Liverpool vs Manchester City Match Preview

With the Citizens maintaining a huge lead at the top and looking unstoppable with their unbeaten streak, it is all up to Liverpool to stop them. Super Sunday on January,14 will witness this clash at the Anfield Stadium, so check out our Liverpool vs Manchester City prediction and betting tips.
Liverpool had a great start to the calendar year, both on and off the pitch, starting with the signing of Virgil van Dijk. He wasted no time in stamping his mark by helping the Reds progress in the FA Cup, with his late winner seeing off Everton. The hosts are in the middle of a dream run, having stayed unbeaten in 17 games (W12, D5, L0) in all competitions. In the league too, they have not lost in their last 13 matches (W9, D4, L0). The season so far has been a mixed bag for Jurgen Klopp’s men who have enthralled with their attacking flair in the final third, but have also frustrated with their defensive failures. The Reds have scored the second-most goals in the league (50), but have also conceded 25, the highest in the top-five.
What can we say about Manchester City! They are nearly the Champions-elect for most of the analysts and considering their form, it is not an exaggeration. They lead the points tally by a whopping 15 points after 22 games (62pts, W20, D2, L0). Not just that, they are the top-scoring side of the league (64 goals, avg. of 2.91 per game) and have conceded the least number of goals (13 goals, avg. of 0.59 per game). Earlier in the season, they demolished the Reds 5-0 at the Etihad Stadium. The visitors are still unbeaten in the league and look confident ahead of this crucial Liverpool vs Manchester City fixture.
Liverpool vs Manchester City H2H
Liverpool have lost only once in their last seven matches against Manchester City (W2, D4, L1). City have not done the league double over the Reds in over 80 years and have a great chance to do that here!
