Pep wary of Reds' movement
Manchester City head coach Pep Guardiola has praised Liverpool for their approach to the game, ahead of an Anfield showdown with Jurgen Klopp's Reds.
The Citizens can be backed at 13/10 to take all three Premier League points on Merseyside on Sunday and are 9/1 to edge a 2-1 victory, with a 1-1 draw between the two title hopefuls available at 13/2.
Guardiola respects Reds
And the Spaniard is full of respect for Liverpool, who had won six of the last seven league meetings between the two times at Anfield, before being thumped 4-1 by the Citizens last season.
In particular, Guardiola drew attention to the way Klopp's side make space by rotating players into wide areas to move their opponents around in defence

Guardiola told his club's official website: "It's a team that loves to attack space. Salah plays wide sometimes, but Robertson and Alexander-Arnold like that wide space.
"They create gaps because of their movements. They create space in the middle and have high intensity in all places - if they win a lot of games it's because they are good.
"All the time they are competing, I admire that. No matter what the situation, they try to play their game."
Klopp has right-back choices
However, one of the players mentioned by Guardiola will be absent, with Trent Alexander-Arnold still sidelined by a muscle injury, having also sat out the 5-1 midweek Champions League victory at FC Porto.
Versatile veteran James Milner filled in at right-back in Portugal, but Klopp may opt to use either Joe Gomez or Neco Williams against the Citizens.
He admitted: "We obviously have Joe as an option and Neco is back now after injury."
