Pep Guardiola’s City are 10/11 favourites (generally) to beat Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool – who can be backed at 31/10 with Bet365, with the draw 3/1 at BetVictor.

Last season this fixture finished 1-1, with James Milner putting Liverpool ahead against his old club from the penalty spot before Sergio Aguero equalised.

Indeed, Aguero has scored against Liverpool for five successive league games at the Etihad Stadium – and he is will relish facing a weak looking Reds defence likely to feature Trent Alexander-Arnold, Ragnar Klavan, Joel Matip and Alberto Moreno.

The Argentinian simply must be backed each-way to score first here at 15/4 with Bet365 – who pay 1/3 odds for the ‘place’ in this market, if your player scores.

Liverpool’s only away league game so far this campaign was a 3-3 draw at Watford, while City drew their opening home game 1-1 with Everton, and with Vincent Kompany missing for the hosts we suggest backing both teams to score here at 4/7.

On the same basis we’ll also suggest backing another 1-1, plus a 2-1 home win – at best odds of 7/1 and 8/1 respectively with Bet365.
