Liverpool vs Manchester City of the Premier League Match


Liverpool and Manchester City meet at Anfield on Sunday in a blockbuster clash that could go some way towards deciding the Premier League title (3.45pm, Sky Sports Main Event).

The Reds temporarily extended their lead over the Cityzens at the top of the table to four points following Darwin Nunez’s dramatic late winner against Nottingham Forest last weekend.

Pep Guardiola’s men duly responded with a 3-1 triumph over Manchester United at the Etihad Stadium, cutting the gap back to one point ahead of the decisive duel.

Liverpool vs Man City team news

While Liverpool welcomed back Salah having been boosted by the return of Darwin Nunez last weekend, the midweek game served up a blow. Ibrahima Konate was forced off in the Czech capital and Klopp has confirmed the defender’s fitness remains uncertain.

Trent Alexander-Arnold, Alisson Becker, Thiago Alcantara, Stefan Bajcetic, Ryan Gravenberch, Curtis Jones, Diogo Jota and Joel Matip are all injured.

Jack Grealish will miss out for City and is not expected back until after the international break later this month.

Jeremy Doku (muscle) and Matheus Nunes (finger) will both be assessed before the game.

Liverpool vs Man City prediction

Liverpool earned a big boost with the return of Darwin Nunez and Mohamed Salah. The former was in action last weekend at The City Ground while the latter made the squad in the mid-week’s UEFA Europa League game in Prague. Manchester City kept just two clean sheets in the last six outings across competitions.

We can hardly see them stopping Liverpool’s deadly attacking line on Sunday. The same works for Liverpool despite their run of three subsequent clean-sheet wins in all competitions. The Reds have been vulnerable at the back throughout the whole season.

With such an amazing attacking firepower on both ends of the pitch and a high-scoring tradition in recent H2H encounters, we can’t expect anything other than a goal fest on Sunday. The main pick is Over 3.5 goals FT pick at the 2.30 odds.

Despite some hiccups and big misses in recent games, Erling Haaland is still Premier League’s top scorer with 18 goals in 22 appearances this season. The Norwegian superstar has recently put five goals past Luton in the 6-2 FA Cup drubbing at Kenilworth Road. You will rarely get 2.10 odds offered for Haaland to score anytime in a game. We believe the price-tag is worth a shot.

Draw, 1-1.
