Liverpool vs. Manchester City Preview

Liverpool

The Reds had one nasty loss at the start of the preseason, once Manchester United, their biggest enemy, rolled over them in the Asian tour, 4-0. Even though this game didn’t mean anything, losing to a big rival, even in one friendly without all the players at disposal, is a hard pill to swallow.

However, Klopp and the boys bounced back pretty well, posting two wins in which they didn’t allow a single goal. One was against Crystal Palace, 2-0, and the other was against RB Leipzig, whom they trashed 5-0. 

One of the new faces in the locker room, Darwin Nunez, was superb in that one, scoring four goals and leaving a fantastic impression. The Reds have a few new players on board, but Nunez is expected to be their top signing in the transfer window. 

Manchester City

The Citizens’ top signing had a flying start in his new team. Erling Haaland scored after only 12 minutes of play on his debut. To make it even sweeter for him, it was against Bayern Munich, his hated opponent from the German Bundesliga. 

Man City won that event, 1-0, with Haaland creating the difference. Prior to that clash, the Citizens beat Club America, 2-1, in one routine performance, which didn’t take a lot of energy from them.

From what we’ve seen over these 180 minutes, Pep Guardiola didn’t change anything in his strategy. The only difference on the pitch is that he now has Haaland, an all-around striker able to score goals from various positions and angles, which wasn’t the case with Sterling and Jesus.

Liverpool vs Manchester City Prediction

It is too early to conclude which team is in better shape or to examine potential mismatches on the field. Simply, it is too risky to make any bets regarding the winner or the full-time result. Instead, we are going with high efficiency here, and our pick will be over 2.5 goals. 

Our verdict: Over 2.5 goals
