Liverpool will play Manchester City in the English Premier League. These are the top two teams in the League and both Manchester City and Liverpool will be desperate to win to ensure they can secure a lead at the top of the ladder.

Liverpool enters this match following a tough week where they drew against Chelsea in the Premier League and lost to Napoli in the Champions League. The biggest issue for Liverpool has been their strikers as the team has only managed to score one goal in their last two matches. The likes of Muhammad Salah, Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino have all been struggling and that has been a massive disadvantage for the team. Liverpool will be at home for this match and the team will hope that the Anfield crowd can revive the scoring ability in the strikers.

On the other side of the coin, Manchester City have won both of their matches this week as they beat Hoffenheim in the Champions League and Brighton in the Premier League. Sergio Aguero has been in exceptional form as the Argentine has found the back of the net in both games. The defense has also shown great skill as Manchester City only conceded 1 goal in total in both matches. It will be a challenge for Manchester City to beat Liverpool away from home but considering how well the team is playing, they have a very good chance to get the job done.

This should be a very good match as we will get to witness great players like David Silva, Sadio Mane and Bernardo Silva playing on the same pitch. As far as the result is concerned, I am going to pick a draw. Liverpool is at home while Manchester City is in better form. The Anfield crowd should lift Liverpool after a tough week to get a point.
