The second big clash of the new season is upon us with Pep Guardiola’s men taking a trip to Anfield to face Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool. Manchester City were 5-0 winners last time the two sides faced each other with the case for Liverpool further worsening when Sadio Mane was sent off for a reckless challenge on Ederson.
Klopp will be crippled by the loss of his star player Philippe Coutinho for the match. The German will be hoping to avoid a repeat performance of last time’s encounter and coming away with a win to halt Manchester City’s incredible run.
As for Guardiola, who enjoyed another record by winning four consecutive Manager of Month award this week, the City boss will be keen to add another victory as he aims to become the first manager since Arsene Wenger to go through an entire season without a single defeat.
Jordan Henderson has resumed training but is not expected to start the match. The same is expected for Alberto Moreno who has just started training with the first team. Daniel Sturridge is expected to be out for the match as well with the Englishman still recovering. The big news for Liverpool is that Mohamed Salah has returned from his injury and is fresh to start against Manchester City
Gabriel Jesus is expected to be out for six weeks with cruciate knee ligament injury. Vincent Kompany’s injury status is unknown but he is certain not to start for tomorrow’s match.
Predicted Starting Line-Up
Simon Mignolet, Joe Gomez, Ragnar Klavan, Joel Matip, Andrew Robertson, Emre Can, Georginio Wijnaldum, Adam Lallana, Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane, Roberto Firmino
Ederson, Kyle Walker, John Stones, Nicolas Otamendi, Fabian Delph, Fernandinho, Kevin De Bruyne, David Silva, Raheem Sterling, Leroy Sane, Sergio Aguero
Mohamed Salah has been in scintillating form this season with the Egyptian scoring 17 league goals this season. He will be expected to spearhead Liverpool’s attack at Anfield.
Sergio Aguero has been tipped by Guardiola as the man who can help City clinch a win on Sunday night with Kevin De Bruyne, who made the UEFA team of the year expected to be the other key man for Manchester City on the night.
Liverpool Win: 2/1
Manchester City Win: 11/8
