Manchester City is thirsty for the Champions League. The club has not yet won the Champions League in their history. When limited to England, however, Manchester City is incredibly powerful.
The most popular professional sports league in the world kicks off its 2019-20 season on Friday, as English Premier League runners-up Liverpool (2-13) take on newly-promoted Norwich City (25-1). A full slate of games follow on Saturday and Sunday. The defending champions, Manchester City (5-19), start their quest for a three-peat Saturday in East London versus West Ham United (14-1). Meanwhile, American fans can watch USMNT star Christian Pulisic with his new club, Chelsea (45-17), against traditional rival Manchester United (11-9) on Sunday.
- Perhaps the most thrilling title race in English football history comes to its exciting conclusion Sunday. Liverpool and Manchester City have matched each other, blow for blow, the entire season, with neither dropping a point since March 3. With 95 and 94 points, the runner-up will set the Premier League record for most points by a team that didn’t win the title.
