thumbnail Hello,

The two sides clash in what promises to be an exciting affair and our readers have tipped Manuel Pellegrini's men to emerge victorious at home

It's the big clash this week: it's Manchester City versus Liverpool, with the latter facing a big task to hold on to their position at the top of the Premier League.

The Reds spent Christmas perched prettily above the rest after Arsenal and Chelsea could only draw with each other, fueling belief that they can snag a first-ever Premier League title this season.

But City can overhaul them on points and potentially be top of the table if they win this match, being only two points behind in third.

And Manuel Pellegrini's men will be in confident mood, having won all eight home games at the Etihad Stadium this season. That translates to the best home record in the league and they have posted some impressive results, notably thumping Norwich 7-0, sweeping Tottenham aside 6-0 and thrashing Arsenal 6-3.

It is probably with their imperious home record in mind that Goal Singapore readers have tipped City to edge Liverpool, with 39.6% predicting that they will beat Brendan Rodgers's men. A further 31.5% have gone for a draw, while the remaining 28.8% are the minority in believing the away side can come away with all three points.

City will take on Liverpool at 1.30am, Singapore time on Friday morning and you can follow all the action LIVE here!
