With the Premier League returning from the international break, Man City are eight points behind Arsenal and every week that passes sees them closer to another failure in winning three titles in a row. Although Man City do have a game in hand over the Gunners and still have to face them, Arsenal don’t really look like dropping points, so all Pep Guardiola can do is win his matches and hope.

Man City go into this game unbeaten in six games in the Premier League including a win over Arsenal, but dropped points against Nottingham Forest just a few days later may prove costly. Guardiola will also be sweating over the fitness of Erling Haaland, who had to drop out of Norway’s squad for the international break due to injury.

We’re almost a month on from Liverpool’s 7-0 thrashing of Manchester United, and things haven’t really been going well for the Reds since. Liverpool were given a week off before the international break, out of the FA Cup but also seeing their Premier League game postponed, which gave them a bit more time to lick their wounds.

A week on from the win over Man Utd, Liverpool were beaten 1-0 by Bournemouth in the Premier League and a few days later they fell to Real Madrid by the same scoreline, being knocked out of the Champions League. It does mean Liverpool can fully focus on their hunt for a top four finish, seven points behind fourth-place Tottenham Hotspur with two games in hand.

Man City Predicted XI (4-3-3): Ederson, Kyle Walker, John Stones, Ruben Dias, Nathan Ake, Rodri, Kevin De Bruyne, Bernardo Silva, Riyad Mahrez, Erling Haaland, Jack Grealish

Liverpool Predicted XI (4-3-3): Alisson, Trent Alexander-Arnold, Ibrahima Konate, Virgil Van Dijk, Andy Robertson, Jordan Henderson, Fabinho, Harvey Elliott, Mo Salah, Cody Gakpo, Diogo Jota

Man City vs Liverpool match stats

Liverpool will be looking to do the league double over Man City this season, but Jurgen Klopp’s side will have to overcome their early kick-off lethargy. The Reds have been in the Saturday 12:30pm kick-off five times in the Premier League season, drawing three and losing two. All but one of the games were away from home, and Liverpool failed to score four times, only finding the net in a 2-2 draw with Fulham on the opening weekend.

Looking to breach the Man City net for Liverpool will be Mohamed Salah, who appears to be finding form at the right time in the Reds’ top four push. The Egyptian has had nine shots on target over his last six Premier League games, including two in the 7-0 win over Manchester United.

Man City vs Liverpool Bet Builder

The first game of the weekend is also, arguably, the biggest with Man City hosting Liverpool on Saturday lunchtime. This bet builder could give you a nice winner before the 3pm kick offs even happen.

Man City are unbeaten in 10 games in all competitions and are still chasing Arsenal at the top of the table. Only two of Liverpool’s last eight games have seen any more than two goals, the same can be said of four of Man City’s last eight too. Erling Haaland is the top scorer in the Premier League and needs just two more goals to reach 30 for the season, whilst Fabinho has been booked six times this season, including in four of his last five Premier League games.
