Arsene Wenger thinks Manchester City’s inferior defence could have big consequences for them against Liverpool on Sunday.
The Citizens travel to Anfield at the weekend in the top-of-the-table clash against Liverpool with Jurgen Klopp’s men six points ahead of the defending champions in the Premier League.
“Well we have seen in recent years that they are very tight games,” Wenger told beIN Sports.
“We know Man City will take the game to Liverpool, and that Liverpool will be very dangerous on the counter-attack.
“I personally feel they could not afford to lose Laporte, Manchester City.
“If you look at their results, they still play great football but they are a fractionally a bit more vulnerable defensively. And that could be a big handicap against Liverpool.”
