Pep Guardiola outlines return timetable for Man City duo Ilkay Gundogan & Zinchenko

Liverpool vs Man City

The weekend’s marquee Premier League game will play out on Sunday afternoon.

Said match pits Liverpool against Manchester City at Anfield in a 4:30 pm UK time kick-off.

The two teams have dominated the English top-flight over the last couple of years, and are once again amongst the favourites to reign victorious this time around.

Liverpool head into the game having enjoyed a fine start to the season, which sees them stand as the only unbeaten side in the Premier League.

The Reds have won four and drawn two, leaving them top of the table by one point.

Manchester City, meanwhile, have won four, drawn one and lost one in the PL, but also fell to a 2-0 defeat at the hands of PSG in the Champions League earlier this week.

Everyone is fit except Zinchenko and Gundogan. We expect both back after the international break, hopefully.
