"Liverpool at home... it's a huge game", he added.

Manchester City will play host to Liverpool FC in this match at Etihad on Saturday, September 9.

Raheem Sterling will be soon be offloaded by Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola, a number of the Sky Blues' Premier League rivals reportedly believe.

This season is expected to one of the toughest in Premier League history considering that many sides have spent millions on developing their sides this summer. The same fixture a year ago was a 1-1 draw that we should have won.

Arsenal, who accepted a bid from Man City for Sanchez last week, is at home to Bournemouth on Sunday (AEST) and is looking to avoid a third straight loss.

With both City and Liverpool making unbeaten starts to the new Premier League season, Dickov has highlighted Jurgen Klopp's team's inefficiency in defence as a major plot-point ahead of Saturday's early kick-off. A win for either side in this match would send the victors to the top.

His side have stuttered slightly so far, drawing at home to Everton, and needing a 97th minute victor from Raheem Sterling to beat Bournemouth. They also came away with a 2-1 win at Bournemouth with seven minutes into stoppage time.

"Liverpool have been impressive but defensively against Watford and the last game other teams having chances, especially from set-pieces". City weren't dominant or coherent in their play. While they have their own problems in attack, their front three of Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino has already proved to be a deadly combination with Kompany's organisational skills in the City backline vital to keeping the trio quiet.

The Reds have made a strong start to the new campaign under Jurgen Klopp and have won two of their opening three games to leave them second in the table behind high-flying Manchester United.

This really is a tantalising fixture, perhaps even the game of the season so far in terms of potential entertainment and the likelihood of goals.
