This season also looks like a replica of the 2018/19 season, the Cityzens are ahead of the Reds with just one point having played the same number of games.

Manchester City’s quest for winning the title suffered a setback in their game against Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park where they were held to a goalless draw.
However, Manchester City have been perfect since that defeat against the Eagles, their recent victory was a 4-0 win over Leeds United. The win reduced the goal difference between both teams to one point.
