Last season these two sides fought too and nail for the title and in the end, it was Man City who came out on top.
But this campaign Liverpool have turned the tables somewhat as they are currently six points ahead of their arch-rivals.
So naturally, this Sunday’s clash has a lot riding on it for both the teams but Sergio Aguero thinks their clash vs local rivals Man United is still the most important match for them.
“It may be the Clasico for television, but for us, the Clasico, it’s the match against United,” the Argentine said[as quoted].
“Liverpool has always been a tough opponent. But when I arrived, the team we were fighting for the title was United.
“Initially, it was something strange in the city that City competes against United. Then there was Chelsea.
“But these last four seasons, Liverpool have become a very strong team and are now fighting with us to win the Premier League.
“It’s the only team in the league that can hurt us. They have been chasing a new league for years. Last season, they didn’t go all the way, so they are very motivated. This year, they are in front of us and will try to go to the end.”
“We know that this is a ground where it’s very difficult to win, but we’ll try to do it because it has been a long time since the club last won there. This will be a key match for the title.”
The Liverpool vs Man City rivalry is just a situational one since both teams are fighting for the Premier League at the same time but the Manchester Derby truly hold a special place in everyone’s heart despite United going through a rough patch during the past couple of seasons.
