"It's very tough, probably the toughest away game of the season in the Premier League", admitted City midfielder Ilkay Gundogan, who worked under Klopp for four years at Borussia Dortmund.

The Citizens, meanwhile, have also only dropped two points so far this term and head into this weekend's game top of the table on goal difference, and level on points with Liverpool FC.

Aguero and van Dijk are key to both City and Liverpool's hopes on Sunday and they have each started their respective season in fine form, with the Argentina worldwide already with eight goal scoring contributions to his name and the Dutch defender with four clean sheets.

All three of Liverpool's midfielders - Jordan Henderson, Gini Wijnaldum and James Milner - are best suited to the pressing game rather than falling deep as they did against Napoli.

Navy ship built at Bath Iron Works almost struck by Chinese warship
Chinese ships often shadow USA vessels during freedom of navigation operations but those interactions are usually considered safe. The Chinese defence ministry says it opposes the U.S. warship's entry into the waters "around China's islands and reefs".

Pep Guardiola insists Liverpool's Mohamed Salah has lost none of his goal-scoring prowess, but the Manchester City boss claims the Egyptian must repeat last season's prodigious feats before he can match Sergio Aguero.

The Reds have started this season strongly and have only dropped two points in their opening seven Premier League games ahead of Sunday's showdown with Guardiola's Manchester City side at Anfield.

"The three guys in front connect really well and it's a top side".

"Now with Daniel Sturridge coming back and playing well, we've got to be careful of that too, but we have to play to our own gameplan, and not think too much about them".

A year ago, Man City went to Chelsea and won 1-0 with a wonderful goal from Kevin de Bruyne. Liverpool's defence has performed well this season, although space can open up in their right-back zone - Eden Hazard twice got in behind in that zone last week.

City's team bus was attacked outside the stadium when it last visited the ground for a Champions League tie in April, with windows smashed as it was hit by missiles. "Michael Stich was an outstanding tennis player, maybe better than Boris Becker, but he was not Boris Becker".

"We respect Manchester City for what they've achieved and the quality they have, but it's respect and not fear".

Even to date while watching the movie on our television screens, we love it when the veteran actor says the dialogue. Well, unless you're reading this internationally, because in that case you may be able to watch it tomorrow.
