The first of those games just so happens to be against the team they have dethroned, and Man City will be keen to prove a point against the runaway league leaders.
Here, Sports Mole looks at how the now-former champions could line up at the Etihad.
Pep Guardiola has suggested that he will prioritise the cup competitions for the remainder of this season - and rightly so with a potential treble still up for grabs - but he certainly will not want to roll over against the team that has just usurped his as kings of England.
Guardiola's tendency to rotate makes every player that started on Sunday a candidate to sit out on Thursday, but those three are arguably City's most important available players at the moment and will be expected to start again for Liverpool's visit.
Gabriel Jesus will also hope to lead the line again in the absence of the injured Sergio Aguero, although Guardiola played Bernardo Silva as a false nine against Chelsea and could opt for a similar tactic this time around.
Fernandinho is still suspended following his red card from that Chelsea game, leaving Guardiola with a choice between John Stones, Nicolas Otamendi, Eric Garcia and Taylor Harwood-Bellis at centre-back alongside Laporte.
Stones has not played since lockdown and has not been trusted at the best of times either, while Garcia remains a doubt following his heavy collision with Ederson in the first game back, meaning that Otamendi is favourite to start at the back.
