Salah to be fit for City clash

Martin Keown Premier League

GETTYMartin Keown says Liverpool can pose a threat to Manchester City even without Philippe Coutinho

The question now though, is what else can the Premier League leaders achieve en route to their first top flight triumph since 2014?

What do you see as the key reason behind such an astonishing run of form compared to last season?

Thirty-eight games with no loss - invincible (so far).

After a debut campaign of acclimatisation to English football, Guardiola has his side finely tuned and all singing beautifully from the same hymn sheet.

Yes, Man United have made some foolish mistakes recently and made simple games look hard, but this one has three points written all over it.

"He [Klopp] is letting Emre Can go at the end of the season".

The 107 cap England global started his career at Arsenal and was part of the famous Invincible side that went unbeaten on the way to the 2004 Premier League title. So that makes it more efficient and, overall, yes, they are like that, so everybody expects and projects that they will last.

"If nothing happens in this moment, Mo is back, he is training completely normally", Klopp said in the press conference ahead of the clash with City. He has improved a lot this season but in his absence, Robertson has impressed as well. There is a long, long way to go.

"We played there a few months ago", Klopp reflected. Questions remain about his suitability for this Liverpool team.

Can anybody stop Manchester City? We shouldn't be pretending this is the Bundesliga.

While Philippe Coutinho was unavailable the last time these sides faced off, Sunday's contest marks the dawn of a new era without him indefinitely. Even in midweek, when City looked lackluster against Bristol City, they still managed to produce a late victor.

For the first time since his departure, Liverpool are back in action and even more pressure will be placed on Mo Salah and Saido Mane to produce.

And no team has since. The bigger picture is Manchester City remain unbeaten and now own a 15-point advantage at the top. Does a Premier League classic await us?

While going strong in the Champions League.

"I think in two, three weeks hopefully for the Champions League game against Basel he could be fit". We can't compare, we just have to deal with the situation.

"It's interesting to play against City". Often forgotten amid the guile of Robert Pirès and the genius of Dennis Bergkamp is the solidity that the Invincibles were built on.

They've only kept two clean sheets at home this season. Overwhelming them with rampaging numbers.

"They're so good going forward". It's scintillating to watch but also lends itself to vulnerability on occasion. Then again, any such run needs a healthy serving of good fortune - think Ruud van Nistelrooy's last-minute penalty that cannoned off the bar, much to the glee of Martin Keown.

Whether it is relevant that Man City's last win at Anfield in 2003 is debatable, since City has become such a well-heeled club in the years since.

Saturday's late kick-off sees fifth place Tottenham Hotspur host Everton, looking for the three points which would, at least for twenty-four hours see them move level on points with fourth place Liverpool.

Sergio Aguero, Kevin De Bruyne, Gundogan, Sane will look to pick apart a Liverpool defence that has been bolstered by the January signing of Virgil Van Djik.

Former Liverpool midfielder Jason McAteer, too, believes City's centre backs could be their soft spot, telling the club's website: "We know Manchester City's quality. on their day, Liverpool can match anybody".
