Liverpool are better than last season, says Silva

Pep Guardiola during the Champions League match against Hoffenheim

Gary Neville reckons that fatigue in Liverpool's outstanding front three of Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino could potentially stop Jurgen Klopp's side winning the Premier League this season.

While Jurgen Klopp's men have enjoyed a fabulous start to the campaign, Salah has yet to fire on all cylinders.

Napoli's pressing didn't allow the front three any time on the ball and they should expect much of the same against City, so they'll have to get rid of the ball much quicker and play more of those little passing triangles they manage to pull off so well.

Whilst Henderson has his own assets, having the presence of Keita's high press could be the factor that unsettles the City defence just enough to earn the full three points. Pep's teams are best in that and I can admit that easily because it's so obvious.

"I feel probably whoever wins at the weekend is going to get the bragging rights for being the bookies' favourite to go and lift the Premier League".

"Sergio has scored a lot of goals but there were periods when he didn't score goals".

"They were throwing stuff, it was something out of our control but, for me, it was motivation and we have to take it as a pat on the back".

"In the last one we were chasing the Champions League so things can be a bit different, but we haven't won there in a good number of years, so we need to make history and hopefully we can do that this Sunday".

Midfield: Fernandinho is certain to keep his place in the holding midfield role but we should see one change in the middle of the park as Ilkay Gundogan is a major doubt after being forced off with a hamstring injury in midweek.

"If you asked anyone they would say it was not done".

"Against Napoli the first 15 minutes was an open game with better opportunities for us". He has transformed them into a title contenders this season. he is also well known for his passionate celebrations at the touchline, his own philosophy for the game.

That is the view of Danny Murphy, who has given his view on the Egyptian talisman ahead of his former club's clash against Manchester City.

He said: "Obviously we won the last three games against City".
