Liverpool and Manchester City prepare to face off at the Etihad Stadium on Matchday 32 of Premier League. The newly crowned Premier League Champions take to the field for the first time since their coronation. Manchester City welcome the Reds in a potentially title deciding encounter with 7 games left to play and the Reds have already been crowned champions.
As the outgoing champions prepare to greet the newly crowned kings of England with a guard of honour, the game promises to be an exciting contest regardless of the circumstances. Liverpool are set to take the field for the first time since their coronation and have plenty of Premier League records in sight between now and the end of the season.
On the other hand, City secured their qualification to the FA Cup semis but fell to a defeat 2-1 against Chelsea in their previous league encounter. Two of the best sides in the country prepare to go head to head in Manchester and it is yet to be seen who wins the battle of wits between Pep Guardiola and Jurgen Klopp.

Attackers: Mahrez, Jesus, Sterling
Defenders: Alexander-Arnold, Gomez, Van Dijk, Robertson
Midfielders: Wijnaldum, Henderson, Oxlade-Chamberlain
Attackers: Salah, Firmino, Mane
Whenever both of these sides play, goals should be expected and that should not change this time with another entertaining encounter anticipated. Over City’s last 15 games in all competitions, they have scored in all but 3 of them, while the Reds have only failed to get a goal in 4 matches during the same period. Liverpool may have already sealed the title but they will be looking to add to Manchester City’s woes by getting their first win as Premier League champions at the Etihad.
Since City’s defeat 2-1 to Chelsea, Liverpool have started celebrating as Jürgen Klopp’s side had wrapped up the title with 7 games to go, with 86 points and 23 points ahead of their opponents. Whereas City have never given Liverpool any competition at the top, but this clash will provide an opportunity to save some of their blushes.The Citizens lead the scoring charts in the Premier League this season, netting 77 times, while the Reds are just behind them on 70.
Liverpool’s last league win at the Etihad Stadium came in 2015 and the majority of the squad that day have now moved on to pastures new. Roberto Firmino, Dejan Lovren, James Milner and Adam Lallana remain and they will need no extra motivation as they try to reach another milestone before the season ends. As for City, Kun Aguero remains in the recovery room but the Citizens want this win more than the Reds and Fernandinho misses the Premier League derby through suspension.
Head to Head
Manchester City have already surrendered the Premier League title to Liverpool but may take revenge when they meet at Etihad Stadium. A first title triumph after 30 years was confirmed when City went down 2-1 at Chelsea the following night, sparking wild celebrations on Merseyside. Liverpool returned to action with a slow start at Everton but quickly rediscovered their form when they crushed Crystal Palace 4-0 at Anfield. The Reds had to celebrate their coronation and a lack of FA Cup action over the weekend should ensure they fully recover in time for this test.
But City will not give Liverpool the respect they deserve when they make it to Etihad this week, but that will end when the whistle blows. The home side will be devastated after losing the title in such fashion, especially after they just pipped Liverpool 12 months ago. Klopp’s men will also be keen to prove they are top dogs for a reason, remembering their defeat to City in last season’s climax.
Interestingly several Premier League records remain up for grabs for the Reds and it feels very evident that Klopp will keep his players focused. After a successful FA Cup quarter-final, it is back to Premier League action for Pep Guardiola and Manchester City despite their loss to Chelsea in their last outing. The Reds could no longer be chased to the top of the table and they have won the league for the first time since 1990.
Citizens VS Gunners
There will be fireworks when Manchester City and Liverpool face each other in the Premier League derby at Etihad Stadium. After a thrilling win 4-0 over Crystal Palace the Reds are brimming with confidence ahead of the trip to Manchester. With Jurgen Klopp having a full starting XI to choose from, his men are determined to put some icing on the cake on a very successful season. They have been in terrific form this season as they recorded a win 3-1 in their previous meeting back in November.
But City are back to their best after crushing Newcastle in the FA Cup and are looking to send a message to Liverpool ahead of next season by beating them. Hungry for revenge, they are likely to go all guns blazing at Liverpool on Matchday 32 as the Reds were crowned Champions last week. As for City, they will look to return to winning ways after a disappointing defeat against Chelsea in their previous league encounter.
Though Liverpool may gain motivation from the fact they are still aiming for 5 different Premier League records: for most points, for most wins, for most home wins, for away wins and for the biggest win margin. Despite being a tight contest, with plenty of goals on the cards, Liverpool look to emerge victorious for the 30th time in the Premier League this season. But the hosts are not going to give it up that easy in this merely title deciding encounter, as the Citizens plot their vengeance under constant pressure to prove their worth.
