Liverpool vs Man City Odds: Can Liverpool turn things around with a victory?
Liverpool and Manchester City have been the top dogs of the Premier League since the 2017/18 season. No other side has won the league since then. The two have been competing on the highest level with just a point separating them on two occasions.
The last six seasons have been the Man City-Liverpool era. New Manchester United manager Erik ten Hag said ahead of the season ‘Eras come to an end.” Could the Dutchman be right? Liverpool have had a shocking start to the season and sit tenth after their first 8 games. This game could be make or break for their title dreams.
Where has it all gone wrong for Liverpool?
Liverpool in the last five seasons have been a force to be reckoned with, but this season they just haven’t looked the same. Before, they would have long stretched unbeaten runs and never look like losing. Now, they look shaky every week. Let’s take a look at their results so far in the Premier League:
- Fulham (A)- 2-2 draw
- Crystal Palace (H)- 1-1 draw
- Manchester United (A)- 2-1 loss
- Bournemouth (H)- 9-0 win
- Newcastle (H)- 2-1 win
- Everton (A)- 0-0 draw
- Brighton (H)- 3-3 draw
- Arsenal- (A)- 3-2 loss
Jurgen Klopp’s once mighty reds have won just twice in eight games. After the high standards they have set, this is far from good enough. To make matters worse, their next test comes against Manchester City who have been brilliant this season and remain the only unbeaten side left in the league. It will be a big ask for them to keep City at bay and come out with three points,
If City win, the gap will be astonishing and leave Liverpool with an incredible amount of ground to make up.
Our Liverpool Pick
Liverpool winning this game has the highest payout price it’s had in years and they need this result. If they are to win we can definitely see both sides getting on the scoresheet. Here are what the Liverpool vs Man City odds with both teams to score look like:
Man City thriving with Haaland at the centre
Erling Haaland already has 15 goals in the Premier league this season. Fifteen! We are nine games in… The Norwegian forward has been nothing short of a revelation at Manchester City. He’s developed impressive on-pitch relationships with his teammates already. You’d think Haaland and de Bruyne had been playing together for years…
Given both sides’ form, it comes as no surprise to see Man City as strong favourites for this one. Erling Haaland has already netted one at Anfield in his career, for RB Salzburg. This was during Liverpool’s Premier League title winning season.
Our Man City Pick
As previously mentioned, the Liverpool vs Man City odds are heavy in favour of Man City. So instead of simply backing a Manchester City win, we will be backing them to win to nil’. This comes in at 31/10 on 888Sport.
Liverpool vs Man City Odds: Our Predictions
We can see this game being quite bad for Liverpool, they have been awful defensively this season and City have been magnificent going forward. City were able to put six past Man United who had conceded 2 in four games before. Liverpool have conceded six in their last two!
Phil Foden or Jack Grealish will have a field day running at Trent Alexander Arnold and Haaland will have no issues in the box against a low on confidence Virgil van Dijk. Our score prediction, 4-1 Manchester City. The 888Sport odds for this are 60/1. Gamble responsibly.
