Jurgen Klopp reveals Liverpool are in talks with midfielder

Jurgen Klopp reveals Liverpool are in talks with midfielder”

Not matter how patchy Liverpool's form has been since the 1-0 defeat City suffered at Anfield, they are probably one of the last teams Pep Guardiola would have wanted to face this Sunday.

City go into the weekend third in the Premier League table, one point above fourth-place Liverpool with a game in hand.

"It is all about using the experience you have and when you think of experience I heard what Jose Mourinho said and what the pundits think about it", Klopp told United Kingdom newspapers.

Guardiola has built arguably the greatest attacking force now in the Premier League - with Kevin De Bruyne, David Silva, Leroy Sane, Raheem Sterling, Sergio Aguero, Gabriel Jesus and Nolito all top class offensive options - but his defensive unit is remarkably poor.

City were fiercely criticised after the Champions League last-16 tie against Monaco, which they lost on away goals as the French side brutally exposed their fragile defence in a 6-6 aggregate draw.

A dismal 3-1 defeat at Leicester City bridged impressive home wins over Tottenham and Arsenal and they laboured to a 2-1 home victory over Burnley in their most recent outing. Indeed, the Reds have won four consecutive league games against Man City for the first time since 1981. "I'm really looking forward to it". We played a few outstanding games, but we obviously get judged by the games where we are not very good.

Manchester City - Pep Guardiola has no fresh injury concerns ahead of the game.

He thought that City's changes "were really good" but praised how their Ligue 1 opponents "always had an answer", adding: "City have changed a few things, with [Raheem] Sterling playing more consistently on the wing and it's really good to watch, I have to say".

However, Savage has tipped a different outcome this time, predicting a win in the direction of the Manchester club, as cited by William Hill's official Twitter account.

"He has played almost the whole season so far, so if he has one week with more treatment than training and another week with light training for him, then yes, he would be completely OK".

They are unbeaten in the nine league games they have played to date against the other teams in the top six and have emerged victorious on five occasions.

"Now he is going to the national team to play more minutes".
