Anfield Hoodoo Haunts Manchester City In Top-Of-Table Clash Against Liverpool

The German is expecting another exciting match against Man City

Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola says they "shouldn't need the police to protect the bus" on their first return to Anfield since April's hostile Champions League tie against Liverpool, BBC Sport reports.

'Salah is younger, it was his first year back in England since his time at Chelsea, so we will see in the ¬future, but a guy who has the quality to score almost 50 goals in a season always has that quality, ' said Walker. "Of course, the Liverpool fans want him to play bad and he wants to play good, but I won't [leave him out] for that reason".

The mercurial Belgium global has been on the sidelines for the last month with a knee injury and was expected to spend another fortnight away from the action.

With Kevin De Bruyne unlikely to return straight to the starting lineup the onus will remain on the Spaniard to keep City ticking, and the former England global is likely to be given the task of stopping him.

"We will see on Saturday", the City boss told Sky Sports.

"In the Champions League, the first game we made a good performance except at the end of the first half".

Each side head into the encounter without a loss to their name in the league and will be looking to capitalise on an early opportunity to jump ahead of their rivals and head into the worldwide break with a bounce in their step.

"Most points: 100. Most goals scored: 106".

"Liverpool finished fourth last season but, unbeaten in six league games at the start of the season, they are already seen as City's mainrival for the Premier League title". Most consecutive wins: 18. 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.

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

As a player, you're looking to plant a seed in the opposition's heads that you're better than them in these big games.

"People said he has always had better teams than I had, but I would not even compare myself with him", Klopp continued.

"Now we will have three days together until we play City and make the boys aware of what was wrong". The Guinean midfielder stayed overnight in a Naples hospital after suffering a back spasm. "But that's no problem; if you work hard, you earn it".
