The English Premier League match of the weekend is without doubt Liverpool hosting Manchester City at Anfield on Sunday and we take a look at the game from a betting angle.
Liverpool v Manchester City – click here to bet
Liverpool are currently 4th on the table, a distant 18 points behind Manchester City. They beat Everton 2-1 at home in the FA Cup 3rd round on the weekend and they are undefeated in their last 13 EPL matches, winning their last 3. Liverpool are undefeated at home this season with 6 victories and 5 draws, most recently beating Leicester 2-1.
Manchester City have only dropped 4 points all season through 2 draws but they are coming off a hectic schedule having beaten Burnley 4-1 at home in the FA Cup on the weekend and Bristol City 2-1 at home in the Carabao Cup in midweek. City have won 10 and drawn 1 of their away matches this season but that draw did come in their last away game, a 0-0 result at Crystal Palace. City haven’t conceded a goal in their last 3 away matches and their 2 trips to top 6 sides this season resulted in a 2-1 win over Manchester United and a 1-0 win at Chelsea.
City hammered Liverpool 5-0 at home earlier this season and Liverpool won this fixture 1-0 last season.
Manchester City 12/10.
Suggested bet: Over 3.5 goals at 11/10.
This should be an exciting and explosive affair and I am expecting to see goals at both ends and a likely 4 or more in total.
