Rickie Lambert

Liverpool and Manchester City have confirmed their starting XI for their pre-season clash in Yankee Stadium.

Liverpool starting XI: Jones; Kelly, Toure, Coates, Enrique; Gerrard, Henderson, Allen; Coutinho; Sturridge, Lambert

Manchester City starting XI: Caballero; Clichy, Kolarov, Boyata, Nastasic; Navas, Fernando, Zuculini, Milner; Jovetic, Dzeko

Title rivals Liverpool and Manchester City meet in America tonight for a game that will no doubt get fans raring to go ahead of the new Premier League season.

It may only be pre-season football, but some of the names on show will excite fans across the world, and both teams will look to gain any sort of psychological advantage with the season just over two weeks away.

Liverpool's pre-season has been somewhat indifferent so far, losing to Brondby and Roma but beating Preston and Olympiacos as Brendan Rodgers looks to forge on without Uruguayan striker Luis Suarez.

Meanwhile, City are coming off the back of a thumping 5-1 over Serie A side AC Milan, with Stevan Jovetic bagging a brace and Nigerian wonderkid Kelechi Iheanacho catching the eye with the final.

The game gets underway at midnight in the UK, and both teams will be hoping to give their bleary-eyed fans something to cheer tonight.
