Anfield Hoodoo Haunts Manchester City In Top-Of-Table Clash Against Liverpool

This season, though, Salah has struggled to kick on from his debut campaign heroics, finding the back of the net thrice in seven league games, amid some forgettable performances. Our live coverage lets you follow all the key moments as they happen.

"My respect for Pep Guardiola couldn't be bigger, he is the world's best manager and that makes it so hard, but so exciting to play his teams". Find out by following our live matchcast.

Widely considered as the two best teams in England, the two north-west clubs are locked together at the top of the Premier League going into the match at Anfield with the victor set to go into the global break in pole position for the title race.

"Plenty believe Liverpool could actually score a convincing win at Anfield and the home side to win 2-0 has proved popular with punters and we've boosted that from 12/1 to 16/1".

But come Sunday, they can count on the intangibles of Anfield on top of the talent of a bolstered squad and inspirational manager to keep City waiting for a win there and strike first blood in the title race.

"What he has been doing since he started his career as a manager, I never heard of something similar", Klopp said.

The two sides faced off four times last season, and Liverpool won three of those games, so they will be in confident mood ahead of the tie. In the last 15 minutes they had two big chances and scored a goal. The midfield battle will be key once again, and unlike last time, Liverpool will not have the pace and drive of Oxlade-Chamberlain to trouble City, which is why Keita becomes all the more critical against Man City. "After none of these games you go into the dressing room and think, "Now we've got it, now we know how to beat Manchester City"," insisted Klopp.

"Against Napoli the first 15 minutes was an open game with better opportunities for us". The Reds registered three wins over the Citizens during the 2017/18 season.

Goals seem to be on the agenda when these two meet and while both teams to score looks a good option, I don't see much value in the price at around [1.56] despite thinking it may well occur, I think I would prefer to look elsewhere for a bet.
