Phil Foden points out Liverpool's advantage over City


Manchester City midfielder Phil Foden is fully aware of the threats Liverpool will pose when the sides meet on Sunday

City host Liverpool on Sunday afternoon at the Etihad Stadium, in a fixture likely to define who goes on to win the Premier League title. This is not the first time the two teams have been battling it out for top spot in the closing weeks of the campaign.

The England top-flight have witnessed similar stories in the 2013/14 and 2018/19 seasons.

Phil Foden believes there is now a 'massive' rivalry that exists between both clubs and pointed  out Liverpool's strong-point.

"They can catch you off guard if we're pressing and they put balls over the top unexpectedly. That is a threat they have and one we will be watching out for," Foden said.

On the ability of Trent Alexander-Arnold, the 21-year-old added: "I love the way Trent passes the ball. I think he is one of the best passers I have ever seen. I do like watching him play."

On the rising tensions witnessed between the two clubs in recent years, Foden told Sky Sports : "I think it has grown recently because we have been very close to winning the league many times, and now it is massive. It is much more important than it used to be.

"They can go on a run of games where they don't lose, we always knew that, but we try to play every game properly and take maximum points. Both teams are going at it, but it's not over in this game. There's going to be many ups and downs, I believe, before the end of the season."
