Manchester City Vs Liverpool Preview: Reds Look To Extend Title Lead Against Manchester City
Liverpool will look to extend their lead on the Premier League table when they face Manchester City at the Etihad Stadium Sunday. Both teams are coming into the game on the back of comfortable Champions Leaugue wins. The defending champion currently top the table and are five points ahead of 10th placed City.
However, despite their strong recent form in the top flight and the Champions League, Jurgen Klopp continues to see a number of his star men spend time in the treatment room which might have an effect on Sunday’s game at the Etihad.
Gabriel Jesus is available again for City after scoring on his return against Olympiakos on Tuesday.
However, Sergio Aguero, Fernandinho, and Benjamin Mendy all remain sidelined with muscle injuries and will not be included against the Reds.
Naby Keita and Joel Matip were back in the matchday squad for Liverpool’s midweek win over Atalanta, but Thiago Alacantara is a doubt for Sunday’s clash.
The midfielder had not returned to training before Tuesday’s Champions League game.
Fabinho, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, and Virgil Van Dijk will all miss the trip to the Etihad.
MANCHESTER CITY :Ederson Walker, Dias, Laporte, Cancelo; De Bruyne, Rodrigo, Foden; Mahrez, Torres, Sterling.
Liverpool: Alisson; Alexander-Arnold, Gomez, Joel Matip, Robertson; Henderson (C), Wijnaldum; Jota, Salah, Firmino, Mané.
