Liverpool Preview – Can the Reds make home advantage count?

Liverpool are sitting pretty at the top of the Premier League after six games. They are the only team in the division to have taken 14 points. However, five clubs are just a point behind Jurgen Klopp’s men, including Man City.

Liverpool were frustrated by Brentford last weekend, with the 2020-21 EFL Championship play-off winners holding the Reds to a 3-3 draw at the Brentford Community Stadium. The Bees came from behind twice to snatch a point. Nevertheless, the Merseysiders bounced back with a thumping 5-1 away win over Porto in the UEFA Champions League in midweek.

Our betting prediction:
Both teams to score

(odds taken 1838 GMT, Friday 1 October)

Being the home side, Liverpool will want to take the game to their visitors, but they must be wary of Man City’s deadly attacking prowess. The Reds are the slight second favourites here at 9/5.

Manchester City Preview – Will City leave Merseyside with all three points?

It has been a mixed week for Pep Guardiola and his Manchester City superstars. Last Saturday, Gabriel Jesus’ strike earned City a 1-0 victory over Chelsea at Stamford Bridge. However, they were beaten by Paris Saint-Germain in the Champions League in midweek, losing 2-0 in the French capital.

Before the midweek European loss, Man City had won six and drawn one of seven in all competitions. It was their first reverse since losing to Tottenham Hotspur on the opening weekend of the Premier League season.
