So Liverpool will clash once again against Manchester City in what should be a great Premier League match. Both teams are big names in world football and some of the best players in the world will be on the pitch. This game is a big event and for both teams there is a lot of pressure on them since a slip up here will have huge effects going forward as we head into the business end of the season.
Liverpool will be at home for this match and after losing the Capital One Cup final on the weekend to City, they will be desperate for some revenge. On the previous outing Liverpool were clearly the weaker side and they deserved to lose so I expect some changes from Klopp in this game.
Manchester City on the other side of the coin will be feeling red hot and they will have sky high confidence as they look to this game. This team managed to win the Capital One Cup so that is something of a relief to them since a club with such large investments expects trophies. They are off the mark this season in that regard and they will know if they keep winning games in the Premier League, then they might just give Leicester and Tottenham a run for their money.
With that all in mind, I think that Manchester City will win away from home here. They just beat Liverpool and I think that will influence this result again so that is my prediction. I think that we can also bet on this since the away side is getting a good price and we get a win here more than 1 in 3 times so it is profitable. This is not the safest bet of the round but there is value in it so I will go for it.
