Jürgen Klopp ‘s managerial record against Pep Guardiola is pretty close. The duo have met 21 times, winning and losing 9 each, and the rest is only 3 draws.
Tonight’s game will be the 22nd game of the pair in the duel. Compare to the last 5 games of all competitions, Liverpool are consider slightly better, with the Reds unbeaten, scoring 17, but losing 6 goals, leading to Leaders both in the league and in the Champions League group stage. While Manchester City’s latest game in the middle of the week lost 0-2 to PSG. Which is considered not much damage. Overall offensive form is still aggressive, scoring 13 goals in the last 5 games, but what has changed is that This season, they have clearly improved defensively.
In the Premier League so far, City have conceded just one goal in their opening game of the season against Spurs, and they have kept a consistent clean sheet in the league. In the big game that beat Chelsea last week, Tuchel’s team couldn’t hit a single shot on target. That shows how tight the defensive regulations have been for City this year.
However, in the European Cup, City have concede as many goals in five of their two games, and Liverpool may need to take this point to study. Where the gap should be take in tonight’s game. British outlet Sky Sports have pointe out that City’s defences are often trouble against high-speed players. With Liverpool’s Salah and Mane more likely to attack, especially counter-attacks.
The player that the British media has been keeping an eye on is Mo Salah
The Egyptian has been in top form this season, scoring 5 in the league, taking 25 shots, 15 shots on target, creating eight chances for his team-mates, all of which are number 1 in the record. Playe in the Premier League this year, in addition, Salah is also consider a badass for City. He has hit the Blues in four of his five games played at Anfield. Plus, the latest match against Porto has taken two more tablets. Which is called the form that is on the most pot. It is a dangerous player that may be the one who decides this game.
For me, I choose to look at Jota that might be the best in this game. Even according to the expected line-up to sit as a reserve, it’s true. But believe that if you enter the field He will answer the question of scoring well. especially the headers and the snatched balls
Jota is a player who runs between the gaps in the midfield and the defender quite well. Including also inserting into the center of the center when the ball from the edge of the open line came well Jota’s movement has been a boon to Mane and Salah, as they are able to pull off a good defender. In addition, not standing in the middle It also allows the opponent’s support line to open the gap if the mark is lost. If the offensive game is dull, sending Jota down in the second half should definitely create a new dimension in the offensive game.
As for City, there’s almost nothing to worry about. Pep faces a team that fits very well in almost every position. The problem that Liverpool will face, like other teams, is that City choose De Bruyne as a central striker and play independently like when Messi. Zi plays with Barcelona and can also swap the flowers with Grealish and Jesus to draw a smooth splicer. Like in the game against Chelsea
