Liverpool vs Manchester City Tips


This storied fixture has brought plenty of goals in recent times with both sides being largely inseparable over the course of the past four years. 

With Liverpool’s recent poor form in the Premier League, I’m tipping over 2.5 goals and BTTS with City to nab an away victory. 

  • Liverpool have lost 2 home matches in a row.
  • Liverpool have struggled for goals, scoring 4 goals in their past 7 matches (Premier League)
  • Manchester City have won the first half in their past 4 away matches. 

Head to Head


Liverpool have an 88-49 advantage in the head to head, with 49 draws in a total of 184 matches between the two sides.

Liverpool and Manchester City have won one game each and have had one draw in their past 3 matches. 

Their most recent meeting was earlier this season in a 1-1 draw with Mohamed Salah’s early penalty being cancelled out by Gabriel Jesus.

Liverpool Form


Liverpool sit third on the Premier League table but are in relatively poor form by their standards.

Their most recent home game saw them lose to Brighton for a second straight home loss. They struggled against the relegation battlers despite having 64% possession as Steven Alzate’s 56th minute strike sealing a shock victory for Brighton. 

In their last two away trips, Liverpool defeated Tottenham and West Ham 3-1. 

Liverpool Team News


A number of new signings saw Liverpool secure defenders Ben Davies and Ozan Kabak on transfer deadline day. Both are unlikely to start against Manchester City. 

Joel Matip earlier this week was confirmed to miss the rest of the season with an ankle ligament injury ruling him out.

Virgil van Dijk, Joe Gomez, Sadio Mane, Diogo Jota, Fabinho and Naby Keita are sidelined.

Manchester City Form


Manchester City have been in scintillating form having been unbeaten in the Premier League since late November. They have won a stunning eight in a row.

Their most recent away game was a 2-0 win against Burnley as Gabriel Jesus and Raheem Sterling’s first half goals earned them the victory.

The strong momentum was gained from their game against Sheffield United at home last weekend where they won 1-0 courtesy of a 9th minute Gabriel Jesus strike, his first since November. 

Manchester City Team News


Pep Guardiola’s side will be without star midfielder Kevin De Bruyne for another four weeks. 

City legend Sergio Aguero returned to training this week after recovering from COVID but he won’t be considered for selection against Liverpool. Nathan Ake has also been injured for the past 10 matches.

Verdict

With Liverpool’s recent shock home losses against Burnley and Brighton, City should capitalise on Liverpool’s poor form at home. 

I’m backing over 2.5 goals and BTTS with Manchester City to win.
