Moneyline: Manchester City -105 | Liverpool +245
Why bet on Manchester City?
Manchester City have 11 points (tenth place) with a 3-2-1 record, and they have scored nine goals and allowed eight. It has been a rocky start for the ‘Citizens’, but they have one game less than Liverpool (16 points). If they beat Liverpool and win the reprogramed game against Aston Villa, they could climb to first place.
Last week, Manchester City beat Sheffield United 1-0 with a goal from defender Kyle Walker. Pep Guardiola’s style gives everybody, including the defenders, the liberty to attack constantly. Midweek, they beat Olympiacos 3-0 in the Champions League. Ferran Torres, Gabriel Jesus and Joao Cancelo did the scoring.
Manchester City have eight games in a row (all competitions) without losing. During that period, they have a 6-2-0 record and have scored 16 goals while allowing just three.
They already played against one of the other members of the English Premier League ‘Big Six’ (Arsenal. Chelsea, Manchester United, Manchester City, Liverpool and Tottenham) and won. They beat Arsenal 1-0 with a goal from Raheem Sterling. Actually, Raheem Sterling and Phil Foden are the team top scorers with two goals each.
Why Bet on Liverpool?
The reigning champions sit at the top of the Premier League with 16 points (5-1-1 record). Their only loss was an embarrassing one; 7-2 against Aston Villa. Since losing against Aston Villa, Liverpool owns a 2-1-0 record. In total, the ‘Reds’ have scored 17 goals (second best in the league, one behind Tottenham) and allowed 15.
Believe it or not, just Albion have allowed more goals (16) than Liverpool. Of course, we have to remember that Virgil van Dijk is out due to injury and he’s their best defensive man.
Last week, Liverpool beat West Ham 2-1; Mohamed Salah and Diogo Jota scored the goals. Diogo Joto has been sensational as he also scored three goals in their Champions League midweek game against Atalanta. Nevertheless, coach Jurgen Klopp said that Roberto Firmino is Liverpool’s starting striker.
The offensive weapons that Liverpool have are too many. Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane, Roberto Firmino, Diogo Jota, Xherdan Shaquiri and Takumi Minamino; anyone can be the player of the game.
Discarded Players and Projected Line-ups
Besides Virgil van Dijk, Liverpool will be without Fabinho and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, both also injured. Their expected lineup is Allison, Trevor Alexander-Arnold, Joe Gomez, Nathaniel Phillips, Andrew Robertson, Jordan Henderson, Curtis Jones, Georginio Wijnaldum, Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino. Pep Guardiola can’t count on Sergio ‘Kun’ Aguero, Fernandinho and Benjamin Mendy; all injured.
The ‘Citizens’ are expected to go into the field with Ederson Moraes, Kyle Walker, Josh Stones, Aymeric Laporte, Joao Cancelo, Kevin De Bruyne, Rodri, Ilkay Gundogan, Bernardo Silva, Raheem Sterling and Gabriel Jesus.
Pick: Liverpool to Win
Over/Under 3 goals: Manchester City (3-2-1) | Liverpool (5-1-1)
As we already mentioned, Liverpool owns the second-best offensive record in the Premier League with 17 goals (2.4 goals per game), but their defense is very vulnerable (2.1 goals per game).
Regarding Manchester City, they average 1.5 goals per game (for) and 1.3 goals per game (against).
The last time these two teams drew without goals was in the 2018-2019 season. Since that game, their matchups have had at least three goals in total.
So far this season, Liverpool have scored at least two goals in every Premier League game, and they come from a huge victory (5-0) against a very good Italian team. Manchester City have won their last three Premier League games 1-0, but in the Champions League they have scored at least three goals in every game.
You can expect fireworks here as both teams like to constantly attack and score as many goals as they can.
Pick: Over 3 goals
