Two of the finest football managers in world football, Pep Guardiola and Jurgen Klopp, are all set to pit their wits against each other as Manchester City host Liverpool in a crucial Premier League tie at the Etihad Stadium on April 10.

Manchester City are currently leading the table but are just one point above second-placed Liverpool. With such high stakes on offer, both Guardiola and Klopp know that they can’t afford any slip-up. Safe to say, Sunday’s clash could well be a title decider.

Guardiola and Klopp have been dominating the Premier League ever since they came to England. Guardiola joined City in 2016 while Klopp came to Liverpool a season earlier. Except for the 2016-17 season, when Antonio Conte’s Chelsea won the title, the league has been pretty much dominated by the Cityzens and the Reds.
