Why Erling Haaland & Phil Foden are missing for Manchester City vs Liverpool

Manchester City face off with Liverpool on Saturday afternoon.

Manchester City host Liverpool in the first Premier League game back since the international break.

The Sky Blues head into the match knowing they can pile some pressure on league leaders, Arsenal as the race for the Premier League title heats up.

Arsenal are eight points clear ahead of kick-off on Saturday, but Manchester City have a game in hand and must play the Gunners again before the campaign is over, meaning that gap could easily be reduced to two points.

And with Mikel Arteta’s side not in action until the 3 pm kick-offs, it is a great chance for Pep Guardiola and co. to add so more pressure to the north Londoners, who are looking to secure their first league title since 2004.

However, Manchester City will have to face Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool without two of their key men.

Both Erling Haaland – the league’s top goalscorer – and Phil Foden, are missing from the matchday squad to take on the Reds.
