Cole: Liverpool in top shape for Man City trip
Although the playmaker will not feature in the fixture because of a three-match suspension incurred due to his Arsenal red card, Cole is buoyed by what he has witnessed both on the pitch and in training so far this term.
"We are getting fitter and fitter. The players are looking better every day," Cole told liverpoolfc.tv.
"I'll be cheering the lads on and I think we'll do a good job. We are ready, we are getting stronger.
"We are going there full of confidence after holding Arsenal to a draw."
