This is the clash between the champion of the 2019 - 2020 season with the defending champion, the competition between the two teams that are at the top of the table and second in the group. The match of the team that owns the strongest attack today with the team with the most solid defense in the Premier League at the moment.

Before entering this Super Sunday match, Liverpool and Man City had opposite results in the Champions League in the middle of the week. The Kop had a jubilant victory when defeating Porto 5 - 1, while The Citizens fell 0 - 2 to PSG. Along with the home field advantage, Liverpool is determined to take advantage of the opportunity to increase the distance with the opponent in the rankings.

The Red Brigade is the team with the strongest attack in the Premier League. Coach Jurgen Klopp's team has scored 15 goals in the past 6 matches. The attacking quartet Salah, Mane, Firmino and Jota are playing extremely impressively.

Currently, Liverpool is the only team that is still unbeaten after 6 rounds and is leading the rankings with 14 points. They are returning to their best form when pillars like Van Dijk, Salah, Mane are all playing stably.

Klopp's teachers and students are considered to be the psychologically dominant team when playing at Anfield. Here, they are maintaining an exciting performance when they won 5 and only split points once in the last 6 matches in all competitions.

Meanwhile, Man City this season plays very firmly. They are possessing the best defense in the Premier League with the leader being Ruben Dias. Up to this point, the goal in the opening match of the season against Tottenham is still the only goal in the Premier League.

Man City's way of playing this season has also changed a lot, especially in the big battles. Instead of attacking aggressively, The Citizens focused on controlling the middle of the field, then choosing the moment to suddenly speed up to beat the opponent like in the recent match against Chelsea.

This match, fans will witness the competition between the two top coaches in the world on the chair, Jurgen Klopp and Pep Guardiola. In the English Premier League, these two strategists are currently rivals, a pair of rivals.

Among the coaches who have competed with Guardiola 10 times or more, the only one on par with Guardiola is Juergen Klopp: won 9, drew 3, lost 9. The rest no one won more than lost. The person who has clashed with Guardiola the most is Jose Mourinho who has competed 25 times, winning only 7, losing 12.

Notably, in the last 7 clashes between these two coaches, Guardiola only lost once. In the last 3 matches in the Premier League, Man City won 4 - 0, 4 - 1 and drew 1 - 1 against Liverpool.

Contrary to the excellence of the defense, the strikers of Man City are disappointing. Coach Guardiola is causing experts to debate his options for the Manchester City squad, regarding whether or not there is a real central striker. This strategist still pursues the "virtual 9" scheme for Man City, just like what he did with Barca with the excellent Lionel Messi. At Man City, coach Guardiola still often chooses Sterling and is directing Ferran Torres to play in this position.

In the previous round, in the trip to Chelsea, Pep Guardiola chose Gabriel Jesus and the Brazilian striker was effective when scoring the only goal to make Man City become the first team to win Chelsea this season.

However, in the match against Paris St Germain in the Champions League, Pep ranked Raheem Sterling for the role, but Sterling performed poorly and Man City returned with a 0-2 defeat.

Before the 1-0 win over Chelsea, Man City also let Southampton hold a 0-0 draw in the English Premier League. It can be seen that the attack power of Man City is not as strong as expected.

Fans are waiting for coach Pep Guardiola to come up with a plan for Man City to play at Liverpool's lair, the team that owns the famous midfielder Virgil van Dijk.

Expected starting lineups of 2 teams:

Liverpool: Alisson, Milner, Matip, Dijk, Robertson, Henderson, Fabinho, Jones, Salah, Jota, Mane

Man City: Ederson, Walker, Dias, Laporte, Cancelo, Silva, Rodri, Foden, Jesus, Bruyne, Grealish
