Sunday’s match at Anfield promises to be a spectacular encounter, with Liverpool bidding for their tenth straight victory in the Premier League and one which could be decisive when it comes to the destination of the title this season.

Liverpool have had an amazing season and Sunday’s 2-1 win at West Ham keeps the momentum going for the forthcoming clash against City, with Martin Skrtel eagerly awaiting the arrival of the title favourites.

“Things are going well but there is still a long way to go,” Skrtel told the Liverpool Echo.

“We can’t look too far ahead. We need to keep going game to game and now our focus is on getting three points against Manchester City.

“We will look forward to that challenge. We know the atmosphere created by our fans will be amazing.

“We played well at the Etihad earlier in the season and were very unlucky not to take something from that game.

“We are going into it in great form and we will be doing everything we can to keep this winning run going.

“It’s exciting. This is why you play football – for a season like this. You want to be up there challenging for titles.

“There are still five games to play and we all want to keep going in this way and extend this winning run. We just need to stay focused and keep working.”

Brendan Rodgers claims his team will adopt a fearless approach for the title six-pointer, while Manuel Pellegrini’s side will also go on the front foot for what could be an explosive encounter.
