|1 – 1|
In the last three years in the Premier League, Manchester City and Liverpool have always been the two main rivals in the championship race. Therefore, the clashes between these two teams are always waiting for the fans. In the wake of Chelsea’s strong rise, any team that wins three points in the next game will have a big chance of breaking up in the championship race.
Manchester City as a stalker.
Against Liverpool at home, Manchester City will play the chase. Ranked 10th with 11 points from six games, it seems Pep Guardiola’s side are not really warming up. If they win the match, they will have 11 points, just two points from Liverpool’s lead and the next game will be a great opportunity for the Citizen to assert their position.
Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City retain the identity that fans are accustomed to. The identity here is shown in the play of holding the ball a lot, overwhelming the opponent with extremely fast-turning situations and identity is also shown in the way of spending money without regret in this team. Entering the new season, the pressure of winning the Premier League for Pep Guardiola is no small thing, along with huge expectations in the UEFA Champions League, where Manchester City have never been themselves in big games.
Prior to this match, Pep was still unable to use his key card on the attacking line, Kun Aguero. But Gabriel Jesus’ timely return will help Pep solve somewhat of the problem of finding the goal. Manchester City’s current form is also impressive as they show absolute strength in their group within the framework of the UEFA Champions League. Kevin De Bruyne remains outstanding as usual and the Belgian star promises to bring victory to The Citizen.
The king return
It’s so hard to beat Liverpool at the moment.
With all respects to Manchester City, Liverpool are probably the best team in England in the last two seasons and that continues to show this season. Although the 2018–2019 season, Liverpool created a very attractive championship race with Manchester City themselves and as a result the Manchester City team won because of sub-index. That could prove to be how strong Liverpool have come back from Manchester City’s dominate with back-to-back league titles.
Entering the new season, Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool have become even more feared. Still the identity is the fiery pressing play, the attacking line is always the fulcrum of this team but increasingly, people see the doggedness and bravery of a champion in Liverpool.
At the moment, Liverpool have lost Virgil Van Dijk all season, losing their Dutch partner Matip, who replaced Matip as Fabinho. It would have weakened the red half of Merseyside but Jurgen Klopp didn’t think so. The proof is that they are leading the Premier League and putting one foot in the knockout stages of the Champions League by destroying Atalanta by five goals in Italy.
The Big Match against Manchester City is likely to be difficult for the Kings of England. But the bravery of the champion always has a way to win.
