The Premier League returns on Saturday and what a game to welcome back the best domestic league in the world. Champions Manchester City hosted last season’s runners up Liverpool in a massive game for the title and the race for a Champions League spot at the end of the season.

Erling Haaland has not taken part in any international matches due to a ‘slight’ injury, so he should be ready to go in this key match up for the hosts. Erling Haaland has taken the Premier League by storm and will be booking to add to his tally of goals this season by scoring against Liverpool.

Manchester City currently lie 8 points behind leaders Arsenal with a game in hand and this is one of their toughest fixtures on paper remaining, so will be looking to kick-start the run in wit a win.

Liverpool have been very inconsistent this season, thus languishing outside the top 4 as it stands and not in a title challenge. Mo Salah will be looking to add to his tally of goals this season against Manchester City with the hope his side can secure a win on the road.
