Liverpool will travel to Manchester City on Thursday for their next Premier League clash and will receive a guard of honour from the departing champions as confirmed by City boss Pep Guardiola. ‘Always we receive Liverpool when they come to our house in an incredible way. They cannot complain and of course, we are going to do it because they deserve it.’ Said the 49-year-old.
With the title already secured, Liverpool will now have their eyes set on Manchester City’s record of 100 points in a single Premier League season. Jurgen Klopp’s men must accumulate 15 of the possible 21 points to surpass the record set by Pep Guardiola’s team in the 2017-28 season.
