#1. Liverpool’s solid attack; City’s shambolic defence
While both sides boast of a world class attack, Liverpool hold the advantage when it comes to defence. The Reds defence seemed impenetrable last season. They have not been as airtight this season however, it is much better than the shambles City find themselves in.
City are currently playing a makeshift defence of John Stones and Fernadinho and Kyle Walker is the only first choice defender Guardiola has in his arsenal at the moment. However, they have only conceded one goal more than Liverpool have this season.
However, their defence are yet to be tested by another world class side. While the match will eventually be decided by their attack, Liverpool will have a much easier defence to penetrate than the one City will be up against.
Liverpool will come hard at the side with their trio of Salah, Firmino and Mane while their fullbacks Trent Alexander-Arnold and Andy Robertson make forward runs and launch crosses to get the ball in the box. All the signs seem to point to a Liverpool victory tomorrow. However, this is football. Anything can happen in the 90 minutes between the whistles.
