The season’s biggest game is nearly here as Liverpool welcomes Manchester City for a Premier League clash that has enthralled the public in the past few years.
Both sides are desperate to write history and become the Premier League champions again, and this early October meeting could install the winner as the title favourite. Here’s a close look at the Liverpool vs Manchester City betting options at LV BET.
LIVERPOOL VS MANCHESTER CITY: BETTING
Tuesday night made for pleasant viewing for Liverpool fans. Not only did the swashbuckling Reds not need to get out of second gear against a hopeless Porto side, but at the same time, Sunday’s opponents Manchester City were being given a bit of a lesson in Paris.
Some Liverpool supporters say Mo Salah is the world’s most in-form forward. The stats certainly back that up after he found the back of the net twice in Liverpool’s Champions League fixture. The Egyptian striker could have gotten his name on the scoresheet again and bagged in a hat-trick if he wasn’t given a rest with most of the second half to play.
Facts state the club have scored 20 goals in their last six matches.
Liverpool have notched three or more in each of those games – can they do the same on Sunday?
Fancy Salah to again star and light up Anfield by helping his team to a massive win against a title rival? He is 13/9 (2.44) to score at any time, and if you fancy him to find the net first, that is available at 47/10 (5.7).
What about another Anfield comeback? City to be ahead at half-time but to go on to lose is 11/1 (12.00).
Fans of Manchester City are never really sure which team will turn up so far this season; the side that won at Chelsea after pulling apart Norwich, Arsenal and RB Leipzig, or the team who was so poor against PSG, Spurs and Southampton?
One this is for sure, Tuesday’s Champions League defeat in France left a lot of questions that need to be answered.
City’s next big test comes in the form of their main rivals from the past few years. Pep Guardiola knows that his team needs to make a statement at Anfield, but Liverpool look like a dangerous side who are back at their very best and more capable of producing a result of their own.
Jurgen Klopp has said that this Sunday his team will need to be better than they were in Porto. With that added bit of pressure on the line, City know that they can’t afford to slip up – if they do, the champions could be in real danger.
If you fancy a repeat of Manchester City’s last Premier League fixture against Chelsea, LV BET have a 1-0 away win priced at 25/4 (7.25).
But if you think these sides who really know where the goal is will fire blanks, a 0-0 is offered 12/1 (13.00).
He got the winner at Chelsea and Gabriel Jesus is 5/2 (3.50) to score at any time on Sunday.
Raheem Sterling is due a big moment – we have him at 7/1 (8.00) to be the last goalscorer.
