There are signs that Liverpool may be the first team to beat Manchester City in the Premier League this season when the two sides meet at Anfield on Sunday, according to Thierry Henry.

The Reds will be playing their first match since losing Philippe Coutinho to Barcelona but Jurgen Klopp insists they still have enough firepower to cope without the Brazilian global during the second half of the season.

City has not lost a single match since the season start; leading the table with 62 points after 22 matches.

Their 5-0 thrashing at City earlier in the season was Klopp's heaviest defeat in all competitions as Reds boss, and his joint-heaviest ever managerial loss.

"I think that is the big difference between them and us -- and between them and all the top teams".

And they have shored up their suspect defence by paying an eye-watering £75 million to Southampton for defender Virgil Van Dijk.

It has been Sergio Auguero's time to shine of late, with four goals in City's last three games to take his tally for the season to 13, from 17 matches.

Liverpool may have already been involved in the most high profile transfer of the January window but if they are to lose another player then clubs will have to come forward with good money for Daniel Sturridge.

"It's a little unusual", says Wijnaldum, "and I think we still have to realise that he has gone".

Asked about Sanchez, he said: "I understand completely why you ask this question; it's your job". "You would obviously prefer to have that front with Coutinho as a No 10".

The Reds have benefitted recently from other top-six clashes, when sides they're contesting with for Europe inevitably drop points. He also scored the opening goal the last time these two sides faced each other.

Whether it is relevant that Man City's last win at Anfield in 2003 is debatable, since City has become such a well-heeled club in the years since. They are only looking at more reinforcements to further strengthen the team.

Even then, the result mattered little, as it was in a Champions League dead-rubber against Shakhtar Donetsk after City had won their first five group games. The England global has been in outstanding form for Guardiola's side this season but what's behind his scoring streak?
