Manchester City vs Liverpool Kick Off Time
Man City vs Liverpool Premier League fixture is schedule to kicks off at 17:30 pm (4:30 UK time) on Sunday, 8 November at Etihad Stadium.
In the five games Liverpool have played since Virgil van Dijk’s injury, they have conceded only once from open play and twice in total.
Should he produce at Etihad Stadium in the 4.30pm GMT kick-off, the No.20 would become the first Red to net in five matches in a row since Mohamed Salah.
The Egyptian achieved the feat for Jürgen Klopp’s side back in March 2018 and went on to extend the sequence to seven.
Man City have won their last three home Premier League matches against Liverpool by an aggregate score of 11-1
On the prospect of meeting Liverpool, Guardiola said: “It is always nice to play against the strongest teams possible.
“Last year, they were stronger. They have been an exceptional team for a long time, with an exceptional manager. It is nice to face them to improve our level.
“When you play against teams like Liverpool and other teams you always have moments where you have to suffer. We know it. We have to do it.
“We’ll try to use it to our strengths as much as possible. We know each other quite well. We have played each other many times.
“There will be up and down moments. We need to take our chances and be clinical.”
Klopp has won five of his 10 top-flight fixtures against City, with two draws and three defeats. Both teams have scored 17 times in that sequence.
Klopp confirmed on Friday that Thiago is not yet ready to return following the injury he sustained during last month’s Merseyside derby, though Jota – who picked up a slight knock after scoring a hat-trick versus Atalanta BC in midweek – is set to be available for the trip to Etihad Stadium.
Meanwhile, Naby Keita, JoelMatip and Kostas Tsimikas were all involved in the Reds’ matchday squad in Bergamo after each experiencing lay-offs, and Klopp reported no new setbacks for the trio.
They are all in training, so that’s really good,” the boss told Liverpoolfc.com. “Nobody mentioned Diogo to me. Yesterday [Thursday] was second-day recovery, he was involved. So that looked fine.
“With Thiago, that’s how it is. It’s an injury but doesn’t need a surgery, all these kind of things, but still takes time.
“The challenge that day was a harsh one and directly against the leg, so still adapting but improving. It will not be too long anymore but for this game I don’t think he will be in.”
Klopp later stated during his pre-match press conference: “The longer he is out, the longer he has to train before we consider him as a starting line-up player. Thiago will not be available for Sunday.”
The manager also noted that Fabinho and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain are ‘doing well’ in their respective recoveries, but neither will be involved this weekend.
James Milner and Joe Gomez could both reach appearance landmarks on Sunday. Milner is one shy of his 550th career league match, while Gomez could play his 100th league game.
Player to watch:
Mohamed Salah has scored 80 Premier League goals in 115 matches for the Reds since joining them in 2017, at least nine more than any other player in the competition in that time
Salah has scored in his last three games in the league and cup for the first time since December 2019.
Roberto Firmino scored his first Liverpool goal in the club’s last Premier League win at the Etihad back in November 2015.
Diogo Jota is looking to score in his fifth consecutive game for Liverpool when they travel to Manchester City this afternoon.
Pep Guardiola ruled Sergio Aguero out by telling the media on Friday: “No, he’s not ready. Not yet.”
Fernandinho has been absent for City’s last four matches, while Benjamin Mendy has missed their last six.
Liverpool will be without Thiago Alcantara against Manchester City on Sunday but Jürgen Klopp has allayed any concerns regarding the fitness of Diogo Jota.
