Klopptonite? Guardiola anticipates Liverpool title challenge

Cassandra Gardner | 14 May, 2018, 04:15

Clichy joined City from Arsenal back in 2011 and he went onto represent the club 203 times over six seasons before his departure to current club İstanbul Başakşehir last summer.

The City boss donned the sky blue shirt for the Premier League title ceremony on Thursday and he pulled on this season's maroon away shirt on Friday to give the office staff a helping hand in the charity game.

Steven Davis is ruled out for the hosts.

City are obvious favourites to win the game at their best odds of 4/9 at BetVictor.

Saints' vastly superior goal difference means even defeat to Manchester City at St Mary's on Sunday is unlikely to threaten their survival now. Jan Bednarek and Mario Lemina are both doubts.

Liverpool, meanwhile, have still not secured a place in the Champions League next season - despite reaching this year's final.

No team in English top-flight history has ever managed a three-figure tally of points over a season, but that milestone is within Manchester City's grasp.

It's believed that the soundtrack is organized chronologically like most Star Wars soundtracks have done in the past. Ahead of the movie's release on May 25, Star Wars: Battlefront II will launch a Han Solo season .


Manager Pep Guardiola has set the bar incredibly high this term, but after failures in the Champions League and FA Cup, there remains room for improvement.

"Since I've come in I haven't seen negativity but I've been told there was between the fans and the club".

There are no fresh injury concerns for Guardiola to contend with heading into the game, with the only major absentee being star striker Sergio Aguero, who has missed close to a month of action with a knee injury.

"They are champions - it doesn't matter they don't have medals". West Brom, Oxygen Liverpool vs. Brighton, NBCManchester United vs. Watford, USANewcastle vs. Chelsea, NBCSNSouthampton vs. Manchester City, SyfySwansea vs.

Saints all but staved off Premier League relegation with Tuesday's 1-0 win over rivals-for-the-drop Swansea, but Hughes continues to hunt for another positive result.

'I am not saying he's the best, as other managers have had success with different methods, but he certainly shows you a different way of feeling and seeing football.

The ever-present duo of Cedric Soares and Ryan Bertrand will take up the wing-back slots on the right and the left sides respectively and look to curtail the threat from the visitors' wingers.
