Tuesday morning (AEST) sees last year’s top two EPL sides clash when Manchester City  host Liverpool  at Etihad Stadium.

Last year’s champions got their defence off to the perfect start, with a solid 2-0  win away to Newcastle. Sergio Aguero came on as a late substitute to net City’s second goal, and the Argentinian is second favourite  to top the goal scoring charts at the end of the season. Edin Dzeko signed a contract extension midweek for the sky blues and it’s expected he will partner Aguero up front.

The Reds required a last-gasp goal from Daniel Sturridge last weekend to overcome a spirited Southampton, and they’ll hope they can continue their winning start. It's believed the Reds are on the cusp of signing ex-Manchester City striker Mario Balotelli from AC Milan. If the move's finalised, there's a chance the Italian will line up against his old club – although it's highly unlikely.    

City are firm favourites to topple Brendan Rogers’ men at home, however there has been support for Liverpool at a big price. The last five meetings between the two sides have all produced three or more goals , with a 2-2  draw occurring three times.
