Manchester City captain Vincent Kompany is confident that his side can beat Liverpool on Sunday in what is a hugely important fixture in the Premier League title race, writes Sky
The two clubs meet at Anfield with Liverpool sitting top of the table, four points above their opponents in third, who have two games in hand, the first of which takes place against Sunderland on Wednesday. Should the Reds triumph, they will be seen as heavy favourites to win their first title since 1990.
Liverpool also come into it having lost just one at home all season, but Kompany believes that his side, champions in 2012, will have the beating of Brendan Rodgers’ team. He said: “We remember the match against them earlier in the season and for me, Liverpool are still the best Premier League team we’ve faced at the Etihad.
“They have been on a fantastic run and we know we have to be focused and leave the pitch at the end knowing we’ve given everything because there is so much at stake in this game. But then again, this is a great challenge for us.
“They have a great squad and while we will be wary of that, I think we have quite a few great players of our own. We’ve been to Old Trafford, White Hart Lane and the Allianz Arena and come away with victories this season and our form on the road is as good as anyone.
“We know that if the players, supporters and staff around our club stand together, we are capable of anything.”
