MATCH PREVIEW

Liverpool face Manchester City in the English Premier League at Anfield on Sunday. The match has huge title implications, as the two sides are the two favorites to win the league this season. 

Liverpool are currently placed at the top of the league table 31 points, six ahead of third-placed Manchester City, who can climb to second with a win Sunday. The home side are on an impressive run of form of late, with seven wins in their last eight matches in all competitions. City are also on an impressive run of form, with six wins in their last eight matches in all competition, with just one defeat.

Both teams have three victories in their past eight encounters in all competitions.

EXPECTED LINEUPS

​Liverpool: Alisson Becker, Trent Alexander-Arnold, Dejan Lovren, Virgil van Dijk, Andrew Robertson, Fabinho, Jordan Henderson, Georginio Wijnaldum, Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane, Roberto Firmino

Manchester City:​ Claudio Bravo, Benjamin Mendy, John Stones, Fernandinho, Joao Cancelo, Ilkay Gundogan, Bernardo Silva, Kevin De Bruyne, Riyad Mahrez, Raheem Sterling, Sergio Aguero

COMBINED XI

PLAYER RECOMMENDATIONS

Defender: Virgil van Dijk (8.5 Cr): One of the best players in the world and arguably the best at his position, van Dijk has been worth all £75 million that Liverpool paid Southampton back in January 2018. His work along Liverpool's back line has made them an excellent defensive team, and manager Jurgen Klopp will be relying on van Dijk to come up big against a tremendous Man City attack.

Midfielder: Kevin De Bruyne (10 Cr): De Bruyne is one of the best midfielders in the world, and he's having an excellent season after missing most of last's due to injury. He leads the Premier League with nine assists, five more than any other player, and he'll be a key piece for manager Pep Guardiola's plans to break down the Liverpool defence.

Striker: Sergio Aguero (11 Cr): Aguero has been one of the most prolific strikers since joining Manchester City back in the summer of 2011, and he is fully expected to lead an attacking line that will look to find small holes in the Liverpool defensive strategy Sunday.

Captain: Kevin De Bruyne

Vice-Captain: Sadio Mane
