5 bold Premier League predictions: Van Dijk leads Liverpool to victory


He is reacting to a question which suggests Liverpool's opponents are unconquerable.

City's visit will provide evidence of whether Liverpool can cope without Philippe Coutinho following the Brazil forward's sale to Barcelona.

City's 5-0 win over Liverpool in September was the first time they had scored five or more goals in a game against the Reds since March 1937.

Liverpool are unbeaten in 16 games in all competitions and next up, they will collide against high flying Manchester City, who are unbeaten in the league this season. That doesn't mean roadblocks are not in its path, and with the target on City getting bigger and bigger as the season goes on, the pressure will be that much greater to keep that 0 in the L column. That's what I've felt from the moment I came here. "I think it will be a good game", Guardiola added.

"We lost plenty of players at Dortmund".

"We know we can beat City". Victory over the Potters made it seven points from a possible 12 over the Christmas period and another win against lowly Swansea tomorrow would leave the Magpies in the heady heights of mid-table.

While Moreno himself was experiencing a rich vein of form before his unlucky injury, it wouldn't make sense for Andy Robertson to make way for the Spaniard given that he has been in superb knick in the last month, helping the Reds win some crucial games.

Sergio Aguero, Kevin De Bruyne, Gundogan, Sane will look to pick apart a Liverpool defence that has been bolstered by the January signing of Virgil Van Djik. "When they all played it left them exposed", he said.

"Having that gap also gives us confidence". That has been a big lift for us.

The Reds are on an unbeaten run of their own, avoiding defeat in their last 17 games, and sit in fourth. "They play really good and if you don't respect that, you have a problem", Klopp said. Everyone has to do what they have to do around it. I would not like my players to listen, see me on TV or read in the newspaper that the manager is talking about another thing which is not important.

Arsenal's 49 games in 2003-2004 is now top, followed by Nottingham Forest's 42 in 1977-1978, Chelsea with 40 in 2004-2005, Leeds's 34 in 1968-1969 and Liverpool's 31 in 1987-1988. Asked if winning four trophies was feasible, Gundogan took a cautious approach.

"The emergence of (Mohamed) Salah, that signing's been unbelievable".

After last week's FA Cup bonanza some teams came out of it a lot better than others. I have every faith in the boys that we just move on now.

"In a football way, I think we should try to clarify something". He will surely be a strong contender for Player of the Year at the end of the season. Now 24, he sees himself as an attacking midfielder who is best suited in a central area.
