It is widely acknowledged as the biggest Premier League match to take place in many years – but who will get their noses in front in the title race?
Here are all the betting options available with LV BET as Manchester City and Liverpool clash in a huge game at the Etihad.
MANCHESTER CITY VS LIVERPOOL: BETTING TIPS
PREMIER LEAGUE FORM: W – D – W – W – L
The team that boasted a 13-point lead just a few months ago have been roped back into a title fight as a relentless Liverpool side piled on pressure and City dropped points on various occasions. In recent years in the Premier League, we have witnessed some of the greatest runs, with both Liverpool and City pushing each other to their startling best.
If Pep’s side have title nerves, they are doing a pretty good job not showing them, as even their dropped points against Crystal Palace are now not looking so bad. Manchester City will know what is required of them and will surely be up for it, as will their fans as they approach a season-defining match, a battle for the ages.
Manchester City had the perfect warm-up to next weekend’s game against Atletico Madrid in the Champions League as the Spanish side sat deep, inviting pressure and trying to hit on the break. Still, a young Phil Foden danced his way to the edge of the box, finding his teammate De Bruyne to net the winner.

PREMIER LEAGUE FORM: W – W – W – W – W
A few weeks ago, Jurgen Klopp dismissed that his side are in any fight for the title, things change quickly, and that is football. Now just a point away from City after enduring a superb run of winning 11 games in a row, suggesting Liverpool come into this game with more confidence than ever before. Some might argue that wins against Watford and Crystal Palace were far from convincing, but that shows even when not playing at their best, the Reds can win football matches, and that is how you win titles.
Both sides have been involved in the Champions League in mid-week, with Liverpool securing a 3-1 victory over Benfica to put them in a commanding position to secure their Semi-Final place in the competition, with the quadruple still within reach.
Next Sunday, Jurgen Klopp’s side look towards securing their fifth Premier League away win in a row, knowing they will have to produce something special to get the better of Manchester City.
We have Bet Boosters on offer as always – so Reds fans, don’t miss these specials.
