Pep Guardiola had his comfort zone overrun by Jürgen Klopp in the season 2018/2019 preseason when Manchester City and Liverpool faced each other in July and the Reds got the victory against the Citizens.
5 months after this encounter, the Anfield Road team has overcome Manchester City and is currently leading the Premier League. And this Thursday (3rd), Liverpool will try to take over the City hegemony through a victory, which could mean getting closer and closer to the first Premier League title conquered by the Reds.
Until today, no team that started the year with an advantage of seven points or more – as is the case in this campaign – lost the title. On the side o Manchester, this match gives them the chance to be the first ones to beat the Merseyside team, as well as come back stronger to the fight for this championship.
This will be the match in which two of the best teams in the world will play against each other, with player and coach with high quality. The two top goalscorers of the Brazilian National Team will play, as well as two of the best attacks and defenses in Europe… With all that, it’ll be a really great match.
The coaches create a particular chapter in this confront. Guardiola and Klopp are old rivals when both were in the Bundesliga, the Spanish on Bayern Munich and the German on Borussia Dortmund, where they had many interesting matches and confronts. Now, in England, they are once again creating a rivalry between their teams. With both of them knowing each other and both teams fighting for this Premier League, we all know that the match will have all the ingredients to be exciting.
Losing points is a possibility that Manchester City cannot have. However, with this amazing sequence that Liverpool is having, it is also very difficult for the Citizens to guarantee that they will have the 3 points. The match is completely opened.
Who will win?! Probably the football fans… Because it is going to be an early final between Liverpool and Manchester City.
