Well, it’s upon us. Liverpool vs Manchester City. The biggest match in the Premier League. Roberto Firmino talked to the press about the matchup.

“It’s an important match, like all the others. It ends up being more special because it is the two teams fighting for the top of the table,” the Brazilian told Premier League Productions.

“[It’s] a match where we have to be careful, playing against a big team that we know really well, and they know us well too. We have to be careful and focused on the game to perform well and try to win.

“It is a big game between two big teams that are fighting for the top. We have to be careful not to give the opponents many chances. Of course it is a match worth six points, and we have to do our best: defend well and play good football.”

“Of course, it is special. It motivates us a bit more - a big match between two big clubs,” the Liverpool striker explained.

“And, of course, with the years the rivalry has grown more, and in this match it will not be different. I hope it will be a great game and that we can do our best.”
