They will host the champions Manchester City at Anfield on Sunday afternoon in what could end up being a season-defining match. They have been somewhat unlucky given Liverpool's ability to scrape wins at the death but this is the ideal opportunity to stop the Reds in their tracks. City controlled the early portions of the match, and Bernardo Silva's pass in the box hit Alexander-Arnold's outstretched arm with City attacker Raheem Sterling running in behind.
Another win for Jurgen Klopp, who has beaten a team led by Pep Guardiola more times than any other manager (eight wins out of 17 meetings), would represent a monumental step for the Reds, who are unbeaten at home in the league since April 2017. The right back switched the ball to left back Andy Robertson, whose subsequent cross to Salah left the ball on a platter for the Egyptian striker's run.
The former Barcelona boss later proceeded to hail the quality of Liverpool and labelled them the strongest team in the world at this moment in time. It was a rotten game of football last time, but this is what tension does to the best of teams - City can not afford to lose it. Klopp responded by promising not to mention the "tactical fouls" City have been accused of making under Guardiola - while, of course, mentioning them.
