Manchester City v Liverpool Betting Tips
Manchester City host Liverpool in what should be one of the most interesting games of the season. This will be Liverpool’s first game since winning the Premier League, taking the title from City themselves. That should leave City with a point to prove, with Liverpool also wanting to show just how dominant they have been this year. Expect full strength teams from both sides and plenty of action for a game to remember.

Manchester City’s Recent Form
Last Time Out For Manchester City
City’s title defence officially came to an end with a 2-1 defeat to Chelsea last week. In City’s most important game of their season, it was their defence that again let them down. Despite having the best of the early exchanges, Chelsea took the lead after 38 minutes. Benjamin Mendy lost the ball after a City free kick, giving Christian Pulisic the chance to run from his own half and slot the ball past Ederson. Kevin De Bruyne equalised with an incredible free kick after the break, but it wasn’t long before another defensive blunder from City. Fernandinho twice handled in the box, handing Chelsea a penalty and getting himself sent off. Willian dispatched the penalty, ending City’s chance at the title for this year. Despite errors at the back, Kevin De Bruyne still put in a performance to be proud of. He’s been in incredible form since the Premier League returned, and he will surely want to continue that form on Thursday.
Liverpool’s Recent Form
Last Time Out For Liverpool
Liverpool come into this game on the back of 8 days of rest, following a 4-0 win over Crystal Palace. After a difficult Merseyside Derby, this was about as straightforward as it gets for Jurgen Klopp’s men. Trent Alexander-Arnold opened the scoring after 23 minutes, sending a 30 yard free kick into the top corner past a helpless Wayne Hennessey. 20 minutes later, Mo Salah doubled the lead and the game was all but over. Fabinho scored with another long range strike after the break, before Sadio Mane’s counter attack wrapped up the win. It was a performance typical of what we’ve come to expect from Liverpool this year. Even against a Palace side that prides itself on a strong defence, they had no answer for Liverpool. One thing the Reds almost always guarantee is goals. A world class attack followed by some error prone defending make for exciting games whenever Liverpool are involved.
Bet UK’s Festival of Football
Bet UK’s Festival of Football continues with another boost for tonight’s match. Liverpool have been on a record setting season this year, racking up 28 wins from 31 matches. Of those 28 matches, we’ve seen both teams score in 15 of them. Liverpool are remarkable going forward, but are always vulnerable to the counter, which has left them with less clean sheets than they would have aimed for. Combine that fact with Manchester City’s record of scoring in 28 of their 31 games, and we should be in for plenty of goals on Thursday. With that being said, Bet UK have boosted Liverpool to win and both teams to score to a huge 5/1.
Bet UK’s Headline Betting Tip
In the lead up to this match, Liverpool’s Mo Salah has spoken about his desire to win another Golden Boot. After Pierre Emerick Aubameyang scored twice last night, Mo Salah is 2 goals behind in the race for top scorer. Expect him to try and get off to a hot start on Thursday and earn his 3rd consecutive golden boot.
