Man City, Liverpool, battles for supremacy

Manchester City and Liverpool aims to continue their battle for supremacy as these two teams meet in the fourth round of the EFL Cup. The meeting between these two teams will be on December 23, 2022, at 4:00 AM (GMT+8), with the Man City hosting this match. The meeting between these two teams is a crucial match, as they both try to dethrone the defending champions. Coming from the World Cup, members of these teams are on a good momentum coming into this game.

Man City and Liverpool are no longer new to each other as they already met for 222 times, but from those meetings, Liverpool is the one at the advantage. The visitors had an excellent record against the hosts with 108 wins. The hosts on the other hand only have 58 wins against the visitors, while the remaining 56 matches ended in draw. Additionally, Man City have lost their last five matches against the Liverpool, so they want to bounce back in this match.

Coming into this match, this squad is looking to bounce back from their early eliminations last season of the EFL. This squad are actually the winners of the EFL Cup from 2018-2021, but failed to go to their fifth straight last year. Now, they are back to prove that they are still as capable as they were few seasons ago. Man City is coming from a 2-0 EFL Cup success against Chelsea in the third round. For this match, they are hoping to get the same results against Liverpool, who is fond of winning against them. Moreover, expect that this team will call standout players, but will likely call four or five senior players only after the World Cup bid.

During the month-long break due to the World Cup, doctors of Man City are just glad that none of their players are out injured. A healthy Man City will be meeting Liverpool for this match. Ilkay Gundogan’s return is also in-time for Man City, as he is now ready to start in this match.

During the World Cup break, playing never stops for Liverpool, joining Dubai Super Cup during that month-long break. Coming into this match, you can expect that they never lost their rhythm in this match. Although their campaign in that tournament is not good, they will not keep themselves remembering those failures. Coming into this game, they are hoping that they can escape the fourth round, after exiting the contest on the same round last season. This squad is playing inspired throughout their previous matches, and are hoping to do the same in this match. Additionally, they are aiming not to get the same unfortunate results from their previous meetings.
