Liverpool v Man City

This fixture has produced some of the best football the Premier League has ever seen.

This fixture has also produced some Champions League classics down the years.

Liverpool v Man City, Jürgen Klopp v Pep Guardiola. It is always a treat.

There is a lot riding on this game, a win for the Reds would help close the gap on the rampant Citizens, anything else is the final nail in the coffin of the title race.

City have a big absentee in Kevin De Bruyne but the Reds are without a host of world class players as Klopp continues to deal with the worst injury crisis in the division’s history.

Emile Heskey prediction

The eyes of the footballing world will be on Anfield this afternoon.

An ex-Red has been telling us how excited he is for the game, speaking exclusively to Rousing the Kop, Emile Heskey gave his prediction for Liverpool v Man City.

When asked who the visitors’ dangerman is, Heskey told us:

“Raheem is Raheem, Sterling is Sterling. He hasn’t had his great games at Anfield but does that change? Raheem with no fans it might be different.”

We pressed the Kop icon for a score prediction and he went pretty conservative:

“I’d be happy with a draw, a 1-1. I don’t want to say 2-2 because I don’t want us conceding too many goals.”

What RTK has to say

A draw is no good for Liverpool but at least it spares us the blushes of a third consecutive Anfield defeat.

Hopefully the Reds will come up with the goods at the right time.

This really could be a major turning point in the title race, we just need to step up to the plate.
