Guardiola and Kane win December Premier League awards

Guardiola and Kane win December Premier League awards

City have looked imperious and even though the mood at Anfield is somewhat boring after Philippe Coutinho's sale to Barcelona, expect the Reds to be competitive and threaten City's unbeaten run in the League.

Guardiola's side are still unbeaten after 22 league games this season with 20 wins and two draws. The French worldwide joined United in 2006 from Monaco for £5.5 million, and despite having a nightmare on his debut against Liverpool he would go onto become one of Sir Alex Ferguson's most trusted lieutenants.

This is not to say it's all about the psychological, since Klopp's pressing approach has been proven to repeatedly work against Guardiola's.

"If you want to win titles you have to win these kind of games".

"This season at Stamford Bridge we were able to do that but still we have to go to Anfield, to Emirates and against Tottenham".

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

Manchester United are also speculated to hold an interest but Guardiola was keen to remain focused on events on the field, with City facing a trip to a ground where they last won in May 2003.

"The records are there to be broken and maybe, on Sunday, Sergio will break that record". Sadio Mane, Mohamed Salah and Roberto Firmino still combine to form a risky 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.

"Jurgen is a guy who always tries to play on the front foot, with no fear".

"I think in two or three weeks, for the Champions League game against Basel he could be ready". Bristol City (who scored as an indirect result of closing down Eliaquim Mangala), Palace, Liverpool, Burnley (who performed better than 3-0 and 4-1 scorelines indicate) and Tottenham tried to close down City's defenders and stop attacks at their source.

"The Everton game showed he can adapt to the job", said Klopp. "They play really good and if you don't respect that, you have a problem", Klopp said.

But managerial legacies are about more than mere results, and Ball should be commended for being one of the few managers in the mid-1990s to embrace flair players.

Accompanied by a picture of the two players in Liverpool shirts with arms around each other, the message said: "Liverpool is no longer the same without the magical bro, I wish the infinite success for you, that you enjoy life". Coutinho didn't win a single trophy during his five years at Liverpool or three years with Inter Milan.

The Reds head into the game looking to become the first team to beat the Citizens this season after their incredible start to the new campaign in the top flight.
