Match Summary

1 Look out for:

Sergio Aguero has once again been in fine form for Man City in the early stages of this season. The Argentine, who already has five Premier League goals to his name this term, is certainly a player for the big occasion, and can be backed at 4/1 in the first goalscorer market with Paddy Power.

3 It's a long shot, but…

Liverpool recorded a 3-0 win over Man City in their last meeting at Anfield, which came in the Champions League back in April. The 3-0 home success on this occasion is available at 28/1 with bet365 as part of our football score predictions.

One to Watch: Mohamed Salah

Mohamed Salah enjoyed a staggering 2017-18 campaign at Liverpool, netting 44 times in all competitions, and an impressive 32 of those arrived in the Premier League.

The Egypt international has scored three Premier League goals for the Reds this season, but it would be fair to say that he has struggled to hit top form, and was substituted against former club Chelsea in the top flight last weekend.

Manchester City will be all too aware of the damage that Salah could cause when the two teams lock horns at Anfield, though.

The 26-year-old is available at 22/5 in the first goalscorer market with 888sport, which should certainly be considered as part of our best football betting tips.

Liverpool vs Manchester City Betting Tips, Preview & Predictions

Mohamed Salah remains Liverpool’s main threat even as he struggles to reach last year’s heights

The top two in the Premier League will lock horns at Anfield this weekend as Liverpool welcome the champions Manchester City to Merseyside. Both teams have won six and drawn one of their seven Premier League matches at the start of the 2018-19 campaign, and are widely regarded as the two favourites to battle for the crown this season. Liverpool dropped their first points of the campaign away to Chelsea last weekend, while Man City recorded a comfortable 2-0 victory over Brighton & Hove Albion to make it four Premier League successes on the spin.

Liverpool are 11/8 as part of the best football betting tips for the weekend. As mentioned above in this Premier League preview, the Reds have won six and drawn one of their seven top-flight fixtures this term to sit second in the table. Jurgen Klopp’s side have been victorious in all four of their Premier League games at Anfield this season without conceding a single goal, and are actually unbeaten on home soil in the league since April 2017. What’s more, Liverpool have overcome Man City in each of the last three meetings between the two teams.

Man City are 9/5 to collect all three points from Anfield. Like Liverpool, the reigning Premier League champions have only dropped points in one of their seven league matches this term. Indeed, they were held at Wolverhampton Wanderers on August 25, but have overcome Newcastle United, Fulham, Cardiff City and Brighton in their last four top-flight matches. Man City are also unbeaten on their travels in the Premier League since a 4-3 loss away to Liverpool back in January, which is important to note when considering the potential football predictions.

The draw is available at 5/2, which must be considered as part of our Premier League predictions. There is not an awful lot between these two teams in terms of quality, but it must be considered in this Premier League preview that there has only been one draw in the last 13 meetings between the pair. Indeed, Liverpool won the corresponding Premier League match last season, in addition to both legs of their Champions League quarter-final.

Predicted Score: Liverpool 1 - 1 Manchester City
