Within the fourth round of the EPL, Manchester City will host Liverpool at their home ground. The central match in the English elite, in which the Citizens are considered clear favorites of the match. One may agree with such action line, as City have started the season well. Guardiola’s team is very good in domestic matches, while Liverpool play a little bit weaker away, than at Anfield.
Sterling will not be able to participate in the upcoming match, as he has a red card. Everyone else from the first squad are ready to go out on the pitch. Man City got seven points in three matches and are situated on the fourth position in the table, right behind Liverpool and Huddersfield. The Terriers will soon cancel themselves out. The EPL newbies aren’t ready yet to compete with the strongest teams, while the Reds are the competitors for Man City.
Liverpool lost two points in the first round, in an away match against Watford. The match ended in a 3:3 draw. After that, the men from Merseyside were stronger than Crystal Palace, 1:0, and Arsenal, 4:0. In general, Liverpool have started the season more than successfully, but Manchester City are noticeably stronger, than Arsenal right now, and Crystal Palace and Watford even more so.
Manchester City will play for the win. The team’s goal is a victory in the league, and for that, they need to defeat their opponents in domestic matches. City had 11 victories in 19 domestic matches in the 2016-17 league season. Now Guardiola’s men have an opportunity to improve that result. Liverpool at home and away are two different teams. The Reds are vulnerable away.
Prediction for the match: Manchester City to win
