Liverpool vs Manchester City Prediction
Manchester City warmed up for their title test at Anfield by winning their ninth straight Premier League assignment in midweek, with a routine 2-0 triumph at Burnley.
Klopp’s men lost 0-1 at home the last match-day, against Brighton. In the meantime, Guardiola’s men won 0-2 on the road the past game week, against Burnley.
For all of their success in recent years, Anfield remains a bogey ground for Man City, who have come away from the red half of Merseyside with victory just once in their last 29 league visits.
Going on, the Reds were winless in seven of their last ten overall matches, and they have a total of one clean sheet from their former eight games.
That solitary triumph came all the way back in May 2003, 17 games ago, and in this fixture as a whole the team playing away has come out on top just once in the last 24 Premier League meetings.
