English Premier League
Date: Sunday, 10 November 2019
Kick-off at 16:30 UK/ 17:30 CET
It is clash of the titans in English Premier League when current leaders Liverpool host defending champions Manchester City at the Anfield on Sunday.
Liverpool sit at the top of the table with a 6 point lead over City.
The Reds are the only unbeaten team in the English Premier League after 11 match days with an impressive 10 wins and 100% win record in home games.
Manchester City dropped points three times this season, evidently beaten twice, one each at home and away.
Despite the inconsistencies, Pep’s men are top of the scoring charts with 34 goals so far as against 25 scored by the Reds.
Liverpool vs Manchester City Head-to-head (h2h)
Overall 166 games, 48 wins for Liverpool as against 15 wins for City and 20 draws.
The Reds haven’t lost a Premier League home game to Manchester City since 2003. The streak runs for 16 games, bagging 11 wins and 5 draws in the process.
The corresponding fixture at Anfield last season was a 0-0 stalemate. This happened to be the first goal-less draw between the sides since 1986. The Reds won 5 h2h games on the bounce prior to that.
Liverpool vs Manchester City Prediction
Liverpool maintained their unbeaten status in Premier League last weekend, but it didn’t come without breaking some sweat. They were trailing Aston Villa until 87th minute before Andrew Robertson scored the equalizer and Sadio Mane struck in the stoppage time to complete the comeback win.
This set a perfect foundation for Klopp’s title ambitions with the team picking an incredible 10 wins from 11 games so far. The streak includes a perfect record at Anfield as well, with the Reds winning all 5 Premier League games so far. However, they are yet to keep a clean sheet at home in all competitions this season.
Meantime, the reigning champions Manchester City find themselves 6 points behind Liverpool ahead of Sunday’s clash.
Just like their hosts, Pep’s men had to come back from a goal down at home to earn three points last weekend against a much improved Southampton on a 2-1 score-line.
To make matters worse, the Citizens are coming on the back of a 1-1 draw in their midweek Champions League fixture against Atalanta. Meantime, Liverpool kept the momentum going with a 2-1 win over Genk.
On an whole, City has been blowing hot and cold this season and already lost 2 games and drew 1, exactly half of games they dropped points in the whole of last season.
However, with no other team finding consistency this season, these are the two prime candidates for Premier League title and Sunday’s clash will have a great influence at the end of the season.
Coming back to predictions for this match, this is a match that generally promise goals, a fact that is backed up with the recent scoring record of the teams involved. It is also evident that both teams give away plenty of scoring chances to their opponents.
Thus, both teams to score and over 2.5 goals come handy for punters. And based on current form and head-to-head stats, it is fair to assess that Reds are most likely to bag at least a point from this match.
To ensure a solid return on stakes, we must combine these two picks (Liverpool/Draw Chance + Both teams to Score) for long 2.25 odds, the types of bet you can find with a bookie offering bet builder.
It also presents good value to have a shot at Over 1.5 goals in the second half with Liverpool’s last 5 games across all competitions recording the same along with City’s 4 of the last 5.

My top recommendation is “Liverpool or draw double chance with Both teams to Score” combo priced at 13/10 (2.30) odd.
The Over 1.5 goals in second half priced at (4/5) 1.80 odd offers a decent alternate.
