You would be forgiven for thinking this game doesn’t matter now the Premier League title has been seized, but you would be absolutely wrong.
Manchester City will have long-suspected the title was destined for Anfield, no matter how many times their stars have claimed they were still in the race.
City will have quietly accepted the league was gone a long time ago and turned attention to the Champions League and their 2020/21 comeback plot, and this showdown is a prime opportunity to lay down the gauntlet for next term.
Liverpool fans will bask in the glow of their new addition to a trophy cabinet that has been anything but crowded in recent decades, but will be as determined as City supporters to get one over their rivals on a one-to-one level this week.
Of course, had the title been on the line, the spectacle would’ve been raised higher, but this is still set to be a grudge match for the ages.

Man City v Liverpool team news
Man City: Sergio Aguero is out, but Pep Guardiola showed Gabriel Jesus isn’t a nailed-on starter even without the Argentine’s presence in the squad. Jesus should start, but there’s every chance Raheem Sterling could get the nod to play through the middle.
Fernandinho is suspended following his ‘save’ against Chelsea while Eric Garcia is a doubt.
Liverpool: James Milner, Xherdan Shaqiri and Joel Matip remain sidelined for the Reds but Jurgen Klopp is likely to go unchanged regardless.
Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain could force his way into the starting line-up, but expect more rotation to follow this game rather than during it.
Our prediction: Man City v Liverpool
The world is craving a match between these two sides at full tilt. Will they produce?
Liverpool still have more to play for than City in the league as they aim to smash the 100pt milestone, while City are keeping an eye on the FA Cup and upcoming Champions League.
These sides have produced cracking games in the past few years, and the lack of a crowd means this could be the most level playing field on which they can duel.
City’s central defensive issues – extenuated by the lack of Fernandinho’s bite in midfield or at the back – are worrying, however. As terrific as City are in attack, a shackle-free Liverpool could put on a display of force at the Etihad.
Our prediction: Man City 1-3 Liverpool
