Liverpool vs. Manchester City: Premier League – Match Preview

Liverpool will look to end Manchester City’s hopes of an unbeaten Premier League campaign when the pair meet at Anfield on Sunday.

Liverpool progressed in the FA Cup against their local rivals Everton last time out, with Virgil van Dijk scoring a debut winner.

The Reds may have brought the Dutch defender in, however Philippe Coutinho has departed for Barcelona.

Manchester City hold a narrow advantage going into the second leg of their Capital One Cup semi-final with Bristol City after Sergio Aguero’s late winner at the Etihad.

Aguero was also among the goals in the FA Cup, as City rallied from a goal down to thrash Burnley 4-1.
