According to the OPTA stats right now, Manchester City still have an 87% chance of landing a sixth Premier League title in the space of seven seasons. That’s despite dropping more points on the road when drawing 4-4 at Chelsea. That result means that Pep Guardiola’s side command just a one-point lead at the top of the standings ahead of Liverpool and Arsenal.

Liverpool have a roughly 7% chance of getting their hands back on the trophy although that percentage will increase significantly if they can somehow win this encounter. The form of Mohamed Salah is one reason that they will feel confident, while the new-look midfield has worked out better than Jurgen Klopp could have anticipated.

There are issues in the sense that Andrew Robertson is missing in action and there’s also the question of how Trent Alexander-Arnold will acquit himself against the lively Jeremy Doku in this game. The Belgian recently played a starring role as part of a 6-1 win over Bournemouth, while Erling Haaland has thirteen goals on the board thus far.

Indeed, this is the battle of the big guns and we’re anticipating an entertaining encounter. A Manchester City win and both teams to score is more attractive than simply backing the home side if you want to go down this route. When you place a Bet Builder, it could also be worth considering a number of cards to be given during the ninety minutes.
