The Liverpool vs. Manchester City match will be played on Sunday, October 7, at the Anfield Stadium, Liverpool. This is the Premier League eighth round derby match. Liverpool is currently 2nd on the table with 19 points, while Manchester City is first with the same amount of points.
In their previous ten meetings, Liverpool recorded seven victories, Manchester City had only one win, while two matches ended in a draw. In their last four matches we saw over 2.5 goals. Manchester City's only victory was very convincing - they beat Liverpool by 5:0 at the start of previous season.
Liverpool had a strong start of the season, although their best player Mohamed Salah is underperforming at the moment. However, in the last three matches they played, Liverpool failed to record a victory and they scored only two goals. Chelsea kicked them out from League Cup, while they got a late equalizer against them in the league, and stayed undefeated, only to lose against Napoli in Champions League. If they lose the match against Manchester City, they will probably suffer a huge self confidence drop, and that might even ruin their whole season.
