Two of the English top-flight’s highest scoring teams this season go head to head this weekend which shouldn’t be devoid of entertainment

Liverpool and Manchester City will square off at Anfield on Sunday evening in what will be the biggest game of the Premier League weekend.

Jurgen Klopp’s me had to leave it late on New Year’s Day before seeing of Burnley. They also responded late against Merseyside rivals Everton in the FA Cup thanks to new recruit Virgil van Dijk.

Liverpool had seen the departure of Phillippe Coutinho to Barcelona this week and while they will have a big hole to fill with his exit, LionsBet has quoted them at odds of (3.05) to claim victory in this game.

After dropping points against Crystal Palace on New Year’s Eve, the Citizens responded with dominant victories of Watford, Burnley in the FA Cup and Bristol City in the League Cup.

Pep Guardiola’s charges maintain a 15-point lead atop the standings and are tipped to win on Merseyside at odds of (2.30).

A draw is priced at (3.75).

Manchester City might have triumphed 5-0 in the reverse fixture at the Ethiad Stadium, however they are winless in their last 14 Premier League trips to Anfield, drawing four and losing 10.

Liverpool are thus primed to avoid defeat at odds of (1.50).

Since Klopp took over in October 2015, the Reds have scored 40 goals against the league’s ‘big six.’ City’s attack can’t be underestimated here so it’s both teams to find the back of the net at odds of (1.45).

64 goals and 50 goals respectively mean that no team has scored more goals than Pep’s men and Liverpool so far this term. This means this epic game won’t be devoid of goals and backing more than three goals at (1.55) would definitely be rewarding for punters with LionsBet.

Mohamed Salah’s involvement in 22 league goals (17 goals, five assists) means he is the Merseysiders favourite to score anytime at (1.75).

Sergio Aguero has scored six goals against Liverpool but never at Anfield. The Argentine is available at (1.55) to break the duck anytime.
