After almost two weeks of the international break, club football is back in action with its final phase. In a couple of months time, the race to the title will be over and we will have a clear winner from the different football leagues in Europe. We will witness the return of club football with the clash between Manchester City and Liverpool on Saturday. This is the perfect way to restart club football and bring on the excitement back.
Manchester City are currently at the 2nd spot in the Premier League Point table with 61 points and 19 wins. They are 8 points behind the league leaders Arsenal and 11 points ahead of Manchester United who are in the 3rd spot.
Liverpool have struggled throughout the season this year. They are currently at the 6th spot on the points table with 42 points and 12 wins. The top bookmakers in India have amazing EPL odds for you to bet on.
Manchester City have been dominating the Premier League for the past 5 years. They have been either in the second spot or have won the title under the management of Pep Guardiola. Their last fixture was against Burnley for the FA Cup quarter-finals. The Citizens showcased their dominance again by winning the fixture by 6-0. Erling Haaland scored another hat trick with Juan Alvarez scoring a double.
There is still doubt about Haaland’s appearance on Saturday because of his groin injury and Phil Foden will be out of action because of his appendix treatment.
Predicted Lineup: Ederson, Walker, Dias, Laporte, Rodri, Lewis, Mahrez, De Bruyne, Alvarez, Mahrez, Grealish
The Reds have witnessed a sudden dip in their overall performance this year. As of now, they are struggling to confirm their spot in the CL next season. Before the break, Liverpool were eliminated from the Champions League by Real Madrid. The elimination was not a surprise as Liverpool already lost hope after the result of the first leg. Jurgen Klopp will be still hoping to make it to the top four in EPL.
Calvin Ramsay and Luis Diaz are still out of action because of their respective injuries.
Predicted Lineup: Alisson, Alexander-Arnold, Konate, Van Dijk, Robertson, Fabinho, Henderson, Salah, Jota, Gakpo, Nunez
Manchester City are currently in their best shape but the bumpy ride of Liverpool is not coming to an end. The Champions League exit will affect the overall confidence of the team and hence we predict a win for Manchester City to narrowly win this match.
