This Sunday will be a super one in the Premier League, as Liverpool host Manchester City at Anfield. It will be a match where the team with the best attack plays against the team with the best defence, but who will come out on top?
The both teams are currently on 14 and 13 points respectively, occupying first and second positions. Liverpool has so far been a better team attacking wise, as they have scored a total of 15 league goals in just six matches. Their front three of Salah, Mane and Jota share 11 goals out of the 15 amongst themselves, with Salah scoring five while the remaining two are on three goals respectively.
Manchester City on the other hand have also been clinical in front of goal, but not as Liverpool. One area where Pep Guardiola's men have been excellent is in the aspect of defending. The back four continued from where they stopped last season, and this season, they have conceded just one goal in six Premier League games.
The tie between this two will be a situation where a team with the best defence meets a team with the best attack. Who will this particular tie is something that is extremely difficult to predict.
Despite having a disappointing game in the UEFA Champions League against PSG, Manchester City have been in high spirit since their defeat to Tottenham on match day one. Most recently, they defeated Thomas Tuchel's Chelsea team, who on many occasions gave tough time to some clubs. Liverpool is also in high spirit, winning 5 matches, but getting a disappointing draw against Norwich City.
It will be a match full of many tactical approaches, but what will likely happen is that, it will be a match with low goals, but certainly won't end in a draw. I feel we should expect a match full of fouls and tackles.
