An eagerly anticipated match takes centre stage tonight at the City of Manchester Stadium in what many are dubbing as the Premier League title race’s decisive moment.
Two of the best managers in club football are set to face each other where both will know how vital three points will be for their respective league campaigns.
Klopp has not just captured the hearts of Liverpool fans, but for the neutral fan he is a very well respected manager. An often animated character, and someone who speaks his mind in press conferences, he’s certainly transformed the way this Liverpool team play. Now 20 games undefeated in the Premier League and hungry for more, their confidence looks to be sky high. Klopp has played down the title chances by referencing he just wants to ‘enjoy the ride’ of the Premier League title race. Although with Liverpool’s best chance in nearly 20 years, we all know how important this is to manager, club and the fans.
As we referenced in our Man City v Liverpool betting preview, Man City are now the more dominant force in Manchester, and with three Premier League titles under their belt, they will certainly be looking to derail Liverpool’s hope of winning a league title since 1990.
Liverpool fans won’t be happy seeing Raheem Sterling climbing the goalscorer chart this season, but he is and he’s having a very good season too. Currently Sterling has 9 goals to his name in the campaign and 6 assists. Maintaining a shots on target percentage of 79% (19 shots on target out of 24 total shots), the highest in the current top 10 goalscorers.
