Battle for Premier League Supremacy: Liverpool vs Man City

Matchday 7 of the Premier League is just around the corner and we can look forward to an absolute highlight game in England’s top division. This weekend Liverpool FC welcome the second in the league Manchester City on Sunday at 5:30 p.m.

These two clubs had a totally opposite experience in midweek. Liverpool thrashed FC Porto in Portugal, whilst Man City fell short against PSG in Paris with Lionel Messi opening his goal scoring account for the Parisians against his former mentor, Pep Guardiola.

If we had to pick a winner in this encounter, we would probably choose Liverpool FC. The Reds had a very solid start into this season and are far less predictable than last year with Diogo Jota in the center. Do you agree? Feel free to tell us in the comments.

Jurgen Klopp is surely of a different opinion to the bookies on that one and will be hoping that the return of the crowd at Anfield will tilt the title race in their favour this season.
