Manchester City will make a short trip to Merseyside to take on Liverpool at Anfield as part of the first-leg of their quarter-final clash in the UEFA Champions League. The Citizens are in sensational form in both domestic and European competitions but could face a stiff challenge at Anfield, especially considering how they suffered their first domestic loss of the season against the Reds. 

Pep Guardiola will be confident about his team’s chances of securing progression over two legs and will hope to lead his team to a positive result on Wednesday night. They recently eased past Everton with 3-1 scoreline and will look to repeat that feat versus Jurgen Klopp’s Reds. The recent history of the fixture makes a grim reading for the Citizens as they have lost three of their last five meetings with the Merseysiders. Guardiola is expected to opt for a 4-3-3 formation and will be sweating on the fitness of Sergio Aguero, who is in a race to be fit in time for this encounter with the Reds.

4-3-3 Manchester City Predicted Lineup To Face Liverpool

Defence

Ederson is anticipated to start in goal for Manchester City and could be shielded by a backline consisting of captain Vincent Kompany and Nicolas Otamendi in central defence while Kyle Walker operates as the right-back and Oleksandr Zinchenko starts on the left side of the defence.

Pep Guardiola’s defenders have conceded just three goals in their past six matches across all competitions. However, they will be up against a determined Liverpool side, who has been banging in the goals for fun. The Spanish manager will hope that his backline can keep it tight at the back and stop the free-flowing Reds attack.

Midfield

The terrific trio of Kevin De Bruyne, Fernandinho, and David Silva might be deployed at the centre of the park. They will be tasked to create some opportunities for the forwards and also, chip in with a goal or two, that will make the difference on the night. İlkay Gündoğan and Yaya Toure may have to settle for a place on the bench at Anfield.

Attack

The dangerous front three of Raheem Sterling, Sergio Aguero, and Leroy Sane is expected to start up top for City. Gabriel Jesus might have to settle for a place on the Citizens bench and come on during the game if required.

The front three of City has scored loads of goals and provided a lot of assists during the course of this season. Hence it is expected that one of these players will make the difference on the night.
