Liverpool v Manchester City Preview, Premiership, Sunday 13th April 2014

The potential title decider between Liverpool and Manchester City comes from Anfield where both teams will look to gain 3 points and a step closer to winning the Premier League title. Liverpool will see this as a must win game as Manchester City can go top with their games in hand.

Even a draw will see Brendan Rodgers side drop out of first place. Liverpool fans have been jubilant over the recent performances by their players and will really start to believe this could be their year.

Manchester City know they can make top spot their own with a win and with the return of Sergio Aguero will be a massive boost for their title chances. Both clubs have been on fine form and seem to be unstoppable when it comes to Premier League football and with neither team being involved in European football anymore they can concentrate on the biggest prize in the English game.

Liverpool could equal Manchester United’s record of title wins if they were to win the title this season and Manchester City will look to take the title back away from the red side of Manchester and back onto their own turf.

I really believe whoever manages to win the game on Sunday will be the ones who go on to be crowned champions, neither team will lie down and roll over so it will make for a very good watch for the neutral spectators.

Liverpool Team News:

Liverpool will be without centre back Daniel Agger who is suffering from a knee injury and Jose Enrique who also has a knee related injury. Other than that they have a full squad to use against Manchester City as they have no suspensions.

Manchester City Team News:

Huge news for Manchester City as they welcome back star striker Sergio Aguero. Manchester City’s only absentee is Matija Nastasic who is suffering from a knee injury. Manchester City also have no suspensions going into the game against Liverpool.

Liverpool v Manchester City Recent Form (Left to Right)

Liverpool: W W W W W

Manchester City: W W W D W

Liverpool have a slight advantage in the recent form table as they have won 5 out of 5 and Manchester City was held to a draw in one of their matches.

Both teams have been in terrific form of late and I’m sure it’ll be a very exciting game.

Liverpool v Manchester City Match Betting Odds Market

Liverpool will go into this game knowing that a win is vital if they are to secure the Premiership title and they know any little slip up could cost them. The bookmakers are offering a best price of 6/4 with Paddy Power (£50 Free Bets for New Customers) for Brendan Rogers’ side to be the ones celebrating come the full time whistle.

The Draw has a huge chance of happening in this game as both teams will not want to lose and with 3 of the last 5 games having all ended in draws the current bookmakers odd for this game to follow suit of 27/10 with Bet365 (£200 Matched Bonus Bets for New Customers) does look massive value here.

Manchester City will know that a win will more or less put them within reach of re-claiming back the league title from arch rivals Manchester United and as the odds on favourites to lift the trophy at the end of the season the bookmakers already think they will become champions and the visitors can be backed at generous looking odds of 15/8 with BetVictor (£25 Free Bets for New Customers) to steal the points on sunday afternoon.

Liverpool v Manchester City Match Predictions, Tips & First Goal Scorer Bets.

Neither team will want to lose this game as it could wave away their chances of the title. The return of Sergio Aguero will be a massive boost for the City team and the fans.

He could be the deciding factor between a win and a loss for Manchester City  and predictions for this match have been hard to make as the game could really go either way but I definitely think there will be goals, so my Banker will be Both Teams to score as the last four games played between the two sides both teams have scored.

My Saver for this match is Both Teams to Score with the Full-Time Result being a Draw as it is extremely difficult to seperate the two sides based on what they have achieved so far this season and with 3 of the last 5 games having ended 2-2 this statistics are fimly on our side.
