Their Premier League record reads played 22, won 20.

The Reds are on an unbeaten run of their own, avoiding defeat in their last 17 games, and sit in fourth.

Mohamed Salah returned to training this week after sitting out the club's past two fixtures with a groin niggle.


Liverpool have been boosted heading into their match against league leaders Manchester City on Sunday with coach Jurgen Klopp confirming top scorer Mo Salah is fit. City narrowly escaped Crystal Palace with a 0-0 draw, whilst late goals saved them against West Ham and Southampton.

City are keen to bring Arsenal forward Alexis Sanchez to the Etihad Stadium, but now face competition from rivals Manchester United, who according to Sky in Italy are willing to offer both Arsenal and the player more money. Guardiola will not change his approach to the game - City will play the same way and go on the attack. Kane has hinted that Spurs will need to match his ambitions if they wish to hang on to him. "I had a little glimpse of the goalkeeper just out of position and I wanted to direct it back across goal". "We want to start winning trophies so that's the aim". "I'm 100 per cent confident", he said. Certainly when you look at the teams they compete with on a week to week basis, it's a competitive league.

For City, Sunday's match offers the chance to rubber-stamp their billing as Premier League title favourites and head into the match on the back of successive cup wins, having seen off Burnley in the FA Cup before shooting down Bristol City in the Carabao Cup semi-final first leg on Tuesday. This season we have done that but we still have to go to Anfield and to Tottenham. "He's more mature, and of course he has to be calm and play the game he has to play". Either way, this is a Liverpool side who are capable of scoring goals in quick succession and it can be the difference between another game without defeat for City and losing for the first time in the Premier League since April 5. "He is a top lad, the most down-to-earth person you will meet".
