Two of the big boys clash this afternoon in the Premier League and a classic game beckons.
Liverpool have looked formidable so far this season but there is always that nagging feeling that they are on the verge of being inconsistent once again, they score freely, but their defence does not look solid.
City flatter to deceive they have done for the last couple of seasons, they have the quality and a world class manager but they never seem to be able to confirm their superiority on a consistent basis.
