Week 4 of the Premier League season gets underway with Manchester City hosting Liverpool in whats set to be a blockbuster game. Manchester City will go into the game as clear favourites in head to head betting and should be hard to beat on their home turf.
When: Saturday, September 9, 9.30pm (AEST)
Where: Etihad Stadium
This should be an absolutely cracking game.
Two teams that have started the season well and I expect a very attacking, entertaining game here.
Pep has been disappointed in his team not taking their chances and will be expecting to be better in front of goal.
Raheem Stirling will look to float around the edges and is very dangerous when he has space.
He’s lightning quick with great feet and he’ll be looking at getting on the ball in areas where he can get at Liverpool’s defence.
If he manages to do this, then he can cause some big problems for his former team.
Liverpool are coming off the back of a convincing win over Arsenal where all the attacking players got on the scoresheet, so they’ll all be ready and thinking they can score.
Sadio Mane, Mohamed Salah, Roberto Firmino and Daniel Sturridge are all very dangerous on their day and City will need to bring their A game to keep them quiet.
KEY BATTLE: David Silva v Jordan Henderson
Who can be the cleverer of the two here will be crucial in getting an advantage.
Silva takes up some fantastic positions and has the final pass to unlock a back four.
At a push, I’ll go with him to get on top of Henderson.
I expect to see goals in this one and think City can have a better day in front of goals.
They’re still creating plenty of opportunities and it’s up to Aguero and co to start taking their chances.
City to win.
