Our prediction for this Premier League match:
All eyes will be on Etihad Stadium when Manchester City and Liverpool face each other in the Premier League derby. Man City are eager to regain the domestic trophy, and, following a slow start to the season, they have been showing signs of improvement of late. The Citizens aim to build on a hard-fought 1-0 win over Sheffield United, and they should take advantage of Liverpool’s anything but splendid form. The Reds did defeat West Ham 2-1 at the weekend, but injured centre-back Virgil van Dijk was sorely missed in the Anfield clash.
Jurgen Klopp’s troops have yet to find their best form in the 2020/21 season, which is probably the main reason why we are tempted to put our money on the star-studded hosts. Kun Aguero remains in the recovery room, but fellow attacker Gabriel Jesus could recover in time to face the Reds. Liverpool, on the other hand, should welcome Matip, Thiago, and Keita back to the squad, while Fabinho, Chamberlain, and aforementioned Van Dijk are definitely out of contention.
