Liverpool vs Man City LIVE: Stream, TV channel, kick-off time and team news for massive Premier League match | The Sun
16th October 2022

LIVERPOOL take on Manchester City in a huge Premier League clash TODAY.

The Reds have been in less than stellar form this season and lost their last game 3-2 against Arsenal.

City, on the other hand, look favourites to retain their title once again, though they're still sitting a place below the Gunners in the league.

Erling Haaland has taken to English football like a duck to water, bagging a whopping 15 goals in his first nine games.

Liverpool will need to be at their absolute best if they're to keep him from adding to his impressive tally.

But defensively, Jurgen Klopp's side have failed to impress this season, though they can find some solace in a 7-1 thumping over Rangers in the Champions League to boost their confidence ahead of the game.

    Pep's party in full swing

    Erling Haaland has 15 Premier League goals already, equalling the final total of City's top scorer in the division last season, Kevin De Bruyne.

    De Bruyne has provided 9 assists this season, surpassing his tally from 2021/22, no player has ever reached double figures in assists in their opening 10 Premier League games of a season.

    Phil Foden can score in four successive league appearances for the first time.

    A familiar foe comes to town

    For the past five years, in the Premier League, the title has been a two-horse race between Liverpool and Man City.

    Jurgen Klopp insists that today's game will not decide the destiny of the title this time around.

    With his side a long way off the pace at the top, this must be seen as a 'must not lose' game at the very least.

    One night in Glasgow 

    Liverpool bounced back from their defeat against Arsenal with a 7-1 thrashing of Rangers in Glasgow. 

    Mohamed Salah set a new Champions League record when he came off the bench to score a six-minute hat-trick. 

    Darwin Nunez, Harvey Elliott and in-form Roberto Firmino (2) all scored against Rangers after Jurgen Klopp’s side went 1-0 down in the game at Ibrox in an intimidating atmosphere.

    City blowing away all-comers 

    Man City are on a club record run of 22 away league games without defeat since losing 1-0 at Spurs on the opening weekend of last season. 

    Their tally of 33 goals after 9 Premier League games equals their own record from 2011/12. 

    Pep’s side are unbeaten in 21 top-flight matches, with their only defeat in 37 games coming at home against Tottenham in February.

    Nightmare on Anfield Road 

    Jurgen Klopp’s side have had a dreadful start to the season by their own high standards and start the day 13 points behind the visitors. 

    Liverpool suffered their second defeat of the season last weekend, going down to a 3-2 defeat against Arsenal at The Emirates. 

    Ten points is their lowest points return after eight games in a decade, in 2012/13 they had nine points and went on to finish seventh.

    Welcome to Liverpool vs Man City 

    Liverpool welcome reigning champions Man City to Anfield this afternoon with these two teams having been in a different league in their titanic struggles between one another for the last five seasons. 

    The Anfield treatment room is well-stocked ahead of today’s game with Arthur Melo, Luis Diaz, Joel Matip, Trent Alexander-Arnold, Naby Keita an Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain all filling the treatment tables. 

    Andrew Robertson made an appearance from the bench against Rangers and is expected to replace Kostas Tsimikas at left-back. 

    With news filtering through that Ibrahima Konate has picked up a muscle injury, James Milner is likely to have to slot into right-back, allowing Joe Gomez to play at centre-back alongside Virgil van Dijk. 

    Considering today’s opposition, Jurgen Klopp may well revert to his 4-3-3 formation for fear of being overrun in midfield. 

    Man City have nowhere near the injury concerns of their rivals and Pep Guardiola has confirmed that Erling Haaland should be fine for the fixture after being as a precaution midweek. 

    This game has come too soon for the trio of John Stones, Kalvin Phillips and Kyle Walker. 

    Aymeric Laporte is expected to drop down to the bench with Ruben Dias and Nathan Ake to partner up in defence. 

    Phil Foden and Bernardo Silva are set to earn recalls to the starting line-up, which could see Ikay Gundogan demoted to the bench.
