Manchester City vs. Liverpool Betting Preview
Man City is frantically chasing down leaders Arsenal. The Premier League champions sit second at present, eight points behind the Gunners, who have played a game more. Overall, Guardiola’s men have won 19, drawn four and lost four of their 27 league matches.
Man City is on fire right now, winning six league and cup fixtures in a row. Before the international break, the Citizens scored a staggering 13 goals in just two matches. They thumped RB Leipzig 7-0 in the UEFA Champions League before hammering Vincent Kompany’s Burnley 6-0 in the FA Cup.
Man City has been imperious at home this season, with just Brentford winning on their patch. Since a 1-1 draw with Everton in a Premier League match on New Year’s Eve, the Manchester giants have won eight consecutive home games, scoring 30 goals and conceding just three in the process.
As Man City look to close the gap on Arsenal before their game with Leeds United shortly after, Guardiola’s superstars will be looking for no less than three points against Liverpool. Below you will find the latest Manchester City vs Liverpool odds and top tips.
Liverpool had a remarkable season last year. They pushed Man City all the way in the Premier League title race, missing out on the final day. They were also runners-up in the Champions League and won the EFL Cup and FA Cup. However, things have been far different this time around.
Liverpool is out of all cup competitions and languish in sixth spot in the Premier League after a pretty miserable campaign by their high standards. The Reds have already suffered eight league defeats, six more than the entirety of last term.
They have improved in the Premier League lately, winning four of the last six. Klopp’s boys won four and drew one of five, beating Everton, Newcastle United, Wolverhampton Wanderers, and Manchester United.
However, they were brought back down to earth with a bump in the last one, losing 1-0 at relegation-threatened Bournemouth.
Liverpool will be desperate to get back on track after the poor defeat at the Vitality Stadium, but this is one of the toughest challenges of their season. Still, can Klopp’s men cause an upset and return to Anfield with a positive result in the bag?
Manchester City vs. Liverpool Betting Picks
Liverpool won the reverse meeting at Anfield and beat Man City in the FA Community Shield this term, but the Citizens edged a five-goal thriller against Liverpool when they met at the Etihad in the cup in December.
This promises to be another entertaining fixture between two of England’s elite clubs.
- Pick 1: we like the look of the Man City win and both teams to score at +200.
- Pick 2: Also, back the Man City victory and over 3.5 goals at +250.
