Man City have been chasing Arsenal virtually all season, and that hasn’t changed even heading into the final stretch of the campaign. They sit eight points behind the Gunners, but have 11 matches left to try and catch up. City are unbeaten in their last six EPL matches, going 5-0-1 in that stretch. Erling Haaland has been dealing with a groin injury and is listed as doubtful ahead of the match against Liverpool, though City manager Pep Guardiola will be anxious to get the league’s leading scorer back in action.

Liverpool are still reeling from their Champions League exit after Real Madrid eliminated them from the Round of 16 with a 6-2 aggregate score. The Reds are 4-1-1 in their last six EPL matches and are looking to make it back in the top four to secure a Champions League spot for next year. They sit in sixth place, five points behind fifth-place Newcastle and just seven points behind Tottenham, who sit in fourth and currently hold the final UCL berth.

The Reds have a slew of players on their injury list, including Luis Diaz (knee), Jordan Henderson (virus), and Darwin Nunez (ankle), who are all listed as doubtful ahead of Saturday’s match. City have the better team on the day and shouldn’t have a whole lot of trouble securing all three points over Liverpool at home.
