Manchester City v Liverpool Match Preview

Manchester City vs Liverpool EPL 7:45pm Kick Off

Barclays Premier League

  • Venue: Etihad Stadium
  • Date: Tuesday, 3 January
  • Kick-off: 1945 GMT
Get ready for another exciting night of Premiership action and this time around it's a clash of the titans.
Manchester City play hosts to Liverpool and both are looking to claim the 3 points that are up for grabs. Currently #1 in the table albeit only on goal difference Manchester City will be after a win to push ahead of hometown rivals Manchester United.

Liverpool on the other hand have the opportunity tonight to nudge ahead of Arsenal and claim a 5th spot in the league.

City will be looking to get Mario Balotelli back on the field tonight, after he missed the teams defeat at Sunderland the other day due to an ankle injury he picked up.

Luis Suarez should also return to Liverpools main lineup after serving his one match ban.

On paper the Liverpool side look the better of the 2, claiming 80 wins in this fixture whereas Manchester City can boast only 41.
Last season though in this matchup City stole the show with a 3-0 against the Liverpool club.
Manchester City have lost 1, drawn 1 and won 1 in their last 3 games, most notably the last game was a loss away to Sunderland which saw the side lose 1-0.

Liverpool however have won 1 and drawn 2 of the last 3, with their last game winning 3-1 against the Magpies on the 30th of December. This will give them a good boost ahead of tonight's match.

I'd hate to call this game, although it should be a very entertaining game of footy!
Feel free to comment below on your match predictions guys!


  1. I think manchester has a pretty good shot.

  2. I'd say that the way City are playing at the moment that they should get a win here, I think sunderland was just one of those freak loss games
