Man City v Liverpool Team News

The only injury concern for Pep Guardiola’s City is midfielder Ilkay Gundogan, whilst Kyle Walker returns from a one-match ban.

Philippe Coutinho could feature for Liverpool for the first time this season having turned out for Brazil, whilst Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain is available for his new side. Jurgen Klopp could stick with the same XI that thrashed Arsenal last time out.

Reason for Man City v Liverpool Bets

With the international break done and dusted, the Premier League returns with an absolute cracker. Two of the league’s most exciting attacks will try to outdo each other, knowing that a win puts them top of the table – at least until the conclusion of the afternoon’s games.

Seven points each, both sides have already had their moments. City struggled to get past Everton at home, despite dominating possession, whilst Liverpool conceded a late equaliser to Watford on the opening weekend. Nevertheless, they’ve also shown great potential for the season ahead.

Liverpool’s destruction of the Gunners highlighted the Reds’ attacking prowess – and that was without Coutinho – whilst City’s squad is brimming with creativity, pace and power.

It all points to an exciting, end-to-end match, with both sides looking to start quickly and get the upper hand. But then there’s the issue of who to back for the points – if anyone. In these sort of heavyweight matches which involve Liverpool, it’s hard to look past the Reds. They have an unrivalled ability to up their game for the big occasions.

Nevertheless, their defensive frailties are going to be well up against it against City, so we could be in for an uncommon draw between these two. Back it to happen at 3/1 with Stan James.
