Joey Barton: Manchester City can break unwanted record against Liverpool

Jesse Lingard

It clashes with the date of the League Cup final, which could also be a Man City-Arsenal showdown. Can the league leaders change that on Sunday?

While Bayern Munich may have pulled out ahead at the top of the Bundesliga (again) the battle for the other three Champions League spots is remarkably close. It's only in recent years, since the Abu Dhabi money came in, that City have improved. He is a little bit early but after that he should be ready. A very good manager.

They both took part in the session at a sunny Melwood on Wednesday as preparations step up for the visit of Manchester City on Sunday. But the Germany global believes that history presents an exciting opportunity for his team this weekend. That has been a big lift for us. "Anfield is one of the hardest stages in the world and on good days Liverpool are able to beat any team in the world".

Manchester City are without Gabriel Jesus who has damaged his knee and is expected to be out action for a month. "My favourite player is Michael Owen and I would like to play there".

After last week's FA Cup bonanza some teams came out of it a lot better than others.

Though while City suffered a defeat in the month of December to Shaktar Donetsk, their league record has been impeccable. "I'm 100 per cent confident", he said.

Few doubt Manchester City will go on to lift the Premier League title this season after an incredible first half of the campaign.

On emulating Arsenal, Gundogan added: "We are in a comfortable situation and enjoy being on top". "We have just brought in Virgil and what an wonderful addition he has been in the short time he has been here, he has brought that air of confidence and his persona". This season is special as we are winning and winning and winning. "We have everything we need to go and get the right result".

Given the attacking flair of Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino, there'll be plenty of Liverpool fans claiming Coutinho won't be missed, but the departure of the Reds' star player is sure to make an impact on the side.

This one's not just about points. I have every faith in the boys that we just move on now. Antonio Conte has prepared many a team to counter an attacking juggernaut to a successful degree, and he'll have his hands full with trying to do so for a second time this season. It's not that I don't want to inform you.

The defending champions won't be repeating, but that doesn't mean they can't have a say in the manner in which they concede the title. He will surely be a strong contender for Player of the Year at the end of the season.

"Honestly, I don't even regret it".

"The important thing is what happens in the 90 minutes on the field".

"I try to see it as an experience that I accept and take with me".
