Manchester City and Liverpool are dominating the Premier League for the second season in a row, as we’re looking at one of the most intense title challenges in a century.
Klopp and his men lead the league with six points ahead of Manchester City as the big duel approaches.
The Citizens found themselves in a similar situation last season. Liverpool had an eight-point advantage at one point, just as they did this season before the United clash.

A lot is at stake as Liverpool will host Manchester City at Anfield the following Sunday.
However, Sergio Aguero cooled things down, perhaps belittling Liverpool.
“It may be the Clasico for television, but for us, the Clasico, it’s the match against United,” Aguero told France Football, as quoted by Liverpool Echo.
“Liverpool has always been a tough opponent. But when I arrived, the team we were fighting for the title was United.
“Initially, it was something strange in the city that City competes against United. Then there was Chelsea.
“But these last four seasons, Liverpool have become a very strong team and are now fighting with us to win the Premier League.”
However, the Argentinian ended by respecting currently their biggest opponent.
“It’s the only team in the league that can hurt us. They have been chasing a new league [title] for years.”
