Clash of the titans
In the Premier League, Manchester City host Liverpool in the Premier League in a clash between the last three league winners.
Jurgen Klopp’s side won the title last season with 99 points and lead the table after seven games this season, despite losing 7-2 against Aston Vila. They have 16 points from seven matches – two points ahead of Leicester.
Liverpool beat West Ham 2-1 last week, coming from a goal down to win with Diogo Jota scoring once again. He scored a hat-trick midweek to make it seven goals in 10 matches since he joined the club.
Man City form
Man City have made a slower start to the season than the champions. They have played a game fewer than Liverpool and have 11 points from six games.
Pep Guardiola’s side beat Sheffield United 1-0 last weekend with Kyle Walker scoring the winner against his former club. The Blues are on a four match unbeaten run in the Premier League.

Gabriel Jesus is fit again for City, a much needed boost as they have been without a recognised striker due to Sergio Aguero’s fitness issues. Benjamin Mendy and Fernandinho are also missing.
Thiago Alcantara is out for Liverpool, while Fabinho, Virgil van Dijk and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain are long term absentees but Joel Matip is fit again.
