Paul Merson has given his prediction for the upcoming clash between Manchester City and Liverpool.
The Citizens are currently sitting in second place in the Premier League table, eight points behind the leaders Arsenal. The Reds, meanwhile, are in 6th place with 42 points.
The two sides are set to face each other in the domestic league on April 1, 2023. Ahead of the meeting, Merson shared his thoughts, backing Pep Guardiola's side to beat the opponents.
"I would be shocked if Erling Haaland isn't fit for this game - he pulled out of the international break. I don't know which Liverpool are going to turn up, and I'm backing Man City to win a massive three points this weekend," Merson said on Sportskeeda.
Paul Merson's prediction: Manchester City 2 - 0 Liverpool
