Manchester City will host Liverpool in the Premier League at the Etihad Stadium. Both sides will hope to win the match as the Blues look forward to reducing their tally to five points against current leaders Arsenal both fighting for the title whereas Liverpool is pushing towards a Champions League spot after a lackluster season.
Man City comes with great morale after winning their previous six matches including a thrashing of Burnley in the FA Cup and RB Leipzig in the Champions League which saw their further progress into the latter stages of the competition. Liverpool on the other hand has had two defeats in a row losing to Real Madrid and relegation-threatened Bournemouth right after annihilating Manchester United 7-0 in the English flight.
They have been two of the heavyweights of the competition for the past few years dominating the Premier League and imposing a serious threat to each other. One will more likely be the runners-up whereas the other becomes the Champions of England. The hosts have a great record in the competition for the past five years winning four of them whereas the Reds have one to their name.

Manchester City and Liverpool in the Premier League 2022-23 season so far
The two heavyweights have met each other 51 times with which Manchester City has won 11 matches and Liverpool with 21 wins while drawing 19 matches. Liverpool has won 19 titles the most recent coming in the 2019-20 season while the Blues have won eight titles. The Blues have been a dominant force since their financial backing and Pep Guardiola‘s appointment and Liverpool revived under Jurgen Klopp.
The Blues won the match where they last met in the Carabao Cup winning 3-2. However, Liverpool has a better Head to Head record in the last five matches as the Reds have won three while drawing one. It is without a doubt going to be a feisty run of affairs.
Liverpool v Manchester City: Possible eleven
The recent thrashing of Burnley and RB Leipzig by the Blues will encourage Pep Guardiola to start their best performers during the match against the respective clubs though there are fitness concerns about their striker Erling Haaland who was their standout performer while Liverpool will probably start with their strongest lineup despite their inconsistent performances.
Man City’s predicted XI: Ederson Moraes, Kyle Walker, John Stones, Ruben Dias, Nathan Ake, Rodri, Kevin De Bruyne, Bernardo Silva, Riyad Mahrez, Jack Grealish, Erling Haaland.
Liverpool’s predicted XI: Alisson Becker, Trent Alexander-Arnold, Ibrahima Konate, Virgil Van Dijk, Andrew Robertson, Fabinho, Jordan Henderson, Harvey Elliott, Mohamed Salah, Cody Gakpo, Darwin Nunez.
