Liverpool will take on Manchester City on Sunday at Anfield in an extremely prodigious clash of Barclays Premier League so far.The top two contenders of the Premier League at this point of the season have to be at their best to beat the opponent on Sunday because this game will go really far in deciding the fate of BPL 2013-14.
With five games left in the season,Liverpool are at the top of the table with 74 points having played 33 games but their fellow rivals are right behind them with 70 points and two games advantage. The current form of The Citizens in addition to their games in hand advantage gives them a real chance to get their hands back on the Premier League Trophy.
While on the other hand,The Reds, who last enjoyed the jubilance of the top four in 2008-09 being at second position, have been equally determined this season to extirpate the defamation which they have received from the football fans across the world.
“We will unleash the supporters yet again on our opponents,” Rodgers told the BBC.“Anfield is a very, very difficult place for people to come and play now.”
“I sense a real nostalgia about the place, a feeling of the old Liverpool. It will help drive us forward, not hold us back.”
“It has been a long time since the league title was on Merseyside. The most important thing is to get into the Champions League because I know what that brings economically. But if we can continue to play well, get a little bit of luck then hopefully we can make their dreams come true. We will give it absolutely everything.”

Rodgers can start Joe Allen in place of Coutinho to give the Liverpool midfield a bit more strength against such a strong squad.
For City,Yaya Toure should return to the midfield after a minor injury which he picked up against Southampton and the Argentine striker Sergio Aguero after missing the chunk of the season, is expected to make his return to the first team which will give City a huge boost.
Hopefully this clash on Sunday should give a rather clearer picture of which team will win the the most competent league in European Football.
