Man City must pull everything out of the locker against Liverpool - Kompany

Five things we learned from the Premier League this weekend

Five things we learned from the Premier League this weekend

The Reds travel to the Etihad on Thursday to protect their seven-point lead at the top of the Premier League table after a manic December fixture schedule handed a huge advantage to the Reds.

The two sides played each other four times last season, with Liverpool ending City's 22-match unbeaten start before knocking them out of the Champions League in the quarterfinals.

"Look, they're a fantastic team, a very experienced team and they've been in this position before".

The last time Liverpool visited the Etihad they sent Guardiola's men crashing out of the Champions League with a 1-2 victory after thrashing the Citizens 3-0 a week earlier.

"But of course you have the past two games, against Crystal Palace and Leicester, and you have that sense, because there are two teams there now who are better than us in the last month".

Arsenal legend Martin Keown believes the left-back position will be a cause of concern for Manchester City when they host Liverpool on Thursday. That's the only goal that we have. With three minutes to go in regulation, Karius sliced down Harry Kane in the penalty area, but the ensuing spot-kick by Kane was right down the middle and Karius stood firm to keep it out.

"I can not answer if he will be available for Thursday".

The last time they met, back on October 7, it finished 0-0 - and that scoreline doesn't do justice to just how poor a game it was. McGarry said on the Transfer Window podcast: "I'm told that City have enquired to Atletico Madrid about Thomas Partey, who, for me, is one of the most exciting and most effective holding midfielders in European football at this moment in time".

"To beat them you are going to have to score twice, which is a tall order". Then you go to Southampton, they're settling for a draw and end up winning the game, go to Liverpool and it was same-old, same-old.

"If they let this one go, wow, Liverpool man".

"But Tottenham [in third] will be looking to capitalise as well because we both play each other, so both of us can't pick up full points". Obviously everyone came around us and it looked like we were fighting or something but we weren't.

But Klopp insists he will be instructing his players to continue what they have been doing all season and won't be thinking about the points gap. But we take it game by game.

The heavy loss at Anfield brought back memories of Arsene Wenger's tenure at the club when we'd regularly be on the receiving end of big defeats to our rivals away from home in recent years.
