Liverpool vs Manchester City predictions and betting tips for Sunday’s Premier League fixture including a first goalscorer tip, total goals prediction and team to win prediction.
League leaders Manchester City head to Anfield this weekend to take on Liverpool. City are top of the table, unbeaten and playing some of the best football in the world right now, but will Liverpool be able to cause an upset?
The reds aren’t doing too bad themselves. They are a healthy fourth place, taking up the bottom Champions League spot, and if they had been more consistent could have been even higher. They have one of the most consistent league performers in Mohammed Salah, whom has been excellent in all areas of the pitch so far, mainly goalscoring, but they may have to do without him this weekend as he’s picked up a minor injury in what will be the toughest game of the season to come.
As much as Liverpool are in good form at the moment, I can’t see them getting anything from this game. They have won four of their last five games and they drew the other, but they could be missing star man Mohammed Salah for this game, due to him picking up a knock. City have also won four out of their last five matches, but the difference is City are still unbeaten. They have an impressive 20 wins and just two draws. They are unstoppable this season with multiple prolific goalscorers and a deep commitment to win even from behind. Just when it looks like they might get their first loss they come back from behind to get the victory. They have possibly won the title already with the 15 point gap they have between them and second placed rivals Man United. Liverpool aren’t doing too bad so far, they are fourth place and in good form to climb the table. Should they be more consistent then second place is achievable for them. I can’t see anything other than a Manchester City win for my Liverpool vs Manchester City predictions, they should have way too much quality for the reds, even though they will put up a fight and make it interesting.
All of Liverpool’s last five games have gone over 2.5 goals and three of Man City’s last five have also gone over 2.5 goals. Three of the last five times these sides have met they have seen over 2.5 goals. They both play fast paced attacking football and are scoring lots of goals this season. This game looks to follow suit and be a goal-filled entertaining fixture. Over 2.5 Goals is our banker Liverpool vs Manchester City prediction for the Super Sunday clash.
Aguero is prolific as usual this season. He has been so for many years now and this season is more of the same. He has 13 goals so far in the Premier League and eight goals in his last ten games in all competitions. It’s hard to find good odds where there are strikers like Aguero on the pitch, but if you were to pick a goalscorer for our Liverpool vs Manchester City predictions then Aguero to score first is decent value at 4/1 considering his form.

Liverpool will be playing their first game without Philippe Coutiho after his move to Barcelona. Daniel Sturridge, Mohammed Salah and Alberto Moreno are all doubts with small injury concerns. Jordan Henderson, Marko Grujic, Nathaniel Clyne and Adam Bogdan are still out with injuries.
The City XI is expected to be back to normal after Pep made some changes against Burnley in the FA Cup. Gabriel Jesus, Vincent Kompany, Phil Foden and Benjamin Mendy are unable to play due to injury.
Liverpool have a significant advantage on the stats here. They have won 101 games to Man City’s 54 wins. They have shared the spoils 52 times.
