Liverpool have the edge over Manchester City in Premier League title race, says Graeme Souness

Souness also feels the competitive performance culture instilled by Klopp at Anfield is bringing the very best out of Liverpool’s players.

“They are a team I don’t think anyone enjoys playing against because they are aggressive and they test every part of your game with the physicality and technique they all have,” he added.

“They play as a team. It’s unusual in the modern game but they have players who are willing to point fingers at team-mates if they are not at it. That makes them very, very strong.

“They are the team that no one enjoys playing against, people will say that about City in a different way. You have to be at your very best against them.”

‘Stones has potential to be among the best’

Laporte’s absence should give Stones a chance to have an extended run in Guardiola’s starting line-up.

Souness believes the England international has the potential to be among the best defenders in Europe if he can improve his decision making.

“[City] have to hope Stones and Otamendi can form a partnership.

“I think Stones is just missing something, whether it is his decision-making? He has the potential to be the best, better than all of them other than [Virgil] van Dijk.
