Liverpool v Manchester City | Match Preview | English Premier League
Time: 11:30 ET | 18:30 Cairo Local Time
Referee: Michael Oliver (England)
Liverpool v Manchester City on Sunday is set to be a massive game. This game could have a big effect on the English game. A Liverpool win would put the Merseysiderâ€™s nine points clear of the reigning champions, which would be a huge gap to bridge considering that Liverpool have won ten of their 11 league games this season.
Alisson said Liverpool wanted to avoid a repeat of last season as he talked up the significance of Sundayâ€™s clash against Manchester City.
Pep Guardiolaâ€™s Premier League champions head to Anfield trailing Liverpool by six points through 11 games this campaign.
City claimed the title last season, finishing a point clear of Liverpool despite Jurgen Kloppâ€™s men losing just one game.
Alisson said Liverpool had no interest in experiencing that again, eager to go one better in 2019-20.
â€śWe donâ€™t want to feel how we felt last season,â€ť the goalkeeper told The Guardian.
â€śBeing second by just one point â€“ and we donâ€™t know which game made us lose the title because we had a few draws where we could have done better, and we had the loss away to Man City when we could have won or drawn â€“ means we know that we need to give everything in every game if we want to become Premier League champions.
â€śWe want it and we will try to do it.â€ť
Liverpool have won 10 of their opening 11 Premier League games, drawing one, to open up an early lead at the top.
Pep Guardiola has called on Merseyside police to ensure there is no repeat of the 2018 attack on Manchester Cityâ€™s bus when they face off with Liverpool at Anfield on Sunday.
Cityâ€™s bus was damaged when making its way to the ground for the first leg of a Champions League quarter-final tie against the Reds, which Liverpool won 3-0.
This week, a poster circulated on social media in which fans were encouraged to â€śgreetâ€ť Cityâ€™s coach ahead of the top-of-the-table Premier League clash.
And Guardiola urged police to make sure his team arrive without incident.
