Manchester City welcome Liverpool to the Etihad Stadium in the Premier League at Saturday lunchtime (12:30) and this could be a spectacular affair.

One point separates the two teams heading into this one so we could see Liverpool potentially replace their hosts at the top of the Premier League table. We preview this clash by picking out a couple of the best markets on offer to punters.

Man City vs Liverpool Betting Tips

  • Over 3.5 goals - 6/5
  • Dominik Szoboszlai to have 1+ shots on target - 6/5

Match Odds 

Man City are 4/6 to win this one. A draw is priced at 16/5, as are Liverpool.

Both teams to score in this one is the short price of 1/2. Over 2.5 goals is the same value but there are better odds in backing over 3.5 goals at 6/5.

Team News

The hosts will be sweating over the fitness of star striker Erling Haaland after he suffered an ankle injury on international duty with Norway. Ederson and Nathan Ake are also doubtful but all three could yet feature in this crunch clash. John Stones and Kevin De Bruyne remain sidelined.

Liverpool are going to be without Andrew Robertson and Thiago Alcantara, who are both ruled out until around the new year.

Over 3.5 goals @ 6/5 

This fixture has grown over recent years, largely due to Jurgen Klopp's side being Pep Guardiola's biggest threat in the Premier League for a period, as shown by their 2019-20 title triumph.

We now always expect a frantic game of football when these two newfound rivals lock horns, and we are certainly expecting entertainment on Saturday with just a point separating the two sides at this moment in time.

In nine out of the last 11 meetings between these two clubs across all competitions, at least four goals have been scored in the game. And all evidence from the way these sides have performed so far this campaign points to action at both ends. If we're lucky, it'll be just as good as City's 4-4 draw with Chelsea a few weeks ago.

Dominik Szoboszlai to have 1+ shots on target @ 6/5

It's fair to say Liverpool fans are loving their new star midfielder in Dominik Szobozlai. The Hungary captain was one of the most exciting transfers in the Premier League over the summer, and the supporters are enjoying watching him ply his trade at Anfield.

Szoboszlai has been impressive in his first portion of Premier League action with one goal and two assists to his name, but he will look to boost those figures because of the talent that he has. And with two goals in his latest international appearance, which secured Hungary's qualification for Euro 2024, he will want to translate that goalacoring touch more often for Liverpool.

The Hungarian doesn't shy away from efforts on goal from range as he tends to occupy space just outside the box, similar to Rodri for City. And we saw what he can do from that distance with his goal against Aston Villa, as well as his Carabao Cup rocket against Leicester City.
