"We have to play our best game".

Ahead of the match, Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has showered heaps of praise on Manchester City winger Raheem Sterling, saying he is an "outstanding" player.

Guardiola also faces a selection dilemma with Ederson being an injury doubt following his withdrawal at half-time in the 1-1 draw against Atalanta.

Roberto Firmino has described Liverpool's meeting with Manchester City as a game worth six points due to the ramifications the outcome could have on the Premier League title race.

Bravo was sent off late in the game, forcing City to play defender Kyle Walker in goal for the final 10 minutes, but Guardiola said he trusted the experienced Chilean to deliver in the top-of-the-table clash. "He's no longer in a position to play", said Metropolis supervisor Pep Guardiola at his pre-match press convention. Claudio Bravo can do it too, we won the Carabao Cup and FA Cup thanks to Claudio. "I see him every day in training and how good a goalkeeper he is, we're not going to lose because of Claudio". The guys who sell the hot dogs has to be in top shape.

Liverpool and City played out a goalless draw at Anfield last season and though some questioned Guardiola for City's defensive mindset, he said it was a effect of adapting to Liverpool's strategy.

"I don't think we have to compare with Man City", said Klopp.

"He's buzzing. Sometimes he jokes in training about playing in goal but obviously he will have been shaking a little bit", the Belgium global said.

"(The fact) we can give him the opportunity to come back to watch a really big game - and he wants to do that - for me, coming from a low point, is one of my highlights since I've been here.

"We know that this will be a busy operation and we hope that fans attending the match will act as ambassadors for their clubs".

"But everything is on a plate and no one hides anything, we can not only be offensive but you have to be fearless against Manchester City - even for a point".

"If you lose, you know there is going to be a big gap, but we have to take it as it is, compete, and see what happens". There is not one where anyone said "You can lose that".

"It will be more hard [if City lose], of course".

"Last season we had a great experience, an nearly ideal season", Alisson told The Guardian in an interview. "And he did it - in three or four years he built something marvellous to watch".

Giggs, a 13-time Premier League victor, said: "I'm going to say they wouldn't have beaten our United team, aren't I?"
