Sergio Aguero turns away to celebrate after scoring against Southampton

SERGIO AGUERO hopes to maintain his golden touch against Liverpool and boost Manchester City's hopes of catching the Premier League leaders tomorrow. Everyone knows how good their front three are - they work a lot and so do the midfielders.

Liverpool are in a great position and are playing brilliant soccer, but a side that has struggled with title pressure in the Premier League era might just be one injury away from letting this lead slip.

"We know the pressure is a little bit more on us because if we don't win it will be very hard to go after them", Silva said.

The former England man told Sky Sports: "If Liverpool don't lose at Man City, then that rules City out of the title race".

Meanwhile, City have been on a poor run of late, losing three of their past five games including two in a row against Crystal Palace and Leicester City.

Speaking ahead of Liverpool's win against Arsenal, Klopp said: "Milly is Milly, that means he is again ahead of schedule".

"We know we are seven points behind and if we win it will be only four - seven or four is very different - but we'll put some pressure into them".

Andy Cohen reveals sex of upcoming baby
Cohen shared his baby news just days before Christmas, revealing that his bundle of joy was due in "about six weeks". Cohen is obviously very excited to become a dad and is looking forward to meeting the baby boy! I really do.

"Do they go out and think that if they draw they've probably taken Manchester City out of the equation? Or do they go for the jugular and win the Premier League on Thursday night?" "There are not other things in our minds at the moment".

He wrote in his Liverpool Echo column: "This is the best Liverpool team since the title-winning side I played in back in 1987/88".

"I think everybody when they see some teams struggle, who are behind you and coming after you, it's nice to see obviously".

Former Liverpool man Raheem Sterling makes up the attacking trio having matched Aguero's tally of nine goals in the league so far this season and, while his form has tailed off slightly in recent weeks, he still warrants a spot ahead some of the league's other leading forwards.

"Can they do it?"

"Unfortunately we lost two (games) and have a rival that is the best team in Europe or in the world in top form like Liverpool", added Guardiola. "All we can do is do our job, play our games and after that we will see".

City have won just one of seven meetings since Guardiola joined Klopp in England after locking horns in charge of Bundesliga giants Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund.
