Liverpool : Manchester City match analysis


We are awaiting a fantastic spectacle this Sunday at Anfield. Which team will get closer to a championship?  Pellegrini is announcing that City will not play only to get a draw, but I suspect that such a result will satisfy them. Currently, the Citizens have 4 points less than The Reds, but still have to play to matches. Both teams are in excellent shape and it is difficult to point out a front runner in this match. Bookmakers offer odds 2,40 for the win of a home team, 3,50 for a draw (decrease of theses odds has been noticed), and 2,80 for the away team. Looking at the statistics of last direct matches and 3 draws (2:2) during last 4 matches decrease of odds for a draw is understandable.

Generally it is a very tough game to set odds for because both team are very good in attack. In my opinion, looking at the odds, it is the most logical to play for draw. In my opinion odds of 2,40 for the Reds or 2,80 for the Citizens are not worth playing (courses are low, risk is high). I think that this match will end with a high score. An average number of goals in the Premier League among these two teams is about 3.75 goals/match. The fact is that is is rather difficult to imagine attacks form the first minute, but I assume that with the temperament of both teams there will be goals scored. Odds on over 3 goals is 1,90, maybe its not too high but I will play at the sake of 2/10.

  • Average number of goals scored in matches involving Liverpool in the Premiership this season - 3.9 goal / match
  • Average number of goals scored in matches involving Manchester City in the Premiership this season - 3.6 goal / match
  • Average number of goals in the last ten matches direct - 2.7 goal / match
