Although both teams are hailed for their attacking play, Al Hain-Cole thinks there is value in backing against too much goalmouth action at Anfield

Manchester City will face one of the biggest threats to their unbeaten Premier League season when they travel to Anfield to take on Liverpool on Sunday afternoon.

The Citizens have won 20 and lost none of their 22 matches so far this season, but are without a win in 14 league visits to this ground.

Match Odds

However, having run out comprehensive 5-0 winners in the reverse fixture back in September after Sadio Mane's early red card, they are 5/4 (2.25) favourites with dabblebet to secure a first victory at Anfield since May 2003.

Jurgen Klopp's men have actually gone 17 matches without defeat themselves, and are on offer at 21/10 (3.10) to become the first team to collect maximum points against the runaway leaders since Chelsea last April.

Just one of the last nine league meetings between these sides has resulted in a draw, but you can get odds of 13/5 (3.60) on them cancelling each other out in this one.

Team News

As well as the departed Philippe Coutinho, the Reds will be without the injured Alberto Moreno and Jordan Henderson, although Mohamed Salah and Daniel Sturridge have resumed full training.

Pep Guardiola is still missing Vincent Kompany and Gabriel Jesus through injury, while David Silva may miss out once again due to personal reasons.

Value in opposing goals

Although Coutinho's absence must surely take its toll on their attacking threat, the hosts have also boosted their backline this transfer window with the record signing of Virgil van Dijk.

In fact, Klopp's men have actually been fairly strong in defence at home recently, keeping nine clean sheets and conceding only four goals in the last 13 league matches in front of their own fans.

Considering City have conceded just twice in their last six league games themselves, it seems like this clash may not prove the free-scoring affair most are expecting.

Tips and Predictions

With that in mind, odds of 9/5 (2.80) could represent a sound investment on no more than one side finding the net for the fourth time in five encounters between the teams.
