Liverpool vs. Manchester City: Get ready for the Premier League’s biggest game the season

This is another unbelievable module.

11:24 AM ETMark OgdenSenior Writer, ESPN FC Liverpool vs. Manchester City has become the biggest game in English football. The two clubs have pulled away from the pack to battle it out for the major honours and Sunday’s clash at Anfield promises to have a huge impact on the Premier League title race. Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool, champions of Europe, go into the game with a six point lead over City at the top of the table, having made an unbeaten start to the 2019-20 season. Only Manchester United have been able to take points off Liverpool so far this term, drawing 1-1 at Old Trafford last month.Man City, who completed a domestic treble of the Premier League, FA Cup and Carabao Cup last season, have made a shaky start to this campaign, surprisingly losing to Norwich and Wolves, but they travel to Anfield knowing that a win will move them to within three points of Liverpool and potentially inflict a major psychological blow on Klopp’s men. However, a defeat could set Liverpool on their way to a first top flight title since 1990.So where will the game be won and lost? And what are the key issues, not only for the 90 minutes, but the title race as a whole?JUMP TO: Who needs the points the most? | The Anfield factor | How can Man City stop Liverpool? | Where are Man City vulnerable? | The key battle | The 95 minute man | Who wins?THE RACE SO FARLiverpool have raced clear after winning 10 of their 11 games, scoring 25 goals and conceding nine. City, meanwhile, have won eight, drawn one and lost two of their 11 games, but their firepower has seen them hit 34 goals, with 10 conceded at the other end. Within that run, City recorded their biggest-ever top division victory with an 8-0 defeat of Watford at the Etihad.Injuries have hit City harder than Liverpool, who won every game in the absence of first-choice goalkeeper Alisson Becker during the Brazilian’s two-month spell on the sidelines with a calf injury. By contrast, at the Etihad, the long-term loss of centre-half Aymeric Laporte with a knee ligament injury has been compounded by defender John Stones also missing a large chunk of the season so far. He’s back now, which is good news for Pep Guardiola’s defensive options, but City’s No. 1 keeper, Ederson, is a serious doubt for the clash after coming off with a thigh injury at half-time during the team’s 1-1 draw with Atalanta in the Champions League this week, leaving backup Claudio Bravo (and hopefully not Kyle Walker) to slot in.But the story of the title race has been Liverpool’s ability to score crucial goals in the dying stages of games. Without late winners against Leicester and Aston Villa, and a point-saving goal by Adam Lallana at Manchester United, it would be a different story. Indeed, what the Reds have demonstrated this season is that they’ve learned how to win
