Yalla Shoot :Man City vs Liverpool LIVE: Premier League latest score and goal updates as Jack Grealish scores City’s fourth

Liverpool still an exceptional team – Pep

Manchester City host Liverpool in Saturday’s early Premier League kick off as they hope to close the gap on current leaders Arsenal.

The gap between Pep Guardiola’s side and the Gunners is eight points though City have a game in hand and Arsenal do not play until this afternoon. The reigning champions can therefore pile some pressure on Mikel Arteta’s team if they manage to defeat Liverpool.

An indifferent season for the Reds has seen them knocked out of every cup competition and leaves them with an uphill battle to finish in the Champions League qualification places. Liverpool are currently sixth in the table and seven points behind fourth-placed Tottenham with two games in hand. Victory for Jurgen Klopp’s men today would be a strong statement of their desire to finish the season well and would increase the pressure on top four rivals Tottenham and Newcastle.

Both managers are also dealing with injuries to key personnel. Guardiola will be worried about in form striker Erling Haaland as well as Phil Foden who left the England squad following surgery to remove his appendix. Klopp meanwhile is without midfielders Thiago Alcantara and Stefan Bajcetic but Darwin Nunez should be fit to feature.
