Liverpool: Alisson, Alexander-Arnold, Robertson, Van Dijk, Gomez, Fabinho, Henderson, Wijnaldum, Mane, Salah, Firmino
An early line in the sand drawn for next season?
Make no mistake, this is no end-of-season game with nothing at stake.
Both line-ups reveal the manager's intentions with strong starting XIs as expected.
City still need perhaps two more wins to secure second spot and Champions League qualification while Liverpool will be keen to break more records in the seven matches that remain (most if those our records!).
Though City will provide a guard of honour for Liverpool, it could serve to fire the hosts up even more.
This City squad are used to being called champions and will be gunning to win the title back next season.
We may see an early indication of what is to come in 2020/21 this evening, but it is likely we will see the two best teams in the country going for victory and, perhaps, occasionally throwing caution to the wind.
It should be a fascinating contest.
City: Fernandinho serves the final match of his two-game ban this evening.
Sergio Aguero is out after knee surgery.
Liverpool: Joel Matip is injured along with Xherdan Shaqiri while James Milner passed a late fitness test and is on the bench.
