The first leg will be played at the Anfield Stadium on Wednesday, April 4, so check out our Liverpool vs Manchester City prediction and betting tips.
Liverpool under Jurgen Klopp are a treat to watch. With one of the best attacking trident in Mohamed Salah, Firminho, and Sadio Mane at his disposal, Klopp has made the Reds one of the toughest to face in the entire Premier League. Having already defeated Manchester City in the league before, the hosts will be confident of a positive result in this Liverpool vs Manchester City fixture. The visitors start as heavy favourites, but the hosts are not far behind and have high hopes on their attacking unit. They have scored 28 goals in their last ten home games and have netted four against City earlier at Anfield. One of the hottest strikers in European football right now is Salah, who has already netted a massive 35 goals for the Reds and 20 of those have come at home. Any little hopes they may have of progression depend on how well they perform in this home fixture.
Manchester City have had only one loss in the entire Premier League season so far, and that came at Anfield in a 4-3 thriller. Pep Guardiola is well aware of the attacking instincts of his contemporary adversary Klopp and will be eager to avoid defeat in this Liverpool vs Manchester City. Having said that, do not expect City to sit back and park the bus – far from that. The visitors have scored 24 goals in their last ten away games, winning seven of those and will once again be ready with the attack! With Sergio Aguero on the brink of a milestone 200 goals for City, there will be additional incentive for the side to perform.

Both sides have two of the best attacking units in England, if not Europe, and that means we can expect goals from both sides. That can be a Liverpool vs Manchester City prediction, but we are also banking on the game to be a high-scoring game. Over 2.5 goals seem to be a good Liverpool vs Manchester City betting tip when it comes to the goals scored.
