MCI Vs LIV Dream11 Team Probable Playing 11 And Match Report: This season’s champions-elect take on last season’s champions in an edge of the seat thriller
For three seasons, Liverpool chased Manchester City, looking to dethrone them from their berth as Premier League champions. However, the club faltered in its quest for two consecutive seasons with last year’s sortie being a particularly difficult one for the club to digest.
However, champions are determined by their vigour, fight and character, traits Liverpool showed that they have in abundance in the 2019-20 season of the competition. Undeterred by last season, the club returned hungrier than ever this season to go back at it, famish which finally saw them fulfil their craving for their elusive league trophy.
After dominating the entire season, Liverpool will now be looking to dole out a second defeat to Manchester City when they step out for their first tie in the league after having being crowned winners. Stepping out to applause by City, Liverpool will be wanting to end the 90 minutes with rapturous applause as well as they look to show everyone why there are so deserving of the coveted title.
With nothing left to fight for and nothing left to lose when first and second go at loggerheads in this encounter, we are set to be regaled in an edge of the seat thriller today. This will be a cliff-hanger, a cracker of a thriller where two extradonaire attacking teams revel us in goal scoring euphoria.
And what differentiates Liverpool is their defensive might, one which will see them go onto defeat City for the second time this season.

MCI Vs LIV Dream11 Picks
Ederson from Manchester City will be our pick as the goal-keeper for today’s encounter. Prior to their clash against Chelsea, City had managed to rope in two cleansheets on the bounce, ones given birth to by Ederson’s string of saves.
Although this looks set to be a tie where both the sides are going to smash in the goals, we had to break the bank to opt for Liverpool’s fullbacks. These are players who just can’t cantering up the pitch with both Andrew Robertson and Trent Alexander-Arnold registering an assist to their name against Crystal Place.
Joe Gomez also moves in from Liverpool owing to the fact that he’s part of the league’s most subliminal defence while the home team will meanwhile see us opt for CB Nicholas Otamendi.
Both Mohammed Salah and Sadio Mane showed what they are capable of when functioning in unison. The two have made Liverpool into this juggernaut, players who have gone for the jugular with either scoring the one goal apiece in the side’s 4-0 trouncing the last time around.
Both make for instant selection along with Fabinho who scored as well for Liverpool in that it. Elsewhere, Bernardo Silva looks to be regaining last season’s touch ever since the league has restarted to see us opt for the incisive player from the home side.
With 8 assists in his first season at the club, Riyad Mahrez is also snagged up by us from Manchester City along with the side’s focal point, Kevin de Bruyne who scored his side’s penalty against Chelsea.
Sitting atop of Liverpool’s scoring ranks this season with the 17 goals, Mohammed Salah will become our singular pick in this ambit.
Captain And Vice-Captain
The 17 goals for Salah make him lead our side out as the captain while Kevin is the vice-captain.
