Liverpool v Man City betting tips: Reds bid to stay unbeaten
Preview and odds for Sunday’s Premier League clash
We look at the odds to explore potential Liverpool v Man City betting tips as the table-topping hosts bid to maintain their unbeaten record in the Premier League.
Liverpool moved to the top of the table with a 3-3 draw at Brentford last weekend, while champions City inched to within a point following their 1-0 win at Chelsea.
Sunday’s match, which takes place at Anfield, kicks off at 4.30pm and is live on Sky Sports.
Liverpool v Man City match odds
Liverpool are the only unbeaten side in the Premier League this season (W4 D2) and they have scored more goals 915) than any other team in their opening six games.
Jurgen Klopp’s side are now unbeaten in 16 league games, the longest current run without defeat in any of the top four English divisions. Despite that they are the underdogs on Sunday when they are 15/8 to beat Manchester City.
The Reds have won four of their six games by a two-goal margin or more and after beating Porto 5-1 away from home in the Champions League on Tuesday, have scored three goals or more in each of their last six games across all competitions. They are 13/10 to score two or more goals and 17/4 to score three or more against City.
City boss Pep Guardiola has lost more games against Klopp in all competitions than he has against any opposing manager in his career (eight), but after they avenged their Champions League final defeat by beating Chelsea at Stamford Bridge last weekend, he will believe his side can leapfrog the hosts at the top.
City, who come into this on the back of a midweek 2-0 Champions League defeat at Paris Saint-Germain, are 27/20 to win in the Liverpool v Man City betting tips.
Since their opening-day defeat at Tottenham, where they were woefully short-handed, they have kept their next five Premier League opponents scoreless and have not faced a shot on target in three of those outings – against Norwich, Arsenal and Chelsea.
They were surprisingly held goalless themselves at home by Southampton in a 0-0 draw and the draw is on offer at 12/5.
Very frustrating night…take what went good, correct the bad and get ready for the next one! 👊🏼🦈 pic.twitter.com/WrMC1FkpN6

Liverpool v Man City head-to-head
Manchester City won this fixture 4-1 last season, ending a run of 17 away league games without a win at Liverpool (D5 L12). The Citizens haven’t won consecutive league games at Anfield since January 1953.
City have lost just once in the last seven meetings in all competitions, however, and it is 2/5 that they either win or draw the game this time on the Double Chance market.
Both sides scored in eight of the last 12 meetings, including both clashes last season, and it is 8/15 that both find the net on Sunday.
Eight of the last 11 meetings yielded three total goals or more and the odds for that to happen again are 4/6 in the Liverpool v Man City betting tips.
Liverpool v Man City key battles
Mohamed Salah has been directly involved in six goals in his five appearances against City at Anfield in all competitions, scoring four and assisting two. City will be wary of the Egyptian’s lethal left foot and he is 8/5 to net at any stage and 9/1 to score two or more.
Likewise, keeping City star Raheem Sterling quiet has proven difficult as the England man has scored in two of this last three appearances against his old club, and is 23/10 to net at any time.
