Premier League: Liverpool vs Manchester City

Liverpool vs Manchester City Betting Tip and Predictions. In the last match in Premier League this year, in Round 19, Liverpool host Manchester City at Anfield. Read below betting preview, betting tips, useful info and betting predictions for the match between Liverpool vs Manchester City.

Liverpool have continued with the good performance in Premier League after they smashed Stoke City 4-1 in the previous round. The difference between them and leader Chelsea is still 6 points. Chelsea will have easy job against Stoke at Stamford Bridge, so Liverpool have to go for a win against Manchester City in order to stay in the race for the title. This game will probably be the last for Sadio Mané for now, who will join Senegal on the African Cup of Nations, but the good news for Jürgen Klopp is that Philippe Coutinho has recovered from an injury and could play on this game from the beginning. Adam Lallana is playing very good in the recent performance after he scored 4 goals in the last 4 matches. Home side is still unbeaten this season upfront their supporters and they believe that can continue with the good performance and take another three points. They have the best attack in Premier League, so visitors could be in trouble if they don’t make some changes in their defence.

Manchester City have improved their performance in Premier League and won three games in a row. The match against Liverpool will be the real test for Pep Guardiola‘s men. If Manchester City lose this game they will be out from the title race, but there are many matches left until the end of the season, so it’s early to talk about it. They failed to beat Liverpool at Anfield in Premier League since 2003, so they will to do their best in order to win this game. Good news for visitors are that their top scorer Kun Aguero has served 4-match ban and will be in the starting lineup. Visitors could make one big step forward if they win this game, but it won’t be an easy job because home side have the same ambitions. Man City is playing much better away from home, but only against weaker opponents. Against stronger teams they didn’t make big success this season. Last season’s champions Leicester beat them 4-2, Spurs won 2-0, Manchester United eliminated them from the EFL Cup beating them 1-0, while FC Barcelona smashed them 4-0 in the group phase of the Champions League. If visitors want to win this match they will have to give 100% percent of good game.

Both sides are in the good form and both want to win this game. Liverpool play very good at home, but visitors have very strong team and they could be vary dangerous, especially after Aguero back in the squad. I expect very interesting match between Liverpool vs Manchester City. Draw is not the outcome that will satisfied both side, so I believe that we will watch an open game and many goals in both nets.
