This is probably the most spectacular meeting of the UEFA Champions League quarter finals, with the best English teams from an attacking point of view. The game is scheduled for Wednesday evening at 19:45, local time.
Liverpool have shown a good form recently and they are getting closer to a Top 4 finish once again in Premier League. Jurgen Klopp and his players are hungry for European success and they will certainly give their best here. Gomez and Lallana are injured, while Emre Can is doubtful right now. Liverpool won the last home meeting with City, 4-3 in January, conceding the last two goals in the finals minutes.
Manchester City is favourites ahead of the first leg, but Guardiola's side had big problems against Liverpool in the past few years, especially at Anfield Road. City are in top form, leading the table in England and having no concerns about title race. The Citizens can focus 100% on UEFA Champions League and this is probably the most important game of the season so far.
Liverpool vs Manchester City probable lineups:
Liverpool (4-3-3): Karius - Arnold, Matip, Dijk, Robertson - Chamberlain, Henderson, Milner - Salah, Firmino, Mane.
Manchester City (4-3-3): Bravo - Walker, Kompany, Otamendi - Bruyne, Fernandinho, Silva - Sterling, Aguero, Sane.
