Both of these teams will come into this game off the back of a Champions League clash during the week. Liverpool played away to Porto on Tuesday night, while Manchester City will have met Paris Saint-Germain on the same evening, so there could be some rotation for this clash although the managers will be focused on making sure they don’t lose this game.

Pep Guardiola executed a perfect game plan at Stamford Bridge to ensure a 1-0 victory and the Spaniard has gone from being defensively negligent to actually building from the back, with Ruben Dias and Aymeric Laporte having performed to a high level in front of Ederson this season.

The same couldn’t be said of Liverpool’s defending when drawing 3-3 with Brentford and Jurgen Klopp will have been dismayed by the way the Reds allowed the Bees to come back from a losing position on two occasions.

Virgil van Dijk will ensure that there’s a defensively steady ship back at Fortress Anfield and we’ll go for a low goal count when these sides meet, with a draw not being the worst outcome for either side as they go into the international break.
