  1. BreakingTeam news

    Wolves v Aston Villa (14:00 GMT)

    Wolves XI

    Wolves head coach Nuno Espirito Santo sticks with the same XI that started the 1-1 draw at Arsenal in their last Premier League match.

    That means central defender Ryan Bennett starts on the bench after making a late substitute appearance in the Europa League on Thursday.

    Wolves XI: Patricio, Dendoncker, Coady, Saiss, Doherty, Moutinho, Neves, Jota, Jonny, Traore, Jimenez

    Subs: Ruddy, Bennett, Neto, Cutrone, Perry, Vinagre, Kilman

    Villa XI

    Aston Villa are still without Jack Grealish, while Tom Heaton and Bjorn Engels are missing from the side that started their narrow defeat to Liverpool just over a week ago.

    That means Jed Steer starts in goal with Ezri Konsa coming into the defence.

    Aston Villa XI: Steer, Guilbert, Konsa, Mings, Targett, Luiz, McGinn, El Ghazi, Nakamba, Trezeguet, Wesley

    Subs: Nyland,Taylor, Chester, Lansbury, Hourihane, Kodjia, Elmohamady

  2. BreakingTeam news - Williams makes first league start for United

    Man Utd v Brighton (14:00 GMT)

    Just the one change by United from the team that lost at Bournemouth, with 19-year-old Brandon Williams making his first Premier League start in place of the suspended Ashley Young.

    Man United starting XI: De Gea, Wan-Bissaka, Lindelof, Maguire, Williams, McTominay, Fred, Pereira, James, Rashford, Martial.

    Substitutes: Romero, Jones, Mata, Lingard, Rojo, Greenwood, Garner

    Graham Potter makes two tweaks to the starting lineup from the one that beat Norwich, with Shane Duffy and Leandro Trossard coming in for Adam Webster and Pascal Groß.

    Brighton starting XI: Ryan, Montoya, Duffy, Dunk, Burn, Trossard, Pröpper, Stephens, Alzate, Maupay, Connolly.

    Substitutes: Button, Groß, Balogun, Murray, Mooy, March, Schelotto

  3. Highest-quality Premier League game ever?

    Liverpool v Man City (16:30 GMT)

    For an hour or so last Saturday it looked like both Liverpool and Manchester City were going to lose. The last time that happened on the same Premier League weekend, let alone the same day, was December 2016.

    The two clubs have since elevated themselves to a new plateau, one where dropping points is no longer an option. In the world of the sub-two-hour marathon, the Premier League is now a nine-month sprint.

    So is this game shaping up to be highest-quality Premier League game ever?

  4. 'If City win today they will be in the driving seat'

    Liverpool v Man City (16:30 GMT)

    Clinton Morrison

    Former Crystal Palace striker on BBC Radio 5 Live

    Last season Manchester City were 10 points behind Liverpool at one point, but this season Liverpool look like a different team.

    This is definitely a crucial game, of course we are still in November both teams would want to win it but Liverpool would also take a draw.

    But if Man City will win this game they will be on the driving seat, because they know how to win the Premier League.

  5. Sixteen years and counting

    Liverpool v Man City (16:30 GMT)


    Manchester City's only league victory at Anfield in the past 38 years came in May 2003 when they recorded a 2-1 victory.

  6. Guardiola unconcerned about Anfield record

    Liverpool v Man City (16:30 GMT)


    Pep Guardiola is not concerned about Manchester City's poor Anfield record as they look to move closer to Premier League leaders Liverpool on Sunday.

    A home win would put Liverpool - who were pipped to the title by Guardiola's side in May - nine points ahead of City, who have managed one league win at Anfield since 1981.

    "Regarding statistics, I don't believe much in that kind of thing," he said. "Statistics are OK but I'm thinking of what we have to do to beat them."

  7. Follow on 5 live and online

    Liverpool v Man City (16:30 GMT)

    BBC Radio 5 live has you covered for today's games so if you are out and about enjoying the Autumnal sunshine, you can listen and read about all the action.

    First up on t'radio is Manchester United's game with Brighton while there will be updates from Wolves' game with Aston Villa.

  8. 'Today won't decide who is going to win the title'

    Liverpool v Man City (16:30 GMT)

    Chris Sutton

    Former Aston Villa striker on BBC Radio 5 Live

    It’s a sizeable game, there is a lot at stake but it is not going to decide who is going to win the title.

    But a win for Liverpool today would be massive and it could be a huge psychological blow for Manchester City.

  9. Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious Sunday


    I'm not a fan of using superlatives to big up Sunday's football, especially because they rarely often live up to being billed "Super Sunday" etc, but there's definitely some cracking games today.

    Before we even settle down for the main course of Liverpool versus Manchester City we have quite meaty starters in the shape of Manchester United against Brighton and the Midlands derby between Wolves and Aston Villa.

    If ever there was a day made for putting the feet up and settling down to do nothing other than following football then today is that day.

  10. Post update

    Liverpool v Man City (16:30 GMT)

    Phil McNulty

    BBC Sport chief football writer


    Liverpool's quest to end a 30-year wait to reclaim the domestic crown that once took almost permanent residency in Anfield's trophy room reaches a defining moment today.

    If Jürgen Klopp's side beat Manchester City it will give them a nine-point advantage over the reigning champions at the top of the table, and put them eight clear of both Leicester and Chelsea.

    That would effectively mean a Liverpool side that has lost only one of their past 50 league games would need to lose at least three of their next 26 to let City back in.

    It is not inconceivable as Liverpool had a 10-point lead over Pep Guardiola's side last season after they had played 20 games, although City had played a game fewer. This season, however, Liverpool seem propelled by an unstoppable momentum.

  11. A defining moment in the title race already?


    "Nothing is decided in November"

    "There's plenty of points to play for"

    "There will be lots more twists and turns to come"

    You can give all the reasons in the world to play down this fixture but there's no doubt about it, Liverpool versus Manchester City has all the makings of being a significant chapter in the Premier League title race.
