Can Liverpool end Manchester City’s Unbeaten Premier League Run?
January 14th throws up one of the most highly anticipated Premier League clashes of 2018 as Manchester City travel to face Liverpool at Anfield. Pep’s side may have been beaten in the Champions League but they remain undefeated in the Premier League and they’ll be hoping to keep that record in tact against Jurgen Klopp’s men. Despite his personal troubles, David Silva stood out against Burnley in the FA Cup and he could return from Spain in time for this crucial fixture.
City missing stars but still a force to be reckoned with
City remain without Gabriel Jesus, Kyle Walker and Benjamin Mendy for this tie although they still have a wonderfully talented squad who will be expected to take at least a point from this match. Pep’s side weren’t convincing during their last away trip as they were let off the hook by a late penalty miss at Selhurst Park and better is expected here.
Despite their underwhelming performance in South London, many of the top online bookmakers here at BettingTop10 have them priced up as favourites for this tie with Betfair offering a standout 5/4 for the visitors.
Van Dijk looking to continue great start
New signing Virgil Van Dijk got off to a flying start against Everton in the FA Cup as he netted the winner and helped his side edge past their city rivals. He will be hoping to further endear himself to the Anfield faithful with another commanding performance here. He is 25/1 to make it two goals in two appearances with William Hill./p>
The following day, Manchester United host manager-less Stoke at Old Trafford. Jose Mourinho’s side will be hoping to give the home crowd something to cheer against the beleaguered Potters who face a tough task in their first game since Mark Hughes was dismissed. The hosts are 7/12 to cover the -1 handicap and possess in-form Jesse Lingard, who is likely to have a big impact on this game.
