"Yes, with the record we had in December, we had a good moment and we have a very, very, very good football team".

Manchester City centre-back Vincent Kompany has challenged his team mates to "pull everything out of the locker" for Thursday's crucial game against Liverpool. And on all but four occasions in Premier League history, the side who were leading at Christmas suffered a downturn in form and lower average points per match thereafter.

After a breathtaking start to the current 2018/19 Premier League season, Liverpool will look to extend their unbeaten run in the league as long as possible.

Liverpool have established themselves as the benchmark and victory at the Etihad for Klopp's team will see them keep their unbeaten record intact and give them a 10-point lead over their title rivals.

"Everybody has been asking what will happen if we lose".

If we can play the way we know we can play, we can beat anyone, Sterling said.

Merson continued: "If Liverpool lose the game, it's majorly game on because it's about how they react after, too, and they wouldn't be invincible any more, they wouldn't be quite as good as they thought they were".

City fans won't write off the season entirely if they don't pick up three points on Thursday - they've seen the team recover from worse positions in the past - but it's impossible to deny that the task will be a tough one. But the pressure is certainly on City more than Liverpool and Guardiola's approach will be interesting. Pep stated Liverpool "maybe the best team in the world" after Liverpool game against Southampton. Of course, they can beat us but, of course, we can beat them. Although being invincible is still a pipe dream, Jurgen Klopp will hope to win the Premier League title without any mishaps.

"Over the past 30 years, we've had some great teams but none of them have played consistently at the level we're seeing from Juergen Klopp's side this season. They're unsafe, I mean it". After, we analyse, and three days later the FA Cup, then EFL Cup, then Wolves, and at the end of the season we'll see.

However, they put their shock defeats to Crystal Palace and Leicester behind them in fine style at St Mary's and Aguero feels they must focus on their own strengths rather than Liverpool's threat.

Guardiola, speaking at his pre-match press conference on Wednesday, said: "He trained today but tomorrow we need another check in the morning - but he is much better".

Pep Guardiola has devised a plan to win the return fixture and stop the unsafe attacking trio of Liverpool from threat their goals and carrying the game away from the citizens, according to the reports in English media. But because of a lot of things we don't control we lost that game.
