Liverpool midfielder James Milner reckons his former club Manchester City will return to winning ways after their humiliating home defeat to the Merseysiders.
The Citizens were smashed 4-1 at the Etihad on Saturday as they moved down to third position on the Premier League table, and Milner - who sealed a move from City to Anfield in the summer - is expecting Manuel Pellegrini's men to respond.
"They’re a team of top-class players and that will hurt them," he said.
"I spoke to one or two of them and they were disappointed. They were complimentary about how we played but they know they can play a lot better than that.
"They’ve a lot of big games coming up as well. I’m sure they’ll bounce back.
"Hopefully we can keep riding the wave and take the confidence we’ve got from today and kick on, and hopefully they’ll bounce back as well - I’ve a lot of good friends there and want them to see do well when they’re not playing against us."
