Welcome to the live updates of the Premier League clash between Liverpool and Manchester City at Anfield.

The two teams have established themselves as the leading contenders for the Premier League crown following their impressive start to the season. Liverpool were one of the few teams to beat Manchester City last season, triumphing three times over Pep Guardiola's men. They will be looking for an early edge over them once again to set the tone for the rest of the campaign.

Liverpool will need to respond to suffering their first defeat of the season, conceding a late goal in their Champions League clash against Napoli. The Reds were off colour and paid the price when Lorenzo Insigne found the net in the dying stages. Their winning run in the Premier League came to an end last time out against Chelsea as Daniel Sturridge's late stunner was needed to salvage a point at Stamford Bridge. Klopp needs to get his team back on track with a polished display against the champions this afternoon.

Manchester City were grateful to a late strike from David Silva to avoid dropping further points in the Champions League after Hoffenheim. City had a shocking start to their midweek game as Ishak Belfodil put the hosts ahead, but Sergio Aguero equalised almost immediately. Silva converted in the 87th minute to snatch the three points, extending his side's run of four-straight victories in all competitions. Guardiola's men are locked in on the same points as Liverpool in the Premier League and will be determined to prove that the Reds are not their bogey side with a strong performance at Anfield.
