The biggest game of the Premier League season so far takes place at Anfield on Sunday afternoon when leaders Liverpool welcome champions and closest title challengers Manchester City to Merseyside.
Both sides have played down the suggestion that this could be a title decider in November, but there is no doubt that the result will have a huge impact on the table – either Liverpool move nine points clear, their lead stays at six points or Man City cut the gap to three.

Six points separate the two sides at the top of the table after 11 games, with Liverpool having dropped only two from a possible 33 so far this term and Man City struggling to keep pace.
The Reds have won 16 of their 18 matches across all competitions this season and 10 of their opening 11 in the Premier League, with their only dropped points so far coming away to City’s local rivals Manchester United last month.

Liverpool vs Manchester City Match Preview
November is incredibly early to be talking about a title decider, but Liverpool’s lead at the top of the Premier League table will be nine points if they can beat Manchester City on Sunday.
That means victory for the Reds would make them long odds-on favourites to end their 30-year wait to become champions of England once more.
This is obviously a huge fixture in the race for the crown and the bookmakers are struggling to separate the teams in the match result market, which is actually a big compliment to City considering Liverpool have a 100% record at home in the Premier League since the start of February.
