Expect Goals When Liverpool-City Meet

Phillippe Coutinho Liverpool Premier League

Life is filled with uncertainty, but one thing that is certain, if history is any indication, is that there will be goals scored when Liverpool and Manchester City square off in the Barclays Premier League. The two Premier League giants meet at Anfield in a marquee matchup Wednesday - just three days after City defeated Liverpool in the Capital One Cup Sunday.

Shark Bites
  • Liverpool is unbeaten in the last 12 Premier League meetings versus Man City at Anfield (8 W, 4 D).
  • Manchester City MF Yaya Toure is doubtful after pikcing up a knock in the final on Sunday.
  • Manchester City defeated Liverpool on penalties in the Capital One Cup final on Sunday.

At online shop Bet365, Liverpool is +180 in moneyline markets while visiting Manchester City is presently +170 and the Draw +240. As far as the total is concerned, OVER 2.5 goals is priced at -118 and UNDER 2.5 goals is being offered at -105.

Liverpool-Manchester City contests have traditionally been a treasure trove for OVER bettors as 10 of the previous 11 Premier League clashes have gone OVER 2.5 goals scored. Included is the 4-1 Liverpool win in the reverse fixture back on November 21.

Manchester City enters Wednesday’s action fourth in the table on 47 points while Liverpool sits 11th with 38 points. The Citizens have lost two-straight games heading into Wednesday’s contest and many are dismissing them as a title contender. They are 10 points back of league-leaders Leicester but have two games in hand including Wednesday’s date with the Reds.

Liverpool has a Herculean task if they wish to reach European positions in the table, but it is not out of the realm of possibility. A win Wednesday would put them up to seventh place as they would leapfrog Southampton, who lost to Bournemouth by a 2-0 scoreline Tuesday.

Considering City still has an outside shot of winning the league and Liverpool has a puncher’s chance of getting to Europe, there is a lot on the line here. Both teams will be looking for goals so we could see another high-scoring affair Wednesday.
