Sport Betting Tip: Liverpool - Manchester City
- Title : Sport Betting Tip: Liverpool - Manchester City
Manchester City are much different this season as they are very strong defensively. That means they can win but with less goals required and they have been doing just that. That was more how Liverpool used to play last season. Liverpool have a patchy defence now with several central defenders unavailable. That should cost them in games against opponents like Manchester City. This should be a hard fought game but Manchester City are in such good form it is hard to go against them.
City's defensive record this season has been remarkable but this has all the hallmarks of a game that'll have goals. Liverpool will be 10 points behind the pride of Manchester with a defeat and surely that'll prompt City to go for the jugular as it'd pretty much end Liverpool's hopes of retaining the title. A win for Liverpool might just plant a few seeds of doubt into the City team so the going for the victory is of equal importance. I fancy an open game here and for me both teams scoring looks likely.. 1-3 City.
Manchester City rarely throw in 5-6 goals anymore but instead they are completely impossible to break down. The light blues won their last match against Burnley with 2-0 and then The Clarets had 0.05 in expected goals. It's the lowest figure I've ever seen and says the most about how tight the light blues are backwards.
Stones and Dias complement each other perfectly as midfielders and with Rodri in the middle, they also get the help they need. 13 conceded in 21 league matches is the result for Pep Guardiola's army, which has now won all of its last 13 competitive matches. Kevin de Bruyne is still away and it is of course a massive break, but there are so many class players in this team that City can play the same anyway.
In the Belgian's absence, Gündogan has stepped up big and been the spider in the net in midfield. Manchester City have not beaten Liverpool at Anfield in league games since 2003! Given how good they have been over the last ten years, it is an incredible achievement. Is there ever a time for that suite to be broken, it is now when Liverpool are injured and have not scored in three straight home fights.
I think this City team is just too good right now. Guardialo has finally built a back line that is strong enough to win at the highest level, and they don’t have to rely on putting 3 or 4 in every game. That’s a huge advantage, and I believe they have too much quality across the pitch for Liverpool to match right now. Take City to win.
