The Premier League has a stellar offering for football fans this weekend, with title rivals Liverpool and Manchester City facing off against each other at Anfield.

Although it’s only November, it’s a match that could have serious implications in the title race, with Jurgen Klopp’s troops already holding a six point advantage over defending champions City.

When is Liverpool v Man City?

It kicks off at 4:30pm on Sunday November 10 2019.

How to watch Liverpool v Man City on TV

Sky Sports is your friend for this one. It will be broadcast on Sky Sports Main Event and Sky Sports Premier League from 4pm.

If you want a little under-card action, the Midlands derby of Wolves v Aston Villa comes first on Super Sunday with a 2pm kick-off.

Manchester United v Brighton is also scheduled for a 2pm kick-off on Sunday, but that is not due for broadcast of British TV.

Team news and predicted line-ups for Liverpool v Man City

Man City midfield maestro David Silva is a doubt for the match after suffering a muscular injury against Southampton last week.

Rodri is also out, and Leroy Sane and Aymeric Laporte remain long-terms absentees for City.

For Liverpool, defender Joel Matip will miss out with a knee injury. Jordan Henderson, though, is back in contention after missing the Champions League clash with Genk with illness.

He’ll be assisted by Stuart Burt and Simon Bennett, with Mike Dean assuming fourth official responsibility.

VAR will be involved too, with Paul Tierney in the hotseat, assisted by Constantine Hatzidakis.

The teams have already met once this season at Wembley, with Man City coming out on top in the Charity Shield in a penalty shootout following a 1-1 draw.

This fixture finished in a goalless draw last season, but Liverpool have generally had Pep Guardiola’s number in recent years.

City’s 2-1 win at the Etihad last January was their first win in five Premier League and Champions League clashes with Liverpool, with the Reds winning three of them.

A repeat of Liverpool’s 4-3 win in this fixture in 2017/18 would certainly satisfy the neutrals.

Betting odds for Liverpool v Man City
