Manchester City FC
Since losing their match against Tottenham Hotspur on February 20, Manchester City (23-4-3, 73 points) have been on a four-game unbeaten run, winning three matches against Everton, Manchester United and Burnley. Those 10 points were important for the Sky Blues as Liverpool is fast catching up. In those four matches, defense was the key for the Pep Guardiola-mentored side as they have allowed one goal during those games. In their last outing against Burnley, Bruyne and Gundogan punctured the net. It is when scored in the fifth and 25th minutes respectively to hand City the cushion needed to win the game. The victory retained the Sky Blues’ one-point lead over Liverpool heading to the big-time clash. Manchester City will again rely on the trio of De Bruyne, Raheem Sterling and Riyad Mahrez. Their defense was also solid as they have allowed only 18 goals in 30 games all season long.
