FREE SCORING LIVERPOOL
Liverpool are back to their goal-scoring form. Their 5-1 victory over FC Porto is the highlight of a free scoring team. Jurgen Klopp’s men have scored 17 goals in their 5 games. The trio of Mo Salah, Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino look to be back to their best. Salah particularly seems to be scoring for fun this season with 8 goals in 8 matches this season. They will however need to shore up their defence as they let in 3 goals against newcomers Brentford in an entertaining 3-3 draw last week.
Liverpool will also be evident of the fact that they’re facing a Man City side that hardly concedes. City have kept 5 clean sheets in their last 5 Premier League clashes. If there’s a team capable of scoring against City though, it is Liverpool.
Liverpool have scored at least 3 goals in their last 4 matches. Click here to bet on Over 2.5 in Liverpool VS Man City @ 1.64 odds on Nairabet.
MANCHESTER CITY’S TIGHT DEFENCE
Manchester City are playing a different game this season. They may not be their usual free-scoring self but they boast a mean defence. City have not conceded a single goal in the Premier League since Tottenham beat them 1-0 in August. Their brilliant display against Chelsea was a testament to their credentials. Chelsea failed to have a single shot on target despite playing at home. Guardiola will however be aware of the fact that he’s facing a formidable Liverpool side scoring for fun.
