Liverpool v Manchester City: Premier League – live | premier league

Key events

Full time scores

  • Aston Villa 0-2 Chelsea

  • Manchester United 0-0 Newcastle

  • Southampton 1-1 West Ham

Arsenal were leading 1-0 at Elland Road in a game delayed by around half an hour due to a power failure.

“The return of Diogo Jota didn’t generate a lot of interest, but it brings something different,” says Matt Dony. “And it’s pleasantly sharp.” A little aggro with City’s defense wouldn’t hurt. It’s as positive as it gets, though. I expect an away win. I can’t say how much I love Milner, but that sounds like bad news.

He is on the bench

Liverpool tactics There are suggestions that Fabinho will play at centre-back, where he has excelled during the Covid season. This would allow Joe Gomez to play at right-back and James Milner in midfield. But if so, why play Milner ahead of Jordan Henderson?

We will find out soon enough.

James Milner, who was roasted by Phil Foden in this game last season, will again play as an emergency right-back for Liverpool. Joe Gomez moves onto the pitch to cover the injured Ibrahima Konate. Darwin Nunez, Jordan Henderson and Trent Alexander-Arnold are on the bench, and it looks like Jurgen Klopp is back to 4-1-2-3/4-3-3.

No big surprises on the City side. Ilkay Gundogan is preferred over Jack Grealish which should mean Bernardo Silva moves into the top three.

Liverpool (4-1-2-3) Alisson; Milner, Gomez, van Dijk, Robertson; Fabinho; Elliott, Thiago; Salah, Firmino, Jota.
Subs: Kelleher, Henderson, Jones, Tsimikas, Nunez, Carvalho, Bajcetic, Phillips, Alexander-Arnold

Manchester City (4-1-2-3) Ederson, Cancelo, Akanji, Dias, Ake; Rodri; De Bruyne, Gundogan; Bernardo, Haaland, Foden.
Replacements: Ortega Moreno, Grealish, Alvarez, Gomez, Laporte, Mahrez, Palmer, Lewis, Wilson-Esbrand.

Hello, good afternoon and welcome. The last time Liverpool played Manchester City in the Premier League was both a title decider and – or so we thought – a dress rehearsal for the ultimate Champions League final. Today it’s 12th against 2nd, but it’s still the best game in English football, maybe in world football.

Liverpool’s peculiar start to the season gives today’s game a different tinge. It’s a matter of pride as well as points, certainly for Liverpool. They want to show that they are still relevant, still the toughest opponent Pep Guardiola has ever faced. But if City win and are 16 points clear of Liverpool, many people will tell you that the rivalry is a thing of the past.

City have a desperate record at Anfield, with just one win since 2003. But those games were all before the beast. Erling Haaland’s battle with the imperious but out of form Virgil van Dijk adds another layer of intrigue to an already enticing game. It’s been less than three months since Liverpool overpowered City in the Community Shield and Haaland had a little stink. Many things have changed since then.

To start up 4:30 p.m.
