Could Liverpool be the side to end City's unbeaten season?

Manchester City are also said to be interested, but Arsenal are favourites to complete the signing of the former Manchester United man.

City's visit will provide evidence of whether Liverpool can cope without Philippe Coutinho following the Brazil forward's sale to Barcelona. Everything seemed finally to be aligning under manager Jürgen Klopp, and a positive result against the league leaders would further illuminate the good work he and the rest of his players have been doing in recent weeks. An attacking approach could favour City but if Liverpool find their mojo there could be an upset.

That trio is more than capable of ensuring its team's offensive threat remains among the most unsafe in the English top flight. Depriving their back four of even more of the already scant midfield protection they get probably wouldn't have ended well, but the hope from supporters is that by adding Virgil Van Dijk to the defence and employing a more workmanlike midfield without Coutinho, Liverpool will be able to cut down on the amount of goals they are conceding, certainly away from home. "It's a big game for us and we are going to plan as much as possible", Guardiola said in his press conference on Friday.

"And then we had the red card that obviously changed the game".

Reverting to a 4-3-3 formation for the most part this season, City have relied on a relentless pressing system to suffocate their opponents off the ball.

To his point, City had laboured to an opening-day win at Brighton, drawn at home to Everton and edged Bournemouth 2-1, before blowing out 10-man Liverpool. He is a little bit early but after that he should be ready. They haven't looked back since. They now sit an incredible 15 points clear.

Top flight football will make its return to screens worldwide this coming weekend, following a busy few days of domestic cup action.

After being left on the sidelines last season by Jurgen Klopp, Moreno fought his way back into the German's plans and has been in fine form this season - even if Andy Robertson has been hugely impressive in his place in the last month. They'll nearly certainly win the league in record time, and maybe even in March.

Man City's bid to win a quadruple of titles is still on track, with the team also through to the knockout stage of the Champions League.

"They have two choices - follow what you [journalists] said or follow me".

Second-placed Manchester United host Stoke City on Monday, the visitors without a coach after sacking Mark Hughes following their FA Cup defeat by League Two Coventry City.
