Liverpool Fans Are Planning Another 'Coach Greeting' For Man City Players On Sunday
By Tom Sanders
After both Man City and Liverpool came from behind to scrape last minute 2-1 wins on Saturday, all eyes are on the huge clash between the two clubs at Anfield on Sunday.
It's already being billed as a potential title-decider, and both sides are desperate to gain a crucial advantage over their biggest challengers.
City and Liverpool have developed an increasingly bitter rivalry in recent years, with last season's cat and mouse game for the title doing nothing to lower tensions between the two Premier League heavyweights.
Although the two sides have jostled before, most notably in 2014 when they both competed for the title, it wasn't until the 2017-18 season that the hatred really started to set in.
Firstly Liverpool ended City's unbeaten streak in the Premier League, beating them 4-3 in a thrilling game at Anfield.
Then three months later, when the two teams were drawn against eachother in the Champions League quarter-finals Liverpool upped the ante once again by battering the Blues' coach as it made its way through the city en route to Anfield.
It left Pep Guardiola and City fans fuming, and was cited as a reason why their team ended up losing the game 3-0.
The lack of any arrests or repercussions for the Kopites in question also angered City fans.

Of course City eventually had the last laugh, beating Liverpool to the title on two consecutive occasions and ending their own unbeaten run at the Etihad a year later thanks to John Stones' touchline heroics.
But with the two teams set to go head-to-head in another massive clash on Sunday, the scousers are at it again, planning yet another 'coach greeting' for City.
A social media post has been doing the rounds on Kop Twitter and Instagram, urging supporters to line the streets around Anfield and bring 'pyro, pints, flags and banners'.
Liverpool fans will be hoping it can inspire them to victory over City like it did in 2017.
But there's something to be said for diminishing returns, and both City fans and players are wise to the antics of over-eager Liverpool fans by now.
Will it happen? Will it be successful? Who knows, but whatever the result on Sunday let's hope things don't turn ugly.
