Liverpool v Man City Betting Offers and Tips
Mark Hughes became the latest Premier League manager to get the sack last weekend. The Potters’ defeat to Coventry in the FA Cup was the final straw for the club’s hierarchy and you’d have to say that the sack was coming after consistently poor results.
It’s understandable that clubs make changes when things go wrong for a prolonged period but in the short term, there’s often nothing that managers can do.
Take Jurgen Klopp for example. The Liverpool manager appeared to get everything right in the planning for his team’s match against Man City back in September.
Liverpool gave as good as they got in the early stages of the match and were unlucky not to take the lead. Then Sadio Mané was sent off for a reckless challenge on Man City goalkeeper, Ederson.
The home side took full advantage of their numerical advantage from that point, winning the game 5-0 as Klopp could only watch on.
Can Liverpool Exact Revenge at Anfield?
There was also little Klopp could do about the recent sale of Philippe Coutinho. The German stood firm in the summer and managed to get the best out of Coutinho after his initial flirtations with Barcelona but when the Catalan giants came back with a deal worth around A$245,000,000, the writing was on the wall.
All Klopp can do now is work with Liverpool to try and replace the Brazilian playmaker and ensure that his team are fully prepared for Man City’s visit to Anfield on Sunday.
Backed by a packed house, Liverpool will take to the pitch with confidence. They’re yet to lose at home this season and have lost just twice in the league.
Liverpool will surely have good spells in the game but it’s doubtful that they’ll have enough to stop Pep Guardiola’s rampaging Man City side.
The Citizens have one hand on the EPL title already, are unbeaten in the league and full of confidence. They may well concede against Liverpool but the best bet looks to be on Man City to win and both teams to score at $3.30 with Sportsbet.
One for the Neutrals
Truth be told, FA Cup third round weekend was a damp squib. There were some entertaining matches in amongst the damp squibs though, including Liverpool’s 2-1 win over Everton and Man City’s comeback win over Burnley.
It’s no surprise that Liverpool and Man City brought the entertainment once again, it’s how Klopp and Guardiola want their teams to play.
You can guarantee that both managers will be looking to go on the front foot on Sunday’s game and should, therefore, consider a bet on over 3.5 goals at $2.35 with Centrebet.
With Liverpool expected to pose a major goal threat, Man City will likely have to score multiple times to secure their 21st league win of the campaign (from 23 games!). So make sure to have a bet on Man City to score over 1.5 goals at $1.75 with William Hill.
Sterling to Haunt His Former Team
Although Liverpool are upset to lose Coutinho, they have made a phenomenal profit from him.
The competitive nature of the Premier League means teams are always looking for the next big thing just as Liverpool did with Raheem Sterling. He starred for Liverpool after joining the club from QPR but he too decided to leave for pastures new.
Sterling has made big strides forward since joining Man City, especially since Guardiola joined the club. He’s scored the earliest and latest goal of the season so far and should pop up with another goal to silence Anfield at $2.85 with Unibet.
