Liverpool to face Man City at Wimbledon, The Open and SummerSlam ​

Every football trophy's going to one or the other...

Comments

Liverpool and Man City are set to continue their intense rivalry by facing each other at Wimbledon, the World Snooker Championship, the Open and SummerSlam.

Despite the possibility they could play each other four times in 12 days as we approach the business end of the football season, the Premier League duo will also compete at snooker, tennis golf and professional wrestling.

First up, James Milner and John Stones will play 35-frames of snooker over the course of two days at the Crucible Theatre in Sheffield next month.

‘If I had to pick a player I’d base myself on, I’d say it was Steve Davis’, Milner told Paddy Power News.

‘Steady, consistent and displaying all the emotion of a Terminator on acetaminophen’, added the 36-year-old.

Next off, Mo Salah and Sadio Mane are to face Kevin De Bruyne and Raheem Sterling in a doubles game of tennis at The Championships in Wimbledon come June.

‘Tennis is the perfect game for Sadio and I, or should I say, me and Sadio’ Salah told Paddy Power News.

‘We are in the same team but we never have to pass the ball to each other’, grinned the 29-year-old Egyptian forward.

Both sides will then turn their attention to golf’s oldest tournament, The Open, with City goalkeeper Ederson teeing off against his opposite number and compatriot Alisson.

Ederson was spotted practising his drive at the prestigious Prestwick Golf Club in Scotland whilst wearing two pairs of trousers.

When quizzed on why he was wearing two pairs on the course, the 28-year-old replied:

‘In case I get a hole-in-one’.

Meanwhile, in what is perhaps the most hotly anticipated clash of all, Jurgen Klopp will square off against managerial counterpart Pep Guardiola in a tables, ladders and chairs match at WWE’s summer showpiece.

Sporting a powder blue one-slung strap leotard, an oiled-up Pep Guardiola had this to say during a pre-recorded promo for the event.

‘Whatcha gonna do Jurgen, when these 18-inch threadsnakes and all the little Man City maniacs run wild on you, brother?’.

In response, a robed Klopp said: ‘I’m a victory bus riding, point stealing, transfer wheeling-dealing son of a gun. BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOM’.

WWE CEO Vince McMahon has confirmed that Wythenshawe-based Premier League referee Anthony Taylor will officiate the bout.
