Man City vs Liverpool: Premier League – LIVE!

As for Man City, Guardiola’s main aim may well be the Champions League – but Liverpool’s title procession last season will have stung the Catalan coach.

It is still early days in the title race, though Guardiola has already warned his players that every point will count with memories of their single-point 2018/19 title triumph over Liverpool still fresh in the memory.

Both sides have shown defensive weaknesses this term, so it could be a high-scoring affair at the Etihad.

Liverpool early team news

Thiago Alcantara is not ready for the trip to the Etihad.

The Spaniard, left out of his country’s forthcoming international matches, has missed the last five games with a knee problem.

In-form forward Diogo Jota is fit after a knock in the midweek Champions League win over Atalanta and his hat-trick in that match means he is pushing Roberto Firmino for a starting place, while centre-back Joel Matip could come back in for the first time since mid-September.

Liverpool provisional squad: Alisson, Alexander-Arnold, Gomez, Matip, Robertson, Henderson, Wijnaldum, Milner, Salah, Firmino, Mane, Adrian, N Williams, R Williams, Phillips, Tsimikas, Keita, Shaqiri, Jones, Jota, Origi, Minamino.
