Former Fulham striker Brian McBride explained on the ESPN FC show on BT Sport/ESPN on Wednesday evening (November 18) the only way Liverpool can win against Manchester City this weekend.
"The only way that Liverpool can pull something off if they can press," said McBride. "When I say press, it’s not just one v one."
Liverpool will be looking to return to winning ways on Saturday evening when they take on City away from home in the Premier League.
The Reds will head into the encounter at the Etihad Stadium on the back of a 2-1 defeat to Crystal Palace at Anfield.
The loss to Palace just before the two-week international break brought to an end Liverpool’s three-match winning run in all competitions.
The defeat was also Jurgen Klopp’s first since he replaced Brendan Rodgers as the Liverpool manger last month.
The Merseyside outfit are 10th in the Premier League table at the moment with 17 points from 12 matches.
Meanwhile, City currently find themselves at the top of the standings with 26 points from 12 games.
