Liverpool vs. Manchester City ‘Advantage Liverpool? Perhaps’ – Anfield set for biggest game of the season so far

Published

on

4:30pm, Sunday 10th November. All eyes will be on Anfield as the Premier League leaders host reigning champions Manchester City in what will be the biggest and most important game of the 2019/20 season so far.

Two of the best teams English football has ever seen, managed by two of the best managers in world football right now. Liverpool vs. City is the modern day United vs. Arsenal. The rivalry is intense. They’re the best in the league by a country mile. But only one can win the title.

Having dropped just two points all season and unbeaten in the league Liverpool could open up a 9 point lead over rivals City with a win at Anfield. Klopp’s side showed great character and perhaps the hallmark of champions by coming from a goal down at Aston Villa to win 2-1 last weekend.

Their performance was well below par, but being able to grind out a result without playing well is the sign of a good team. Just look at Manchester United in the Fergie years, they did the same time and time again scoring late equalisers and winners just like Sadio Mane did last weekend at Villa Park.

The Senegal international is 11/2 to open the scoring against Man City.

A win for the Citizens would be their first at Anfield since 2003 and it would mean the title race is well and truly on.

Like Liverpool, Pep’s side had to come from a goal down to claim all three points last weekend. Sergio Aguero was on hand to level the scores, his 9th league goal of the season, before Kyle Walker bagged the winner late on much to the relief of Pep and the City faithful.

With three quarters of the season left to play a draw wouldn’t be the worst result in the world for City, especially when you consider the number of players they have missing through injury. Ederson, Laporte, Sane, Silva and Rodri are all sidelined, which means John Stones and Nicolas Otamendi are expected to start at the back with Claudio Bravo in goal.

Advantage Liverpool? Perhaps. But the Reds have been sloppy in defence of late too, failing to keep a clean sheet in each of their last 8 games in all competitions.

It’s 10/3 for BTTS and Liverpool to win and 7/2 for BTTS and Man City to win.

Last season the same fixture ended 0-0 and it’s 14/1 for a repeat on Sunday. But it would be a huge surprise if neither side are on the scoresheet. Both Liverpool and City have been ruthless going forward averaging well over 2.5 goals per game each. It’s 4/1 for over 4.5 goals at Anfield on Sunday.

Sergio Aguero will be looking to break a duck that has seen him never score at Anfield. The Argentine striker is 13/10 to score anytime.

After leaving Liverpool for Manchester City a few years ago, It would be fitting for Raheem Sterling to get on the scoresheet at Anfield.

Completely transformed under Pep, the winger has been in excellent form this season and is 19/10 to get on the score sheet.

This is a game that could have huge significance in the title race. It’s a game neither team will want to lose. Liverpool are slight favourites are 13/8, the draw is 5/2 and Manchester City are 7/4 to bag all three points.
