Manchester City vs Liverpool – an early highlight
The new Premier League year starts with a bang! On January 3, 2018 the most successful English clubs of 2018 meet each other in a clash that could be indicatory for this season’s title race. When current champions Manchester City and reinvigorated Liverpool FC compete at the Etihad there will be a lot of stories to be told.
Thus it will be the duel between two of the most lethal striker trios in the world. Manchester City forwards Raheem Sterling, Leroy Sané and Sergio Agüero as well as Reds strikers Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mané and Roberto Firmino give every defender bad dreams. Especially when they are assisted by David and Bernardo Silva or Fabinho and James Milner. There is no doubt: The world-class players on each side will make this match spectacular.
Guardiola’s bogey opponents
But not only the players on the pitch represent the best football has to offer. The two managers on the sidelines, Pep Guardiola and Jürgen Klopp, also rank among the best of their kind. The Spaniard and the German already met each other 15 times in their careers with their respective teams. The statistics speak in favor of Klopp, with the former Borussia Dortmund manager winning eight matches against Guardiola (while losing five matches and drawing two times). Apparently Klopp isn’t exactly Guardiola’s favorite opponent. This also applies to Liverpool FC. The Reds are one of only two teams that Guardiola has a negative record against in his managerial career (the other one being Wigan Athletic which Guardiola only met once and lost).
This leaning can also be seen in the statistic of the last games between Manchester City and Liverpool FC. City weren’t able to win any of their last 4 games against Liverpool (1 draw, 3 loses) including their painful elimination in last season’s Champions League quarter-final. Yet, Manchester City will love to remember their last Premier League home match against Liverpool which ended 5-0 in favor of the Skyblues.
