It was a big weekend for the city of Manchester, and another one certainly looms for the Blue half.

Fred weighs all this as well as glancing in the direction of the Betfred Super League, as it stretches its legs breathlessly into the new campaign.

Liverpool vs Manchester City betting tips

  • Phil Foden first goalscorer @ 15/2
  • Man City to win @ 5/4

Man of the moment Phil Foden is 15/2 to score the opener for City at Anfield on Sunday, in a game being billed in some quarters as something of a Premier League  title decider.

Pep Guardiola's comeback kings, sparked by a Foden brace in the Manchester derby, are 5/4 favourites for all three points against injury-hit Liverpool.

Guardiola, who believes Foden is the best player in the league right now, actually spoke of Stockport-born Foden in the same breath as Lionel Messi this week.

He's now surely undroppable for City - and in this brilliant form, both scoring and creating, represents a huge boost for Gareth Southgate's Euro hopes for England in the summer.

Betfred punters are envisaging plenty of goals on Sunday with Liverpool fans piling on the Reds to win 3-1 at 18/1, but many City devotees are backing the Blues to triumph 4/1 at 33/1. A red card is priced up at 4/1, while an Erling Haaland hat-trick is available at 20/1.

Arsenal, who could go top by beating Brentford 24 hours before the Anfield showdown, put lowly Sheffield United to the sword on Monday to stay right slap-bang in the middle of a fascinating three-way battle for the title.

Ahead of the weekend’s matches, Betfred still have City as 5/6 favourites to retain the title with Liverpool at 2/1 - and goal-crazy Arsenal at 7/2. As for a top-four finish we have United drifting out to 14/1, with Aston Villa at 4/6 and Spurs evens.

Turning to the Betfred Super League, and the Wire will be looking to maintain their promising start to the campaign at Hull KR. The home side are favourites for the points but Betfred have Warrington at 6/4 to triumph. Matty Ashton is a tempting 9/1 shot to score the first try to make it four already for the season.

Warrington, along with Leeds and Catalans, are 9/1 with us to win the Betfred Super League Grand Final, behind 6/4 favourites Wigan and the unbeaten Saints at 9/4.
