Liverpool vs Man City: Who will win the Super Sunday clash at Anfield?

Liverpool vs Man City

Liverpool takes on the might of Manchester City this weekend as both sides compete for the available three points at stake. Playing at home was expected to be one of the key jigsaws to Liverpool's advantage in the game.

But Manchester City's ability to make up something in the contest cannot be undermined despite their midweek exploits in the UEFA Champions League.

Losing to PSG was not a good deal of fortune for the Citizens while coming up against Lionel Messi was never expected to be an easy-going affair either.

And it gets even dicier as the Citizens travel to Anfield contemplating on who is more suitable to lead the charge for goal from the centre forward position.

This uncertainty makes it tough with the internal decision for Pep Guardiola among his squad of players.

While the prospect of facing Liverpool's defence reliable Virgil Van Dijk also comes to mind as well for City.

Liverpool sterling class to kill off games is very notable as they readily dispatched Portuguese giants FC Porto 1-5 in Portugal.

But against Pep Guardiola's men, it promises to be an intriguing finale as both sides take to the pitch on Super Sunday.

Liverpool is in fine form having scored five times against the Portuguese representative in Europe but they must be at their very best to annul Pep Guardiola's tactical enumerations in the course of the match.

The likes of Mohamed Salah and Brazil's Roberto Firmino scored a brace each in the game in midweek thus signalling what the Reds are capable of doing when given the real opportunity via the space in behind your defence for them to attack.

It looks like Liverpool would take all the three points at stake in this tie as Manchester City has shown a deficiency in keeping their shape on the field of play.

And in games of this click, any form of a loophole in either side would largely be punished with both sides brimming with quality in the final third.

Let's hope that the match lives up to the billing based on the match expectations ahead of the game as Liverpool would aim to retain their place at the top of the League standing going into the international break.

Despite all the advantages Liverpool can boast of going into this match, expect them to be brought to the test as Pep lines up his side ahead of the big game against Liverpool on Sunday.
