It will be the Reigning champions versus current league leaders this evening (Sunday) as Liverpool play hosts to Manchester City at Anfield in the 2020/21 Premier League.
Liverpool’s defence of the Premier League title has faltered in recent weeks as just two wins in eight league games has left them in the fourth place, seven points off of the leaders.
The unbreakable fortress that was Anfield has fallen as well, with Jurgen Klopp’s side losing their last two home matches against bottom-half oppositions Burnley and Brighton & Hove Albion.
Pep Guardiola’s side, in contrast, are hitting top gear after a slow start to the campaign.
Their 2-0 win against Burnley earlier in the week made it thirteen victories on the bounce across all competitions for the Cityzens.
This has meant that City are now perched atop the league standings with a three-point gap and a game in hand over second-placed Manchester United.
The reverse fixture, played at the Etihad Stadium last November ended in a 1-1 draw with Gabriel Jesus cancelling out Mohamed Salah’s early penalty.
Liverpool XI (4-3-3): Alisson, Alexander-Arnold, Fabinho, Henderson, Robertson, Alcântara, Wijnaldum, Jones, Salah, Firmino, Mané
Man City XI (4-2-3-1): Moraes, Cancelo, Stones, Dias, Zinchenko, Silva, Hernández, Gündoğan, Mahrez, Sterling, Foden
Kick off is at 17:30 (GMT +1).
