Dethroned champions Liverpool face current Premier League champions Manchester City on Sunday night at Anfield in a must-see Premier League match. The two powerhouses are presently first and second in the Premier League table after six games with Jurgen Klopp’s side one point ahead of their championship rivals at the top. Here is our expert guess on Liverpool vs Manchester City football prediction for the Champions League match of the season.
Trent Alexander-Arnold is poised to miss his second game in a row, thus James Milner will hold his spot at right-back.
It wouldn’t be surprising if Roberto Firmino started here instead of Diogo Jota.
Jurgen Klopp will be hoping Joel Matip and Virgil van Dijk can keep their heads after three games in a week. If needed, Joe Gomez and Ibrahima Konate are on standby.
This season John Stones has not made his first appearance for Manchester City yet.
After being on the bench against PSG, Phil Foden will start here, possibly moving Kevin De Bruyne to the false nine position.
Jack Grealish has been a constant for City this season, but he showed signs of exhaustion against PSG on Wednesday.
Both Raheem Sterling and Riyad Mahrez are set to leave the starting lineup. Gabriel Jesus and Ferran Torres are ready to take the stage.
Liverpool vs Manchester City Prediction
Liverpool has been undefeated this season in all competitions. Last weekend, they gave up three goals to Brentford, two to AC Milan, and couldn’t break down a Chelsea side that was down to ten men for 45 minutes.
In their 2-0 loss to Paris Saint-Germain in midweek Manchester City were made to rue wasted chances. Pep Guardiola’s team dominated Chelsea last weekend, but they have failed to score in three of their first nine matches this season.
Guardiola’s side still has plenty of quality going forward and should have made the Parc des Princes tremble, therefore we expect the two managers to shake hands on a draw when the final whistle blows.
Liverpool possible starting lineup: Alisson; Milner, Matip, Van Dijk, Robertson; Henderson, Fabinho, Jones; Salah, Firmino, Mane
Manchester City possible starting lineup: Ederson; Walker, Dias, Laporte, Cancelo; Silva, Rodri, Foden; Jesus, De Bruyne, Grealish
