The Manchester City vs Liverpool match will be played on Thursday, January 4, at the Etihad Stadium, Manchester. After 20 matches played in Premier League, Manchester City is second on the table with 47 points, while Liverpool is first with 54 points at the moment. This is the absolute derby match of the season. If Liverpool stay undefeated, they will be very close to the historic Premier League title.
In their previous ten meetings, Manchester City recorded only two victories, Liverpool had six wins, while two matches ended in a draw. However, in their last league clash at Etihad Stadium, Manchester City celebrated a 5:0 victory.
Only a month ago, it seemed that this season will be the same as the last, with Manchester City easily winning the title with a double-digit advantage over the nearest rival. However, three defeats in the last five matches gave the chance to other teams to catch on. And they did that, especially Liverpool, which won all matches and they are now seven points in front on the top of the table. So, Manchester City simply must win this match in order to stay alive in the quest for the title.
