Why you should support Manchester City
The Citizens have added the world’s most coveted player to an already dominant squad, and he could cause tons of trouble for Liverpool’s struggling back line. Erling Haaland is at a record pace, scoring 15 goals in nine league games, and he missed Wednesday’s game and will be one of the freshest players on the pitch. City are scoring more than 3.5 goals per game and their plus-24 differential is 11 goals better than any other team. They face a Liverpool side who net 1.5 per game, and the Reds allow 43.5 of their opponents’ shots to hit the target, the league’s worst mark.
Haaland has a lot of support, with people like Kevin de Bruyne, Phil Foden and Bernardo Silva all capable of their own exciting displays. De Bruyne leads the league with nine assists, Foden has six goals and four assists and Silva has scored twice and set up four goals. City are also among the best in the league at the back, allowing nine goals and 19 shots on target. Star goalie Ederson has a record five clean sheets. Liverpool have won just one of the last eight league meetings between the sides (1-3-4), and City edged them 23-12 in both EPL clashes last season.
Why you should support Liverpool
The Reds should have some confidence after the rout at Rangers, and Mohamed Salah scored a hat-trick in Wednesday’s game. The Egyptian star is off to a slow start in the league, scoring twice and setting up three goals. But he shared the league lead with 23 goals last season and will be looking to ensure his EPL breakout comes up against a huge rival. Roberto Firmino scored two goals and Darwin Nunez had one as Liverpool outscored Rangers 20-7 (9-2 on target). Firmino and Nunez also scored last week against Arsenal as the Reds held the ball for 56% of the game.
City aren’t allowing many shots but it could give Ederson an advantage in the net. The Brazilian star has saved less than 58% of the shots he has faced, so if the Reds can find the target they could have success. Liverpool have allowed third fewest shots (69) and attempts on target (30) and also have a star goalkeeper. Alissona teammate of Ederson with the Brazil The national team, has a save percentage of 66.7 and will be looking to outperform their compatriot. Liverpool are unbeaten in their last 27 EPL games (20-7-0) at Anfield – with a 71-16 advantage in goal.
