It is hard to make a case for Liverpool still being in the title race anyway, but if City go to Anfield and win then it really is all over for Jurgen Klopp’s side; they would have no chance.
City will know that, and they will be up for it. Erling Haaland was rested in midweek so he will be ready… and I think City are that good, they will wipe the floor with them.
Liverpool’s high line has been causing them problems anyway – Rangers were able to get at them in the first half on Wednesday – so they would have to be very brave to try that against Haaland.
They might still create opportunities, because of the way City are set up, but when you look at both teams, City are just too good.
