Liverpool and Manchester City are going to face each other on 25th of November at the Etihad. Both have been going through an impressive season this time. While Man City lead the table with 28 points in 12 games,Liverpool are just a point behind them with as many games played. Moreover, the coming clash between both the clubs will give us the latest table topper of the league.
Manchester City are performing their best as they do every season. And that’s clearly visible as they dominate every game they play. However, it seems like Jurgen Klopp and his men are chasing the blues. Learning from the mistakes of the previous season, the Reds are determined to win the league. Furthermore, missing out on Champions League spot last season has given them extra amount of motivation required to fight for the best.
However, things might not be easy for the hosts as their squad is having injury issues related to their key players. Firstly, John Stones is expected to be out of the squad. He has picked up a muscular injury. Stones has also been left out of the current England squad due to injury. Moreover, Nathan Ake has also withdrawn from the Netherlands squad due to an unspecified injury. Having 2 of the key defenders out is gonna raise problems for Pep Guardiola.
Moving over to midfield, Kevin De Bruyne is yet to Recover from his injury. He suffered a hamstring injury in the inaugural game of the season. The Belgian international is expected to return to the field in early 2024, as per liverpoolecho.
Liverpool and Manchester City would do everything possible to win this high voltage thriller.
Although Man City are having injuries within their squad, they can still turn the game upside down. They have been doing that since a while now. Moreover, the presence of attackers like Erling Haaland and Phil Foden is the nightmare for any defensive unit. Liverpool have to watch out for them.
On the other hand, a win for the Reds would see them grab the top spot. This would further boost their confidence. Moreover, this confidence will help them perform better in upcoming matches as well.
