Pep Guardiola's Manchester City could look like a completely different team when Liverpool visit the Etihad Stadium this Saturday.
The Blues will finally be able to cut loose against the Reds, having faced three largely defensive opponents so far this season, but at the same time their new-look defence will face their biggest test to date.
City have taken seven points from their opening three games - only Manchester United have a better haul - but there is a sense that the Blues are yet to really get going.
They have faced the second fewest shots this season (21), but they have had difficulty breaking down stubborn opposition.
So far City's forwards have offered mere glimpses of the quality attacking play they are capable of. It was evident for the opening goal at Brighton, when Kevin De Bruyne and David Silva played the perfect passes to allow Sergio Aguero a relatively simple finish. It was a similar story at Bournemouth, when the quick-thinking Gabriel Jesus linked up with Silva to eek out some much-needed space.
