Manchester City have asked Liverpool for assurances that there will no repeat of the attack on their bus when the teams meet at Anfield on Sunday, sources have told ESPN FC.

The City team bus was attacked with cans, bottles and flares as it made its way to Anfield for the Champions League quarterfinal first leg in April 2018.

No players or staff were injured but the vehicle, which had windows smashed, was deemed unsafe to take the team back to Manchester following the game, which Pep Guardiola’s side lost 3-0.

No arrests were made but Liverpool and manager Jurgen Klopp apologised for the incident while the club were also hit with a UEFA fine.

City have been made aware that posters encouraging Liverpool fans to “bring your pyro, pints, flags and banners” and “line the streets all the way up Anfield Road and to the ground” are in circulation on social media.

Merseyside police will not be making City’s route to the stadium public and have been in touch with City about any potential problems.

Liverpool head into the clash six points ahead of the reigning champions. City are looking for their first win at Anfield since 2003 and Guardiola’s side are the last team to inflict a Premier League defeat on Liverpool, winning 2-1 at the Etihad Stadium in January.
