Liverpool remain the only unbeaten side in the division with four victories and two draws from their opening six. They were involved in a six-goal thriller as they drew 3-3 with Brentford last weekend while on Tuesday night they hammered Porto 5-1. At Anfield, the Reds are unbeaten in their last seven league games winning five of these.
Man City have bounced back from an opening day loss to win four and draw one of their last five league games. Their latest league game saw them defeat Chelsea 1-0 last weekend while in midweek they suffered a 2-0 defeat to PSG. Away from the Etihad, the Manchester outfit have won their last two and both by the same 1-0 scoreline.
Liverpool vs Man City: Match Stats
Given how tight games are between the top four sides it is a surprise to see under 2.5 goals the outsider here. The last three Premier League games involving Man City have produced just two goals. Liverpool have been scoring but this is more likely to resemble their game with Chelsea where they struggled to breakdown an elite attack. Going under 2.5 goals then looks the best play.
Such is the strength of Man City in defence (five successive clean sheets) that it is rare to be able to get value on them keeping a clean sheet but the price here looks worth backing. City have such a dominant system that they restrict opponents chances while Liverpool showed against Chelsea how they struggle to break down a top-tier well drilled defence.
