The top of the table match is here! This will either simplify or complicate the Premier League in standings, with both the teams to gain from a win. In other words, the best attack taking on the best defense in the league this season.
City found their winning ways against 18th placed Southampton in 3-1 win, avoiding a scare. The Blues failing to take advantage of their recent weak fixtures in recent weeks look fragile and out of shape at the back. Pep’s side with free-flowing football has to come up with a way to stop the Liverpool attack.
After last season’s Champions League defeat, the Klopp’s side is playing with a purpose and shows the sign to keep their form at the top. The Reds made Arsenal look like second string team in their merciless victory of 5-1. While currently enjoying the best form in Europe’s top five leagues, the Reds are high on confidence with 9 consecutive EPL wins.
Ederson (GK); Walker, Stones, Laporte, Zinchenko; Bernardo, Fernandinho, Silva, Sterling, Aguero, Sane.
Alisson, Alexander-Arnold, Lovren, Van Dijk, Robertson; Wijnaldum, Henderson; Mane, Firmino, Keita, Salah.
My PlayerzPot XI:

Playing at the home is the only advantage for Blues in their most important game of the season. The defending champions will have to give their all to keep their chances alive in the Premier League.
