Liverpool vs Manchester City Match Prediction

By Bharath Ramm R

Liverpool were able to snatch a valuable point against Chelsea after drawing 1-1 with a late goal. Eden Hazard was the difference between the two clubs for the majority of the game after coming up with the 25th-minute goal. Substitute Daniel Sturridge, who was coming back to Stamford Bridge, came up with an incredible long-range effort that equalised the scores in the 89th minute. Liverpool went on to lose 1-0 against Napoli in the Champions League. Manchester City capitalised on two grave errors from Brighton to get a 2-0 win at the Etihad Stadium. Sterling and Aguero were the factors behind this win. Pep Guardiola’s team came up with a late and crucial win over Hoffenheim.

Betting Tips and Predictions

City make the trip to Liverpool having suffered a big game against the rates. Liverpool have been able to claim three consecutive wins over Manchester City. Despite being regarded as one of the best managers in the world, Pep Guardiola has been able to get just one win in six matches against Liverpool and this solitary victory came at the Etihad Stadium. After three winless matches, Jurgen Klopp’s men will be desperate to bounce back and utilise their home form to greater effect. I would go with a win for Liverpool.

The game will be an immense entertainer with both clubs trying to pass their way and focus on an attractive style. However, there will be an intense pressing approach from both clubs as they try to recover the ball high up the field. Even then, this match should end up producing over 2.5 goals owing to the quality of the teams.

Liverpool Preview

Liverpool had gone seven matches with a consecutive wins and the team was expected to struggle once run came to an end. It is the story with almost any other team, and Liverpool are proving that they are no exception. The club made some decent transfer activity in the summer, but the usual names continue to dominate the headlines. The Reds have also struggled with a reduced contribution from Mohamed Salah in this early part of the campaign. There are signs of tiredness within the team cannot be dismissed and the recent set of results prove the same.

Liverpool Team News

Naby Keita (back) and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain (cruciate ligament) are unavailable for Jurgen Klopp.

Manchester City Preview

Manchester City quickly recovered from defeats so far this season and it continues to illustrate the strength within the team. Guardiola has made a couple of key alteration to the tactics that yielded a Premier League title this season, but majority of the club’s action revolves around using the width provided by Raheem Sterling and Leroy Sane. City have also been able to profit from Sergio Aguero’s recent run of form and the Argentine continues to perform exceptionally well.

Manchester City Team News

Claudio Bravo (Achilles tendon), Benjamin Mendy (foot), Kevin De Bruyne (knee), Eliaquim Mangala (knee), Philippe Sandler (meniscus), and Ilkay Gundogan (hamstring) are a doubt for the game or certainly ruled out of the game
