With both teams packed with attacking talent, Al Hain-Cole thinks the 25-year-old offers good value to get on the scoresheet against Guardiola's men

Having put four past Arsenal in their last game, Liverpool’s new-look frontline will be hoping for more joy in front of goal when they take on Manchester City at the Etihad Stadium on Saturday.

Roberto Firmino, Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah were each on the scoresheet in a devastating attacking performance in North London, taking their tallies for the season to three apiece already.

With seven goals to his name in the last nine league appearances, Mane seems to offer the best value at 6/1 (7.00) with Genting to open the scoring for Jurgen Klopp’s men, or at least 13/8 (2.63) to strike anytime.


Having scored his first ever goal for the Reds against this opposition, Firmino is also on offer at 13/8 (2.63) to get on the scoresheet once again, while Salah can be backed at a slightly longer 9/5 (2.80).

However, it is not just the visitors who are blessed with an embarrassment of riches in attack, with Pep Guardiola facing a selection headache as he picks his own frontline.

After hitting the net in each of his five previous games against Liverpool at the Etihad Stadium, Sergio Aguero is the 3/1 (4.00) favourite to break the deadlock once again, or 3/4 (1.75) to score anytime.


However, the Argentina striker is not even a guaranteed starter thanks to the form of Gabriel Jesus, who has scored eight goals and made four assists in his 11 Premier League starts.

Having opened his account for the season in the last game at Bournemouth, the 20-year-old is priced at 4/5 (1.80) to make it two in a row in this clash.

With Raheem Sterling suspended having been sent off after scoring his second goal of the season in that win at the Vitality Stadium, Leroy Sane is on offer at 9/5 (2.80) to take advantage by bolstering his own first-team credentials with a first goal of the campaign.
