Manchester City vs Liverpool Preview
Manchester City met Liverpool in a key clash for the Premier League title. “Citizens” will quickly want to forget the month of December after they recorded three losses in the seven games they played in that period. Over the weekend, Pep Guardiola’s players defeated Southampton 3-1 after three goals in the first half by David Silva, Raheem Sterling and Sergio Aguero. That’s the difference with Liverpool, but there are no more space mistakes for Pep Guardiola’s team.
So far, no team that has been on the Premier League with seven points ahead of the second of New Year has not missed the trophy at the end of the season. Merseyside ended in 2018, with a great 5: 1 victory over Arsenal, and Roberto Firmino turned into a hero for Liverpool, making hat-trick.

Manchester City vs Liverpool Prediction
Manchester City have defense problems and failed to keep clean sheets in the last ten Premier League matches. Ukrainian midfielder Oleksandr Zinchenko is forced to play as a left defender and it is his mistake to cost the Citizens goal against Southampton. At the same time Liverpool is in great form and have strong winger players. We expect that Jurgen Klopp, like the first match between the two teams, will have the center, but will require the attack from the wing.
This season, much of the match between the top 6 teams ended with a few hits, but we think the fight on Thursday will be an different. Both teams have great attackers who can punish each opponent’s mistake. Man City have to chase a win to keep Jurgen Klopp’s team up and keep chances for the title in England. Our prediction for Manchester City – Liverpool is both teams to score goals and over 2.5 goals.
