Rush: Liverpool cannot afford to lose Man City clash

Liverpool legend Ian Rush says they cannot afford to lose this weekend's clash with Manchester City.

In his column for the Liverpool Echo, Rush wrote: "Manchester City have been mentioned on several occasions as being the side most capable of breaking into the top four this season and, with Liverpool having had a wobble over the last month, it's very likely many will scent blood.

"Liverpool, though, are never better than when the pressure is on them in a big game but they will need a big performance at Anfield on Saturday if they are going to relieve the pressure that has been building and building during a sequence of one win in nine.

"Put simply, this is a game that Liverpool cannot afford to lose; it's going to be a stiff enough task climbing back into the top four from our current position."
