After failing to have a single shot on target in a lacklustre Champions League performance against Napoli, Liverpool will be hoping their famous front three can rediscover top form when Manchester City visit Anfield on Sunday.

Mohamed Salah has come in for particular criticism as he struggles to replicate the prolific performances of his record-breaking debut campaign, but is still bet365’s 15/4 (4.75) favourite to open the scoring in this crucial clash.

The Egypt international was on target in three of the four encounters between the teams last season, and is priced at Evens (2.00) to end his three-match goal drought by scoring against them for the fourth game in a row.

Roberto Firmino has now gone four games without a goal, but can be backed at 15/8 (2.88) to hit the net for his fifth match in 10 against the Citizens.

Meanwhile, Sadio Mane has not scored in six fixtures since opening the season with four goals in the first four, but is available at 15/8 (2.88) to score against this opposition for the third game in four.

In contrast to his opposition counterparts, Sergio Aguero finds himself in top form after scoring in three successive matches to take his record to eight goals in just nine starts this season.

With six goals to his name in 12 previous league appearances against Liverpool, he certainly offers strong value at 9/2 (5.50) first goalscorer odds, as well as 6/5 (2.20) anytime to score his first ever goal at Anfield.

Raheem Sterling is yet to score in eight games against his former club since leaving Anfield three years ago, but is on offer at 11/5 (3.20) to come back to haunt them this time out after scoring in four of his six league appearances this season.

Fellow winger Leroy Sane struck three goals in the two league encounters between the teams last season, so could prove a strong longer bet at 13/5 (3.60) anytime.

Odds correct at the time of writing. Please gamble responsibly.
