    MAN CITY vs LIVERPOOL: Today’s Winner Will Most Likely Win The League.

    Manchester City’s home date with Liverpool will most likely almost decide the season, with the last two English champions in for another projecteion of leading aonther title charge.

    The two teams haven’t lost a lot of games over the last few years so they know that the importance of the three points in this one is massive.

    It’s going to be very competitive between City and for Liverpool. It will look as though everything up to now has only been a warm-up of sorts for this game. This might most likely be a free scoring game as both sides are yet to fix their defensive worries, contrary to extremely lethal attacking prowess.

    The 2020-21 EPL season has so far become so unpredictable, an implication that this is not quite the top-two battle we have become accustomed to seeing between these two sides in recent years, but they remain the favourites for the Premier League title and, even at this stage of the campaign, today’s match could prove to be important in the race.

    If Liverpool wins, they will go eight points clear of the team they usurped as champions last season – a significant gap to make up on a team as consistent as the Reds even with a large portion of the campaign still to play.

    For Man City however, a home win would make it advantageous, as they would move to within only two points of Jurgen Klopps’s side with a game in hand, it would turn out an encouraging and motivating element for the Cityzens considering they have suffered such an uncharacteristically inconsistent start to the season.

    Liverpool, who brought their 30-year wait for top-flight glory to a close in 2019-20, have made their way back to the top.

    Jurgen Klopp’s side, who have not been at their consistent best this season, but will still have to prove a point against their new arch rivals in City.

    City, who have also struggled for consistency out of the blocks, sit five points off the pace in 10th – although they do have a game in hand.

    City go into it after beating Liverpool 4-0 last year but they’ll know that wasn’t the typical Liverpool side, they’d already wrapped up the league by then.

    Both sides face some important selection decisions heading into a crunch clash, with untimely injuries working against them.

    Dropped points at Leeds United and West Ham United, as well as their chastening 5-2 home defeat to Leicester City, stand out as poor results, but Liverpool have not been immune to such setbacks either – notably their 7-2 defeat to Aston Villa.

    Man City are unbeaten in eight games across all competitions and have won their last three without conceding, most recently cruising past Olympiacos in the Champions League on Tuesday night.

    It is the first time since September of last year that Man City have kept three consecutive clean sheets, while since their 5-2 defeat to Leicester they have only conceded three times in their eight outings.

    Former Chief Justices Katureebe, Odoki Meet Dollo, Other Supreme Court Justices  Over Justice Kisakye’s Confiscated File…

    Justice Kisakye's misunderstanding with the Chief Justice Owiny-Dollo came in light during Kyagulanyi's presidential petition withdrawal against Museveni's reelection

    Sources at the Kololo based Supreme Court have revealed  that two former Chief Justices have started mediating between eight Justices of the Supreme Court led by Chief Justice Alfonse Chigamoy Owiny-Dollo and Justice Dr Esther Mayambala Kisakye.

    Our sources stated that last month, Justice Bart Magunda Katureebe, the immediate former Chief Justice separately met Chief Justice Dollo at his chambers at the Supreme Court and they held a secret meeting which took almost three hours. Our sources intimated to us that two weeks later, another former Chief Justice, Benjamin Odoki also met Justice Dollo, where after the two former Chief Justices met the eight Justices of the Supreme Court including Justice Robby Opio Aweri, Justice Mike Chibitta, Justice Stella Arach Amoko, Justice Faith Mwondah, Justice Ezekiel Muhanguzi, Justice Percy Night Tuhaise, Justice Paul Mugamba, and the issue at hand was the misunderstanding between them and fellow Justice Kisakye.

    It is not yet established whether the former Chief Justices also met Justice Kisakye. The misunderstanding came in light during the withdrawing of the presidential petition filed by National Unity Platform (NUP)’s former presidential candidate Robert Kyagulanyi Ssentamu aka Bobi Wine challenging president Yoweri Museveni’s victory.

    Justice Kisakye accused Justice Dollo of confiscating her file containing her dissenting judgement after refusing him to vet her ruling. Judiciary’s Senior Communications officer Ssalongo Solomon Muyita rubbished Kisakye’s accusation stating that the problem was with her because she refused other justices on the penal from going through her ruling as the practice is, and or requires.

    The National Resistance Movement (NRM) party leadership has warned the selected party members and the new elected Members of Parliament to avoid involving themselves in acts of indiscipline including having sex and getting drunk on alcohol during the ongoing party retreat at Kyankwanzi National training Institute.

    Speaking to the Grapevine, Emmanuel Lumala Dombo, the NRM’s Director for Communication and Public Relations revealed that they have already started investigating the indiscipline exhibited by their members during their trip to Kyankwanzi on Thursday evening where party members got drunk and started abusing each other on the bus. Dombo described the incident as “absurd” and revealed that investigations are on into the matter, warning that culprits will be punished.

    Sources in Kyankwanzi intimated to this website that there is a candidate vying for the office of the deputy speaker who bought expensive alcohol and wine, on it branded with her pictures asking them to vote for her.

    Dombo also said that all members who are going to attend the meeting will not be allowed to access their mobile phones until evening.

    He added that other members who are pregnant will not be allowed for exercising after classes and breast feeding mothers were not welcome because of the highly physical demands of the retreat.

    There have always been ugly reports from the previous retreats at Kyankwanzi where reports of alcoholism, explicit sex and NRM big wigs fighting for beds.
