The Premier League champions Manchester City travel to Anfield today to take on Liverpool in the Barclays Premier League.
This is Brendan Rodgers’ first home league match in charge of the Reds.
The 2011/12 season’s corresponding fixture ended 1-1, but Rodgers guided his former club Swansea City to a 1-0 home win over the Citizens last term and will be looking to repeat the feat with his new club and banish the memories of his new team’s 3-0 defeat away to West Bromwich Albion on the opening day of the campaign.
Manchester City saw off one of the league’s new boys in their opening league game of the season by coming back from 2-1 down to beat Southampton 3-2..
Manchester City have not beaten Liverpool at Anfield in the Premier League since winning 2-1 in May 2003 (a run encompassing nine matches without victory).
Liverpool have won half of the past 20 Premier League games between the two clubs, compared to Manchester City’s four.
The match is live on Sky Sports 1 from 3.30pm, kick-off 4pm..
