Liverpool, Jurgen Klopp aim to continue unbeaten run vs. Man City
Jurgen Klopp will try to maintain his unbeaten Premier League run against Manchester City when Liverpool head to the Etihad Stadium on Saturday.
Liverpool have won three of the four Premier League games Klopp has managed against City, with a 1-1 draw in March the only time they have failed to earn three points in Manchester.
The only other time Liverpool has failed to defeat City under Klopp was in the final of the Football League Cup in February 2016, which City won on penalties.
Under Klopp, Liverpool have lost just one of their 22 Premier League games against a team that finished in the top seven places in the table last season. They are also unbeaten away from home against those top seven teams, winning five of nine games.
City, meanwhile, are unbeaten in their last 11 Premier League home games and have lost only once in their last 23 such appearances at the Etihad, dating to March 2016.
They have also lost only once in their eight home games against Liverpool -- a 4-1 defeat on Nov. 21, 2015. That game, Klopp's first, was the last time City lost by three goals in a home Premier League game.
Klopp, who was at Borussia Dortmund and Mainz before taking over at Liverpool, enters having won five of 10 games against Pep Guardiola -- the most for any coach against the current City boss.
Liverpool's Sadio Mane has scored seven goals in his last nine Premier League games, including a goal in each of his last four.
Only three Liverpool players have scored in five consecutive Premier League appearances: Michael Owen, who did it three times, Dirk Kuyt and Daniel Sturridge.
Meanwhile, City's Sergio Aguero has scored one goal in all five of his Premier League appearances against Liverpool at the Etihad Stadium.
If Aguero scores against Liverpool, he will have 124 goals in the Premier League and surpass Dwight Yorke for the most by a non-European player.
Phillipe Coutinho, whose availability for Liverpool remains uncertain, has scored more Premier League goals against City than any other opponent, with one goal in four of his six appearances.
Gabriel Jesus has been involved in 12 goals in his 11 Premier League starts for City, scoring eight times with four assists.
James Milner, who left City for Liverpool following the 2014-15 season, has scored twice in his four Premier League games against his former club.
