The league leaders Liverpool face the second positioned Man City in a fixture which could very well be the title decider. Liverpool lead the Premier League table with 63 points. Whereas, Man City are just one point behind at second place with 62 points so far. They both face in the Premier League fixture on Sunday. This is a huge match with immense anticipation and excitement for the fans. For the Reds it is all to play for, whereas, City would be looking to defend their champions crown. Liverpool would want to win the title for Jurgen Klopp, as he is leaving at the end of the season. However, Pep Guardiola would definitely want to defend his throne as Man City are coming from a treble winning season. It is the clash of the wills, and one game would decide who will win the Premier League title this season.

Liverpool vs Man City : The most awaited game of the season

The Merseyside Police observing the tense situation building up between both the clubs and fans, has decided to put the city on ‘high alert’, reports The Daily Mail. There have been incidents of violence when a Manchester club has visited Anfield, including both City and United. Back in 2018, Pep Guardiola was attacked by Liverpool fans in a Champions League tie at Anfield. Whereas, Man United’s bus was attacked by a glass bottle when the Red Devils visited Anfield last December. Taking notes from these incidents, the Police will be extra cautious for the match day. The administration would do its best to contain the passion and aggression of the fans, and prevent any violent conducts.
The match commander, Inspector Kevin Chatterton said,

“Any disorderly behaviour will not be tolerated, and we will take action to identify and bring to justice anyone found responsible for committing offensive and disorderly behaviour.”

However, from a footballing point of view, it would not be unfair to call it the most intense game of the season.
