City are way off Premier League leaders Chelsea despite a recent upturn in results and were dumped out of the Champions League in the last 16 by Monaco in midweek. Wijnaldum has netted in his last two league games and could help Liverpool claim all three points. "That game showed me and I am even more convinced what I want to do".

Liverpool might be confident of a good display against City as the Reds have always been in stupendous form when they play against a top side, though their form against smaller teams has been a problem.

Third place Manchester City host fourth place Liverpool at the Etihad Stadium this afternoon (4.30pm kick-off) as both sides look to consolidate their places in the Premier League's top four. Interestingly, it doesn't really affect both teams' chances of qualifying for the Champions League because they seem very likely to finish in the Top Four, but it's a big game because it's about showing who's the boss. "We are a long way from the top in the league and we are out of the FA Cup too".

Liverpool finished eighth in the Premier League and without a trophy last season.

The threat of economic protectionism and border taxes from the White House have anxious countries that rely on the USA for trade. Canada, like China a major trade partner of the USA , took a nuanced approach.

Aguero has scored 10+ goals in all six of his Premier League seasons.

Liverpool are unbeaten in their nine games against sides now in the top six of the Premier League table this season (W5 D4 L0). "My job is to make it more likely".

"I think Guardiola himself would have expected that". While I wouldn't say it's a must win for Pep, it's certainly a "must not lose" for Liverpool. I thought it was our first ugly game we have won. I think that's what we've seen all season essentially.

"He has played almost the whole season so far so if he has one week with more treatment than training and another week with light training for him, then yes, he would be completely okay". "We are not used to it yet, so it feels a bit unusual".
