5 bold Premier League predictions: Van Dijk leads Liverpool to victory

Between January 2013 and May 2014, the striker scored 35 goals, helping his side mount an unlikely title challenge in his first full season with the club.

Pep Guardiola has spent three months being asked if Manchester City can complete the Premier League season undefeated to become the division's new "Invincibles".

Conte, whose side face Leicester tomorrow, told the BBC: "Everything is possible".

You'd like to think that Tottenham, at home, in decent form, will win this one easily.

This weekend sees a potentially memorable league meeting take place, as Liverpool welcome the soon-to-be-champions to Merseyside.

I think Liverpool could be the team that finally beat Manchester City. It wasn't the easiest path to that starting spot, but it was the encouragement from Klopp that got him there.

And that's not even mentioning Roberto Firmino, who himself has nine goals and four assists to his name in 2017/18, leaving the Reds' striking department well stocked. "Premier League Pass" will feature more than 1,000 hours of additional Premier League programs and news shows throughout the season.

Once Mané was sent off however, Liverpool waved the white flag by substituting the Egyptian international.

Any potential slip up by the champions elect will leave the door open for the Red Devils, who host managerless Stoke City on Monday evening.

Liverpool have only lost three league games in 2017/18, but the 5-0 mauling they received at the Etihad Stadium was certainly the most comprehensive and it will be intriguing to see how much both sides have developed since then. "It's a normal thing, we have to make the best of it - and it's easy because we have fantastic players".

"I understand completely this question, you make this question, but I am focused on Liverpool", he said. We can't compare, we just have to deal with the situation.

"Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain is there, Adam Lallana is back, but obviously you are going to miss Coutinho". In the Premier League, Tottenham come off a 1-1 draw against West Ham United.

But Van Dijk is adamant the fee won't weight him down and actually sees the price as a "compliment", rather than something to put pressure on him. The bigger picture is Manchester City remain unbeaten and currently own a 15-point advantage at the top.

"I think Vincent is not ready", Guardiola confirmed.

"You can see yourself that the atmosphere at every home game is amazing".

"If I would have said 'no way', the club would have said: 'Okay, let's try.' But it was clear there was no chance".

A loan move has been ruled out by Liverpool at present but as the window drags on, the prospect of a temporary move increases. It will be their biggest test.

Nathaniel Clyne, Jordan Henderson, Alberto Moreno and Daniel Sturridge are all still out injured.
