There’s no better time and place for Liverpool to announce its intention to the soccer world.
Liverpool will host Manchester City on Saturday at Anfield in a Premier League Round 12 game.

The Reds’ stunning form is proof of their determination to end their decades-long wait for their 19th English soccer league title. They’re unbeaten in 45 Premier League home games and 28 contests overall.
