Time: 22:00 Cairo Local Time | 15:00 ET (Canada-USA)
Venue: Etihad Stadium
Defending champions Manchester City will lock horns with runaway Premier League leaders Liverpool on Thursday night at Etihad Stadium in what is being touted as the match of the season. Pep Guardiola’s side is currently placed at the third spot 7 points adrift of the Reds, who are yet to taste a defeat in 2018/19 season. The stakes will be high in the forthcoming clash as both the team will be vying to prove their title credentials by securing an overwhelming victory.
The Etihad outfit had got off to an explosive start earlier this season but later slipped in the league table after facing defeats to Chelsea, Crystal Palace and Leicester City in quick succession. However, Liverpool has been absolutely rampant from the start having secured 54 points from possible 60 points in 20 matches.
On selection front, both Jurgen Klopp and Pep Guardiola will have their strongest line up at their disposal. Only Kevin De Bruyne remains a doubt for the upcoming Premier League match.
