Liverpool can take advantage of shell-shocked Manchester City

Posted March 17, 2017

Manchester City host Liverpool on Sunday as the battle continues for places in the top four of the Premier League.

City are unbeaten in six Premier League games, but have lost five of their last six top-flight fixtures against Liverpool.

The former Manchester City man goes back to his old club on Super Sunday, live on Sky Sports 1, having won two titles there between 2010 and 2015.

"It's two completely different teams and styles of play, but two fantastic teams".

What time does the Man City - Liverpool game start?

Dejan Lovren worked on his sharpness after a knee injury by undertaking 75 minutes for Liverpool's U23s on Monday, while Roberto Firmino has been running outside again.

If Coutinho rediscovers his best form this weekend, then Liverpool could be worth a bet and Jurgen Klopp's men can be snapped up at 14/5 with bet365.

Midfielder James Milner insists that as a team the current Liverpool side are up there with the best he has been involved with.

Both teams have the desire to dominate the ball and assert themselves on proceedings, with the Reds proving how effective they can be out of possession and on the break against City's expansive play in the 4-1 victory at the Etihad last season. "They've got a lot of top, top players", he said. In Premier League matches against big-six teams, Pep Guardiola's side have yet to keep a clean sheet. The Baggies have won six of their last eight at home, scoring 14 goals in the process, yet still the bookmakers see fit to underestimate them.

The Gunners have lost three out of their last four league matches and as a outcome have now slipped out of the top four.

West Brom are always hard to beat at home.

Bournemouth have not kept a clean sheet in nine matches - going back to the 3-0 win at Swansea on December 31 that immediately preceded Clement's appointment - and their leaky defence may keep them anxious about relegation for several more weeks.
