But despite the team's tacit attitude to the league, they faltered in key moments across every other competition - losing out to Middlesbrough in the League Cup, Manchester United in the FA Cup and Chelsea in the UEFA Champions League. Instead, they have constructed two blocks of three: a trio of centre-backs protected by another of defensive midfielders - a riposte to City's excellence in midfield, dominance of possession and capacity to get players into central areas. Liverpool are capable of taking that one step further because while they have shown in the past that they are susceptible to letting in cheap goals at the back, Klopp will not take a backwards step and it may force Guardiola into a re-think about his tactics.

How has that transfer affected the rest of Jurgen Klopp's team? Cole also won four FA Cups with Chelsea and combined with the three he had already won with Arsenal, make him the player with the most amount of winners medals in the famous competition's history.

"We still have tough teams away, there is still a lot of things to do". You've got to be [wary] of the attacking prowess that they've got but there are areas of weakness.

While City have been irresistible at times this season, this is a strong Liverpool side - strengthened by the addition of Virgil van Dijk in defence. The French global joined United in 2006 from Monaco for £5.5 million, and despite having a nightmare on his debut against Liverpool he would go onto become one of Sir Alex Ferguson's most trusted lieutenants.

Andrew Robertson has filled in for Moreno at left back in that time with some excellent performances but Moreno's return will be a welcome one with Jürgen Klopp having heavily rotated his squad throughout recent months.
