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.
The game will probably come just too early for Xhedran Shaqiri to be involved.
Predicted Liverpool line-up: Alisson, Trent Alexander-Arnold, Andy Robertson, Vrigil can Dijk, Dejan Lovren, Fabinho, Jordan Henderson, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Roberto Firmino, Sadio Mane, Mo Salah.
Predicted Man City line-up: Ederson, Kyle Walker, Benjamin Mendy, Joao Cancelo, John Stones, Ilkay Gundogan, Fernandinho, Kevin De Bruyne, Bernado Silva, Raheem Sterling, Sergio Aguero
Who is the referee for Liverpool v Man City?
Perhaps unsurprisingly, the Premier League have put their top man, Michael Oliver in charge of this one.
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.
Liverpool v Man City recent head-to-head
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
The bookies certainly fancy Liverpool to claim what would be a huge win in the title race at Anfield on Sunday.
You can generally back them at around 13/8, with Man City coming in around the 24/13 mark.
A draw can be backed at 11/4 with most bookies.
