A potentially season-defining game lies today at Anfield as Liverpool host Manchester City as the top two clash in yet another crucial match between Jurgen Klopp’s Reds and Pep Guardiola’s Citizens.

Liverpool lead the Premier League by a point from City, with Arsenal just a point further back as the trio seem set to battle it out for the league title over the remaining 11 games of the season.

A win here today for either side, after both enjoyed good wins in midweek in Europe, would enhance their prospects of winning the title massively. A draw, could well see Arsenal leapfrog the pair to take over at the top of the table.

Key Points for the game:

  1. Injury hit Liverpool come into this game with the best home record in the Premier League with 11 wins and 2 draws from their 13 home league games. They have also won all their last four at Anfield and no other Premier League team has scored more at and conceded fewer at home than Klopp’s team.
  2. Manchester City have taken 28 points from 39 available away from home, but all three losses they suffered this season have come on the road. That said, City are on an incredible run of 12 league games without defeat in the Premier League and 20 games unbeaten in all competitions.
  3. Both teams have scored in 67% of Liverpool’s games in the Premier League this season and in 63% of Manchester City’s. Both clubs also report the same figures when it comes to games with Over 2.5 goals scored in them.
  4. Both teams have scored in nine of the last 10 games between the two teams and in five of Manchester City’s last seven games, plus in eight of Liverpool’s last 11 matches.
  5. The teams drew 1-1 at the Etihad when they met earlier this season, Erling Haaland (27) giving Manchester City the lead before Trent Alexander-Arnold (80) equalised for Liverpool late in the game.
  6. Liverpool have lost just once at Anfield, in front of a crowd, in the Premier League since 2017. A loss to Leeds last season. Their other home defeats came when Anfield was closed to fans during the pandemic.

Liverpool v Manchester City Lineups: Last Starting 11

Our betting prediction for the game:

Generally speaking, Liverpool v Manchester City games tend to be high-scoring, dramatic and passionate affairs and Sunday’s game should not be any different. However picking a winner in this game, especially at Anfield can be tough. Liverpool’s injury hit side have defied the odds to land some fantastic wins of late, but City at home is a different level to any game they have faced. Yet City’s record at Anfield isn’t great and with a fervent crowd behind them, and a couple of key stars back, Liverpool cannot be underestimated.ย Our prediction for Liverpool vs. Man City is to play it safe and go for the Both Teams to Score and Over 2.5 goals bet.
