideshow of finishing in the top four.

Liverpool stand as the top ball retrievers in 2017/18, winning the ball back in the middle third 628 times - 42 times more than closest rivals in this area Southampton.

"It was a special day and one I remember really well", he said.

City's style of play could also prove telling down the line.
