Stadium – Etihad Stadium

We cannot overemphasize what this match could do to the season of both teams. Manchester City have led the league for a long time now, losing to Liverpool could damage confidence and heap more pressure on them. Both teams won in their UEFA Champions League quarter-final matches, so confidence is pretty high.

Stats

Man City’s Phil Foden has scored in each of his last three Premier League matches against Liverpool and could become only the second player to net in four straight appearances against them in the competition after Jamie Vardy 

Manchester City have lost only one of their last 12 Premier League home matches against Liverpool (W7 D4), going down 4-1 in Jurgen Klopp’s first top-flight visit to the Etihad in November 2015.

Liverpool are winless in four Premier League games against Man City (D2 L2) – only once in the competition have they had a longer run without a win against them (5 between November 2011 and December 2013).

Liverpool haven’t kept a clean sheet in any of their last 11 Premier League away games against Man City, since a 0-0 draw in February 2010.

Victory for Liverpool will put them top of the Premier League table at the end of a day for the first time since 1 October.

Of the last eight PL meetings between the top two sides to take place within the final 10 matches of the season, the team in second has won seven times (L1), including each of the last five in a row.

Just one point separates the title rivals in the Premier League table, with City holding a marginal edge with eight matches remaining.

Pep v Klopp

Manchester City v Liverpool – Is This It?

Is this it? Will this match determine who will win the Premier League title this season? We cannot know for sure, with 8 matches still to play. The Premier League is an unpredictable league. However, “this is it” in terms of quality expected on the pitch of play. Both teams will match each other man for man. Liverpool will be expressive and Manchester City will also come out to play. It promises to be the most exciting match of the season – We cannot wait.

Predictions?

We expect both teams to score in this game, but it will be hard for anyone to pick a winner.

However, tell us what you think. Where do you see this one going?
