The Premier League’s biggest game of the season takes place on Sunday afternoon as title hopefuls, Liverpool and Manchester City, clash at Anfield in a fixture that can have huge ramifications on where the Premier League trophy ends up this season. Liverpool have started the season in blistering form, but their six point lead can be halved if City grab three points on Merseyside, a venue they haven’t won at since 2003.
Liverpool have been relentless in recent weeks and have demonstrated great character in protecting their lead at the top, but if they’re to finally end their title drought then they need to prove that they can overpower their current rivals. City’s form this season has been mixed, and with several injuries restricting their chances of making it three Premier League titles in a row, Liverpool’s opportunity to build a substantial lead at the top has never been better.
“We have to win I think,” revealed Michael Conlan, one of boxing’s brightest prospects and a huge Manchester City supporter. “If we hit top form and play to our best then I think we’ll have too much for Liverpool, but whether that happens is another thing. We’ve had a couple of average games this season and have a bit to do to catch Liverpool, but if they go nine points ahead on Sunday then I have to admit that it’s going to be hard catching them as they do look strong.”
On Sunday’s result, Conlan added, “I think we’ll sneak it 2-1 or it could be a high-scoring draw like 2-2. Our defence hasn’t been the best this year because of injuries so whoever starts on Sunday can expect a very hard game. We still have a lot of firepower at the top end of the pitch so we should definitely be on the scoresheet. It promises to be an entertaining game and I’m just praying we can take something from it.”
With Conlan displaying huge passion towards his club, his feelings for City are matched by Natasha Jonas’ desire for Liverpool. A star of the 2012 Olympics due to her high-class boxing prowess and now a professional pursuing the sport’s biggest prizes, Jonas, when not applying herself to her chosen craft is a keen Liverpool supporter. Heading into Sunday’s highly-anticipated battle, Jonas is confident that her team can get it done.
“As a big Red, how can I say anything but a Liverpool win,” buzzed Jonas ahead of her fight in Liverpool on November 15th. “City’s defence just isn’t that strong since Vincent Kompany left and everyone knows what Liverpool’s attack can do when they are in full flow. Even if Liverpool go behind in the game, they’ve showed so much strength in coming back from positions where a victory didn’t seem likely. I think we’ll win 3-2 and Sadio Mane will be the difference.”
