Sergio Aguero is confident if Manchester City can maintain their style they can shrug off the challenge of Liverpool.
The defending champions are scheduled to host the current table toppers and this much anticipated clash could set the tone for the remainder of the season for the winning side.
Jurgen Klopp’s side have entered the 2019 with a massive seven points lead over second placed Manchester City. City need to grind out a victory from this match to keep themselves alive in the title race.
The onus will be on Aguero who has the knack of finding the net pretty often in this particular fixture. The Argentine international feels if City play their natural game beating Liverpool is very much possible.
“Our focus should be on our own game.
“We are confident in our playing style and we believe it’s the most effective to lead us to victory.”
“There’s no denying it is a huge game for both clubs,
“Direct clashes between leading teams have a major impact towards the end of the season.
“December didn’t pan out the way we wanted it to and now we’ve got more ground to make up so, yes, that makes the game even more important.
“But we are only in January and there are still plenty of Premier League games ahead of us and, from the looks of it, there are three or four teams angling to win the title. It’s going to come down to the wire.
“Of course, we knew repeating last year’s success wouldn’t be a simple task but we always aim for excellence.”
