Former England star believes Liverpool can “hurt Manchester City” tonight at Anfield

Former England and Arsenal star Ian Wright says he believes Liverpool can “hurt Manchester City” tonight at Anfield.

The two sides meet for the third time this season tonight when they face off the the first-leg of their Champions League quarter-final tie.

City ran out 5-0 winners when the sides first met in September, however it was Liverpool who claimed all three points when they met again in January.

Jurgen Klopp’s men produced a brilliant display to shock City, winning 4-3 to inflict Pep Guardiola’s side with their first Premier League defeat of the season – and Wright says he believes the Reds can do the same again tonight on merseyside.

He said: “We saw at the start of the season [when the two sides played each other] before Sadio Mane got sent off they were doing really well in that game but ended up losing by a few [5-0] after going down to 10 men.

“We then saw what they did to them at Anfield as well. Manchester City will know they will look into Liverpool’s eyes and they’ll say: ‘We are ready for you’

“Kevin De Bruyne said he saw the Everton players [when they played at the weekend] and they didn’t know what to do with them. They couldn’t cope with them.

“Liverpool can cope with them and they can hurt them. It’s going to be so well poised and the fans will have a say in it I think. I’m going to go with Liverpool.”
