So often in recent seasons this has been the fixture to have the biggest impact on the title race and, while there are more teams also in contention this time around, it could once again be a pivotal showdown.
It is arguably more important to Liverpool than Man City, though, with the visitors’ recent form giving them some margin for error whereas Liverpool’s untimely slump has left them with a mountain to climb already.
A run of just two wins in their last eight Premier League outings has left Jurgen Klopp’s side seven points adrift of the leaders having played a game more,
and should that gap grow to 10 – or even stay at seven – this weekend then it is difficult to see them making up the deficit over the remainder of the season.
Sunday’s contest may well fall into the must-win category as far as Liverpool’s title hopes are concerned, then, although Klopp has been quick to insist that his side cannot be focused on the title, but rather on their top-four chances.
The champions could have been knocked out of the Champions League places by the time they kick off on Sunday and are now as close to eighth-placed Tottenham Hotspur as they are to their table-topping visitors this weekend.
The latest setback saw Liverpool fall to a limp and lifeless 1-0 defeat at home to Brighton & Hove Albion on Wednesday night – a second consecutive home league defeat having gone 68 such matches without losing before that.
For fortress Anfield to have crumbled so quickly will be a major concern for Klopp, and you have to go back to September 1963, 57 years ago, for the last time they lost three home league games on the bounce

On paper that may look like the most likely scenario against a Man City side in such good form, but Liverpool’s recent problems have come against teams that have packed men behind the ball and limited the space – something Guardiola is unlikely to do.
There should therefore be more space for Liverpool to operate in and, given the champions’ poor form against the bottom six so far this season, there is logic to suggest that victory over a team like Man City would actually be more likely than one over Brighton at the moment.
