The Premier League's best attack meets the worst defence on Saturday afternoon as title-chasing Manchester City host relegation-threatened Fulham.
While Liverpool's SAS attack has helped them bag 76 goals to City's 71, Manuel Pellegrini's side have played two matches fewer than the Reds and have a better goal-to-game ratio than their championship rivals.
It is these games in hand which make the Citizens, who are six points behind table-topping Chelsea having played three games fewer, title favourites with most of the major bookmakers again.
In contrast, Fulham are everyone's pick to go down despite a 1-0 win over Newcastle United last week - their first victory under Felix Magath - which kept the gap to safety at just four points.
The match winner against the Magpies, Ashkan Dejagah, is a doubt for the Cottagers as he nurses a groin problem, while £12m club-record signing Kostas Mitroglou has been ruled out with a knee injury.
