Manchester City vs Liverpool
English Premier League
Date: Sunday, 8 November 2020
Kick-off at 16:30 UK/ 17:30 CET
Venue: Etihad Stadium.
These two teams have been the best in England for the past few years, and are locked in a race for the title this season as well. As of now, the Reds are at the top of the table, while the Citizens are trailing five points behind.
However, it needs to be noted that Pep Guardiola’s men have a game in hand. Likely, this match-up could set the tone for the race for the EPL crown in the first phase of the season. The victor this weekend will surely have the momentum going forward.
As such, count on both teams to give their 100% on the pitch.
Going on, either of these squads are known for their spectacular offense, and majority of h2h encounters have had goals in plenty.
Considering that, expect a high-scoring thriller this Sunday at the Etihad Stadium.
Manchester City vs Liverpool: Head-to-head (h2h)
- The last time these two met on the pitch, the Citizens registered a 4-0 win.
- Nine of the former ten clashes had three or more goals.

Manchester City vs Liverpool: Prediction
Guardiola’s men recorded a 0-1 win on the road the last match-day, against Sheffield United. In the meantime, the Reds posted a 2-1 win at home the past game week, against West Ham.
Going on, the Citizens had won five of their former six overall matches, and they had scored three or more goals in three of their last five games. At home, they had won 12 of their preceding 14 appearances, and had scored two or more goals in 17 of their former 20 fixtures here.
On the other hand, their opposite number are on a five-game winning run, and had scored two or more goals in 15 of their previous 18 overall fixtures. Do also note that they had scored two or more goals in seven of their past nine away fixtures.
Suffice it to say that either squad has been scoring goals for fun the past several months, and the same has been the case in h2h encounters as well.
Likely, expect a fierce encounter this weekend at the Etihad, and staying true to the playing style of these teams – goals in plenty as well.
