Manchester City vs Liverpool Match Preview

English football’s two best teams serve up a pre-season treat as they try to strike a psychological blow ahead of what is expected to be another two-horse race for the Premier League title.

It’s the English champions against the European champions, with Liverpool only denied both of those statuses by a one-point margin last term – or, put another way, the difference made by Leroy Sane’s winner for Manchester City against the Reds at the Etihad in early January.

These clubs are expected by the bookmakers to again be miles ahead of the rest this season after finishing 25 points clear last time around – the Premier League outright odds with Unibet are 1/2 Manchester City, 11/4 Liverpool and 18/1 bar, namely Tottenham.

Neither has had the perfect build-up to the new campaign with City’s trip to China being difficult for various reasons, most of them off the pitch from travelling and PR perspectives, while they missed out on winning the Premier League Asia Trophy on penalties to Wolves.

Liverpool went to the United States, where they did not win a match, and also lost 3-0 to Napoli in Edinburgh, although they did taste victory again 3-1 against Lyon in Geneva on Wednesday with Roberto Firmino back and among the goals.

Lifting this trophy will be the least of these clubs’ priorities silverware-wise this season and with City having only a 50% success rate in the Community Shield since their Abu Dhabi takeover, the value may well be with Jurgen Klopp’s men to add it to the Champions League trophy in the Anfield cabinet – possibly after a penalty shootout.
