Man City v Liverpool Tipped To Be An Entertaining Stalemate

The weekend's big live Premier League game comes from The Etihad in a mouth-watering lunchtime clash on Saturday as Manchester City take on Liverpool and we are anticipating an entertaining stalemate...

  • Manchester City won 1 of their home games against last season's top-eight Premier League teams - Drew 5, Lost 1
  • Sergio Aguero has scored in 5 of his last 6 home league games against Liverpool

Big Game Mentality

Both sides have opened the new league campaign with two wins and a draw from their respective games to raise hopes among their fans of a genuine crack at the title this term, although we get the impression that neither side would be too disappointed with a point apiece from a game against a fellow title hopeful.

It is difficult to back City at odds-on as they failed to win eight of their home games last season (won eleven, drew seven, lost one) and they struggled against the better teams on home soil.

Indeed, Pep Guardiola's men drew five of their meetings at home against the teams that finished last season in the top-eight (won one, lost one) and they come up against a Liverpool side that always raises their game for these big occasions.

Jurgen Klopp's side went unbeaten in overall meetings with the top-eight last season (won seven, drew seven) and we will be backing the draw at 3/1 with Bet Victor.
Match Odds:

Head-To-Head

Liverpool have won five of their past seven Premier League meetings with City (drawn one, lost one) but it is worth noting that they have only managed to win three of their last ten fixtures in the league at City (drew three, lost four).

The Reds should relish playing City if their hosts play a back-three as Sadio Mane and Mo Salah will relish the space provided and it is worth backing the visitors to score over 1.5 goals (6/4 with Betfred) for a fifth time in six games this season.

South American Outcasts

Finally, when looking for a goalscorer in this match, it is worth noting that Philippe Coutinho is 7/2 to score at anytime (Paddy Power) after notching five in his past seven against City, albeit it is obviously doubtful whether he will start following his recent transfer furore.

Meanwhile, Sergio Aguero was left out of Guardiola's last starting line-up but he is 18/5 to be first goalscorer (Unibet) after notching in five of the last six Man City v Liverpool fixtures at home.
