Manchester City vs Liverpool Prediction and Betting Tips

Premier League – Manchester City vs Liverpool Prediction and Betting Tips. In the most interesting match this week in Premier League, Manchester City host Liverpool at Etihad. Read below betting preview, betting tips, useful info and betting predictions for the match between Manchester City vs Liverpool.

Manchester City stand at the 3rd position in Premier League with 10 points less than leader Chelsea, so the title race for them is obviously over, but they want to finish the season in the Top 3 and qualified in the Champions League directly. Meanwhile, Monaco eliminated Manchester City from Champions league beating them 3-1, so now home side can fully focus on Premier League. It questionable, are they ready to come back in the real rhythm after big disaster. The big game against Liverpool is very important for them, so they will be fully motivated to take all three points, but visitors have the same ambitions, so the match between Manchester City vs Liverpool could be more than interesting. Home side lost the last 4 league games against Jurgen Klopp‘s men, so they want to finally revenge them. The only shiny spot in Pep Guardiola‘s team is Sane, who has exploded this season, so along Aguero and Sterling, they could be very dangerous for visitors.

Liverpool have one point less than Manchester City and they want to make positive result and stay in the race for the 3rd position. They won the last two league games, both at home against Arsenal 3-1 and Burnley 2-1, but their away performance is not so good. Visitors won only 3 of their last 10 away games in all competitions, so it will be interesting how will they play against Man City. Interesting fact is that Liverpool play very good against stronger team and they didn’t lose against Top 9 teams in league. Bad news for visitors is that their striker Firmino is still injured, so he will probably miss this game, but there are still some chance for him to be in the first eleven. In the attack should start Coutinho, Mane and maybe Origi, so home side have to improve their performance in defence. Liverpool is in the better position, they won the last two games and they are all fresh for big derby, so they hope that can make positive result and take at least one point.

Team News

Home side miss Jesus and Gündogan. On the other side visitors will be without Henderson and Sturridge, while Firmino is doubtful.

Manchester City vs Liverpool Prediction

Home side want to make good performance after they failed to reach the next phase of Champions league, but visitors have very good team, so it won’t be easy job for them. I expect interesting and open match between Manchester City vs Liverpool and at least three goals.
