The best game of the Boxing day schedule see's us travel to Manchester to the Ethiad stadium where Manchester City will look to beat league leading Liverpool. The sky blues have been in great form of late and come into this game on a five game winning streak. Manchester City are of course missing striker and talisman Sergio Aguero which to most teams would be a completely devestating but such is the strength in depth at City they shold be able to cope. Negredo, Dzeko and Jovetic will provide the talent up front but with a wealth of ability in midfield Nasri, Silva, Milner, Toure and Navas there is loads of talent in this Manchester City squad and I am certain they will definitely be up for this game with Liverpool.
Its an interesting fixture for Liverpool, they travel to Manchester to take on the Champions from two years ago and Liverpool are top of the table at Christmas for the first time in a long long time. Luis Suarez has come back to the team on fire, he ha netted nineteen goals already this season a phenomenal amount considering he has only played eleven games. The Urugayian is in scintilating form and its going to be a case of can Manchester City stop him, something no one has been able to do so far this year. Sterling, lucas, Coutinho will be there to provide the through passe but Liverpool are missing Daniel Sturridge and Stephen Gerrard two of their best players. This game will also be the first for Kolo Toure since moving from Manchester City to Liverpool in the summer.
Might be a tough game to call here as regards who wins but I am going big on the overs in this one. Manchester City have been over in seven of their eight home games this year, Liverpool have gone over in six of the eight away games this year. I would even go so far as to take the over 3.5 goals as i see this one being a goalfest with Suarez , Dzeko, Negredo and Jovetic. I think this is going to be a tough one for defences. Also I have my first ten unit play of the year in the Premium and on the app for this game. Follow me on twitter @antonpippo
