After a 2-1 win over West Ham United last week, Liverpool head into this fixture on the back of a nine-win streak. Brendan Rodgers’ side came away from the Etihad Stadium with a controversial 1-2 loss in the reverse fixture in December.

Let’s look ahead at six key battles set to take place on the Anfield pitch that will likely have a major say in where the points go.
