Although the two teams started incredibly fast winning six matches and drawing one, Liverpool had tougher matches to overcome than Man City. Liverpool won (2-1) against the Spurs at Wembley, followed by (1-1) draw against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge. Man City on the other side played against lower tier teams, recording a routine (2-0) win over Brighton on the weekend. Online betting sites in the United Kingdom suggest it is worth betting on Liverpool to outplay
Manchester City, as the Citizens suffer from injuries and their boss Pep Guardiola has a bad record against Liverpool.
Liverpool v City Line-Up
Liverpool scored 18 goals in all competitions this season, yet only 10 have been scored by the front three Salah, Mane, and Firmino. The other eight goals have been scored by different strikers, midfielders, and even defenders. Liverpool are expected to be fully equipped with the first eleven, making it very hard for Guardiola to seek victory at Anfield. However, there is a little need for panic, as Mo Salah is not performing well lately, and there are rumors on the lack of understanding between him and Sadio Mane.
On the other hand, Manchester City will visit their title rivals, missing some very important players. Sergio Aguero is at doubt to take a trip to Anfield, as he did not recover yet from the foot injury. Fabian Delph is set to miss the match as well, and Benjamin Mendy is still battling for fitness. Guardiola will not be able to push Kevin De Bruyne into the pitch, as he needs another month to get ready.
