Liverpool vs Manchester City: Premier League title showdown looms at Anfield

Liverpool and Manchester City are set to clash in a highly anticipated Premier League match at Anfield on Sunday evening, with both teams vying for the top spot in the league.

Currently leading the table by a single point, Liverpool enter the match following a hard-fought 1-0 victory against Nottingham Forest.

In contrast, Manchester City arrive in formidable form after securing a convincing 3-1 win over Manchester United in their last league fixture.

The reverse fixture earlier in the season resulted in a thrilling 1-1 draw at the Etihad stadium Liverpool’s formidable attacking lineup, spearheaded by the likes of Mohamed Salah and Darwin Núñez, will undoubtedly test Manchester City’s defense, led by Erling Haaland and Phil Foden.

With the title race heating up, Sunday’s encounter promises to be a closely contested battle between two of the Premier League’s elite teams. Jurgen Klopp’s side will need to display their trademark intensity to overcome City’s recent dominance.

Klopp will be forced to select a starting line-up without nine first-team members. Alisson Becker, Trent Alexander-Arnold, Joel Matip, Diogo Jota, Ryan Gravenberch, Curtis Jones, Thiago Alcantara, Stefan Bajcetic and Ben Doak are all definitely unavailable for the Reds.

For Manchester City, Grealish is sidelined with a groin injury that has seen him miss City’s last two games, although he has been dealing with the issue since early February. Doku missed City’s win over Copenhagen on Wednesday night through injury, and it remains to be seen if the forward recovers in time to feature at Anfield.

Matheus Nunes is also a doubt after he suffered a finger injury during the win over Copenhagen. The midfielder, though, appears to remain available for selection heading into the trip to Merseyside.

A victory for Liverpool would extend their lead at the top of the table to four points, while a loss could see them trailing by two points behind Manchester City and Arsenal.

In summary, the Liverpool vs Manchester City match is set to be a captivating showdown between two top-tier teams, offering fans an enthralling display of Premier League football.

Kickoff is 4;45pm.
