The Premier League is back on track! And with new champion Liverpool and first pursuer Man City. The worst fears of all Liverpool fans, a season break, are not true – the season is over. After the Reds draw against city rivals Everton, Liverpool had to wait a tick longer for the final title of the Premier League. Ultimately, Liverpool virtually became champion on the couch – when Manchester City lost at Chelsea. Now there is the gigantic duel in the Etihad at best for prestige. Man City and Liverpool kick off at 9:15 p.m.
Manchester City – Liverpool compared: Reds are ahead
There have only been two clashes between Manchester City and Liverpool in the Premier League in the past year and a half. In January 2019, the Citizens beat the Reds 2-1, paving the way for winning the title at the time. The last clash increased in November when Liverpool defeated Man City 3-1 and extended the Guardiola 11 lead to nine points. The Liverpudlians also have the edge in the overall balance: 81 duels won the Reds, 45 times City kept the upper hand – 41 times there were draws.
The form curve of City and Liverpool
Jürgen Klopp’s team did it! Liverpool won the English title for the first time since 1990. Pep Guardiola’s men are 23 points behind, but they are (almost) no longer to be pushed out of second place. City lost to Chelsea at Stamford Bridge – it was their eighth loss this season. So now there’s the superstars in the Citzizens stadium. Alone, the fans are missing! In England, too, spectators are currently not admitted to the stadiums due to the corona pandemic.
Personnel: Sané fit again
Leroy Sané is back in the Citizens squad after a ten-month injury break. So far, it has only been enough for a short stake in the 5-0 win against Burnley. Apart from central defender Eric García (head injury), Guardiola can draw on the full. Klopp enters the game with a similar injury-free squad: only midfield talent Ben Woodburn is out due to a broken foot.
