Jürgen Klopp says Manchester City still the best team in the world

Michael Owen is tipping Liverpool FC to secure a draw against Manchester City at the Etihad Stadium on Thursday night.

City trail their north-west neighbours by seven points heading into the showdown but Sterling says they are not overawed by the prospect of toppling Jurgen Klopp's unbeaten Liverpool.

In recent times, Manchester City had faced the most trouble from Liverpool both in Champions League and Premier League.

Consistent success is the mark of a truly great side and if City should reel in a Liverpool side seemingly hell bent on making history, that is a tag they will deserve.

When Manchester City and Liverpool last met in the Premier League, a fixture usually bulging with goals failed to live up to its billing as the most entertaining in English soccer. Every time we won a lot of games it doesn't mean it will happen in the future.

Guardiola said: "The reality is clear, we are seven points down". "Sometimes if you prepare a football game, watching two or three games of the opponent, you still have no clue what they are doing". Yes, with the record we had in December - I'm not sure if another team had a record like this in December - we are in a good moment.

I can't look past City's left-back issue and the option of Liverpool playing Salah, the league's most unsafe attacker, on that side.

Last season Liverpool beat City three times - twice in a Champions League quarter-final - but despite a club-record start to the season, taking the most points from the opening 20 matches, Robertson said until they have silverware in the trophy cabinet, they can not say they are on the same level. Everyone is talking as if we lose, but we can win.

"We play the way that the game tells us to play", he added. It sounds like we go there and we are more likely to win the game then they are. "We don't know what we can expect but we are ready for everything".

"They're a fantastic team, a very experienced team and they've been in this position before. We'll try to play the same way we've been doing all ways - keep pressing high, having control of the ball, and try to win the three points, which is the most important thing". It is however extremely imprudent to discount Manchester City from taking the race all the way to the end of the season, and a home win on Thursday over their fellow heavyweights would surely reignite the title-chase touch-paper.

"The difference in the Champions League game is they obviously had to win by four goals or whatever so they had to come out".

"I know today nobody trusts us, nobody makes one coin for us, but it is what it is".
