Manchester City will host Liverpool in Saturday’s early kick off in the English Premier League seeking revenge from the reverse fixture.
Liverpool, despite having a dismal season, managed to beat Man City 1-0 at Anfield last year courtesy of a Mohamed Salah goal.
Pep Guardiola’s side come into the game on a 6-game winning streak and are second on the table with 61 points, 8 behind leaders Arsenal.
Liverpool on the other hand are in sixth with 42 points after suffering a shock 1-0 defeat to Bournemouth in their last league outing.
City are at an important stage in their season as they endeavor to get their hands on the Premier League, Champions League and FA Cup.
City have only lost just one of their last 13 top-flight meetings against the Reds at the Etihad Stadium and are confident ahead of this clash.
Liverpool are hoping to bounce back from their Champions League exit by completing just their second league double over Man City in 17 seasons.
Though it will be difficult as they have only picked up 12 points from 13 away games this season.
