Liverpool welcome leaders Manchester City to Anfield for a crunch Premier League encounter

Liverpool v Man City
Published: Sunday, 7th February 2021 at 3:00 pm

Liverpool host title rivals Manchester City in the pick of the Premier League fixtures on Sunday where a mouthwatering showdown that could have major ramifications on the championship is expected.


The Reds’ recent form has suffered a dip due to their injury crisis at the back but manager Jurgen Klopp will hope to outwit Pep Guardiola on Merseyside.

Liverpool can cut that gap between them and first-place City to four points with a win here. They beat City 3-1 at Anfield last season and earned a 1-1 draw the last time they met in Manchester.

City, however, are in rampant form. They have won each of their last 13 games stretching back to before Christmas and haven’t conceded in any of their last six league outings.

Guardiola can count on a near-fully-fit squad to choose from here and will aim to stifle Liverpool’s makeshift defence from the off. has rounded up everything you need to know about how to watch Liverpool v Man City on TV and online.

Liverpool v Man City team news

Liverpool: With Joe Gomez, Virgil van Dijk and Joel Matip out injured, Klopp must decide whether to stick with a central defensive pairing of Jordan Henderson and Nat Phillips, or draft in one of two January signings in Ben Davies or Ozan Kabak.

Further forward and James Milner may be rested in midfield, while Xherdan Shaqiri could make way for Divock Origi or Sadio Mane, assuming the latter is fit. Naby Keita and Diogo Jota remain injured but Fabio Tavares and Alisson might be fit enough to make the side.

Man City: Guardiola is still without Kevin De Bruyne and Nathan Ake, while Sergio Aguero is unlikely to feature.

However, the boss has Gabriel Jesus back on from after he scored in midweek against Burnley, while Riyad Mahrez and Raheem Sterling will likely complete the forward line.

Our prediction: Liverpool v Man City

Liverpool’s recent form has been miserable and the loss to Brighton in midweek was a reminder of the intensity required to beat any team in this division.

Klopp may be able to welcome back players from injury and draft Kabak into the centre of defence. But this City machine is working smoothly right now and they will surely breach the Anfield goal.

How Liverpool respond remains to be seen. With Mohamed Salah and Roberto Firmino available, the Reds are always a threat. But City could well pinch this and take a giant step towards the title.

Our prediction: Liverpool 1-2 Man City (17/2 at bet365)
