Manchester City – Liverpool
It’s time for the biggest game in the Premier League since the beginning of the season. The champion Manchester City hosts the leader Liverpool at the Etihad on Thursday night. In a match which can give us a lot of answers about the title race in England. Let’s examine this clash between these two terrific teams in our vip soccer bets.
Until recently Manchester City were leading the standings in England, but everything changed because of Pep Guardiola’s team suffering a serious dip in form. The Cityzens suffered three defeats in their last five matches, which is unusual for them, to say at least. But it happened and City conceded losses against Chelsea, Crystal Palace and Leicester City.
This is the reason why right now Man City are third in the standings with 47 points, trailing on 7 points behind the leader Liverpool. For Guardiola’s side this game is an opportunity to reduce the gap. But if Liverpool clinches the win and increase the gap on 10 points, for City it’s going to be very difficult to catch up.
In their previous fixture Manchester City managed to bounce back, beating Southampton at the St. Mary’s. David Silva opened the score for City, while an own goal from Ward-Prowse and a third one from Sergio Aguero won the game for the visitors.
Liverpool on the other hand are just flawless recently. The Reds have won all of their last five games in the league. At this moment Jurgen Klopp’s boys are the only unbeaten team in the English league. They have a record of 17 wins and 3 draws in the matches played so far.
In their last game Liverpool showed their strenght, crushing Arsenal with 5-1 at home at the Anfield. The Brazilian international Roberto Firmino scored a hattrick for the Reds, while Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah also added goals for the home side.
These are our vip soccer bets for the Premier League fixture between Manchester City and Liverpool. Good luck!
