Citizens Enter Red Territory

Liverpool vs Man City : A game that pits two of the country’s exciting teams against each other- teams that thrive on exhilarating football.

Having lost two of their last three games, with the defeats coming in different competitions, the Reds will look to bounce back and hit their strides.

Their next game sees table-toppers Man City visit Anfield, who have won their last four league games.

Although Liverpool have yet to reach their best form this season, Vincent Kompany is aware of the task at hand, knowing the magnitude of their encounter will be massive.

“It’s a big game. Both teams are at the top of the league at the moment,” he told Sky Sports.

“It’s too early to be defining but it certainly has the feeling that a lot more is at play than the three points.”

Red Kryptonite

Though it is only October, the match could prove to be a tone setter for both teams for the remainder for the season.

Since Sheikh Mansour’s acquisition of the club, they have won at every away ground that has been trodden by Citizen feet- Except Anfield.

The consensus is that Liverpool are Man City’s Kryptonite; A substance that upsets and renders them impotent. The situation could also be seen as the equivalent of what a job application is to a lazy, insipid person.

The Citizens may have the riches, glamour and world-class stars that comes with possessing vast riches, but against Liverpool, they face a side that has beaten them in their last three encounters in all competitions- four if you include the pre-season victory.

They have succumbed to the wrath of Anfield, losing their last five games and not registering a victory at the famous cathedral since 2003.

Come Sunday, the two ‘horses’ that everyone is betting on to outpace the rest of the stable will engage in battle, and a fiery exchange of epic proportions will unfold.
