The City boss said: "The best way to protect the bus is for the Liverpool fans to be as Liverpool fans supposedly are".

It's early days in the Premier League but people can see Liverpool are contenders, just like we are, for the Premier League title with the money they've spent, the squad they've got and also the manager they've got.

"In the first Champions League game [against Liverpool FC last season] we made a good performance except at the end of the first half".

Gary Neville reckons that fatigue in Liverpool's outstanding front three of Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino could potentially stop Jurgen Klopp's side winning the Premier League this season.

Liverpool versus Manchester City always appeared likely to be this season's title rivalry, and seven games into the campaign, the two sides are joint-top of the Premier League: both played seven, won six, drawn one.

'For the moment, we have the most points of any English team in the Champions League, and it is a big responsibility for us to maintain that in our next group match against the super team, Juventus. We beat them at home last season but at Anfield we weren't able to play well enough to beat them.

After being overlooked earlier in the season Sane has returned to the fold with instant impact having scored one and created three more across all competitions. Liverpool's defence has performed well this season, although space can open up in their right-back zone - Eden Hazard twice got in behind in that zone last week.

Kupp also caught a 70-yard TD pass in the second quarter, finishing with the first multi-touchdown game of his two-year career. Their first drive of the second half ended when Hekker's pass out of punt formation fell incomplete in the end zone.

Kevin De Bruyne could return from injury at Anfield and Walker admits a few of the Manchester City players have struggled for fitness after the World Cup.

And Sky Sports pundit Neville says that he thinks it was a mistake to play all three forwards for nearly the full game against Napoli.

He said: "Obviously we won the last three games against City".

"Now we will have three days together until we play City and make the boys aware of what was wrong". Look at the game at Manchester City - there was an offside goal, which was not offside, which could have changed the game, but we were really calm.

City's all-time goalscorer Aguero has 111 top-flight goals [148] more than Salah [37], who hopes to outshine the former Atletico Madrid striker at Anfield on Sunday.

"You have to be ready, you need a fantastic football team - which thank God I have - with outstanding character, ready to be really fearless, ready to make mistakes".
