Manchester City vs. Liverpool: Premier League – Match Preview

In the stand out fixture of the Premier League weekend, Liverpool travel to face Manchester City this Saturday lunchtime.

Manchester City were fortunate to beat Bournemouth before the international break, with Raheem Sterling’s 97th minute winner earning all three points.

Gabriel Jesus had earlier cancelled out a stunning Charlie Daniels strike as City extended their unbeaten start to the campaign.

Liverpool embarrassed Arsenal a fortnight ago, hitting the woeful Gunners for four at Anfield.

Goals from Roberto Firmino, Sadio Mane, Mohammed Salah and Daniel Sturridge helped Liverpool to an easy win.

Match history
Liverpool took four points off Manchester City last campaign, including a drawn fixture at the Etihad.

Manchester City have a poor recent record against the Reds, losing four of the last five meetings.

Team news
Sterling is banned having received a second yellow card for his celebration in scoring the winner against Bournemouth.

One of Jesus or Sergio Aguero could be named among the substitutes again, whilst City have Kyle Walker available again following a ban.

Liverpool could include Philippe Coutinho in the squad for the first time after a move to Barcelona fell through.

There is unlikely to be any surprises in the Liverpool XI and their full-backs could be rotated again.

Expected starting XI’s
Manchester City (4-3-3): Ederson; Walker, Stones, Otamendi, Mendy; D. Silva, Fernandinho, De Bruyne; Sane, Jesus, B. Silva
Liverpool (4-3-3): Mignolet; Alexander-Arnold, Lovren, Matip, Robertson; Wijnaldum, Can, Henderson; Salah, Firmino, Mane


Result: Draw (3/1 with Betfair)

Correct Score: 2-2 (12/1 with Bet 365)

Anytime Goalscorer: Roberto Firmino (23/10 with 888 Sport)
