The Premier League will get its first taste of Klopp vs. Guardiola on this New Year’s Eve as Manchester City visit Liverpool for the last big game of 2016. It’s a much anticipated event for football fans, although Blues will be apprehensive as ever about a trip to a stadium we last won at in 2003.
With a new era under Pep, Liverpool key men Philippe Coutinho and Joel Matip injured, and the unpredictability of the Premier League as a whole, perhaps the long winless run at Anfield can come to an end today.
Craig Pawson is the man in charge of officiating the game, and here are the teams Pep and Klopp have selected:
Liverpool XI: Mignolet, Clyne, Klavan, Lovren, Milner, Henderson, Can, Wijnaldum, Lallana, Mane, Firmino
Manchester City XI: Bravo, Zabaleta, Stones, Otamendi, Kolarov, Fernandinho, Yaya Toure, Sterling, Silva, De Bruyne, Aguero
Today’s match can be viewed on BT Sport 1 in the UK. A full list of TV coverage from around the world can be found here.
