Robbo's #PickYourPunt pays @ 8/1

It's a real six-pointer on Merseyside this weekend as Man City trail league leaders Liverpool by just a single point with 11 games remaining. Arsenal are also just one point and two points further back, with a three-way tussle for the trophy looking likely until the latter weeks.

The Reds are in rampant form ahead of Sunday after winning their last seven games in all competitions, while the Citizens are in a similar vein of form having claimed victory in their last five.

Team News

Liverpool received a big boost on Thursday with the return to action of talisman Mohamed Salah, who will hope to start on Sunday after his substitute appearance in the Europa League. Dominik Szoboszlai also entered the fray in the second half and could line up from the beginning against City.

Conor Bradley and Virgil van Dijk are set to return to the starting XI but there is less certainty over Ibrahima Konate, who suffered a knock against Sparta Prague. Joe Gomez or Jarell Quansah will deputise in the heart of defence if the Frenchman isn't passed fit.

Alisson and Trent Alexander-Arnold headline the names still out injured for the hosts.

Jack Grealish is out injured for City, who have concerns over Jeremy Doku (muscular issue) and Matheus Nunes (finger). Kevin De Bruyne will return to the starting XI alongside Phil Foden, Bernardo Silva and probably Kyle Walker.

Match Odds

Liverpool have been given odds of 9/5 to win and go four points clear of City, who are slight favourites at 5/4 to claim victory themselves. The draw can be backed at 3/1, both teams to score is 2/5 and over 3.5 goals is 6/5.

Man City to win

Pep Guardiola's side responded to an early setback against Manchester United last weekend to win their third straight Premier League game. In fact, only Chelsea (1-1) have managed to prevent the reigning champions from taking maximum points in their last 10 in the competition.

City's record at Anfield doesn't make for great reading - they've won just once there under Guardiola - but Liverpool have only won two of the last five meetings between them there themselves.

Liverpool's last match-up with a title rival saw them lose 3-1 at Arsenal in early February, and before November's 1-1 draw at the Etihad Stadium, had lost their last two head-to-heads with City in all competitions.

Both teams to score

One thing you can usually be sure about in this fixture is that there will be a goal on either side. In the last 10 meetings between Liverpool and Man City, there has only been one occasion where a team has failed to score - when Liverpool won 1-0 in November 2022.

Both defences haven't exactly been in sparkling form either, despite the Reds actually keeping three clean sheets on the bounce before Thursday's 5-1 win at Sparta Prague. Sunday's hosts have actually conceded in their last five Premier League games at Anfield, while City haven't managed to shut out any of their opposition in their last three, leaking to Luton Town (twice), Manchester United and FC Copenhagen.

Phil Foden to score anytime

The England international has been on fire for the 2022/23 treble winners this season, and particularly over the last month.

Foden has six goals in as many league games since the start of February, firing a hat-trick at Brentford, scoring one at AFC Bournemouth, and a bagging a brace in the Manchester derby last time out.

He also has a decent goalscoring record against Liverpool, striking in three straight games - two of them at Anfield - between July 2020 and October 2021, before blanking in his last three appearances against them.

Can the Reds stop him on current form?
