Teams: Manchester City v Liverpool
Date: 09 September 2017
Pep Guardiola's Manchester City welcome an in-form Liverpool to the Etihad this afternoon.
The match is scheduled to get underway at 13h30.
City returned to winning ways before the international break after they came from behind to defeat Bournemouth 2-1.
Liverpool, meanwhile, were in ruthless mood in their last match as they thumped Arsenal 4-0 at Anfield.
Pep Guardiola will be without Raheem Sterling, who sent off against Bournemouth, while Vincent Kompany misses out through injury.
While Philippe Coutinho, Adam Lallana and Nathaniel Clyne are out for Liverpool.
When these two sides met in this fixture last season, the shares were spoiled when Sergio Aguero cancelled out James Milner's penalty.
Here's how they line up:
City: Ederson; Walker, Stones, Otamendi, Mendy, Danilo; Fernandinho; De Bruyne, Silva; Aguero, Jesus.
Liverpool: Mignolet; Alexander-Arnold, Matip, Klavan, Moreno; Henderson, Can; Wijnaldum, Salah, Mane; Firmino.
