Liverpool v Man City betting preview

Liverpool have already endured a rollercoaster January in terms of off-field activities, with star man Philippe Coutinho finally leaving to Barcelona for a Premier League record fee, but Virgil van Dijk arriving from Southampton to bolster their leaky defence. On the pitch, the Reds have picked up two wins from their first two games of the year, with the last one being a confidence boosting derby day victory over rivals Everton in the FA Cup, with van Dijk bagging the winner on his debut.

That victory means that Jurgen Klopp's side have now gone unbeaten in seventeen matches in all competitions and although their chances of winning the title this time around seem minimal given Manchester City's dominance, they're still in the Champions League and they're expected to earn another top four finish this season as well. Can they be the side to finally end this incredible beaten run of City's by taking all three points on Sunday afternoon at 11/5 with Marathonbet.

Manchester City have been simply phenomenal in the Premier League this season and already have one hand on the trophy given that they're yet to be beaten in the competition so far this season and now sit 15 points clear with 22 games gone. In fact, the Citizens have won 20 of those matches, only dropping points in two surprise draws at the hands of Everton and Crystal Palace, so it's no surprise that some bookmakers have already paid out on them winning the title this term.

With an unprecedented quadruple still on the cards for the Citizens, Pep Guardiola will be keen to ensure his side don't take their foot off the gas, even though they face potentially their toughest league match so far this season at Anfield on Sunday. Having beaten the Reds 5-0 at home however and having already secured away wins over the likes of Manchester United and Chelsea, they're still favourites to take all three points from the Super Sunday clash at 23/20 with Coral.

We're anticipating goals in this game. Both sides have been among the best in the Premier League so far this season, but both sides have been far stronger going forward than they have in defence. In 22 games, the Reds have racked up no fewer than 50 goals already, with City managing an even more impressive 64, making these two sides the best attacking sides in England right now. Can they rack up more goals and ensure our over 3.5 bet at 11/8 with William Hill comes in?

Raheem Sterling will be looking to silence the boo-boys on his return to Anfield. The former Liverpool man came in for criticism for the manner in which he left Merseyside for Manchester City, but he's developed excellently under the guidance of Pep Guardiola this season and has been in terrific form in front of goal, racking up no fewer than 14 goals in just 20 appearances so far. Will he bite the hand that once fed him by bagging his 15th EPL strike of the campaign at 11/8 with William Hill.

Recommended bets:
Over 3.5 goals @ 11/8 with William Hill
Raheem Sterling to score at any time @ 2/1 with Paddy Power
