Liverpool v Man. City Past Meetings

The last time these sides met back in early September, Liverpool got absolutely destroyed 5-0 by Pep Guardiola’s side.

Liverpool were trailing to Sergio Aguero’s finish when Sadio Mane was sent off eight before half-time for a high challenge on Ederson.

City then took complete control of the game, adding a second before the break through Gabriel Jesus’s header. A Sane brace, and another Jesus goal finished the five-goal rout.

Liverpool v Man. City Team News

The home side should be welcoming back top scorer Mo Salah after the Egyptian missed out on their FA Cup clash with Everton. Alberto Moreno, Daniel Sturridge and Jordan Henderson are also returning to fitness and could be in contention for a place in the squad.

Pep Guardiola has no new injury concerns going into the massive clash with the Reds.

Liverpool v Man. City Bets

League leaders Manchester City won’t go unbeaten throughout the entire season, says manager Pep Guardiola, despite his side playing phenomenal football and certainly looking invincible. Indeed, they were lucky not to lose last time out against Crystal Palace, but Ederson’s late penalty save extended their unbeaten run and proved that the football gods are certainly looking out for them.

If there’s one side that would feel they could get the better of City, then it’s Liverpool. The Reds are on an incredible home unbeaten run against Sunday’s rivals in the league, winning this fixture at Anfield in each of the past four seasons. They haven’t even conceded at home against City in the previous two years.

City will still go into the game as favourites; their ability to find another gear against the likes of Tottenham, Manchester United, Arsenal and Chelsea (all City victims this year) has set them apart from their challengers. Indeed, City have looked more assured against the top sides than against the rest. It’s something which we’ve come to expect from Liverpool in recent years, although this season’s loss to Spurs, and draws with the Gunners, United and the Blues suggest that that might be changing.

Much will be made of Coutinho’s exit pre-match, but the Reds having Mo Salah back is a massive boost. His presence, along with the likes of Mane and Firmino could see City initially sit back more than when they’ve played the other top teams. That could mean a cautious first half, followed by an explosive second part. A draw could be on the cards therefore, with tempting odds at 14/5 with MarathonBet. With each side’s inherent attacking style, goals could be on the cards. Back a draw and both teams to score: yes at 3/1 with William Hill.
