"It's full credit to the manager for what he's done for Liverpool". However, Liverpool has enjoyed dominance over the defending Premier League champions in the recent past and who will win the upcoming fixture is anybody's guess.

But come Sunday, they can count on the intangibles of Anfield on top of the talent of a bolstered squad and inspirational manager to keep City waiting for a win there and strike first blood in the title race.

City finished 25 points clear of Liverpool in the Premier League last season, but succumbed to a 5-1 aggregate defeat in the Champions League quarter-finals.

Walker admits that Sunday's opponents are their "bogey team" and he is aiming to end a winless run at Anfield that stretches back more than 15 years.

"The big question is whether Guardiola will adapt or continue with his philosophy of taking risks, playing between the lines and trying to beat the press". Andrew Robertson will likely be the left-back, with Trent Alexander-Arnold lining up on the opposite flank on the day he turns 20.

Finally, it's not often we feature the Radio Times in this round-up, so here is a snippet of Simon Barnes' preview of today's game.

Liverpool beat City three times in four meetings last season but Guardiola pointed out that his side had the last laugh by winning the Premier League.

In team news, Kevin De Bruyne could feature in the game which would be a huge boost for the Citizens.

Whereas Aguero became the highest-scoring overseas player in Premier League history with his strike against Cardiff, moving into the top 10 of the all-time standings.

"Yes, he had better teams, that is true, more experienced, Bayern, Barcelona, we don't have to talk about that".

"I have a really good relationship with Pep".

Guardiola's haul of silverware does dwarf that of Klopp - with 27 major trophies compared to the German's five - but the City boss has considerable respect for his Liverpool counterpart.
