Liverpool vs Man City Prediction and Odds: Preview

Liverpool remains the only club in the top four to have not lost a match so far as City, Chelsea, and Manchester United have tasted defeat in the league this season.

The Reds have laid the foundation stone for a solid start and a win against City could only brighten their chance of grabbing the 20th Premier League title at the end of the current season.

Despite not being very active in the summer transfer window Klopp has managed to create a sizable gap between Liverpool and other top sides.

Manchester City showed in the last game they are here to stay as they crippled the Chelsea defense with an eye pleasing exhibition of attacking football.

The city’s failure to bring in a proper number nine hasn’t been a problem so far as the likes of Phil Foden, Gabriel Jesus, and Ferran Torres have settled in nicely.

The city has looked dangerous in times and their relentless press sometimes forces their opponents to commit mistakes. Jesus has been shifted to a wider role and he has impressed since then.

City missed a number of chances against Chelsea but they need to be more precise as Liverpool will not hold on and will hurl back.

Brentford unleashed Ivan Toney who took chances to disrupt their opponent as Liverpool’s defensive shambles were too flashy.

City’s free flowing attack will be needed a buffer to be stopped and  Virgil van Dijk and Joel Matip should get the job done this time.

Mohamed Salah has been in devastating form and Liverpool will definitely take their chance this season to bring back the trophy home.

Liverpool vs Man City Prediction and Odds: Recent Form

Given the poor start to the current campaign, Manchester City fans had hoped to salvage some points against Chelsea and Liverpool in the Premier League. But City’s near to perfect gameplan against Chelsea worked brilliantly and it is time for the English champions to step on the gas pedal.

Bernardo Silva ran the show at Stamford Bridge as the Portuguese controlled the game from unknown territory. Guardiola showered praises on his one of the most loyal disciples.

”What a performance. Holding midfielder is not his role but he knows exactly how to play it and how to anticipate what is going to happen, with the ball or without the ball. 

All I want is for Bernardo to be happy, here or anywhere. All I want is his happiness because he’s a guy who deserves the best. You cannot play in this way if you are not happy, it’s impossible.

He was an incredible signing for us, because he’s an exceptional person. I’ll never forget the second Premier League we won, with 98 points. He was the best player in England. After that he dropped a little bit, but now he’s back.”

Guardiola’s fearsome attack will have to deal with the challenge of Virgil van Dijk. The Dutch defender saved one point for the Reds with a last ditch tackle on Brentford forward Ivan Toney who almost had won it for the home side.

The defender has been rock solid since his arrival from Southampton and was instrumental in Liverpool’s Premier League and Champions League triumph. He can pose a serious threat aerially in the opposition box and has a knack for scoring crucial goals for his team.

The defender missed a long period for an injury but is now back at his best and could challenge City’s Premier League credentials in the next match.

Despite Liverpool’s dominance Guardiola’s attention to every little detail could be back to hunt Jurgen Klopp’s side.
