Liverpool v Manchester City Betting Tips – Premier League 14th January 4.00pm

This could be a humdinger of a match. Liverpool are really the only ones in the top flight who can match the attacking thrills of Manchester City and after having taken a beating at the Etihad earlier in the season, they will be out for revenge on home soil. Manchester City will be defending their unbeaten form for the season of course and they head into the weekend fifteen points clear at the top. This could be a really tough away game for them though and they will be under pressure.

Liverpool News and Form

Liverpool are on a run of thirteen Premier League matches unbeaten. Will they be the ones to be able to stop Manchester City’s unbeaten streak this season? The Reds have not tasted defeat on home soil in the top flight this season, so they have the form to potentially pull this offer. They have won their last two on home soil, beating Swansea and Leicester and they have rattled off at least two goals in each of their last five games home and away. At Anfield, this season in the top flight Liverpool have averaged just a shade under a couple of goals per games, while their defence has been impressive. Jurgen Klopp’s men have conceded only four goals at Anfield this season in the league, but even with that, you would probably be looking at both teams to score at Bet365 for the game at 8/15 odds* (Betting Odds taken from January 11th, 2018 at 9.12 pm). If they could have kept Philippe Coutinho around for one more game it would have been for this one. But he is with Barcelona now and that’s a big blow for the Reds and there’s a big void to fill there. Mo Salah has seventeen league goals for the season and is in at 6/4 in the anytime goalscorer market* (Betting Odds taken from January 11th, 2018 at 9.12 pm). Liverpool’s home form has been good this season, and they may be able to push the Citizens to their limits.

Manchester City News and Form

City had the disadvantage of having played an extra midweek game, with them squaring off against Bristol City in the EFL Cup semi-final first leg which they won 2-1. Their long unbeaten sequence for the season will really be put to the test in this one but they did get back to winning ways last weekend following their surprise 0-0 draw at Crystal Palace which snapped their record-breaking winning streak. The Citizens took out Watford 3-1 last weekend at home. City are W10 D1 on the road this season and they have had the tight squeeze here and there on their travels as six of their ten road victories this season have all been by a one-goal margin, including narrow victories at the likes of Bournemouth, West Brom, Huddersfield and Newcastle. Backing the Citizens to win by a one-goal margin is 10/3 odds at Bet365* (Betting Odds taken from January 11th, 2018 at 9.17 pm). City, of course, boast tremendous scoring power and they average over two goals per game on the road in the top flight this season so they will push hard for three points. They have also collected a clean sheet in 64% of their away games with just the five away goals conceded. This should be a high scoring game again between the two of them and a really big test of Manchester City’s character.

Liverpool v Manchester City Head to Head

Liverpool took a chastening 5-0 defeat at the Etihad earlier in the season, however, their home form against City is good. Very good. The Reds have won their last four Premier League home games against City now and overall in their last six Premier League contest against them, Liverpool are W4 D1 L1 home and away. In total Liverpool will be defending a sixteen match unbeaten streak of form at Anfield against City in all competitions. That has to be worth taking into consideration.

Liverpool v Manchester City Predictions

Liverpool to win: Yes, we are going to go there. Liverpool’s home form over City speaks for itself and they have the goals and pace to hurt City. The Citizens have had some tight squeezes out on the road this season and Liverpool could give as good as they get in this one. Home win.
