Manchester City will clash heads with Liverpool at the Etihad Stadium on Saturday afternoon as they focus on taking all three points from this encounter. The Mancunian giants recorded an emphatic 8-1 aggregate win in the UCL round of 16, so we can expect the Sky Blues to come in confident.

Pep Guardiola will probably opt for a 4-3-3 formation and is expected to name a strong starting XI. Erling Haaland will lead the line while Ederson Moraes features in between the sticks.

Ederson will feature in between the sticks for Man City after keeping a clean sheet in his last outing. Ruben Dias will resume his defensive partnership with Manuel Akanji at the centre of Guardiola’s defence as they try to keep the opposition attackers at bay during the game.

Kyle Walker will look to give a good account of himself as the right-back, while Nathan Ake gets a chance to impress as a left-back. Both of them need to defend their penalty box well before trying to create chances going forward.

John Stones and Aymeric Laporte will be named on the bench as they wait for their chance to shine in the second 45 minutes if needed.


Ilkay Gundogan, Rodri and Kevin De Bruyne will operate in the central areas as they try to dominate the possession in the middle of the park and engineer enough chances for Man City to win this Premier League contest.

Kalvin Phillips will have to be content with a spot on the bench and might come on to make an impact in the second half if needed.


Bernardo Silva will function in the right-wing position while Jack Grealish operates on the opposite flank; both of them will have to provide support from the wide areas and cut into the penalty box to create chances in front of the goal.

Erling Haaland will lead the line for the Mancunian giants on the attacking third of the pitch. The Norway international would be eager to get his name on the scoresheet when he laces up to face off against the Merseyside defenders this midweek.

Julian Alvarez will be named on the bench as he awaits his chance to catch the eye in the final quarter of the game if Man City are in need of a goal by then.
