Manchester City take on the visitors Liverpool in the round 32 match of English Premier League. The match will be played on Sunday, April 10th at Etihad Stadium (Manchester).
City are in intense situation. On the one hand, nothing is clear so far in the Champions League. They took 1-0 win over Atletico Madrid on Tuesday but the second leg surely will be a toughest matchup. And now the City holds a meeting that will decide, most likely, the fate of the entire Premier League. Pep’s men had a handicap but some points were lost where they did not expect – a draw in January on the field of Southampton, 2-3 at home with Tottenham, and finally, without goals in London with Crystal Palace. After that, the advantage over the nearest pursuer was minimal – only 1 point. And I wonder what the Catalan manager will do now: a strategic draw will leave his wards in the first place, but with a minimum gap? Or still an attempt to beat the Reds?

Liverpool also played in the Champions League on Tuesday. In Lisbon, the English were able to beat Benfica 3-1, and now Jürgen Klopp may simply not think about how and what to save for the second leg match. And now all the courage needs to fall on Manchester City. After all, the task for the Merseyside’s is very difficult: they need to win. Will the draw maintain the status quo, and will there be 6 rounds ahead, which the citizens may well win all in a row. The good thing is that now Liverpool is probably at the peak of its form. Starting from January 16, the club coulnd win only twice in all tournaments. At first, they failed to score in the Chelsea League Cup final – but still took the trophy in a penalty shootout. Also, there were 0-1 defeat in the second leg of 1/8 of the Champions League, but it meant nothing.
In 2020 and 2021 Manchester City was stronger. He alternated between wins and draws against Liverpool. In addition to Mendy, Manchester City will not have another, more important defender, Ruben Dias. Liverpool will come without staffing problems at all. Bookmakers consider the favorite of the pair Manchester City. But now Liverpool is good enough to cling to points on the field of a competitor – we expect that the Reds will not lose.
