Man City Take on Liverpool in Mouth-Watering Clash
This Saturday sees a tantalising top-of-the-table clash between Premier League title hopefuls Manchester City and Liverpool at the Etihad Stadium in Manchester. The Reds will be aiming to continue their exceptional form after smashing four goals past Arsenal in their last league outing, while the Sky Blues will be seeking to gain some momentum of their own following a few unconvincing displays.
Despite Pep Guardiola’s charges getting off to a slow start this season and not yet hitting full throttle, William Hill have the 2013-14 champions at 17/20 to claim the three points when they host Jürgen Klopp’s men this weekend. In terms of form, both teams have won two matches and drawn one this season, but it is Liverpool that have looked more cohesive and threatening.
Liverpool’s attack has taken little time to move up the gears, with Sadio Mane, Roberto Firmino, and Mohamed Salah having already notched seven goals between them. In comparison, Sergio Aguero and Gabriel Jesus have one apiece, while Raheem Sterling tops the scoring charts for the Citizens with two. Despite the Reds forwards registering more shots and goals, the bookies are favouring City’s South American duo for anytime goal scorers – both are at evens with Ladbrokes, while Firmino can be backed at 2/1.
City haven’t beaten Liverpool in the league since August 2014. Since then, the Reds have won four of the last five encounters, with the most recent meeting ending in a draw at the Etihad back in March. Can City break the trend and pick up a much-needed win against Liverpool, or will Klopp’s charges run riot again and show the world their table-topping potential?
