BETTING & MATCH PREDICTION

Liverpool vs

On Sunday afternoon, Liverpool host reigning Premier League champions Manchester City at Anfield in what could potentially be a crucial early game in the English top-flight title race.

LIVERPOOL

Jurgen Klopp’s team currently sit top of the table after mounting a six-game match unbeaten run at the beginning of the new top-flight campaign. Last time out, the Reds drew 3-3 at top-flight new boys Brentford. The draw means that the Merseysider’s are unbeaten in the Premier League in 16 games.

Liverpool have certainly been potent in front of goal in the top-flight this season, as they have scored at least two goals in five of their last six games in the Premier League this season.

After a short wobble at home at the beginning of the year, Liverpool have returned to being hard to beat at Anfield. The Reds are currently unbeaten in seven league games on home soil.

MANCHESTER CITY

The Citizens sent out a title warning last weekend, as Pep Guardiola’s team recorded a 1-0 win at European champions Chelsea. The win means that City are now unbeaten in five Premier League outings, having recorded four wins in the process.

The key to City’s recent good form has been their watertight defence, as the visitors have now kept five straight clean sheets in the English top-flight.

Manchester City have a good recent away record in the Premier League, winning 15 of their previous 17 matches on their travels.

Team News

Liverpool will be without injured midfield pair Thiago and Harvey Elliott.

Meanwhile, City will be without the suspended Benjamin Mendy, while midfielder Ilkay Gundogan looks set to miss out through injury. Versatile Oleksandr Zinchenko is also an injury doubt.

Match Prediction

This game is a massive clash in the English top-flight. It’s tough to call and we believe this game will finish all square. 

Odds 12/5
