Liverpool v Manchester City — Big Match Focus

Adjust Comment Print

Despite becoming a major force in recent years, City have a miserable record at Liverpool, where they have not won in the Premier League since 2003. Against Guardiola, Klopp tends to demand a faster, more direct approach to try to exploit City's high defensive line.

Keita was substituted early in the first half of Liverpool's Champions League defeat to Napoli on Wednesday night.

Beating Manchester City could be "massive" for Liverpool's season after three games without a win, according to Trent Alexander-Arnold.

Where and how to catch the live stream of Liverpool vs Manchester City match? "I know how they fight", he said, adding, "go to Anfield, win, lose, whatever". They are right. So we won the Premier League.

Ahead of today's mouth-watering clash both managers have given praise to one another and their respective sides.

"Liverpool is one of two greatest teams in England".

Meanwhile, with star man Mohamed Salah struggling somewhat for goals, it will be interesting to see whether or not Jurgen Klopp hands a start to the in-form Daniel Sturridge. "I don't know what's going to happen".

For that reason, I rather fancy Liverpool to win the first half, but City to dominate in the closing stages.

Both teams are level on points in the league with 19, and neither has lost a game in the league so far this season. "Maybe we didn't help him like a team and help him to score more goals". Napoli's success against Liverpool with a three-man defence might tempt him into using that system here, especially with Benjamin Mendy set to be available, and therefore providing Guardiola with a proper overlapping option down the left. Sergio has scored a lot of goals, but there were periods when he didn't score.

"I have a really good relationship with Pep".

Attack: Riyad Mahrez is pushing for a recall but I think we'll see Leroy Sane keeping his place in attack while Raheem Sterling should also retain his spot in the front three so Mahrez may have to make do with a place on the bench. The Guinean midfielder stayed overnight in a Naples hospital after suffering a back spasm.
