Before this game, this squad is coming from a 3-2 win against Liverpool during the Round of 16 during the EFL Cup. It was Erling Haaland, Riyad Mahrez, and Nathan Ake who gave the victory for their squad. Now, they are at the third spot, eight points behind the top spot, but a point behind the second spot. If they managed to pick up a victory for this match, they can earn three points, and will be at the second spot of the league table. Attacking might be a little vulnerable for this squad, but the presence of Haarland is more than enough to intimidate their opponents. However, Haarland alone is not enough to bring victory for Man City, so they need to improve their attacks if they really want to improve their record.

While Haaland will return for Man City, Kalvin Phillips will not due to health issues. Ruben Dias as well might be out for at least a month, following the shoulder surgery he had. Julian Alvarez on the other hand returns after the New Year.

This squad will head into this game from a 4-2 loss against AS Monaco during a friendly match. On that match, the two goals came from Robin Koch, and Joe Gelhardt, but those were just consolation goals as they lost in that match. With 15 points across their name, they are now at the 15th spot of the league table. They are just a point away from being eliminated, so they are in-need of wins, because if not, they will already be eliminated early in the tournament. Although they had a poor start this season, they were finally able to hold on during the World Cup break. They did not made a move during the World Cup break, a decision they are hopeful not to regret.

Tyler Adams will not play for this match, following the suspension he sustained. Additionally, Stuart Dallas, Archie Gray, and Luis Sinisterra, will all not suit up in this game following their injuries.

Prediction:

Manchester City (3.5)
Odds: -0.96
