Stadium: Anfield

TV: Sky Sports

Liverpool enjoyed a welcome boost with Wednesday’s big win over Rangers and should now be ready to challenge Manchester City at Anfield.

The Reds have done well in this match-up of late, drawing twice in the Premier League last term and winning FA Cup and Community Shield contests.

We feel Evens for Jurgen Klopp’s team to avoid defeat on home turf is worth support in our first Liverpool vs Man City prediction.

Liverpool Odds

Much has been made of Liverpool being below par so far this season and they will be worried by a 13-point gap to City in the table.

However, they have only lost twice in that competition, going down by the odd goal away to Manchester United and leaders Arsenal.

There was also a 4-1 drubbing by Napoli in Italy but the Reds have since won three straight Champions League ties.

Their 7-1 romp versus Rangers at Ibrox featured an incredible second-half performance, with six goals coming after the interval.

Roberto Firmino continued his good run of form with a Glasgow double, while Darwin Nunez and Harvey Elliott also hit the target.

Substitute Mohamed Salah’s quickfire hat-trick, struck between 75 and 81 minutes, stole the show, though.

“It is a night where things worked for us,” commented Klopp. “It has changed the mood completely. That is good.

“We all know who we welcome on Sunday. It’s a different game, we know that, but it’s better to go into it with this feeling than any other.”

Although there is always so much at stake, games between these two teams are usually entertaining, with the last five all producing more than three goals.

Looking at the 11/10 for that trend to continue.

Last Liverpool line-up: Alisson, Gomez, Van Dijk, Konate, Tsimikas, Fabinho, Henderson, Elliott, Carvalho, Firmino, Nunez.

Andy Robertson (knee) is expected to start for Liverpool. Curtis Jones (shin) could be included in the squad for the first time since the Community Shield at the beginning of August.

Manchester City Odds

City will obviously provide stiff opposition and are unbeaten in 13 games since losing 3-1 to Liverpool in the Community Shield.

The Blues have won their last three Premier League matches, scoring 13 goals in the process, and are just a point off the summit.

However, there have been a couple of patchy away draws this term; 3-3 at Newcastle and 1-1 at Aston Villa.

Tuesday’s goalless stalemate in Copenhagen didn’t stop City from qualifying for the knockout stage of the Champions League.

That was a more tiring contest than expected following the first-half dismissal of Sergio Gomez, though.

Erling Haaland was rested at Parken Stadium and will be keen to make an impression on this huge stage.

But City have had injury issues at the back and being without the pace of Kyle Walker is always a worry in big games.

Kevin De Bruyne is anticipating another tough test at Anfield, stating: “I expect them to be the best Liverpool possible.

“Obviously, they’ve lost some points but they are still Liverpool and I expect them to be good, that’s the only way I see it.”

For those wanting a more significant pay-out, 11/1 for a third straight 2-2 draw between these sides in the Premier League is our final Liverpool vs Man City prediction.

Last Man City line-up: Ederson, Cancelo, Laporte, Akanji, Gundogan, Grealish, Rodri, De Bruyne, Gomez, Alvarez, Mahrez.

England trio John Stones (hamstring), Walker (abdominal) and Kalvin Phillips (shoulder) remain out.
