Pep: Raheem can handle Anfield reception


Their first meeting: City rolled to a 5-0 rout at the Etihad, but the course of the game changed drastically on Mane's high boot to Man City goalkeeper Ederson, which saw the forward sent off and Liverpool go hopelessly down to 10 men.

This week, Sky Sports data journalist Adam Smith reveals the numbers behind City's dismal record at Anfield and how Liverpool could win on Sunday.

The Premier League returns this weekend after an FA Cup hiatus with a heavyweight clash between Liverpool and Manchester City while Arsenal can not afford to be cut adrift in the race for Champions League places.

Mohamed Salah is expected to return to action when Liverpool take on Manchester City on Sunday (14 January) but manager Jurgen Klopp has suggested that the visit of the Premier League leaders is still likely to come too early for Jordan Henderson, Alberto Moreno and Daniel Sturridge. This season we have done that but we still have to go to Anfield and to Tottenham. "The records are there to be broken".

China's trade surplus with the United States hit a record high in 2017
It will be hard to keep up double-digit trade growth this year given global uncertainties and a high comparison base, Huang said. However, imports surged 18.7% over the same period, bringing the trade surplus down to 2.87 trillion yuan ($442.3 billion).

"I know what it is like at Anfield for a game like this where probably not numerous home fans are expecting to win. But Liverpool vs City is so important to realise again, if we are able to do big things in this season".

"You can see yourself that the atmosphere at every home game is incredible". Since then, Klopp has witnessed his team play 18 matches with 11 wins and seven draws being registered during that period.

They will be hoping that the arrival of new defender, Virgil van Dijk will help stop Pep Guardiola's irresistible frontline. Not having Paul Pogba in the opening matchup of the season forced Mourinho's tactical hand, but provided Pogba is fit to play in April, we could well see a much different approach for the Red Devils. I haven't decided if he is ready.

"I understand completely this question, you make this question, but I am focused on Liverpool", he said. "I'm sorry, I am not going to answer about Alexis or other players".
