Premier League: De Bruyne tells biggest difference between Man City, Liverpool

New Delhi: Kevin De Bruyne considers the biggest difference between Manchester City and Liverpool to be the fact that the Reds are more of “an up-and-down team.”

Two Premier League heavyweights have been battling it out for several years now when it comes to domestic titles and European crowns. Both have got great success, in the English top-flight and cup competitions, but it is City that have been the more consistent under Pep Guardiola, having been crowned champions on four occasions in the last five years, while Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool have only one victory to their name.

Ahead of the two sides meeting again at Anfield on Sunday, De Bruyne has told the media what separates a couple of fiercely-ambitious outfits.

Man City captain said, “They are more of an up-and-down team and we are a team who has more control of the game, so if you can control that style of play then maybe you have more of a chance.”

“I expect them to be at the best Liverpool possible. Obviously, they lost some points but they are still Liverpool and I expect them to be good, that’s the only way I see it. I like big games, I like good atmospheres. It’s a game like any other, obviously, it’s hard playing away at a top-six team always, I think the last few years we’ve done well,” the Belgium international midfielder added.

Manchester City and Liverpool rivalry

City head into their meeting with Liverpool unbeaten throughout the 2022-23 campaign, with a 23-point in nine Premier League games leaving them second in the table. The Reds, in contrast, find themselves in 10th place after taking only two wins and 10 points from eight fixtures.

Manchester City have lost just one of their last 37 Premier League games, and are unbeaten in their last 21 (W16 D5). Away from home, the Citizens are unbeaten in 22 Premier League games (W16 D6), the fourth longest such run in the competition’s history.

The Sky Blues have taken four points from their last two visits to Anfield but did suffer a 3-1 defeat in their last meeting with Liverpool, which came in the traditional Community Shield curtain-raiser at the start of the current campaign.
