Switching back into the upcoming big match, Liverpool arrived into the Sunday game in a slightly negative period as they haven’t won any of their latest three fixtures in all competition.
Following their Champions League defeat against Napoli last midweek, The Reds have basically lost two out of their recent three fixtures since they also got beaten in Carabao Cup against Chelsea at Anfield.
Those unpleasant results will certainly add an extra motivation for Jurgen Klopp’s men, not that they would be needing any already seeing that they are set to face the defending champion.

As for Guardiola’s side, they arrived for the weekend tie in a positive mood following their precious 2-1 away victory over Hoffenheim in the UEFA Champions League.

Moreover, the Etihad based outfit were also eliminated from the later stage of Champions League last season by Klopp’s boys in what be considered slight controversial manner.
Both teams themselves have shown their title credentials so far this season, which saw them basically sitting joint top in current standings with 19 points from seven matches, so whoever won on Sunday, will temporarily take control the standings, at least until the upcoming international break.
Playing at home, the bookies are slightly favoring Klopp’s men to take all three points with the odds for that result being placed at 2. 45.
Meanwhile, Man City’s shot at winning is also considered pretty high as the probabilities for it is set at 2. 75, which is much more higher that a potential draw result, placed at 3. 65.
