Liverpool vs Man City Betting Tips and Predictions: Liverpool
That Anfield record is incredibly impressive and very difficult to dismiss. Add to this Man City’s record there and it’s hard to see them getting the three points here. Liverpool haven’t lost a league match against City at Anfield since 2003, five years before the current owners took over.
Liverpool have been relentless this season and have found a resilience that hasn’t been at Anfield for some time. In their last three out of four matches they’ve come from behind to win all of them, the old Liverpool would have failed to win in all of those matches, but over the last two seasons manager Jurgen Klopp has instilled a belief in them that they can win every match.
Of late they’ve found their scoring boots again, they had been winning matches by just a single goal for much of the season so far, but in their last five matches they’ve scored 15 goals. In team news only Joel Matip will not play.
Liverpool vs Man City Betting Tips and Predictions: Man City
City of late have found form and have again began dismissing teams with ease and high scorelines, they’ve scored 14 goals in their last five matches, winning 4/5. Their away form in the league is great too, they’ve lost just two away matches in their last 15 on the road, winning all of the other 13.
Of course, Anfield isn’t a happy hunting ground for City as mentioned above, but the record between manager Pep Guardiola and Jurgen Klopp over their careers is 16 matches, seven wins apiece and two draws.
City have a few injury concerns coming into the clash, most notably goalkeeper Ederson who hobbled off during their midweek draw with Atalanta in the Champions League. At the time of writing it’s unclear whether he’ll start but the rumour mill is suggesting that he will. David Silva is out with a muscle injury, Rodri will also miss the match. The long term injured include Leroy Sane and Aymeric Laporte.
