Man City vs Liverpool: Predictions
It has been a helter-skelter start to the Premier League season, with habitual winners Man City and Liverpool sticking to this chaotic narrative and suffering shock defeats along the way.
Pep Guardiola bolstered his backline once again in the summer window but could not find the answers to prevent Leicester scoring five at the Etihad in September. They have since responded with wins over Arsenal and Sheffield United, but endured back-to-back draws with Leeds and West Ham.
That has the north-west club down in tenth, but with a game in hand, while Jurgen Klopp’s side have put that 7-2 reversal at the hands of Aston Villa behind them, winning two and drawing in the Merseyside derby to climb back up the table.
The reigning champions currently find themselves in first position, but if City win this blockbuster bout and their game in hand, then they will leapfrog the Reds. It’s all to play for in a mouthwatering contest between this season’s two favourites for the title.

Man City vs Liverpool: Match Stats
Of managers Guardiola has faced more than five times, Klopp is the only man in the opposite dugout that he has a negative record against. Stretching back to their Der Klassiker days in charge of Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund, Guardiola has only secured eight wins to Klopp’s nine, and the German enters this match with his side atop the table and in a rich vein of form.
And, one player he can count on the be active in the final third is Mohamed Salah. The Egyptian has currently taken on more shots than any other player in the Premier League this season (32) and has a record of four goals in his last seven appearances against City in competitive meetings.

City ran out comfortable victors at the Etihad back in July, with Guardiola inflicting a 4-0 loss on the champions, but by that point Klopp’s side were already confirmed title winners.
