Liverpool vs Man City | Latest Team News | Line-Up’s | Predicted Score | Betting
Liverpool take on Manchester City at Anfield on Sunday afternoon. Here is a preview with the latest team news, line-ups and prediction
Liverpool will be desperate to end Manchester City’s unbeaten run and tighten their grip in the top four when the two clubs meet at Anfield on Sunday afternoon.
The Reds will be playing their first match since losing Philippe Coutinho to Barcelona but Jurgen Klopp insists they still have enough firepower to cope without the Brazilian international during the second half of the season. Liverpool booked their place in the fourth round of the FA Cup with a 2-1 victory over Everton last time out but they will be solely focussed on league matters tomorrow afternoon.
Klopp’s side sit fourth in the table but with Tottenham and Arsenal breathing down their necks they will want to cement their position with a win tomorrow while all three points would also see the Reds close-in on second-placed Man Utd. However, Liverpool will face a formidable City side that have beaten all before them so far this campaign with Pep Guardiola’s side unbeaten and 15 points clear at the top of the table.
City are the 13/10 favourites to win this game with the bookmakers but those using a SportingBet promotional code 2018 will be able to enjoy greater odds so it makes sense to take a look before placing your bet. I think both teams to score at odds of 7/15 is a banker while Liverpool to win 2-1 at 10/1 is also tempting. For those looking for even more value then add Roberto Firmino as first goalscorer in a 2-1 Liverpool win and you can get odds of 40/1.
Liverpool have been boosted by the return to fitness of Mohamed Salah after the attacker made a swift recovery from a groin injury that’s kept him out for the last two games.
However, the game will come too soon for Alberto Moreno, Daniel Sturridge and Jordan Henderson despite the trio returning to training at Melwood this week.
City will be without skipper Vincent Kopmany due to a calf strain while Gabriel Jesus and Benjamin Mendy are also still on the sidelines with long-term injuries.
Liverpool 2-1 Man City: The Reds are unbeaten in their last 14 games against City at Anfield and I think this is one particular fixture that could see City finally lose their unbeaten record. Liverpool have conceded just 4 goals at home this season and they have a great recent record against the ‘top 6’ so I fancy the Merseysiders to edge this one tomorrow.
