Man City prepare to entertain Liverpool at City of Manchester Stadium on Saturday afternoon, needing to improve on a poor record between the sides. The visitors have won 30 of the 74 previous games, with the Sky Blues winning just 25.
The most recent encounter between these two sides at City of Manchester Stadium was just last season, in December 2003, where the two teams cancelled each other out in an enthralling 2-2 draw in a Premiership match.
