Liverpool has mostly played poorly this season, but they are still capable of surprising. However, Manchester City is now the superior team and should be able to prevail in this match.

Liverpool went to Arsenal last weekend knowing it would be a tough test, but it was a test they would eventually fail. While Liverpool was able to equalize twice via Nunez and Firmino, Arsenal was able to score three goals through Martinelli and a brace from Saka. As a result, Arsenal left with three points and a major confidence boost as they prepare to contend for the crown this year.
Liverpool Predicted Lineup: Alisson, Konaté, van Dijk, Tsimikas, Gomez , Henderson, Thiago, Salah, Jota, Firmino & Núñez
Last time out, Man City defeated Southampton at home with ease, as was predicted. Cancelo opened the scoring in the 20th minute, and Foden scored a skillful second goal to make it 2-0 just before halftime.
