How Man City and Liverpool could line up in Premier League title decider

Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola will have to make some big changes to his side ahead of welcoming Liverpool on Sunday

Manchester City and Liverpool will meet on Sunday in what could prove to be a title decider for the Premier League trophy.

Jurgen Klopp’s side will have to be at their very best to overcome Man City at home, but Jurgen Klopp will take confidence from having a full fit squad to pick from.

Unfortunately for Pep Guardiola, City do have at least one major injury to worry about with Ruben Dias now ruled out for the game, which should mean a back four of Kyle Walker, John Stones, Aymeric Laporte and Joao Cancelo.

In midfield, Guardiola may look to bring back Bernardo Silva but will most likely stick with his tried and tested midfield trio of Ilkay Gundogan, Kevin de Bruyne and Rodri. In attack the Man City manager is set to stick with Jack Grealish, Phil Foden and Raheem Sterling.

Liverpool will have a fully fit team to pick from, which means Klopp will likely stick with his preferred back four of Any Robertson, Virgil van Dijk, Joel Matip and Trent Alexander-Arnold.

Jordan Henderson may return in midfield but Klopp is more likely to stick with Naby Keita, Fabinho and Thiago Alcantara in the middle of the pitch.

There will be little doubt over Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane starting the match, with Klopp likely to Luis Diaz on the left wing.
