Liverpool vs. Manchester City

Being the perfectionist that he is, Pep Guardiola may have been mildly irked not to have broken the previous top-flight record for consecutive wins he had set with his Bayern side. The bigger picture is Manchester City remain unbeaten and currently own a 15-point advantage at the top.

No side can be expected to keep pace with the Citizens so far this season, but Liverpool represent a realistic slip up for the champions in waiting, and a positive head to head result for the likes of Chelsea and United in their meetings to come way just keep things interesting.

Klopp's men are currently fourth, but could move to second and close the gap between them and City to 15 points should other results also go their way. Below you can find our betting advice for this match.

Liverpool are outsiders at 2/1 with Bet365, whilst the draw is best odds 13/5 through Betfred. Sunday provides an increasingly rare occasion where City are above even money. The visitors are 5/4 with Betfair.

Liverpool's early season trip to Manchester City was marred by a red card that saw the visitors capitulate. An early goal and a whirlwind start already saw the reds up against it, but Sadio Mane's sending off took away Liverpool's biggest threat and gave City the space they needed.

The atmosphere at Anfield could make for a very different game. Liverpool's energetic play and pressing could be enough to topple City, who themselves have struggled against the press in recent weeks. City narrowly escaped Crystal Palace with a 0-0 draw, whilst late goals saved them against West Ham and Southampton. All three sides pressed and took the game to City.

Manchester City's last three away games have seen them win just once by a single goal to nil, with their game at Swansea being the only game to be settled by more than a single goal which was predicted by the football tipsters at Tipsters Review. Everything points towards a much tighter affair than the earlier reverse.

Betting tip: Back Liverpool +0.25AH at 9/10 with Bet365

Across all competitions, Liverpool are actually on a better run than Manchester City in the last 17 games. They're the only side who have managed to come close to City's tally, matching them with 16 over the last six games. Klopp's men have also better balanced the overall demands of the fixture list, winning three and drawing one.

But since Champions League action took a back seat the Reds have been more dangerous than ever. They've scored nine in their last three home games against Premier League opposition, beating Swansea, Leicester, and Everton.

Any team willing to press and attack City have found success, and they have found the net. Mohamed Salah looks as unstoppable as anyone in the City ranks, whilst equally it seems unlikely Liverpool can pin City's front line down.
