Liverpool host Manchester City at Anfield on Sunday in what has been billed as the biggest league game of the season so far.

Where to Watch Live

Kick-off is set for 1:37pm BST. Live coverage will be available on Sky Sports 1 and Sky Sports 1 HD.


Liverpool are currently top of the league table, four points ahead of Manchester City, having played two games more. A win here will take them seven points clear and make them favourites for the league title.

This is the closest Steven Gerrard has come to claiming his first league trophy in his illustrious career at Anfield, with the Reds having failed to win the domestic tournament in over 24 years.

Brendan Rodgers has done a great job with the resources available to him, with striker Luis Suarez the prime architect of their great season.

Suarez has scored 29 goals in the league and is also leading the charts in assists, a feat last accomplished by Thierry Henry during his time at Arsenal.

The emergence of the likes of Daniel Sturridge, Philippe Coutinho and Jordan Henderson, under the leadership of Gerrard, has had a galvanising effect on the team, as they look to beat the odds and book a place in Premier League history.

However, Manchester City are the bookies' current favourites to claim the league title this season.

The return of striker Sergio Aguero, who has missed a major part of the season through injury, could be significant for City. Alvaro Negredo's lack of form and Edin Dzeko's profligacy in front of goal has been a problem for Manuel Pellegrini, even though his side are still the second-highest scorers in the league, with six goals fewer than Liverpool from two fewer games.

Both teams know that a loss here will damage their chance of league glory but a draw would suit Manchester City, who will then be able to overtake the Reds at the top - if they win their games in hand.

What the Managers Say

Brendan Rodgers: "Look at each individual player, looking at the players within our system, within our structure here at the academy and the club, looking at the senior players, how we can find ways to extend their careers to make them better players, and it's a model we're happy with and a model we feel will give us that sustainable success over a longer period. I won't disrespect what they've done because of where they were at - they've a lot of new money that's come into the club in order to gain success. And that money they've invested wisely in a lot of top players. In these recent couple of years it has won them the Premier League and the FA Cup, and the League Cup, so I'm sure their supporters won't be complaining."

Manuel Pellegrini: "It will be a very emotional day but the team that has the cold mind will win the game. It is easy in these big games to have the motivation but it is very important to manage the anxiety. With an excess of anxiety you can make more mistakes. It will be decided by one or two goals. So it's very important to have control of your minds in these moments."
