Liverpool v Manchester City Preview

by | Previews

Although it is still early in the season, there is a huge game taking place at Anfield on Sunday 3rd October, as Liverpool face Manchester City.

After just six games, the two most recent Premier League champions meet with Liverpool sitting top of the table, one point ahead of second placed City.

Liverpool amongst the goals

Liverpool will go into Sunday’s game as the top scorers in the Premier League having scored 15 goals in their opening six games. They have scored three times in four of those opening games, including on the last three occasions.

However, they were held to a 3-3 draw at newly promoted Brentford last weekend, which suggests they do have some defensive vulnerabilities to address.

That said, they bounced back in midweek with an impressive 5-1 win away at FC Porto in the Champions League, to back up their opening UCL win against AC Milan, when they scored three times again in a thrilling 3-2 success.

Manchester City’s unconvincing start

When Manchester City were beaten 1-0 at Tottenham on the opening day of the Premier League season, eyebrows were raised. However, they seemed to have bounced back well with successive 5-0 home wins against Norwich and Arsenal, before a solid 1-0 win at Leicester.

A 0-0 draw at the Etihad against Southampton was another surprise result, but then City went to Chelsea and came away with an impressive 1-0 success at the reigning champions of Europe.

However, City were comfortably beaten 2-0 by PSG in midweek in the Champions League, which has made the Blues start to the season an inconsistent one.

Head-to-head meetings

The last time these clubs met at Anfield was in February as Liverpool were losing their grip on their Premier League title, whilst City were on the charge looking for their third EPL crown in the past four seasons. City ran out 4-1 winners that day, helped by two big mistakes from the Reds keeper, Alison, and goals from Raheem Sterling, Phil Foden, and a Ilkay Gundogan brace.

In fact, you must go back four meetings to November 2019 for Liverpool’s last success over City, when they won 3-1 at Anfield. Goals that day from Fabinho, Sadio Mane, and Mo Salah helped see a power shift in English football as the Reds went on to become the champions of England for the first time in three decades.
