Liverpool pose test of City's bid for immortality

Guardiola's side are still unbeaten after 22 league games this season with 20 wins and two draws.

Barring an epic collapse, City will spend the rest of the season focused on the historic implications of their remarkable campaign.

Liverpool are the only top side City are yet to beat away from home in the Sheikh Mansour era, and considering how competitive the Reds are, Pep Guardiola's side will have to muster all the quality they have.

"If you want to win titles you have to win these kind of games". We look at the stats behind the key battle at Anfield. Which brings us to today, when those jittery Gooners have multiplied and sit stone-faced through all games at the Etihad, petrified that their precious achievement might be duplicated - to remain unbeaten over the course of a league season.

Leicester City went on a nice run last month with a four-game winning streak that included a big win over Tottenham, but the club has cooled off since with a 1-3-1 record over its last five league matches.

Becoming England's third top-flight "invincibles" isn't the only milestone fuelling City's charge.

How will Liverpool's new-look defence fare against Man City?

Liverpool replied through Ronnie Whelan but Kevin Reeves then capitalised on a mistake from Reds goalkeeper Bruce Grobbelaar to make the game safe.

While Pep Guardiola's men continued their dominance in both the FA and EFL Cups, recording comfortable wins over Burnley and Bristol City, they will be looking to reinforce their league title ambitions on Sunday afternoon.

As with Ferguson, and pretty much every top-six manager right now given their pedigree, a figure like Klopp won't take this lightly.

Ball controversially decamped to Manchester City, where his first signing was Georgi Kinkladze - arguably the single most technically gifted footballer in the Premier League at that stage. Liverpool fans will be hoping to see the likes of Salah step up to fill the void left by Philippe Coutinho.

Mohamed Salah has missed the last two games due to a groin injury.

By this point, Alexis Sanchez could be playing for a team in Manchester (not necessarily City!), though, and from a pure talent standpoint, Arsenal simply doesn't hold a candle to City.

Numerous worst efforts - Watford, when losing 6-0, Stoke, when going down 7-2, and Manchester United when flattered by a 2-1 scoreline after fielding four attack-minded players but with two of them appearing auxiliary full-backs as they struggled to get attacking possession - involved using the division's default formation in recent years, a 4-2-3-1.

"But if you are not fearless in your game, you will also have a problem".

You need only complete two Squad Building Challenges, where you trade in 12 players from your club, to be rewarded with two packs, and Kane's card.
