A fight for glory… and records! Although Liverpool has been officially recognized as the new Premier League Title holder, they will want to be officially crowned by the last title holder as well. Like a beauty pageant. What is more, Liverpool will be seeking to make the world forget about Manchester City’s outstanding performance of last year by taking their points title away from them as well.
Pep Guardiola was long seen as the best coach today. Jurgen Klöpp has become his nemesis, a title that once belonged to Jose Mourinho. There is however one difference in this comparison. Pep usually had the best of Jose, but he has less success in his games against Jurgen. Losing the title will be one thing for the citizens, but losing their legacy will be another. Even though the title race is played, there is still enough at stake for Manchester City vs Liverpool! Let’s dive in the prediction shall we!
Manchester City Liverpool Predictions
Unfortunately for the blue side of Manchester, they will be welcoming their visitors without Sergio Aguero (injured) and without Fernandinho ( received a suspension of two matches against Chelsea), meanwhile Liverpool is entering the pitch armed to the teeth, without any injuries or suspensions. Although Joel Matip and James Milner are question marks for this game, returning from minor injuries.
Last November, The Reds took out the citizens 3-1. But the game was a closer one than what the scoreboard wants us to remember. We expect a similar game this time around, with the game of Liverpool against Leicester and Manchester City losing for the eighth time this season, Liverpool will take this match by a small margin.
We expect to see a lot of respect from both sides, so it won’t be a big score. At least, that is our prediction.
