Man City vs Liverpool Lineups and Last Match

Man City

Manchester City's trip to Stamford Bridge last time out proved to be even more action-packed than anyone could have predicted. City took the lead through a Haaland penalty but Chelsea replied with two goals of their own.

Akanji put the ball into the back of the net in first-half stoppage-time to ensure the clubs went in level at the interval, and early in the second half, Haaland fired the visitors in front for the second time.

Once again, Chelsea responded well, equalising via Jackson in the 67th minute, but a goal from Rodri late on looked to have won the game for Guardiola's men.

However, the game would end all square thanks to a dramatic stoppage-time penalty for Chelsea, which former Man City player Palmer converted to make the final scoreline 4-4.

De Bruyne and Stones have been ruled out of this weekend's match against Liverpool and there are concerns over the fitnesses of Nunes, Ake, Gomez and Kovacic.

Predicted Lineup – Ederson (GK), Walker, Dias, Akanji, Gvardiol, Silva, Rodri, Foden, Haaland, Doku & Álvarez 

Liverpool

Klopp's men made light work of Brentford at Anfield in the Reds' last Premier League match. A goal from Salah put the home side 1-0 up at the break and the Egyptian scored again shortly after the hour mark before Jota found the back of the net in the 74th minute to wrap up a comfortable 3-0 victory.

Mac Allister missed the Brentford game due to a suspension but is available for selection this weekend. However, Thiago, Robertson and Bajecetic have all been ruled out through injury.

Predicted Lineup – Alisson (GK), Matip, van Dijk, Tsimikas, Alexander-Arnold, Mac Allister, Szoboszlai, Salah, Jota, Gakpo & Núñez

Player to Watch: Erling Haaland

Haaland picked up a knock whilst on international duty but is expected to be available for Saturday's big game against Liverpool.

Haaland has made another impressive start to the season, and his form right now makes him deadly to any defence he comes up against. The Norwegian star has scored 11 goals in his last ten appearances for club and country, so you wouldn't bet against the young forward adding to that tally this weekend.

City have won their last two meetings with Liverpool, scoring seven goals in the process. Whilst Haaland can only claim one of those goals, the striker has scored at least two goals in five of his last nine matches, so the Liverpool defence better be prepared to go up against a striker at the top of his game.
