Liverpoolneed to embrace and enjoy Sunday’s game againstManchester Cityif they are to get a result.

That’s the opinion of former Arsenal defender Martin Keown .

The Reds have the chance to go nine points clear at the top of the table with a win at Anfield.

Jurgen Klopp’s charges are currently six points clear, but can take a major step towards winning their maiden Premier League title on Sunday.

City could be without goalkeeper Ederson through injury, after the Brazilian was taken off against Atalanta in the week.

But Keown believes that, whatever team faces them, Liverpool need to enjoy the game – something they didn’t do in a draw at Old Trafford against Manchester United last month, the only top-flight match this season that they have failed to win.

The Reds are the only unbeaten team remaining in the league, and the ex-Arsenal defender wants them to take that into the game on Sunday.

“Liverpool like to attack with seven men, leaving their central defenders and Fabinho to tidy up,” he wrote in hisDaily Mailcolumn.

“Yet City will want to test this.

“As important as tactics are, it is just as vital that Klopp’s players wa lk out at Anfield with the swagger of English champions in waiting, which was what they did not do when they faced Manchester United at Old Trafford previously.

“ They have to act as if they are the title favorites, even if they don’t like that.

“You are the ones unbeaten this season, not City, so carry that aura of invincibility into this clash.

“Embrace and enjoy it, rather than letting it hold you back.”

Known also explained that the game could be decided by each side’s front three, as the best attacking teams in the league meet for the first time this campaign.

“For Liverpool, Mohamed Salah an d Sadio Mane act as ‘inside forwards’, occupying the space between the full backs and center backs, ”he continued.

“ The man in between, Roberto Firmino, is then often seen dropping deep and connecting attacks.

“For Manchester City, whose 52 goals in all competitions this season means they have scored more than any other European club, Raheem Sterling and Bernardo Silva will remain wide. ”
