Teams to draw
The world’s best team, Manchester City head into the game after Chelsea proved that they are human after all. The Blues held City to a 4-4 draw prior to the international break. City will look to bounce back after that frustrating result against the Chelsea side which has struggled for consistency this season.
However, the Cityzens will know that Liverpool are not an easy team to play against and for that reason, there is a good chance that they will play a conservative brand of football in this game. Pep Guardiola’s side will also be aware that a loss in this game could see Liverpool leapfrog them into first place in the league.
Liverpool are not as strong as City on paper. However, they will be high in confidence as they are second in the league. Klopp’s side tend to pull above their weight when they are on a high. There will be little margin for error from both teams in this game and it should be a tight game with the ball being confined to midfield for large portions of it. The game has the makings of a draw.
Erling Haaland to score
Haaland scored 36 goals in the Premier League last season, breaking the all-time record for the most goals scored in a single league season. Some have said that he has been struggling so far in the league this season, however, he has so far scored 17 goals from 18 games which still represents a brilliant return.
Haaland has a good chance of scoring in this game and he will be a threat to the Liverpool defence. The Liverpool defence has been miserly so far this season as they have conceded just ten goals so far which is the joint-fewest along with third placed Arsenal. It will take a big job for the Cityzens attack to break down the Reds defence going by their current level of form. However, if there is one man who is capable of breaking down the Reds backline and getting City a goal against them, it is Haaland.
Two goals to be scored
There is going to be a little to seperate the teams in this game. Both will employ cautious tactics as they will know that it is still early days in the season. They will play defensively in order to try and capitalize upon errors from the opposition which will be expected to be few and far between.
Our prediction for this game is a 1-1 draw with Mohamed Salah scoring for Liverpool and Haaland finding the back of the net for City. It will be a low scoring affair but both sides should get at least one goal apiece with the few opportunities that they manage to carve upon. All in all, it should be a low scoring affair with both sides carving up one goal apiece against the run of play.
