Chris Kavanagh will take charge of Manchester City’s Premier League clash against Liverpool at the Etihad Stadium on Saturday afternoon.

Manchester City have the opportunity to move four points clear of Liverpool at the top of the Premier League table this weekend, if Pep Guardiola’s side can secure their third consecutive win over Jurgen Klopp’s revitalised squad.

The Blues beat the Merseyside club 4-1 at the Etihad Stadium last April, coming from behind to secure an important victory en route to the Premier League title.

Manchester City are unbeaten at home since December 2022, last suffering defeat at the Etihad Stadium to Brentford prior to the FIFA World Cup in Qatar.

Guardiola’s side are set to imminently host title rivals Liverpool and Tottenham at the Etihad Stadium, with the 23-match unbeaten streak looking to be extended over the next two weekends.

Manchester City are unbeaten in all competitions since early October, meanwhile Liverpool haven’t lost a Premier League game since September.
