Team News

Man City
Liverpool
  • Manchester City suffered a handful of injury scares over the international break, with Erling Haaland being forced off against the Faroe Islands last week.
  • The Norwegian, however, should be fit to start here, but the likes of Mateo Kovacic and John Stones are ruled out.
  • Nathan Ake, Matheus Nunes and Ederson will all have to be assessed if they are to play a part.
  • Kevin De Bruyne remains sidelined with a long-term injury.
  • Liverpool continue to be without Thiago Alcantara, Andy Robertson and Stefan Bajcetic, while the likes of Curtis Jones, Joe Gomez and Ibrahima Konate are all doubtful here.
  • Ryan Gravenberch, if cleared to play, should get the nod to start alongside Dominik Szoboszlai and Alexis Mac Allister in midfield.

Prediction

  • The Premier League's top two meet in what is shaping up to be one of the most exciting matches of the season so far.
  • With 12 games played, Manchester City sit top of the table, but only one point ahead of both Liverpool and Arsenal.
  • After five consecutive wins in all competitions, City were forced to settle for a draw against Chelsea last time out in an eight-goal thriller at Stamford Bridge.
  • Liverpool continued their perfect start to the season at home with a sixth league victory when they swept aside Brentford before the international break.
  • Each side won their home fixture against the other last season, with City putting four past Liverpool the last time they visited the Etihad, back in April.
  • City, however, have not won consecutive league matches against Saturday's opponents since 1937.
