Former Manchester City midfielder Yaya Toure says he is "scared" of Liverpool – and admits it is hard to see the Reds losing many points.
The city is the only team to beat the Reds this season in the Premier League, with 16 matches remaining in the title race.
According to the Manchester Evening News, Toure said: "Liverpool are very strong, last year was brilliant, reaching the final of the Champions League.
"The Premier League is one of the best in the world and this year will be so difficult to score. Liverpool is very good at the moment and I'm very scared of them. "

Toure chose three men in particular that he fears in the Reds' line-up and it was predictable that the three front-runners terrorized City last season.
They tore the defense of the city sometimes in the Champions League, mainly.
The Ivorian added: "As a City fan, I want them to drop points, but it's going to be hard to be honest because the team looks great. Salah with Sadio Mane and Firmino in front, I like them. "
Let's hope the Reds remain in good shape today. Reaching 57 points after 22 starts is a big comeback, but that will not mean anything unless the title is won in May.
As Toure suggests, there is no reason to think that this can not happen – to beat City for the title would be a brilliant achievement.
