Man City Must Win to Keep Liverpool within Touching Distance
Man City dominated the entire 90-minutes of their trip to Sheffield United last weekend but only managed to score a single goal. Former Sheffield United player, Kyle Walker, scored what turned out to be the winning goal for City in the 28th-minute, drilling a low shot from outside the area into the bottom corner. Sterling had chances to put the game to bed in the second half, but thankfully for the visitors, his misses weren't costly.
Liverpool went behind at home to West Ham in the 10th-minute, Pablo Fornals getting the goal. However, the hosts went in level at the interval after Salah converted a 42nd-minute penalty. The game looked like it might be heading for a draw until Liverpool's recent signing Jota popped up again from the bench to score the all-important winner 5-minutes from time.
Man City head into Sunday's clash as the form favourites with four wins and two draws from their last six matches in all competitions. Liverpool have also won four times during that period, but drew with Everton and lost at Aston Villa. The league table suggests that the visitors are the favourites to win though, as Liverpool sit nine places and 5pts clear of Man City. However, City have played one game fewer than their guests, and a win this weekend would reduce the gap to just 2pts.
Head to Head Record
Only one of the last six meetings between these two clubs has ended goalless, and matches between the pair usually produced lots of goalmouth action. Man City have won four of their last six clashes with Liverpool, including a 4-0 victory the last time the clubs locked horns in July. Man City haven't lost at home to Liverpool in the Premier League since 2015, with City winning three times and the pair playing out two draws since then.
Sergio Aguero, Benjamin Mendy, and Fernando Luiz Roza have been ruled out of Sunday's clash through injury. Gabriel Jesus could return to the side following a thigh injury but will likely face a late fitness test.
Liverpool will be without the services of Fabio, van Dijk, and Oxlade-Chamberlain this weekend. Defender Joel Matip and midfielder Thiago Alcantara are both rated at 50/50 to make the trip to the Etihad. Naby Keita and Konstantinos Tsimikas are less likely to feature as they gradually make their return from injury.
