Why Manchester City will beat Liverpool
Prior to Saturday’s match playing out, a number of stats have come to light highlighting why Man City are favourites for the game:
- Liverpool have won just one of their past 14 Premier League away games against Manchester City (D5 L8) - and that was a 4-1 victory in Jurgen Klopp’s first visit to Etihad Stadium in November 2015.
- Pep Guardiola’s City have won their past 23 home games and victory on Saturday would equal that record for an English top-flight club, currently held by Sunderland between December 1890 and April 1892.
- Guardiola and Klopp have faced each other more than they’ve faced any other manager. Pep’s 10 victories is the most by any manager against Klopp.
- Erling Haaland has scored 49 goals in 47 Premier League matches for City. A goal on Saturday would mean smashing the record for fastest to 50 (held by Andrew Cole - 65 games).
Back Erling Haaland to score anytime vs Liverpool at 8/11 with bet365.
