Liverpool to continue unbeaten run over Man City at the Etihad

The kick-off is scheduled for 12:30 BST/07:30 ET.

Manchester City full-back Benjamin Mendy has revealed that he used last season's Champions League game at the Etihad Stadium as an audition for a move to the club. Both sides sit in the top four after collecting seven points from their opening three games.

WITH a momentum-halting global break firmly behind us, the Premier League races back into action with a clash between two of the division's big hitters.

A 4-0 thrashing of a compliant Arsenal side before the global break means Juergen Klopp's side have seven points from nine during an opening period in which they also safely negotiated a Champions League playoff against Hoffenheim.

Kompany played the full 90 minutes as Belgium thrashed Gibraltar 9-0 in their 2018 World Cup qualifier last Thursday but sat out of the 2-1 win over Greece on Sunday - a win which saw Belgium clinch their place in next summer's competition in Russian Federation. A win for either side in this match would send the victors to the top.

Pep Guardiola's side needed a last second goal against Bournemouth in their previous fixture and dropped points against Everton last month. Pep Guardioala has assembled talented players but they have been far from convincing so far. City weren't dominant or coherent in their play.

Mendy made his debut in the 2-1 win against Bournemouth two weeks ago, and knows he is going to have to be at his best to combat a rampant Liverpool attack.

"Liverpool have been impressive but defensively against Watford and the last game other teams having chances, especially from set-pieces".

Liverpool didn't have the best start to the season but are level with City on seven points. The earlier signings of Mohamed Salah, Andrew Robertson and Dominic Solanke are already settling in nicely.

This really is a tantalising fixture, perhaps even the game of the season so far in terms of potential entertainment and the likelihood of goals.
