Man City remain huge favourites for the title after showing tremendous form this year, winning their last 12 league games and scoring 27 goals in the process.

However, Leicester are more than capable of springing a surprise, as witnessed by the reverse fixture against City at the King Power Stadium in December, where they won 2-1 after goals from Marc Albrighton and Ricardo Pereira.

There's a feeling in Liverpool that this weekend could be the one where something finally gives in the title race, and with the Reds doing their job at St. James Park, it is now up to City to show they can deliver under pressure.
