Liverpool will welcome Manchester City to Anfield for a matchday 7 fixture in England Premier League. The last meeting on 7th February 2021 ended in a Manchester City 4-1 win. Both sides have met thirty-five times in the most recent seasons. Liverpool has won 14 matches, and Manchester City triumphed in 8. Recent outings average 3.00 goals, while both teams score 63% of the time.
Liverpool’s latest fixture against Brentford ended in an away 3-3 draw. They were very dangerous in front positions, so one point was the least they deserved. Liverpool scored in both halves in the 31st, 54th and 67th minute.
Manchester City’s previous game in the competition versus Chelsea ended in an away 1-0 win. Manchester City was comfortable on the ball for most of the game and constantly avoided the press. Manchester City was not convincing in the first-half and scored in the 53rd minute.
The Reds has one of the best defence in the league. They have kept a clean sheet in 67% of their home games.
Manchester City has picked up 13 points from the previous six league games. They still have a lot to prove when playing away from home. Manchester City wins 2.00 points per away game, a bit less than their home record shows.
It is hard to choose a favourite in this one. Both teams look evenly-matched and have their strengths. I am not willing to take a risk and prefer a double chance bet. My prediction is Liverpool or Draw.
I expect a thrilling contest with plenty of goals. Both sides score and concede on average 1.67 goals per game. Over 2.5 goals were scored in an average of 17% of Liverpool’s home and Manchester City’s away games. My prediction is Over 2.5 Goals.
Both sides have plenty of quality in the attack which often results in high-scoring games. I don’t think this one on Sunday will be any different. On average, both teams score in 17% of Liverpool’s home and Manchester City’s away games. My prediction is Both Teams to Score: Yes.
