Liverpool has maintained their high-end performance and form in all the played 7 games. Remarkably, The Reds remain undefeated in all these games; winning 6 and drawing in one to make their total points tally to 19. They will come into this game after a disappointing defeat by Napoli and will aim at redeeming themselves in this great matchup.

The Reds are just below the Citizens in the second place but with only a slight goal difference. Naby Keita has been cleared of any serious injury after being forced off in the first half of Liverpool’s 1-0 defeat to Napoli on Wednesday with severe back pain. Mohamed Salah is currently out of form but can Klopp risk dropping last season’s star man for a game of this magnitude? Chamberlain remains out with injury while Divock Origi and Adam Lallana being engaged in this fixture remain a doubt.

Manchester City will come into this game in high spirits after a 4 match unbeaten run in all competitions. They have only lost once in their last 5 games, where they narrowly lost to Lyon in a UEFA Champions League Matchup. They remain on top of the EPL table having gangrened 19 points in the last 7 played matches.

They remain the highest scoring side in the top tier, something that has seen them top the league standings by goal difference. They will certainly come into this away match with high hopes that they will come out with something.
