2. The Skyblues Are Susceptible To Pace And High Pressing
Manchester City’s strength lies in their ability to play attacking football and no team in the Premier League so far have tested their resolve. Liverpool is one of Europe’s best team in counterattacks because of the pace and quality in the team; rated as the best in Premier League in this regard.
Most of the Premier League teams sit back and defend against City, allowing them to hold on to possession. But Klopp’s Liverpool side will definitely be not going that route.
1. The Desire To Avenge Their 5-0 Defeat At The Etihad
Last time Manchester City played Liverpool, there was no shortage of drama. The game was evenly balanced until the 37th minute. Sadio Mane’s red card changed the complexion of the game completely. City, with a man advantage, put Liverpool to the sword in a 5-0 win.
It was Liverpool’s worst defeat under Jurgen Klopp. Klopp will understandably be the hungrier of two managers on Sunday, as Liverpool look to avenge their 5-0 humiliation.
Liverpool can be expected to take the attack to their opponents, and who knows, they could just do what hasn’t been done so far this season; beat the Citizens.
