Manchester City endeavor title chances

Manchester City and Liverpool meets to resume their campaign after their two-week international break. Just last season, these two teams are the top two in the contest, but they are coming in this game with different aims. Man City is looking to get closer to the title, by winning more points as they can. Liverpool on the other hand is still battling to make it to the top four, despite the point deficit. These two teams will meet on April 1, 2023, at 7:30 PM (GMT+8), as Man City host Liverpool.

In the league table, these two teams will likely enter the next round of the contest. The hosts currently sit at the second spot of the league table with 61 points. Although the top team is ahead of them by eight points, they are still optimistic of their chances in the top spot. Moreover, they are also fancying their chances for the Champions League, which is likely possible. The visitors on the other hand are at the sixth in the league table, and they are still hopeful to enter the top four. Although it is unlikely to happen, given their point differential, they remain to be optimistic of their chances.

Man City is coming in this game from a good momentum, as they are currently unbeaten across all competitions. They are currently in a six-game winning run across all competitions, which is not surprising given their excellent form. Erling Haaland is the one who leads Man City, scoring eight goals. Coming into this match, their main goal is to reduce their point difference against the league leaders. However, winning against Liverpool seems to be a very challenging task for Man City. In two of their last three meetings, it was Liverpool who came out victorious. With that, Man City remains optimistic that they can win this game for a chance in the top spot.

Erling Haaland is a doubt in this game, following the groin injury he sustained during their international break. Phil Foden on the other hand have been ruled out due the appendix surgery he undergo last week.

Last year, Liverpool actually had a colorful season, as they won the EFL Cup, and FA Cup, which made them eager to win the title for this contest. They are now coming into this game with hopes of getting a spot in the top four. An entrance to the top four of the league would give them a qualification in the Champions League. However, Liverpool has had struggles this season as they have fallen behind other teams this season. Before the international break, they are from a dominating 7-0 win against Man United. However, they followed this dominating win with a back-to-back losses, which is unfortunate. This is a much-needed victory for them to close the lead of their rivals in the top four spot.

Luis Diaz finally returned to training earlier this week, after being out for five months due to an injury. According to reports, he is expected to be in action for this match. Darwin Nunez on the other hand is also expected to be fit in this match after receiving a treatment. However, Kostas Tsimikas is a doubt in this match, while Alcantara, Bajcetic, and Ramsay are all out in this match.
