Despite an underwhelming start to the season, Jurgen Klopp's Liverpool will like to create some problems for the blues of Manchester. Meanwhile, Manchester City comes as a favourite for this game and will try to not lose any further ground in the title race.
Throughout the whole season so far, Liverpool's high defensive line has been exposed on plenty of occasions. Further, Mohamed Salah and Diogo Jota's mediocre performances have also caused many issues for Jurgen Klopp.
As a result, we fancy the chances of Man City coming out on top of this game and eventually clinching all three points. However, a tough battle from Merseyside is undoubtedly arriving as the Reds would like to increase their chances of ending in the top four.
