Manchester City might not be where they would have hoped on the Premier League points table but will be looking to make a statement when they host champions Liverpool on Sunday.
The Pep Guardiola-coached Manchester City have had a rather unusual start to this season. With three wins from six games so far, Man City are placed 10th on the Premier League table with 11 points.
Football fans can watch Manchester City vs Liverpool on live streaming and on TV in India.
Meanwhile, reigning EPL champions Liverpool too have found the going tough. The team made a nervy start with a 4-3 win over newly-promoted Leeds United in its opener. And though the Reds did well to dispatch Chelsea and Arsenal next, a shocking 7-2 loss to Aston Villa was an eye-opener for Jurgen Klopp and his men.
The loss at Villa Park was followed by Liverpool’s mainstay defender Virgil van Dijk being ruled out for the season after sustaining an Anterior Cruciate Ligament (ACL) injury against Everton.
Though Brazilian midfielder Fabinho did well in his make-shift role to fill Van Dijk’s void, he went on to sustain an injury in the UEFA Champions League match against FC Midtjylland. As a result, Liverpool are dealing with some serious problems in their defence.
Klopp’s plan of fielding inexperienced defenders Nathaniel Phillips and Rhys Williams has helped so far. But the team’s biggest test will be against a Manchester City side that will be eager to exploit the Liverpool weakness with their top-class attack.
Manchester City will be relying on established names in Gabriel Jesus, Raheem Sterling and Riyad Mahrez upfront while the ever-reliable Kevin de Bruyne and young sensation Phil Foden will look to dictate the play in the middle of the park.
