Liverpool vs Man City Betting Tips - Attacks to shine in top of the table battle

Liverpool have the chance to extend their lead at the top of the English Premier League standings when they host title rivals Manchester City at Anfield. Neither side has been particularly convincing of late and with both teams looking shaky at the back in recent weeks, we can expect goals in this one.

Liverpool Form

Liverpool left it late before claiming a 2-1 victory at Aston Villa in their last Premier League outing. Having conceded early in the first half, they needed an 87th minute equaliser from Andrew Robertson before Sadio Mane struck the winner.

The Reds were the better side at Villa Park as they had more shots on target (6-2) and expected goals (2.39-0.74). Jurgen Klopp’s men remain unbeaten in the Premier League with 10 wins and one draw and head into Sunday’s clash off the back of a 2-1 victory over Belgian team Genk in the UEFA Champions League.

Liverpool have shown plenty of character lately, coming from behind to secure wins in their last two matches. Their recent resilience has been driven by Sadio Mane with the Senegal forward often dragging the team back from the brink of defeat.

Alex Oxlade Chamberlain appears to be returning to his best form having scored four goals in his last three starts. He could feature while Roberto Firmino and Sadio Mane should return to the team after starting on the bench in Belgium.

Man City Form

Manchester City also fought back from a goal down to see off Southampton in their previous Premier League fixture. Goals from Sergio Aguero and Kyle Walker earned the win for City who had four shots on target and 3.36 expected goals. 

The Citizens are six points off the pace on the table and cannot afford to fall further behind the Reds. Pep Guardiola’s men have claimed eight Premier League wins this season but were held 1-1 by Atalanta in the Champions League in midweek.

Man City News

City have problems at the back with Oleksandr Zinchenko and Aymeric Laporte both sidelined  while goalkeeper Ederson limped off in Italy. The Brazilian goalkeeper is a major doubt for Sunday’s clash alongside midfielder David Silva but Raheem Sterling and Sergio Aguero are set to start in attack having combined for 16 goals this season.

Liverpool vs Man City Head to Head

Liverpool have 79 wins and 42 draws while Manchester City have claimed 45 victories from 166 previous matches. There have been over 2.5 goals in six of the last eight fixtures between both teams with City earning a 2-1 victory at the Etihad in the last meeting.

There are numerous options in the first goalscorer market with Sadio Mane backed at 6.50 to score the first goal having found the net six times in his last 11 Premier League matches. Mohamed Salah (5.50), Sergio Aguero (5.50) and Raheem Sterling (7.50) could also be considered.

Liverpool vs Man City Match Up 

Liverpool often play through the wide areas with Trent Alexander-Arnold and Andrew Robertson creating the most chances. They will be confident of getting past the City fullbacks while Sadio Mane’s pace and power in attack should see him trouble City's backline.

Manchester City's attacking moves usually come through the midfield with Kevin De Bruyne often creating the chances. Raheem Sterling stretches defences with his pace while Sergio Aguero’s movement should cause problems for the Liverpool backline on Sunday.
