Man City face Anfield test as they chase down the invincibles

Liverpool are set to welcome back Mohamed Salah, who has been passed fit to face Manchester City this weekend.

Guardiola led Manchester City to six wins and one draw in the month of December, with the only slip coming against Crystal Palace on New Year's Eve.

A move for the 29-year-old, who played under Guardiola at Barcelona, could not be completed on transfer deadline day in August and City were reported by The Guardian this week to have lodged a fresh £20million bid for a player who is out of contract in June.

"It is Anfield, that is another thing".

"Anelka got a late victor and the result cost Liverpool qualification for the Champions League".

"I know what it is like at Anfield for a game like this where probably not numerous home fans are expecting to win".

Liverpool are the only top side City are yet to beat away from home in the Sheikh Mansour era, and considering how competitive the Reds are, Pep Guardiola's side will have to muster all the quality they have.

The Premier League returns this weekend after an FA Cup hiatus with a heavyweight clash between Liverpool and Manchester City while Arsenal can not afford to be cut adrift in the race for Champions League places.

Although City were 1-0 up by that stage, Sergio Aguero's goal had come against the run of play and, in typical Liverpool style, was generous in the extreme. "But you know my answer. If you can get in-between the lines and at the two centre-halves, which I feel we can, then there are chances and goals there". All good things have to come to an end and with no midweek match Liverpool will be well prepared for English football's ultimate test. "That is what I want to speak about".

Guardiola's A$380 million spent on players at the start of this season appears to have solved his defensive woes - with Kyle Walker, Benjamin Mendy, Danilo and Ederson all arriving - ahead of the club's legitimate tilt on all four competitions. "It's about football, football, football on the pitch". That obviously changed the game and maybe for Man City the season. Liverpool's energetic play and pressing could be enough to topple City, who themselves have struggled against the press in recent weeks. City have lost 14 of their 20 meetings at Liverpool during the modern top-flight era, snatching their sole victory with a 2-1 win in May 2003 - when current City winger Leroy Sane was just seven years old. "When you look at their results, their form, the team they have got and the belief in the camp, it has got to be their best opportunity". This kind of game shows your mentality.
