Liverpool vs Manchester City Premier League Betting TipPublished January 11, 2018
Manchester City to win and BTTS @ 5/4 with Betfair
When Manchester City travel to Liverpool on Sunday afternoon, it will be a clash of the two most exciting teams to watch in the Premier League. The Reds must quickly bounce back from the sale of Philippe Coutinho, and there is no tougher way to start life without him, but they are more than capable of providing Pep Guardiola’s side with a scare.
In fact, they did that last year, beating them at Anfield; they do have a very good record at home in the ‘big games’, but this is a very different City side. English football has rarely seen dominance like it and, although they are yet to win anything, they are almost certain to this season. Jurgen Klopp saw how tough it was to play them back in September when they lost 5-0; Sadio Mane was controversially sent off.
City should have enough to win this one on Sunday.
Liverpool have been going strong in the Premier League, winning three of their last four games. They have also scored 16 goals in all competitions lately, and do have a decent record without Coutinho this season. Emphatic wins at home to Swansea and at Bournemouth show their attacking quality, which should still be formidable without the brilliant Brazilian. Liverpool are currently fourth in the Premier League and well in the race for a Champions League spot.
There isn’t much to say about Manchester City, who have a 15-point lead at the top of the Premier League and have won 20 of 22 games this season, drawing the other two and not suffering a domestic defeat since April.
Mohamed Salah could return after a spell out injured, while Liverpool’s own big January signing, Virgil van Dijk, will make his Premier League debut. Gabriel Jesus and Benjamin Mendy will be missing for City.
