Liverpool Vs Manchester City Dream11 Prediction: The SportsRush brings you the Dream11 prediction between Liverpool and Manchester City.
Liverpool and Manchester City will face in the Community Shield at Wembley Stadium on Sunday. These two sides produced an intense title race last campaign and it one amongst the reasons for the fans eagerness towards this game before the Premier League kicks off from Friday.
The Reds lifted the Champions League, while Pep Guardiola lifted the Premier League, League Cup, FA Cup, and Champions League. It was an eventful season for Jurgen Klopp and Pep Guardiola, and the fans are full of expectations heading into the new season.
Both the managers are unlikely to play the full strength, although Liverpool and Manchester City have stars filled in their whole squad. It might prove to be an exhilarating contest and there are no favourites in this game.
Liverpool Vs Manchester City Dream11 Team
Simon Mignolet: With both the first-choice goalkeepers set to warm the bench on Sunday, Simon Mignolet holds the highest chance of keeping a clean sheet because of the formidable defence. City, on the other hand, will be without their centre-back Aymeric Laporte. Mignolet has the aptness making plenty of saves and will come handy in penalties as he is an expert in that part.
Trent Alexander-Arnold: Trent Alexander-Arnold was Liverpool’s leading assister last season with 16. The right-back is a creative outlet for the Reds and he will have his say on Sunday. Should he be provided with the freedom to roam around forward, Trent will be as dangerous as he can get.
Kyle Walker: Manchester City right-back Kyle Walker stays with the defence unlike Trent Alexander-Arnold. The English International allows the midfielders to push forward and contribute goals in the final third. Since City are a possession-based side, Walker has a chance of shutting down the opponents.
Nicolas Otamendi: The departure of Vincent Kompany and injury to Aymeric Laporte means that the Citizens will have to deploy Nicolas Otamendi through the left-hand side of the central defence. The Argentinian has a knack of scoring goals from threat pieces and could find the back of the net if provided with a chance.
Virgil Van Dijk: Virgil Van Dijk is the heartbeat of Liverpool’s defence and will start against City on Sunday. The Dutch international is a fantastic ball-playing centre-back and can score goals from corners as well. His defensive aspect of the game is top-notch and is integral to Liverpool’s hopes of winning this game.
Jordan Henderson: Jordan Henderson is rejuvenated further up the pitch. The English International has contributed goals and assists while he played behind the forward line. He can rile up numbers if the opponent’s defence goes for a walk without their most important defender.
James Milner: James Milner is another player who can make things happen at the higher end of the pitch. The midfielder is the primary penalty taker for the Reds, which is an important aspect in knockout rounds. He makes plenty of tackles and does the defensive job to perfection.
Bernardo Silva: Bernardo Silva was Manchester City’s best player last season. The Portuguese international is full of running and makes things happen on both ends of the field. He has the knack of scoring goals from long range and vision to pick out his teammates inside the penalty box.
Kevin De Bruyne: Kevin De Bruyne’s last season was hampered with injuries, but the Belgian will be slotted into the starting lineup. The attacking midfielder has full of goals in his bag and can destroy defence on his own. He has an eye for the pass and could dislodge the opponents’ defence.
Mohamed Salah (VC): Mohamed Salah looked on-song during Liverpool’s 3-1 victory against Lyon in a pre-season friendly. The Egyptian did not contribute to the goal, but his presence makes a total difference for the Reds. Since the left side of the defence is not as good as it can get for City, Salah could end up scoring a goal or two.
Sergio Aguero (C): Sergio Aguero has two different records against Liverpool at home and away, while he is yet to score in a neutral stadium against the Reds. Despite this stat, the Argentinian is a continuous threat for the opponents’, who will be having an eye on him to cut down the leakage of goals.
