The defending champions find themselves eight points behind league leaders Arsenal, with a match in hand, and cannot afford to slip up further to keep their title ambitions alive.

The two teams last met each other in the Carabao Cup where Pep Guardiola's troops earned a thrilling 3-2 victory over the Reds, courtesy of goals from Erling Haaland, Riyad Mahrez and Nathan Ake.

On the other hand, Liverpool find themselves in the sixth spot with 42 points from 26 matches. However, they have the opportunity to do the league double over the Sky Blues as they won the reverse fixture at Anfield after a 76th-minute goal by Mohamed Salah.

A win would cut down the deficit with fifth-placed Newcastle United to three points and if the Magpies falter to Manchester United a day later, then a European berth could well be within reach for Jurgen Klopp's men.
