The Line: -- Over/Under:
In the English Premier League, Liverpool are set to host Manchester City at Anfield. These are the two top teams in England and this match is expected to be vital in deciding who will win the Premier League title.
Manchester City enter this match following a Champions League tie where they only managed a 1-1 draw. It was an impressive display by Manchester City as they controlled most of the possession and had many scoring chances. While the win was not accomplished, Manchester City will be satisfied with the result as the were focussing their energy on this match. This is a big game for Manchester City as they must win or Liverpool may run away with the title. Looking at Manchester City, the team is looking confident and players are in good form so they will be backing their ability to win this match.
On the other side of the coin, Liverpool have been winning but they have not been playing well. In their previous Premier League fixture, Liverpool defeated Aston Villa but the team looked poor and they were very lucky to get all 3 points from the game. It has been an outstanding season for Liverpool as they remain unbeaten in the Premier League. That being said, Liverpool must play their best in this match if they wish to get a result.
Manchester City and Liverpool last played each other in the Community Shield. It was a close match that Manchester City won on penalties.
Taking everything into consideration, I am going to pick Manchester City to win this match. While Liverpool are at home and leading the league, the Reds have not been impressive in recent weeks and the team looks to be lacking intensity. I see Manchester City playing better football and being strong enough to win this match and close the gap at the top of the table.
