Salah and Sturridge train ahead of Liverpool's clash with City

City have let in only 13 in the entire league season but they face a unique challenge.

"They're so good going forward".

Sadio Mane, Mohamed Salah and Roberto Firmino still combine to form a unsafe attacking trident, and the addition of big-money center back Virgil van Dijk should help Liverpool both in the back and on set pieces, where City could be more vulnerable.

City's last win at Anfield came courtesy of a Nicolas Anelka brace in May 2003, with four draws and 10 defeats since that result, including losses on each of its past four visits. 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. "We go there to win the game", he said.

"It wasn't a nice day earlier in the season and we must try. With Van Dijk they are even better".

Back in September, the Reds were ripped apart by the Citizens 5-0 at the Etihad Stadium but at Anfield, Klopp's men will hold stronger cards so it will be an intriguing battle.

Although the England global was more renowned for his defensive ability than his attacking play, many will still remember him for this thunderous last minute victor he struck against Chelsea in 1998. When I look at the fixtures they have left the trip to Anfield is their biggest test.

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

"The money they've got from Barcelona allows them to build a better and more cohesive team".

Captain Jordan Henderson could come back into the set-up, while Georginio Wijnaldum may retain his place in the three.

Liverpool have already made a major outlay in the transfer market, signing Virgil van Dijk from Southampton for a reported fee of £75million.

"The boys really do a lot in their rehab situation and, if we have time, we bring them a little bit later into team training so that they can do a little bit more specific physical work".

Next up on Tuesday is leader Manchester City, which hasn't lost any of its 26 games in domestic competition and, according to manager, will "etch itself in history as one of the greatest teams to have ever graced the pitches in England". I understand completely, but it is not the first time he's been back.

"The players have two choices: Follow what you (the media) say, or follow me". Hindering the no 17 is Liverpool's best chance of getting a foothold in the midfield and adopting their desired method of play. I don't make a decision if he is ready for that.

Back BTTS at 2/5 or go against at 7/4.

Barton however thinks the win City crave will still prove elusive.
