Liverpool Possible Starting Lineup: Simon Mignolet, Nathaniel Clyne, Martin Skrtl, Dejan Lovren, Alberto Moreno, Lucas Leiva, Emre Can, Roberto Firmino, Philippe Coutinho, James Milner, Christian Benteke.

Thoughts From Both Camps

“One of the most important things in important games is to have a cold mind, not a cold heart but a cold mind. It’s so important and I hope we can do it.”

– Manuel Pellegrini, Manchester City.

“Manchester City have a really good team, but it’s not important for this one game if Sterling played here last year and does well, or [Kevin] De Bruyne or Yaya Toure. It’s much more important to think about our game so they cannot play their best football and we can play our best football. That’s what I’m interested in.”

– Jurgen Klopp, Liverpool.

Contributor’s Pick

According to Head-2-Head statistics, Manchester City have won 27% of its matches against Liverpool. It would be an extremely difficult away trip for the Kops as Manchester City have won twelve of their last thirteen games at home, in which they have scored a minimum of two goals. In their last four matches against Liverpool in all competitions, Manchester City have scored at least two goals.

Liverpool have won only once in their last five matches, even losing to Crystal Palace before the international break. Based on current form, Manchester City should win comfortably with a 2-0 scoreline being the most probable one.
