Liverpool v Manchester City Premier League Preview, 14th January 4.00pm
What a game of football this should be. Liverpool are going well again and they have remained unbeaten on home soil this season in the top flight. They will have revenge on their mind too having been hammered 5-0 at the Etihad by City earlier in the season. Manchester City are yet to taste domestic defeat this season, but they could come under pressure in this one. Man City are only 6/5 to win this, with Liverpool at 2/1 and the draw at 13/5* (Betting Odds taken from January 11th, 2018 at 3.54 am)
Liverpool News and Form
The Reds have stayed undefeated in their last thirteen league games now and you sort of get the feeling that if they don’t turn up and be the ones to break Man City this season, then the rest of the Premier League may as well just pack up and go home. Liverpool are unbeaten at Anfield all season and they have won their last two there, seeing off Swansea and then Leicester. They have scored at least two goals in each of their last five games home and away and certainly carry the attacking threat to get at City. The Reds average just under two goals per game at home and they have conceded just the four goals at Anfield all season which is fantastic. Still, you would probably be looking at both teams to score at Bet365 for the game at 8/15 odds* (Betting Odds taken from January 11th, 2018 at 9.12 pm). Liverpool have lost Philippe Coutinho to Barcelona so how will they galvanise themselves after that because that is a big loss? But they are stacked with enough creative players to hold down the fort you would imagine. Mo Salah has seventeen league goals for the season and is in at 6/4 in the anytime goalscorer market* (Betting Odds taken from January 11th, 2018 at 9.12 pm). Their home form does tick all the boxes to suggest that they can get close to three points.
Manchester City News and Form
The Citizens had an extra game in midweek as well to get through, as they face Bristol City in the EFL Cup semi-final first leg which they won 2-1. City are still unbeaten all season and after their record-breaking winning streak was snapped in a 0-0 draw at Crystal Palace, they returned to winning ways last weekend with a 3-1 home victory over Watford. City are W10 D1 on the road this season and they haven’t been without their tight squeezes away from the Etihad it has to be said. They have won at Bournemouth, West Brom, Huddersfield and Newcastle all by just a one-goal margin. Six of their ten away victories this season have been by a one-goal margin only. Backing the Citizens to win by a one-goal margin is 10/3 odds at Paddy Power* (Betting Odds taken from January 11th, 2018 at 9.17 pm). City have averaged over two goals per game on their travels this season and they will of course get their chances to shine and push for three points. They have taken a clean sheet in 64% of their away games this season with just the five away goals conceded. But this should be a high scoring game again between the two of them and a really big test of Manchester City’s character.
Liverpool v Manchester City Head to Head
Despite losing 5-0 at the Etihad this season, Liverpool did take a win in this corresponding league fixture last season and they are actually on a four-match winning streak at Anfield against the Citizens. Liverpool have stood up pretty well to City in recent meetings and they are W4 D1 L1 in their last six Premier League games home and away against the Citizens. In total Liverpool will be defending a sixteen match unbeaten streak of home form against City in all competitions.
Who will win – Liverpool v Manchester City Predictions
City’s unbeaten form has to come to an end and some point and Liverpool could be the ones to do it. The Reds have the pace up front to expose the Citizens at the back and City have had to squeeze out some narrow away wins this season. Back the Reds to get themselves a huge three points.
