Manchester City v Liverpool betting preview
The title race might be all but over but the battle to get into the Premier League top four is red hot right now with both Manchester City and Liverpool well in the mix.
These sides will clash this Sunday with the former currently one point ahead of the latter and with a game in hand.
Pep Guardiola’s Sky Blues will be smarting from their midweek Champions League exit but can they take out their frustrations on Jurgen Klopp’s visitors?
Betting site Ladbrokes make Man City the 20/21 (1.95) favourites to see off their rivals with Liverpool the 11/4 (3.75) outsiders and the draw priced at 13/5 (3.60).
And if you’re looking to turn a profit then it could pay to side with the team from Anfield.
Liverpool have won their last four in the league against City, including last season’s 4-1 hammering at the Etihad Stadium.
But it’s their most recent form that should concern the hosts.
Klopp’s outfit have found their groove again, winning three of their last four, with victories over Tottenham Hotspur and Arsenal featuring in that sequence.
City have lost just once in their last 16 Premier League home games though so the 17/20 (1.85) for Liverpool/Draw in the Double Chance market is also worth considering as a value saver.
Elsewhere, Ladbrokes’ top gambling site is offering a big 12/1 (13.0) about the in-form Georginio Wijnaldum scoring first, much like he did in his side’s 1-0 victory in the reverse fixture.
For the hosts, Sergio Aguero is 9/10 (1.90) to score at any time with Leroy Sane available at bigger odds of 2/1 (3.0) in the same market.
Meanwhile, it’s 12/1 (13.0) for a repeat of that 1-0 scoreline in Liverpool’s favour although if you fancy more goalmouth action then the 6/4 (2.50) for 4+ goals is appealing.
