Manchester City will hope to close down the gap between them and the top of the Premier League table as they face fellow title hopefuls, Liverpool, at Etihad on Sunday.
The Reds managed to notch up close wins against troubling and tricky opposition. However, injuries to key players have threatened to derail their title defence, with Jurgen Klopp also dealing with inconsistency in the attack.
Man City Tactics
Pep Guardiola will likely opt for a more defensive choice at the back, which means Nathan Ake should be preferred over Joao Cancelo on the left. Ruben Dias and Aymeric Laporte are almost certainly going to be the central defenders, with the duo having not played during the midweek. Kyle Walker is an automatic choice for the right side, with Ederson in goal.
Ferran Torres should shift from playing a False Nine to the right-wing, with Raheem Sterling deployed on the left. Gabriel Jesus will likely start, with Liam Delap an option off the bench should the Brazilian fail to perform up to the standard.
Probable Lineup (4-3-3): Ederson; Walker, Dias, Laporte, Ake; De Bruyne, Rodri, Foden; Torres, Jesus, Sterling
The 4-2-3-1 setup has worked well so far for Liverpool and Klopp should opt for the same to provide more defensive cover. Jordan Henderson and Georginio Wijnaldum are sure starters as the double pivot.
With Thiago not fully fit, The 4-2-3-1 setup will allow Klopp to retain Firmino, albeit in the number 10 role while also bringing in the in-form Diogo Jota as the forward, with Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah as the other attackers in the lineup. Meanwhile, our analyst predicts a 1-0 win on the favour of Man City.
Probable Lineup (4-2-3-1): Alisson; Alexander-Arnold, Rhys Williams, Gomez, Robertson; Henderson, Wijnaldum; Salah, Firmino, Mane; Jota
