MAN CITY face the biggest test of their invincibility when they visit Liverpool on Sunday.
Liverpool, who will have to shake off the loss of £142 million man Philippe Coutinho, are unbeaten in 17 while Man City of course remain unbeaten domestically after surviving an EFL Trophy scare against Bristol City.
Pep Guardiola is convinced the quadruple can't be done and while Coral have cut the odds to 20-1 I agree with the Spaniard.
I don't see them going through the league campaign without a loss either but will the record go at Anfield? City hammered Liverpool 5-0 at the Etihad but have lost four out of five at Anfield and haven't won there since 2003.
Virgil van Dijk has arrived at half Coutinho's price and made a decent start with the winner against Everton in the FA Cup – and while he has been ruled out with a hamstring injury a surprising stat is Liverpool have conceded just four at home in the league.
I expect goals but having watched a run of 0-0 TV games – the latest being Sheffield Utd v Sheffield Wed – I'm not backing it. Anyone who fancies it should back no scorer at 16-1 with Marathonbet.
