With the Citizens missing the majority of their key players, Al Hain-Cole expects Klopp's more experienced side to maintain their strong record

Premier League rivals Liverpool and Manchester City will lock horns in front of a packed MetLife Stadium crowd in Wednesday's International Champions Cup clash.

The Reds won three of the four league and Champions League encounters between the sides last season, albeit losing 5-0 in the other game.

Latest Odds

Having gone down 3-1 against Borussia Dortmund in the first match of their US tour, they are available at evens (2.00) with bet365 to bounce back with another victory over this opposition.

Pep Guardiola's team also lost out to Dortmund in their last fixture, but can be backed at 5/2 (3.50) to get up and running with a first pre-season win here.

Aymeric Laporte Manchester City

The sides shared a 2-2 draw when they met in the International Champions Cup back in 2014, and you can get odds of 13/5 (3.60) on them taking this one to another penalty shootout with a deadlocked 90 minutes.

Team News

Sadio Mane, Mohammed Salah and Marko Grujic may be involved after joining up with the squad last week, although Joel Matip has returned to Merseyside after suffering an injury against Dortmund.

Gini Wijnaldum faces a late fitness test following a muscle problem.

The Citizens are still without the majority of their first team as they take a break following the World Cup, but Aymeric Laporte should come into the line-up after missing out last time through injury.

In an all-conquering campaign, there was no team that caused Guardiola's side more problems than Liverpool last season.

City lost just seven out of 57 matches in all competitions, with three of those coming at the hands of their North West neighbours.

With almost all of their big stars missing from a youthful travelling squad, it is hard to see the Premier League champions exacting revenge for those results in this clash.

Predictions

Able to call upon the majority of their experienced players and with more match practice under their belts this summer, Klopp's team are worth backing at those even odds (2.00) to come out on top once again.

Odds correct at the time of writing. Please gamble responsibly.
