Phil Foden feels it will mean more if Manchester City retain the Premier League title this season because of the tight race with Liverpool that could go down to the wire

Manchester City forward Phil Foden says Sunday's visit of Liverpool, live on Sky Sports, is "the biggest game" - and the one "all footballers want to play in".

Champions Manchester City host second-placed Liverpool with a slender one-point advantage at the top of the Premier League table in what is proving to be a captivating title race.

Foden tells Sky Sports the rivalry has grown to become "massive" since he broke into the first team and is expecting "the whole world" to be watching when these two foes meet at the Etihad on Sunday.

"Two teams fighting for the Premier League, very close on points," he told Sky Sports, "it's the biggest game and the game that all footballers want to play in.

"I think there is going to be a lot of neutrals watching it as well. It's going to be an entertaining game."

When City face Liverpool, the two sides rarely disappoint, as was showcased earlier this season with the frantic 2-2 draw at Anfield in which the champions battled back from behind twice in a Premier League classic.

"It's a great atmosphere playing at Anfield as well, it's the biggest occasion. Everyone I have asked it has been one of their favourite games this year."

Foden: Why this title race will 'feel better' to win

This season's title challenge stands in stark contrast to that of last season for City, who sauntered to Premier League glory, boasting a 12-point gap over second-placed Manchester United.

Foden is glad for the challenge, saying "it's better to win the hard way sometimes", but does not expect Sunday's result to determine the title race.

"I think it will feel better if one of us just wins instead of just running away with the league," said Foden.
