Liverpool fans are hoping for immense favour from boyhood fan Sean Dyche when Burnley host Manchester City on Sunday.

The Citizens reclaimed the summit of the Premier League with a 2-0 win over Man United at Old Trafford on Wednesday with three games left to play.

Guardiola’s men will retain the title if they win their three remaining matches, which are against Burnley, Leicester and Brighton.

However, Liverpool fans have not given up considering Man City had already lost to Leicester this season and were held to a 1-1 draw at Turf Moor last season.

And Reds fans are hoping manager Sean Dyche who revealed his admiration for Liverpool during the 1970s will stop Man City’s title bid.

“My first recollection of them was at seven years old, then at about eight or nine when you start zooming in on what it’s really about,” Dyche told Lancs.live.

“You start getting your favourite players, mine was King Kenny – as a kid why wouldn’t he be your favourite player?

“Souness as well, and Ray Clemence who I’ve met many times, what a fantastic player, no airs and graces.

“That whole Liverpool thing was quite a powerful thing in the 70s.”

Klopp’s men will be hoping to pile on the pressure on Guardiola’s Man City with a win against Huddersfield on Friday night.
