Some Liverpool fans fear Pep Guardiola's next move at Manchester City

Pep Guardiola the head coach

Liverpool are currently five points clear at the top of the Premier League table, with Manchester City's injury crisis worsening.

Some Liverpool fans fear that John Stones’s injury could actually benefit Manchester City.

Liverpool have built up a five point lead over City at this early stage of the campaign, and Pep Guardiola’s side look short of options at the back now.


With Aymeric Laporte and Stones out injured, City’s centre-back options are limited.

But Liverpool fans think that Guardiola could have a trick up his sleeve to benefit City.

Some Liverpool supporters predict that Kyle Walker could step into central defence, with Joao Cancelo coming in at right-back, while others think that Fernandinho may be utilised in defence. 

And there are many Reds followers who think that Stones being out will actually make City an even stronger force.

Even if City do improve, if Liverpool keep winning there will be nothing that Guardiola’s men can do to stop them.

The Reds have taken maximum points from their five Premier League games so far, with their next match coming against Chelsea.
