Manchester city’s previous game
Manchester City, who won their previous game, will hope for a similar result following a 1-0 Champions League victory against Atlético Madrid.
In that game, Manchester City managed 71% possession and 15 shots on goal with 2 of them on target. The scorer for Manchester City was Kevin De Bruyne (70'). On the other side, Atlético de Madrid had 0 attempts on goal with 0 of them on target.
Their latest results highlight the fact that things are going according to plan in the Manchester City defence. Manchester City have given the opposition little, seeing the tally of goals that have flown into the back of their net during their last 6 outings standing at 2.
Ahead of this clash, Manchester City haven't been beaten in the league by Liverpool in their previous 4 games.
Lipool’s previous game
Liverpool will come into the match following on from a 1-3 Champions League win as they beat Benfica in their last fixture.
In that match, Liverpool managed 65% possession and 17 shots at goal with 8 of them on target. For Liverpool, goals were scored by Ibrahima Konaté (17'), Sadio Mané (34') and Luis Díaz (87'). Benfica got 9 attempts at goal with 3 of them on target. Darwin Núñez (49') scored for Benfica.
A sequence of dependable showings by the Liverpool defensive players has resulted in the number of goals they’ve conceded amounting to 2 from their last 6 clashes combined. Over that same period, their forwards have scored 10. That kind of pattern might not be sustained into this next game, though.
Head to head
A look at their prior head-to-head clashes going back to 04/08/2019 shows that Manchester City have won 2 of these games & Liverpool 1, with the number of drawn matches being 3.
An aggregate of 21 goals were produced between them in these games, with 13 from The Citizens and 8 being from The Reds. The average number of goals per game works out to 3.5.
We’re of the opinion that Liverpool have it within them to find the net against this Manchester City lineup, although that might not quite be as many as they’ll concede.
We’re tipping a narrow 2-1 victory for Manchester City after 90 minutes. Should be a good one.
