Our prediction for this Premier League match:
There will be fireworks when Manchester City and Liverpool face each other in the Premier League derby at Etihad Stadium. Thanks to a thrilling 4-0 win over Crystal Palace the Reds won their first league title since 1990, meaning that they are brimming with confidence ahead of the trip to Manchester. Jurgen Klopp has a full starting XI to choose from, and, no doubt, his men will give 100% to put icing on the cake on a very successful season.
The Citizens, on the other hand, are hungry for revenge, and they are likely to go all guns blazing at Liverpool on Matchday 32. Kun Aguero remains in the recovery room, but home win should be considered as the Citizens want this win more than the Reds. Fernandinho was sent off in a 2-1 loss to Chelsea, and, as a result, he will miss the Premier League derby through suspension.
Highlighted Player (Sergio Aguero):
Sergio Aguero was born on 2 June, 1988 in Buenos Aires, the capital of Argentina. Sergio’s nickname is Kun and he used to play for Independiente and Atletico Madrid in the past. The Manchester City attacker has won two Premier League trophies with the Etihad Stadium outfit (2011/2012, 2013/2014) and he played in the Champions League semi-final with the Citizens in the 2015/2016 season. However, Real Madrid proved to be a big catch for Kun Aguero and his teammates in the semis of the elite competition.
The Argentine forward won the Olympic Gold Medal with the national team in 2008, while lifting the FIFA U-20 World Cup trophy on two occasions (2005, 2007). Aguero scored 24 goals in the 2015-16 Premier League campaign, but that did not help Manuel Pellegrini’s troops win the national championship.
Kun was married to Diego Maradona’s daughter Gianinna, but the couple separated in 2012. Giannina gave birth to their son Benjamin in 2009.
Highlighted Team (Liverpool):
Founded back in 1892, Liverpool are one of England’s and world’s most famous clubs. The Reds hold a high-profile rivalry with Everton and there have always been fireworks when the two teams take on each other in the Merseyside derby.
The Reds welcome their opponents at Anfield and it has to be noted that they have already won 18 first division trophies. Liverpool were on the verge of lifting the 2014/2015 Premier League trophy, but Steven Gerrard slipped in the decider against Chelsea and left the Reds without a title.
Liverpool won one of their last Champions League trophy's in 2005, with the team coming from three goals behind to beat Milan in a historic clash in Istanbul. The Reds have clinched six European Cups and it is no surprise they are regarded as one of the greatest European clubs.
The likes of Steven Gerrard, Robbie Fowler, Paul Ince, Ian Rush, Graeme Souness, Sami Hyypia and Luis Suarez are some of the most notable footballers to have represented the club over the years. The club’s anthem is You’ll Never Walk Alone and their shirt colour is red.
