Manchester City returned to the top of the Premier League over the weekend, setting the stage perfectly for their Anfield showdown with Liverpool this Sunday.
Goals from Raheem Sterling and Sergio Aguero gave Pep Guardiola’s side a 2-0 home win over Brighton, before a stunning equaliser from Daniel Sturridge maintained Liverpool’s unbeaten record in their 1-1 draw at Chelsea.
The two ante-post title favourites occupy the top two positions in the table, each having picked up 19 points from their first 7 matches. City remain odds-on favourites to win the title, at a best price of 8/11* with Bet365, but that could change this week if they fail to learn the lessons of their last two visits to Anfield.
Liverpool blew them away in both the Premier League and the Champions League last season, scoring seven goals across the two games, and will be looking to replicate the lightning fast start that saw them go in 3-0 ahead at the break in the European fixture in April. Liverpool are the marginal favourites in the match betting at 31/20* with BetVictor, with City at 9/5* with Bet365.
