Mark Lawrenson has predicted Liverpool to earn a draw when they face Manchester City on Saturday afternoon.
The Reds travel to the Etihad Stadium for a Premier League clash and will be aiming to pick up three away points.
Jurgen Klopp’s side have made an impressive start to the new season with seven points from their opening three games and dismantled Arsenal 4-0 before the international break.
The Merseyside club will get a real test off the title credentials when they face Pep Guardiola’s side, who were the biggest spenders in the summer window.
Pundit Lawrenson has tipped a 1-1 scoreline between the two sides in the highly-anticipated clash, as cited by BBC Sport.
Philippe Coutinho will not be involved in the weekend clash, but Liverpool have coped well without him so far.
The likes of Sadio Mane, Roberto Firmino and Mohamed Salah have struck up a great attacking threat to make Klopp’s team one of the most exciting teams in the division.
They will be lining up against a Man City team that boast their own array of attacking talents, with the likes of Sergio Aguero, Gabriel Jesus, Bernando Silva, Kevin De Bruyne and Leroy Sane all options.
