Almost half of the EPL season has passed. Following its results, the main contenders for the title are Manchester City and Liverpool, and it is their face-to-face match that will be largely decisive in terms of the fight for the title.
The match of two key contenders for the victory in the Premier League will be held at the very beginning of 2019, on January 3.

Here, the information is updated in real time, so you will not miss anything.
There is still some time left before the match, so we won’t take into account possible injuries the players might have before the game. It is worth noting that Klopp is the most ‘difficult’ coach for Guardiola; the previous season it was Jurgen’s team that stopped City in the Champions League.
However, in the upcoming match the Citizens will be considered as favorites. There are several reasons for this:
- Home arena. Manchester City looks very interesting in its own stadium and hardly leaves any chance to its opponents. As a result, their rivals rarely score here, let alone victories. Naturally, Liverpool has such experience, but let’s not forget that the previous season the match between these teams in Manchester in the Premier League ended with a scandal, the red card for Sadio Mane and the scorching victory of the Citizens.
- Great lineup and form of the leaders. Now Aguero, Sane, Sterling, Dawad Silva are in fantastic form. It is thanks to them, as well as to a well-coordinated defense led by Ederson, that Manchester City landed on the first position in the English Premier League standings.
- Great opportunities to strengthen the team during the game. Despite the fact that in the summer Liverpool managed to make a number of important transfers, the host’s lineup for the upcoming match looks better.
In the first round, the competition of these teams ended in a draw 0: 0, while Riyad Mahrez failed to realize a penalty.
We will see how events will take shape this time and who will manage to win this “match for 6 points”.
