Man City vs Liverpool

THU 2ND JULY 2020 – KO 8:15pm


Man City vs

On Thursday night, the Premier League’s top two teams Manchester City and Liverpool meet at the Etihad Stadium. The game has lost some of its importance after the Reds were crowned champions last Thursday.

Manchester City

The Citizens suffered a late 2-1 defeat at Chelsea last time out to hand the visitors the league title. The defeat at Stamford Bridge means that Pep Guardiola’s team head into this clash 23 points behind the visitors with seven games remaining.

City’s problems have mostly come away from home of late though. The Citizens are unbeaten in their last seven home games in the Premier League, having recorded six wins in the process. Guardiola’s team has been highly potent in attack of late in the English top-flight, scoring at least two goals in their last seven home matches.


Jurgen Klopp’s team will be delighted to have ended their 30-year wait for an English top-flight title. However, the former Dortmund boss will be keen for his team to not lose focus and keep their positive momentum going ahead of next season.

The Reds recent Premier League record has not been the best, as they have won two, drawn one and lost one of their previous four games in the English top-flight. The visitors recent league games have been high-scoring, with over 2.5 goals scored in four of their previous five league matches.

Liverpool have failed to win in their last four away games in all competitions, including suffering three defeats. Klopp’s team has also failed to score in all four of their winless matches on their travels.

Team News

Manchester City look set to be without injured striker Sergio Aguero, while Fernandinho is suspended and Eric Garcia is a fitness doubt. Xherdan Shaqiri and James Milner look set to miss out through injury, while Joel Matip is also an injury doubt.

Match Prediction

The fact that Liverpool have already sealed the title may make this game a slight non-event. With that in mind, we are backing the draw.

Odds 14/5
