The Premier League is back in our lives once again following the last two-week international break of the year. Over the course of the next month and a half, football fans are preparing for a barrage of fixtures coming our way from English football’s top flight as the Christmas period awaits. Today, we’ll be taking a look at a huge clash between Manchester City and Liverpool.Manchester City Form Guide
While Manchester City may be recognised as one of the best teams in world football, that doesn’t mean they are immune to criticism or complacency. This season has proven that there are a few wrinkles that need to be ironed out by Pep Guardiola and with so much expectation on their shoulders as a club, it’ll be interesting to see how they cope with the pressure.
Following a few questionable results, City responded as they often do - with dominance. They rattled off wins over Brighton, Young Boys, Manchester United, Bournemouth and Young Boys again, before coming up short in an epic 4-4 draw with Chelsea.Liverpool Form Guide
Liverpool are a strange club to watch right now because while they have the squad and infrastructure necessary to win some major trophies, there’s always a slip-up or complication waiting around the next corner. As we get ready for an incredibly busy period, Jurgen Klopp will be praying that the injury bug doesn’t come back to bite them once again.
After wins over Toulouse, Nottingham Forest and Bournemouth, the Reds were held to a surprising 1-1 draw by Luton. From there, they were beaten 3-2 by Toulouse, before rebounding with a comfortable 3-0 victory over Brentford.Match Prediction
Liverpool are going to give as good as they get against City and that much feels obvious. In equal measure, it feels near enough impossible to think that this game will go off without some kind of controversial decision, and we have a feeling it’ll favour the hosts in a Manchester City win.
