Manchester City star Kevin De Bruyne reveals 'love' of playing at Anfield

However, both are obviously expected to return to the lineup for the Manchester City game to combine with Mohamed Salah in the Liverpool frontline.

On winning the League on the final day, Kompany admitted he loved hearing about how things had suddenly gone sour at Anfield and that tears were flowing - rather than champagne.

Some have suggested the match is a must-win for City, it's worth remembering they were seven points behind Liverpool in January and went on to win the title.

It's a rivalry that has grown in the last few years as both sides tussle for supremacy as the top team in England.

Jurgen Klopp has an nearly full squad to choose from for Sunday's game, barring 2-3 first-team players. Klopp responded by promising not to mention the "tactical fouls" City have been accused of making under Guardiola - while, of course, mentioning them.

"When you see the statistics, I don't believe much in these sorts of things, but 38 years for one (win), it shows how hard it is at Anfield".

"As I say, the games that he's played in so far he's looked absolutely fine, but they are not always tested without the ball and I think Sunday they certainly will be". We're here to ensure that you don't.

"It is one of these games, after the miserable feeling of the last one, which will give everyone a "wow" moment".

Last season's games against Manchester City proved vital in the Premier League title race. "That's the only way I believe we can do it, not just at Anfield but all the stadiums around the world".

City seems to have put the shock defeats to Norwich and Wolverhampton Wanders behind them, winning five of their last six games in all competitions.

The two Premier League rivals will face off this weekend, with the Reds looking to increase their lead at the top of the Premier League table.

Another win for Jurgen Klopp, who has beaten a team led by Pep Guardiola more times than any other manager (eight wins out of 17 meetings), would represent a monumental step for the Reds, who are unbeaten at home in the league since April 2017.

"City will field two of Nicolas Otamendi, John Stones and Fernandinho in the centre of their defence and it will be hard for the visitors to keep Liverpool's front three and especially the hugely influential Sadio Mane at arm's length".

Although it is very early in the season a nine-point gap at the top would be very significant.
