Liverpool v Manchester City Betting Preview 10/11/2019
Premier League matches don’t come much bigger than this. We’re only 11 matches into the season, but it’s already clear that the title will end up with either Liverpool or Manchester City so their meeting at Anfield on Sunday afternoon could turn out to be pivotal.
It’s Liverpool who have the edge in the early stages of the title race. The Reds have won all but one of their matches so far and have a six-point lead over Manchester City. Still, the bookies are finding it impossible to split the two teams with both teams available at a general price of 13/8.
This really is a match that could go either way which makes it both exciting and challenging for punters but where does the best betting value lie?
Liverpool Can Utilise Their Home Advantage
Liverpool and Manchester City both had Champions League assignments in midweek. City had a much tougher time of it though. Whereas Jurgen Klopp was able to rest some of his most important players for the 2-1 home win over Genk, Guardiola played a very strong side for the match against Atalanta at San Siro.
Despite that strong side, City had a tough night. The lost goalkeeper, Ederson, through injury and his replacement, Claudio Bravo, was sent off in an eventful 1-1 draw. City are still in a strong position in the group but their chances of beating Liverpool will be hampered if their number one goalkeeper does not recover in time to play at Anfield.
Even with Ederson, it’s going to be tough for Man City. As the top team in England at the moment and the current European champions, Liverpool are one of the best teams in the world at the moment. In front of an Anfield crowd that is only growing in confidence about this team, Liverpool must surely represent good value at 17/10 with SportNation.
Expect an Entertaining Match
These current Liverpool and Manchester City teams are some of the most exciting that we’ve seen in the history of the Premier League. They each have the quality to score create and take chances in a heartbeat which has neutrals hopeful of a very entertaining contest.
Those hopes are even higher given the defensive issues that they’ve gone through recently. Liverpool have not kept a clean sheet in any of their last eight matches in all competitions whilst Man City are dealing with injuries to key defenders.
Matches of this importance between sides battling it out for the title can sometimes be a little underwhelming. There’s a real chance that Klopp and Guardiola view attack as the best form of defence so a bet on over 3.5 goals may well pay out at 33/20 with 888Sport.
When it comes to backing a particular player to score on Saturday, perhaps the best value is represented by the 5/1 that Betway are quoting on Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain scoring any time. He’s getting back to his best following the horrible knee injury that derailed his career, is back in the England squad and could well get a starting berth so is a good bet to score.
