Liverpool legend, Jamie Carragher has shared his forecast for the Reds’ upcoming Premier League clash against the defending champions, Manchester City on Saturday, November 25.
The Cityzens will host the Merseysiders at the Etihad Stadium for their 13th league game of the 2023/24 campaign.
In a game between first and second, Carragher has predicted his former side to get a draw at best on Saturday.
He said on Stick to Football on Sky Sports: “It will be tough – the best Liverpool will get is a draw. Liverpool’s record there is poor. Liverpool have the best goalkeeper in the world and they’ll definitely need him. Liverpool’s defensive record has been really good this season and Virgil Van Dijk has been not too far away from his best.”
He added: “But there are still chinks in the armour with Robertson out, Trent in that midfield going back to fullback, and I’m thinking of Doku coming up against him. Also, Liverpool defensively in midfield still haven’t really got that top class number six, so it will be dificult. The best they’ll get is a draw.”
Last season, this fixture ended in a 4-1 win for Manchester City. Julian Alvarez, Kevin De Bruyne, llkay Gundogan and Jack Grealish scored for City, while Mohamed Salah got a consolation goal for the visitors.
