Man City vs Liverpool (2022/23 Premier League) Key Info
Manchester City made it back-to-back wins against RB Leipzig and Burnley to reach the next round of the UEFA Champions League and English FA Cup, respectively. The Citizens look to have hit top form, and this comes at the right time for Pep Guardiola’s team, which is looking to put pressure on Arsenal.
Liverpool’s season hasn’t gone as planned, and they are out of all the cup competitions, including the UEFA Champions League, after their 6-2 aggregate loss to Real Madrid. The Reds have already beaten Manchester City this season in the EPL in October but lost a cup game in late December. They would fancy their chances of a win at the Etihad, although they need to step up.

Manchester City FC
After 27 games, Manchester City trail Arsenal by eight points, although they have played one game less. The Citizens have won 19 times in 27 games this season, and they are the closest challenger to the Gunners this year. Manchester City has won their last six games in all competitions, scoring 23 goals and conceding just one. They are in great condition and would be looking to win to stay within touching distance of the top.
Liverpool is having a strange season under Jürgen Klopp, and their title hopes are non-existent this season. They have seven wins less than Manchester City, and their attack has not been as coherent since the sale of Sadio Mane. However, the core problem is in the poor midfield, which negatively affects the team’s attack and defense at the same time. Liverpool arrives at the Etihad Stadium on the back of two consecutive defeats against Real Madrid and Bournemouth. The Reds sit outside the top four, and they aren’t even safe with Brighton and Brentford breathing down their necks.
MCI vs LIV: H2H
Liverpool has the better head-to-head record against Manchester City, but the last few games have been very competitive, with both teams featuring as title contenders at the beginning of every season. Liverpool won the first Premier League game between these teams earlier this season at Anfield.

Man City vs Liverpool Predictions
Both Teams to Score & Over 2.5 Goals @ 1.91 (10/11)
Games between Manchester City and Liverpool have always lived up to its standards. Despite Liverpool’s shortcomings this season, this game is still going to be an exciting one. Manchester City has scored an outrageous 67 league goals this season, and they are averaging more than two goals per game. They have one of the best attacking combinations in the world, and scoring at home is almost certain for the citizens.
Liverpool is struggling this season, but they still have very good players up front, which should be enough trouble for City’s defense. In three meetings against Man City this season, Liverpool has scored in all three games, and a goal-fest is very likely in this game.
Manchester City to Win @ 1.57 (4/7)
Liverpool cannot seem to shake off their poor away form this year, and they have now failed to win in any of their last three away matches, losing back-to-back games away from home, including a 1-0 defeat against Bournemouth at the Vitality Stadium. Manchester City already beat Liverpool at the Etihad Stadium just a few months ago, and when you consider their form in general, Man City’s odds to win are worth a bet in this fixture.
Erling Haaland to Score Anytime @ 1.73 (8/11)
No player in the world is as efficient as Erling Haaland. The Norwegian striker is in red-hot form, with nine goals in his last three games. This is a very impressive output, and the golden boot is almost in the bag for Erling Haaland. Manchester City always looks to finish off their chances through their number 9, and the English football bookmakers are offering good value on Erling Haaland to score anytime against Liverpool. However, it’s better to wait for starting lineups before putting this bet, as the Norwegian skipped his national duties during the break and was coping with an injury.
Man City vs Liverpool Team News
Erling Haaland suffered a minor injury but is back to full fitness and is expected to start up top for Manchester City. Phil Foden is the only injury doubt for Pep Guardiola; otherwise, he has a complete squad to face Liverpool.
Liverpool has been quite unlucky with injuries this season, but they have welcomed back a few big names like Virgil Van Dijk and Diogo Jota. Luis Diaz has started training with the team and might start from the bench against Manchester City.
