Manchester City welcome the newly crowned Premier League Champions Liverpool to the Etihad Stadium as they look to cement their place in the Champions League for next season.

That’s as long as the current appeal against their UEFA ban goes to plan.

Liverpool meanwhile, now they have the title sewn up, will have an eye on breaking Manchester City’s 100 points record – the most set in a Premier League Season – which they achieved back in 2018.

To do that Jurgen Klopp’s men need another 14 points from their remaining 7 games.

City will give Liverpool a guard of honour before kick-off to mark their title win but that should be the end of pleasantries between the two clubs who have contested some fierce encounters in recent years with Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp claiming that this could be “the best game ever played behind closed doors”.

For the hosts, they will be without the suspended Fernandinho who is banned for 2 games whilst Eric Garcia could also miss out and Sergio Aguero has been sidelined for the remainder of the season with a knee injury.

For Liverpool, Joel Matip has an injured foot whilst will rule him out until next season but James Milner could play. He is rated 50/50 after picking up a hamstring injury in the recent win over Palace.

There may be no title to play for but there is certainly fabled bragging rights up for grabs between two teams that have proved themself this season to be the best in the Premier League.

Kick-off is at 8:15 GMT
