A home advantage could be beneficial for Pep Guardiola’s side when they take on Liverpool on Sunday.
The Reds have maintained a strong form in the Premier League despite a humiliating 7-2 loss against Aston Villa a month back.
City on the other hand had a bumpy start to the Premier League with a series of injuries that led to an array of inconsistent results.
Man City are currently five points behind champions Liverpool and they can increase the lead to eight points if City fails to secure the three points at home.

“We expect a very tough match against Liverpool, we know how strong and solid they are, one of the best teams in the world,” the Portuguese said.
“They are also a direct rival for the Premier League title, so we know how difficult it will be, but like in every game our aim is to win.
“We are also playing at home, which should have a positive influence. We need these three points in order to pursue our place at the top of the table.
“The true is that our last encounters with Liverpool at the Etihad were positive for us. Since I have joined City, we won all our games against Liverpool at home in the Premier League, but these games are always unpredictable.
“We’ll do everything to keep winning and to win on Sunday. We know it will not be easy, but we will do everything we can.”
