After an abysmal performance in midweek against AS Monaco, City will play host to Liverpool this Sunday hoping to take another step closer to qualifying for next season’s Champions League.
Guardiola will need to make some necessary changes to the City starting XI with many proving they were unworthy of starting against their Merseyside rivals.
Many supporters head into the clash confident of their recent domestic form, but hiccups against Monaco and Stoke have witnessed frailties starting to appear in Guardiola’s new-look City side once again. With the Premier League title nearing impossible, claiming a top-four finish remains the priority for City next season.
This Sunday’s opponents Liverpool arrive at the Etihad in abysmal form having won only three Premier League games since the teams met on December 31st – with Liverpool winning 1-0.
City have won three of the last five home games against Liverpool and lost just won during that time. For City to overcome Liverpool, he must pick this starting XI.
