Liverpool vs Manchester City : Premier League pick, Liverpool vs Manchester City TV channel, live stream, watch online, time It’s No. 1 vs. No. 4 on Sunday in a massive match for Premier League positioning
The biggest game of the Premier League season is just hours away. No. 1 Liverpool takes on No. 4 Manchester City on Sunday in a battle of the league’s top two teams. This match was set to be No. 1 against No. 2, but Leicester City’s win over Arsenal on Saturday puts them in second,
Liverpool: This is a statement game for a team that has never won the Premier League. A win here would put them nine points clear, and though it’s still really early, it would give them even more momentum entering the international break. The key will be playing smart in possession in the middle of the field. Any sloppy play could give City the chances on the counter that could decide the game.
Man. City: The big question for City is how Claudio Bravo will do in goal with Ederson out due to injury. Bravo played a bit in the Champions League at Atalanta in the middle of the week only to then be sent off with a straight red card. He should be fresh, but will his confidence level be there after a poor start to the week?Liverpool vs Man City, Premier League: What time is kick-off today, what TV channel is it on and what is our prediction?
Joel Matip will miss Sunday’s match due to a knee injury he aggravated against Manchester United last month, but Jordan Henderson – who missed the Champions League win over Genk due to illness – should be involved. Sunday’s match might be one too soon for Xherdan Shaqiri, who is recovering from a calf injury, while Nathaniel Clyne is a long-term absentee.
The summer signing did not take part in the full session ahead of their Champions League match at Atalanta. Long-term absentees Leroy Sane and Aymeric Laporte are still unavailable. What are they saying?
I am not too sure if I want to put oil on the fire. I am not interested in these kind of things. And I promise not to mention tactical fouls.
That is maybe already too much. I can say Sadio is not a diver. There was a situation in the Aston Villa game where he got contact and went down. Maybe it was not a penalty but there was contact. It’s not like jumping over a leg and [acting] like he hit you or whatever. All the other penalties were penalties because he was in that situation.
I am 100 per cent sure if something like this happened for Manchester City they would want to have a penalty, because somebody kicked their player in the box and that’s a penalty.
My son and my daughter, all the time when they [Liverpool] win in the last minutes, ask me how lucky, how lucky they are.
I say at the time, ‘It’s not lucky’. What Liverpool has done last season and this season many, many times is because they’ve this incredible quality and this incredible talent to fight until the end.
That’s why I said to my players – not just my son and my daughter – that it is not lucky. If it happens once or twice in a life then, yes, but this many – maybe 10 or 12 or 13 times?
In the 94th minute like it was [in their win] against Leicester, it was a penalty, it was ‘Waaaaaaaah’. It was wow.
Far away from my intention was to say Sadio is this type of player (who likes to dive) because I admire him a lot. For Jurgen it [the Leicester decision] is a penalty, for the referee it was a penalty, for the VAR it was a penalty. I was the wrong guy – or maybe not, I don’t know.
