The latest installment of the battle for supremacy Manchester City vs. Liverpool takes place at the Etihad on Thursday afternoon (3:00 PM – PERUVIAN TIME), when the English powerhouses meet in the fourth round of the EFL Cup. Pep Guardiola’s side knocked Chelsea out of the tournament to advance to the fourth round, while the Reds needed penalties to beat Derby County in the third round.
The EFL Cup has been a regular prize for Guardiola since the Catalan coach landed in Manchester, but the English champions have bigger fish to fry as they strive to dethrone surprise package Arsenal at the top of the Premier League table. The City boss surely feels a slight sense of pride at seeing his former protégé Mikel Arteta dominate the Premier League landscape in recent months, as Man City resumed their domestic duties and sat five points behind Arsenal in the standings following their dramatic late defeat to Brentford.
Manchester City’s doctors have enjoyed a rare period of respite, with none of Guardiola’s players currently injured, and Germany’s Ilkay Gundogan returned in time to start against Girona along with Haaland and De Bruyne. Only Julian Alvarez made it past the quarterfinals in Qatar and is still basking in the glory of becoming a World Cup winner with Argentina, but Rodri, Aymeric Laporte, Manuel Akanji and Nathan Ake, who was left out in the round of 16, could return soon.
In contrast, a couple of beds are still occupied in Liverpool’s injury ward by Diogo Jota, Arthur and Luis Diaz, the latter of whom suffered a worrying setback in his recovery from a knee injury and had to undergo surgery. Liverpool has no 2022 World Cup winners in their ranks, but Ibrahima Konate will return with a runner-up medal, and Klopp has played down the possibility of Virgil van Dijk returning for this tournament.
