A crucial match for Liverpool after yet another surprising defeat at Anfield Wednesday night against Brighton. Losing this match would put them at least 10 points behind Man City.

iverpool have in the four seasons up to and including 2018/19 accumulated pre-tax profits of €208.3 million while Manchester City's gains stand at just €49.5 million.

The two clubs are remarkably similar when it comes to turnover, but Manchester City have the edge in terms of commercial income with revenue of €257.5 million to Liverpool's €213.3 million.

Player investment has seen Manchester City's amortisation rise to €143.6 million while Liverpool's expense is slightly lower at €126.8 million.
