LIVERPOOL VS MAN CITY BETTING PREVIEW
Man City’s grip on the 2020/21 title race tightened in midweek as a 2-0 win over Burnley for the Citizens ensured Pep Guardiola’s side moved three points clear at the top of the table, but it’s been a bleak week for Sunday’s hosts.
Liverpool’s title defence suffered a nasty blow on Wednesday night as they lost 1-0 to Brighton to slip seven points behind City in the fight for the title.
That was a second home defeat on the spin for the Reds after they previously went 68 games unbeaten at Anfield, and all the pressure looks to be on Liverpool this weekend with hopes of a second successive Premier League title starting to fade.
The visitors know a win on Sunday will pull them a massive 10-points clear of the title holders, with a game in hand on the Reds to boot. It’s 113/100 for City to inflict a hat-trick of home EPL defeats on Jürgen Klopp’s men.
With only five points separating the clubs when they met in the reverse fixture in November, this game proved a cagey encounter at the Etihad, ending in a hard-fought 1-1 draw. Both goals came in the first half of that game, and it’s 197/100 for the first half to have the most goals again on Sunday.
Raheem Sterling has been back on song for City of late, netting three goals in his last four games, including a clinical strike against Burnley in midweek.
He’s 17/10 to get back on the scoresheet again at his former stomping ground.
Both recent home defeats for Liverpool have been by a one-goal margin, and history could repeat itself here in what could be a tactical battle of wills.
Back City to snatch the points in a tight contest, with the visitors 38/5 to leave Merseyside with a 1-0 win.
