Betting tips Liverpool vs. Manchester City

A must win game for Man City at Liverpool

Manchester City head to Anfield on Sunday knowing they must realistically win in order to close the gap between themselves and the Reds. Can Pep’s side make the title race interesting? Have a read of our preview here:

Character, records and a date with destiny

Liverpool fans will be trying so hard not to get carried away after the wonderful start to the season. Understandably so considering they have not won the English top-flight since it was rebranded as the Premier League.

However, following the win over Villa last weekend in which they bagged two late goals to grab victory from the jaws of defeat, it is looking very good for the Reds.

Liverpool have earned 31 points from their 11 Premier League games this season; in English top-flight history, only Tottenham in 1960-61 (33, adjusted to three points for a win) have had more at this stage of a campaign.

This could be their year and it would be deservingly so given the style of football they have been playing this season. Coming back when staring defeat in the face shows just how much character and belief they have in the side this season. A couple of years ago the Reds would have lost that game at Villa Park but under Klopp they are relentless.

Liverpool are unbeaten in seven Premier League games in which they have conceded the first goal, winning six of those (D1); they have won more points from losing positions (10) than any other side in the top-flight this season.

Mane's late header was yet another example of why Liverpool have been so, so strong this season. They know that avoiding defeat against City on Sunday will put them right in the driving seat.

Must win game for City

Manchester City have missed some key defenders this season and so it is hardly surprising that they have struggled to maintain the high standards they set last season. That said, they are still within touching distance of unbeaten Liverpool and know a win at Anfield will close the gap to just three points.

They have scored 34 times in 11 games this season – nine more than Liverpool and more than double Manchester United’s total so far in 2019-20. Keeping them out when they have to win could be a tough one for Klopp’s side on Sunday.

Liverpool vs Man City betting tip

Manchester City know full well they have to win this one in order to close the gap at the top of the table so will probably be quite open at the back. With Liverpool always dangerous and City needing victory, backing both teams to score at odds of 6/11 seems a sensible option here.
