The last meeting

Liverpool and City began 2019 with an absorbing encounter at Etihad Stadium, settled by the finest of margins as the teams slugged it out for the Premier League title.

Goals from Sergio Aguero and Leroy Sane sandwiched Roberto Firmino's second-half equaliser for the visitors and took the three points for the home side.

What the managers say

"It's a game and if we had only eight players available, for example, I would like to try to win it. It's a final. We'll try to be as ready as possible. We have to make sure we have a line-up that gives us an opportunity to win the game and that's what we try."

Jürgen Klopp

"[Klopp] is a top manager, incredible, so good. It is an incredible challenge for me every time we face his teams. His message is always positive in the way he plays, it's so good for football."

Pep Guardiola


In the last 12 meetings between the clubs in all competitions, Liverpool have won seven and drawn three. Their two defeats both came at Etihad Stadium.
