A win for Manchester City would end Liverpool’s unbeaten start to the season and also close the points gap to 4 points. Although Liverpool would still lead the Premier League table they would have halted the Reds’ momentum.
A defeat for the hosts would mean that Liverpool now has a 10 points gap on them at the top of the Premier League table.
