Liverpool visit Manchester City tonight in the Premier League as the new champions test themselves against the team they dethroned.
City’s defeat by Chelsea last week confirmed Liverpool’s first top-flight title for 30 years, and Jurgen Klopp’s side now have their sights set on breaking City’s record of 100 points in a Premier League season.
Pep Guardiola will have other ideas, however, and his City side can make a big statement with a victory here ahead of next season’s battle for the title. Follow all the action live:
Sharing the full story, not just the headlines
Jurgen Klopp speaks! “We have to do what we do. We didn’t celebrate for a week or whatever. We had our night. Then we refocus on the Premier League. City, wow, a proper football team, obviously. I don’t think City can play another way, they will play a high level. I expect a very intense game.”
Pep Guardiola speaks! “Life changes week by week. We want to do a good performance against this team, but next season will be different. Bothe teams want to play, to attack. I think it will be a nice game.”

The match will begin at 8.15pm on Thursday 2 July at the Etihad Stadium.
