Liverpool vs. Manchester City Preview & Tips

Posted on by editor

Manchester City faces one of the toughest tests of this season when it travels to Anfield this weekend to take on a resurgent Liverpool, who come into the match fresh off an away victory against Chelsea. A win for City in this match would put them well on their way to the title, while a loss would close the gap at the top of the leaderboard.

Liverpool vs. Manchester City Trends Analysis

Liverpool has won four of its last ten fixtures against Man City, while City has taken a single win. Five of the remaining matches ended with level scores.

Manchester City has not beaten Liverpool at Anfield since 2003, and the club’s last visit to Anfield produced a 3-0 win to the home team.

Manchester’s flawless record over recent months came to an end in the Champions League this week as they lost 2-1 to Naples. This result was City’s first loss in ten matches. However the club, remains unbeaten in the Premiership this season.

Man City has scored 13 goals in its last five matches. Patchier defence caught up with them on Tuesday, with 6 goals conceded in the past five games. And City now knows it will need to shore up its defence if it is to win tighter games.

Liverpool comes into this match with three wins and two draws from its last five matches. The club has been in solid form over the last couple of months, with just one loss from its last ten matches.

Liverpool is doing well courtesy of disciplined defence, which has conceded just 3 goals in fine games. This has allowed the strikers to keep the club ahead with just 7 goals in the same period of time.

Liverpool vs. Manchester City Betting Tips

This match could go either way, with Liverpool in the form needed to beat City, while Manchester City has no fear of tough away games, as its thrashing of Man United at Old Trafford demonstrated.

Two factors may push this match in Liverpool’s favour – the fact that they’re playing in their fortress, where they are unbeaten this season, and the fact that Man City’s confidence will have taken a knock after its loss to Naples on Tuesday.

A draw is a likely outcome given the head to head stats between these sides, and the balanced nature of the ecounter, but we feel Liverpool has a slight edge in this one.

Our Liverpool vs Manchester City betting tip is to cast your lot in the Over/Under goals market. Liverpool’s defence has the ability to contain Man City’s strikers, but won’t put a high score past the visitors. We’re therefore going to back under 2.75 goals being scored in this fixture.
