Jurgen Klopp says Liverpool have earned Manchester City's respect

Liverpool currently enjoy a seven-point lead over Manchester City

Those will likely be Klopp's tactics again, with Liverpool defender Andrew Robertson acknowledging City will "go full throttle into us".

He wrote in his Liverpool Echo column: "This is the best Liverpool team since the title-winning side I played in back in 1987/88".

Wijnaldum, in particular, has been one of the unsung heroes for Liverpool this season, often springing his way into the half spaces to ease up his side's transition game. City will be setting up to try and thwart the swift counter attacking of Liverpool and will try to limit the impact of Salah on the right of their attack playing against our makeshift left back.

"Of course if we win we will have more confidence, we will be happier than if we lose". Both men are committed to exhilarating football, of slightly varying methods, and the strength of their teams arguably make this the biggest fixture in the English game at present.

The champions would fall 10 points behind Jurgen Klopp's leaders if the Reds win Thursday's eagerly-anticipated encounter at the Etihad Stadium.

Liverpool is now enjoying an unbeaten season under Jurgen Klopp and maintaining an impressive nine points lead over the second place Tottenham at the end of the year 2018.

Klopp's style, so similar in many ways to Guardiola's, clearly works as his kryptonite, and it accounted for City's Champions League hopes last season as they lost home and away to Liverpool in the quarter-finals.

For all their squad depth it is the one position in which they are wholly dependent on the 33-year-old, with an array of other midfield talent unable to play that role to the same standard.

Kader Khan designed courses in Islamic studies; Amitabh Bachchan pays tribute
Khan was suffering from a protracted illness and had been admitted to a hospital in Toronto a few months ago. Later, in films like Parvarish , Lootmaar and Qurbani among others, he would establish himself as a villain.

He is also useful when it comes to pressing the opponent while Naby Keita is a dynamic midfielder, whose quick-footed movements and excellent control over the ball, will cause problems for any midfield in the world.

Here you will find all the latest videos from Manchester City, including, all Premier League goals, highlights, behind-the-scenes footage, training and much more. So predicting a starting XI for what is our most important game of the season so far is fraught with difficulty.

While both teams will need to be on top of their games across the field, here are three pivotal areas which could see the game swing in either Liverpool or Manchester City's favour.

"This season we could have beaten them, we could have won there, we missed a penalty at the end of the game".

"We are very excited because it's a very interesting, difficult, game we have to play".

Pulisic had been linked with a switch to rejoin Klopp at Liverpool in the past but will see out the rest of the season in Germany before moving to Stamford Bridge in the summer.

"But one team has been better, we have to congratulate them". I'm always looking forward to these games. Good signing for Chelsea but good deal as well, Dortmund can keep him.
