Man City v Liverpool Past Meetings

This is a fixture that Manchester City have historically struggled in and despite their changes in fortunes and ambitions over recent years, they still do not have a strong record against Liverpool.

The Citizens have won only four of the last 23 league meetings between the two – a run stretching back to April 2005.

Liverpool have won each of the past four clashes in the league, including a 1-0 victory on New Year’s Eve thanks to Giji Wijnaldum’s early strike.

However, City have won two of the last three clashes in Manchester – although the most recent was an embarrassing 4-1 loss – and did triumph in last season’s League Cup decider.


Man City v Liverpool Stats

Pep Guardiola’s side may be third in the Premier League table but have struggled to find their rhythm at home this season and six teams have collected more points at their own ground, with City winning only seven of their 13 Etihad league games to date, but have only lost once there in all competitions this season – a league defeat to Chelsea.

All five of Liverpool’s league defeats this season have come against teams in the bottom half of the table.


Man City v Liverpool Team News

Vincent Kompany is expected to be available for the hosts, but Gabriel Jesus and Ilkay Gundogan both remain unavailable.

Roberto Firmino (groin) is a doubt for Liverpool, while Daniel Sturridge (hip) and Jordan Henderson (bruised foot) are both expected to miss out. Long-term absentees for Jurgen Klopp include Adam Bogdan and Danny Ings.


This is a fixture which is notoriously tough to call and it’s no less so this time around – Manchester City have a superior side to Liverpool, have fewer absentees and are in better form, but the visitors have a good record in this fixture, have no European distractions (City play Monaco four days earlier) and thrive in games against top half teams.

Neither side will go into this as clear favourites and the likelihood of a draw, albeit an entertaining one, are relatively high.

Liverpool have struggled on the road this season but City will attack them which will suit both teams and odds of 139/50 for a draw are more than tempting.

Philippe Coutinho has scored in five of his seven appearances for the Reds against City (he didn’t feature in the Anfield match due to injury) and the odds of 13/4 reflect his recent patchy form, but don’t factor in that Liverpool’s gameplan and City’s porous defence means his chances of finding the net are significantly increased.
