Liverpool vs Manchester City Preview

Liverpool vs Manchester City

Competition – UEFA Champions League

Stadium – Anfield

Date: 4th April 2018

Kick-off time – 19:45 GMT

This all-English quarterfinal means that the Premier League will have a representative in the semifinal of this season’s Champions League, which has not been very common in recent times.

Manchester City are admittedly the best side in England at the moment and they could even clinch the Premier League title by the weekend, but like they found out when Liverpool became the first and only side to beat them this season in the league, the Reds are no pushovers and they will match them fire for fire in this game.

Liverpool won their last game 2-1 at Crystal Palace to make it 6 wins from their last 8 games in all competitions.

Mohamed Salah, like he has done so often this season netted the winner to take his goal haul for the Premier League and Champions League to 35 goals, 20 of which have come at home.

The Reds have netted 28 goals in their last 10 home games in all competitions and netted 4 against City when they last visited them.

Manchester City are also not easy to stop on the attack.   Guardiola’s men have netted 24 times in their last 10 away matches, with 7 of those games ending in wins for them.

These two sides’ form on the attack makes this game an exciting game in prospect.

Liverpool have seen 3 or more goals scored in all but one of their last 10 home games.

Manchester City have won one, lost 3 and drawn 2 of their last six meetings with Liverpool.
