Liverpool vs Manchester City Highlights Premier League 2017-18 Match

Liverpool are set to host Manchester City in the premier league game this weekend on Sunday, 14th January 2018 at Anfield Stadium in what should be a cracking game of football. Liverpool lost their star man Coutinho while City are about to sign Arsenal’s best player in Alexis Sanchez which goes to show where these two teams are headed. Still Liverpool usually come up with the goods against City at Anfield and I expect them to give City a real game on Sunday evening.

Match Preview & Team News: Pep Guardiola’s City were installed as out and out favourites going into the 2017-18 season and they have not disappointed so far having been unbeaten, going on a 16 game winning streak, beating all the other top 6 teams in what has been a absolute superb first half of the season. They already look the best team in England and Guardiola is about to add Alexis Sanchez to Manchester City making them even more difficult to beat.

Both sides are pretty good upfront and both of these teams have fixed their issues in defense and now looks much more balanced as we head to the bussiness end of the season. Liverpool added Van Dijk who will start alongside Matip in defense but Liverpool do have to improvise now as they will be without Coutinho. Last season Liverpool completed the double over City winning both matches 1-0 and we can expect another tight game between these two quality attacking sides.

Last time these two meet was back in September 2017 when Manchester City ran riot against 10 men Liverpool winning 5-0 at Etihad Stadium. That result kick started City’s incredible 16 game winning streak and Liverpool will be hoping to be the first team in the league to beat City this season.

Manchester City 5-0 Liverpool – September 2017
[ Premier League 2017-18 Match ]
25′ 1 – 0 Sergio Aguero rounded off the keeper to finish a brilliant move as City go ahead 1-0 against Liverpool at Etihad Stadium.
37′ [ Red Card ] Sadio Mane got a controversial red card after he collided with City keeper Ederson and referee sent him off for boot on Ederson’s head.
45′ 2 – 0 Gabriel Jesus made it 2-0 just before the break to complete City’s first half dominance.

Liverpool on the other hand played with full strength team against Augsburg and a Daniel Sturridge continue to play 60 odd minutes after recovering from series of injuries which kept him out for best part of last 1 year. He is likely to start upfront with Coutinho and Firmino playing on either flanks. Jordan Henderson, Emre Can and James Milner should start in midfield.

This is how I expect both teams to lineup in the premier league game on Wednesday night


Recent Form & Predictions: If City were to win their game this weekend they will go 18 points clear at top for atleast a day as United play on Monday. However a defeat for City and with United, Chelsea and Liverpool winning will make the equation alot more interesting at the top of the table. I am going with a home win for Liverpool in this one and just for a sake of some sort of title race lets hope it happens.
