Mauricio Pochettino's men are in fourth spot on 15 points, just four behind Manchester City and Liverpool, and will fancy their chances at Wembley against lowly Cardiff.

Liverpool beat City 4-3 at Anfield in the league last season to end the visitors' unbeaten run in the top flight in 2017-18, which had stood at 22 matches.

Does Klopp have the upper hand over Guardiola? Sergio has scored a lot of goals, but there were periods when he didn't score.

This time around, the ball is in Guardiola's court in terms of tactics.

"They are a top side even if we win, the way they play".

City also have a awful record at Anfield, losing 12 of their last 17 visits with their last victory in 2003. Van Dijk appears to be fully fit despite recently struggling with a rib injury, while Robertson continues to overlap well.

Trent Alexander-Arnold has had a good start to the season with Liverpool, but at times his youth has got the better of him.


Liverpool FC followed up their home success with a 2-1 win at The Etihad, coming from behind thanks to goals from Roberto Firmino and Mohamed Salah. The Reds registered three wins over the Citizens during the 2017/18 season.

Two wingers, or two strikers?

Meanwhile, Give Me Sport, (via The Mirror), have Kyle Walker comparing the many merits of Mo Salah and Sergio Aguero... Venturing into the Half-Time / Full-Time market therefore feels logical, and while you don't see this level of turnaround very often, I'm going to be bold and back Liverpool/Man City at [32.0].

"But as a player there is not much more that you can achieve than playing these type of games, because when you play them or when the atmosphere is like that, you know it's a big thing".

Tottenham return to Premier League action after their Champions League hopes were severely dented by an inspired Lionel Messi in midweek.

'Salah is younger, it was his first year back in England since his time at Chelsea, so we will see in the ¬future, but a guy who has the quality to score almost 50 goals in a season always has that quality, ' said Walker. Both the sides have won seven and drawn one in their last 8 league matches.
