Former Premier League star and football pundit, Shaun Wright-Phillips, has made his prediction for the highly anticipated match between Manchester City and Liverpool this weekend. The two teams will face off at the Etihad Stadium on Sunday, November 8th, in a game that could have significant implications for the rest of the Premier League season.
Wright-Phillips believes that the game will be an exciting one for both Manchester City and Liverpool, but he refrained from providing a scoreline for the match. Speaking to Sport Review, he said, “In comparison to their starts of the last three years, it’s been a very positive start. The game on the weekend is a tricky one. I think Liverpool are starting to find their feet again in a lot of areas, especially with the front three linking up well regardless of what partnership Jurgen Klopp plays up there.”
Wright-Phillips went on to say, “I think it will be an interesting game. Liverpool won’t play the way Chelsea played, so I think Man City will have a bit more control of the ball than during the Chelsea game. But I think it is set up to be a really good game.”
The match between Manchester City and Liverpool is one of the most highly anticipated games of the Premier League season, with both teams expected to challenge for the title this year. Manchester City is currently in 10th place in the league table, with three wins, three draws, and one loss from their seven games. Liverpool, on the other hand, is in second place, with five wins, one draw, and one loss from their seven games.
The game will also see two of the best managers in the world face off against each other. Pep Guardiola, the manager of Manchester City, is widely regarded as one of the best managers in the history of the game. He has won numerous titles with Barcelona, Bayern Munich, and Manchester City, and is known for his attacking style of play.
Jurgen Klopp, the manager of Liverpool, is also widely regarded as one of the best managers in the world. He has led Liverpool to the Premier League title, the Champions League title, and the Club World Cup in the past two years, and is known for his high-energy, pressing style of play.
The game is also likely to see some of the best players in the world face off against each other. Manchester City boasts a star-studded squad, including Kevin De Bruyne, Raheem Sterling, and Sergio Aguero, while Liverpool has one of the best front threes in the world, consisting of Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane, and Roberto Firmino.
