Next Sunday, November 10th, Manchester City will finally play their first match of the season against an elite European team. The FOURMIDABLES travel to Anfield for a massive showdown against table topping Liverpool.
Liverpool haven’t lost a Premier League game at Anfield in 45 appearances. They haven’t lost domestically in almost a year (last January at City). They’re six points clear of City. This season in all competitions, they’ve played and beaten or drawn:
- Arsenal (2x)
- Leicester City
- Manchester United
- Red Bull Salzburg
Here are the major clubs Manchester City has played:
They drew them.
That’s it. They’ve played no one in the EPL. Their Champions League group is the weakest. Even in the Carabao Cup–where they’re adorably rolling out nearly their best line-up–has been a cake walk.
Yet…Manchester City are favored over Liverpool next weekend.
