Will he go for the kill in a bid to push City to double figures behind in the race?

Or will a point suffice in the long game at this stage?

The main dilemma for Klopp is in midfield: Gini Wijnaldum looks a certain starter, but Fabinho or Jordan Henderson could come out with Fabinho another option.

A front three, rather than an overly attacking four including Xherdan Shaqiri, seems to be inevitable too.

Alberto Moreno may deputise for Andy Robertson, who could be omitted for personal reasons.

Liverpool predicted XI

Alisson; Alexander-Arnold, Van Dijk, Lovren, Robertson; Wijnaldum, Fabinho, Henderson; Salah, Firmino, Mane

Manchester City are expected to make big changes ahead of the crucial clash against top of the table Liverpool this evening.

City boss Pep Guardiola now has midfield ace Kevin De Bruyne back from injury in his armoury and is likely to use him for additional firepower in midfield alongside Spaniard David Silva.

The Belgium international racked up an impressive 16 assists last campaign and City could do with his creativity in the middle of the pitch this evening.

Fernandinho is expected to keep his spot in a three man midfield to provide the centre backs with some much needed cover against Liverpool’s dangerous front three, which caused Arsenal a lot of problems in their last game.

Kyle Walker is expected to return at right back along with England teammate John Stones in Cities backline.

Laporte is favourite to partner Stones at the back with Ukrainian Oleksandr Zinchenko who completes the back four due to a injury for Benjamin Mendy and a suspension to Fabian Delph.

Leroy Sane is likely to replace Riyad Mahrez on the wing with Raheem Sterling and Sergio Aguero keeping their places in attack.

Ederson is favourite to play between the sticks for City tonight, his composure on the ball and excellent distribution wouldn’t go amiss in what is a must win game for the reigning champions.

Real Madrid vs Villarreal

Real Madrid vs Villarreal Betting Tips: Latest odds, team news, preview and predictions.The opening La Liga match of the year could see a cagey opening to it, with first half goals set to be at a premium at El Madrigal this season.Real Madrid play their first La Liga match of 2019 on Thursday night against Villarreal at the Estadio de la Ceramica.


The fixture was due to take place in December but was rearranged due to Los Blancos’ participation in the Club World Cup, where they were crowned champions for a third straight season, and will aim to begin the new year with a fourth successive league victory.

Latest odds

The hosts rounded off the previous twelve months in the relegation zone and their home form has been particularly poor. Villarreal have won just one home match in La Liga all season and bet365 offer them at 3/1 (4.00) to improve that record on Thursday.

Real Madrid have been far from their best on the road winning just two of their last seven away games, but the European champions are offered at 5/6 (1.83) with the draw available at 29/10 (3.90).

Team news

Midfielder Marcos Llorente has been ruled out with a muscle injury for Real Madrid, with Casemiro likely to take his place. Marco Asensio and Mariano Diaz remain unavailable for Solari.

Villarreal have captain Mario Gaspar suspended for the clash after his red card at Huesca.


The Estadio de la Ceramica is usually a tough place to visit but this term Villarreal have struggled badly in front of their own fans, with their only first half goal of the season at home coming back in August.

Real Madrid too have not been flying out of the blocks away from home, with Solari’s side managing only three goals in the opening half of their eight games on the road so far.

On a winter night in the middle of the week with a late kick off of 9.30pm local time (8:30pm UK time), there is every chance that these two sides fail to score an early goal once more.

Tips and predictions

Six of the eight league matches played at the Estadio de la Ceramica this term have been goalless at the break and under 0.5 goals in the opening 45 minutes is offered at 5/2 (3.50). Opposing a goal before 25 minutes also looks like an excellent option at 5/6 (1.83).

Express Sport brings you everything you need to know about the match including live stream, kick off time, TV channel, team news and odds.


Manchester City host Liverpool in a huge Premier League showdown at the Etihad this evening.

The reigning champions are seven points adrift of Liverpool and need to produce a big performance to claw their way back into the title race.

Boss Pep Guardiola said: “I have the feeling it is a big opportunity for us to reduce the gap but our focus is the same,” he said.

“Everybody asks what we are going to do if we lose but we are going to try to make our game and to win it.”

However, Liverpool will be brimming with confidence ahead of the game having not been defeated in their 2018/19 Premier League campaign so far.

Manager Jurgen Klopp was keen to play down the importance of the tie though, saying: “[It’s] a normal game against Manchester City, a very difficult one, one of the most difficult games you can play in the modern football world.

“We felt that plenty of times. It’s a really strong football team with an outstanding manager.

“We have to be prepared as good as possible, we have to be brave, we have to be full of desire, angry, like in all the other games.”

Man City vs Liverpool team news

Kevin De Bruyne is Guardiola’s biggest worry ahead of the table-topping showdown.

The Belgian star is a major doubt to start but could earn a place on the bench after recovering from another injury problem.

Benjamin Mendy remains sidelined while Fabian Delph is suspended meaning Oleksandr Zinchenko is likely to continue at left-back.

Liverpool ace James Milner is a doubt to face his former team, but most of Klopp’s usual suspects will be raring to go.

PGA Tour

PGA Tour in 2019.January 3, 2019 12:26pm EST January 3, 2019 12:26pm EST Preview, PGA Tour, Golf, News, English, Rory McIlroy, Hyundai Tournament of Champions The four-time major winner is a permanent U.S. resident as of last year and will place more of an emphasis on staying in America.


Rory McIlroy wants to get off to a fast start in this year’s PGA Tour, explaining his decision to begin 2019 at the Tournament of Champions in Hawaii.

McIlroy, 29, usually starts the year on the European Tour but has opted for a greater focus on the United States this year.

The four-time major champion from Northern Ireland said he wanted to take the chance to make a better start to the year, beginning at Kapalua.

“I wanted to get off to a good start, an early start,” McIlroy told a news conference Wednesday. “I feel like every time I show up to the start of the year on the PGA Tour other guys have played nearly 10 events and I’m sort of playing my first or my second one.

“So I wanted to try and start a little bit early, get a few more starts under my belt before the big bulk of the season kicks in.

“It’s going to be nice to get a faster start and hopefully be up in the FedEx Cup from the beginning.”

McIlroy’s 2019 schedule has been a controversial topic ever since he indicated he might not retain his European Tour membership.

It appears now that McIlroy will play the four European Tour events required to keep membership, but, he noted Wednesday, he’s a permanent U.S. resident as of last year and will place more of an emphasis on staying in America.

“I made the decision that this is where my life is going to be, this is where I’m going to live,” McIlroy said. “Having to hop back and forth from the states to Europe and back again, there’s not a lot of that going on which is a good thing. My focus has always been the biggest events in the world since I got into that top 50, but even more so now because of wanting to travel less and wanting to spend more time at home.”

Villarreal vs Real Madrid

Villarreal vs Real Madrid : La Liga prediction, pick, TV channel, live stream, watch online, time.Los Blancos are hoping to stay near the top, while Villarreal is in real trouble.


Real Madrid’s participation in the Club World Cup saw its match against Villarreal rescheduled, and that game will take place on Thursday as Los Blancos look to get back into the title race. There’s plenty on the line with a trip to Eastern Spain, with the hosts also looking to get out of the relegation battle.

Here’s how you can watch the match and what to know:

La Liga: Real Madrid vs. Villarreal

  • Date: Thursday, Jan. 3
  • Time: 3:30 p.m. ET

  • TV channel: beIN Sports

  • Odds: Real Madrid -120 / Villarreal +290 / Draw +290


Real Madrid: After that slow start, Real Madrid is within striking distance of getting back into the title race. A win here would move Real to 32 points, just five behind leader Barcelona with more than half of the season to go. Real has won three league games in a row and has a chance to extend its winning streak with winnable matches in the coming weeks. Could Santiago Solari get this team contending for the league after Cristiano Ronaldo’s departure?

Villarreal: It’s nearly time to hit the panic button at Villarreal. The club is in 18th place in the league and has scored just 17 goals in 16 games. The team isn’t conceding much, but it isn’t scoring, and something needs to change. A loss here will leave the Yellow Submarine in the drop zone and a point from safety. But if you don’t start getting points now, it can snowball. The club has earned just one point from its last three games.

Real Madrid vs. Villarreal prediction

Gareth Bale and Karim Benzema both score, and Real jumps into the title race with three vital points.

Liverpool vs Manchester City

Liverpool vs Manchester City : Premier League prediction, pick, TV channel, live stream, watch online, kick time.There’s a lot on the line at the Etihad on Thursday.


It’s the biggest clash so far of the 2018-19 Premier League season. Third-place Manchester City hosts first-place Liverpool on Thursday in the first game of 2019 for both teams, and it’s a contest that could go a long way in deciding who ends up winning the league come the spring.

Jurgen Klopp’s team enters the game with an undefeated record at 17-3-0 and 54 points, while City has 48 points with a record of 15-2-3. City has led the league for most of the season, but recent results has turned the tide, putting Liverpool in the driver’s seat in the new year.

Here’s how you can watch the match and what to know:

Premier League: Man. City vs. Liverpool

  • Date: Thursday, Jan. 3
  • Time: 3 p.m. ET
  • Location: Etihad Stadium in Manchester
  • TV channel: NBCSN
  • Streaming: fuboTV (Try for free)
  • Odds: Man. City +100 / Liverpool +250 / Draw +270


Man. City: City lost its scoring touch a bit in recent weeks. From Dec. 8 to Boxing Day, the club lost three of its four Premier League games, scoring three goals in the three losses. In the seven games leading up to the rough patch, City scored 26 goals. But the issue hasn’t been the creativity. The team has been able to consistently threaten, but there are just times when the ball won’t go in. City better hope Thursday isn’t one of those days, because a loss could see them on the verge of being too far behind in the title race.

Liverpool: No team is playing better than Liverpool. The Reds have scored at least three goals in each of their last four games, having put five past Arsenal last time out. And with a win here, the Reds would go 10 points clear of City. But on the road, getting a draw will feel like a really good point for this club.

Liverpool vs. Manchester City prediction

An even match sees each team get golden chances late, but the goalkeepers come up big as the match ends in a draw.
