Manchester City vs Liverpool: Prediction
Liverpool have looked a little more vulnerable than their streak of winning results might suggest over the past month, and apart from their mammoth 5-0 win at Atalanta in mid-week, the Merseysiders have had shaky periods in close to every other game.
Manchester City kept four clean sheets on their way to winning five of their last six fixtures, and with the return to fitness of Gabriel Jesus adding more punch to their options at the business end, we think the Citizens have the right combination to succeed on Sunday.
