Liverpool vs. Manchester City: prediction for the match (February 7, 2021)
Manchester City F.C.
The central meeting of the 23rd round of the Premier League between "Liverpool" and "Manchester City" will take place on February 7. The match will be held without spectators.
The upcoming match may let "Liverpool" improve its position in the race for the championship: in case of victory, the Liverpudlians will reduce the gap from the "Cityzens" to 4 points.
After the Liverpudlians won 2 away victories with the same result (3:1) over "Tottenham" and "West Ham", it seemed that the crisis was over (before that the team had not won in 5 league matches in a row), but in the last round Jurgen Klopp’s players lost again at home, and again with a dry score 0:1. Before these two defeats, Jurgen Klopp's men had not lost for 68 matches in a row at home in the Premier League. Thus, taking into account the goalless draw with "Manchester United" in the 19th round, "Liverpool" cannot score at "Anfield" in 3 matches in a row, which has not happened with the team since October 1984 (goalless home streak lasts for already 348 minutes).
Before the start of the 23rd round, the team is in 4th place in the standings and is 7 points behind the leader. The current Premier League season is the worst for "Liverpool" since the 2015/16 season.
Upcoming Predictions for Football
Manchester City F.C.
"Cityzens" have been performing like champions, winning 9 Premier League matches in a row. Taking into account 4 victories in the League Cup and the FA Cup, the team won 13 official matches in a row; the club managed such a series of successful matches for the first time in 141 years of existence. Also, "Manchester City" is the first Premier League club since 2002 to have such a winning streak.
In the last Premier League draw, Josep Guardiola's guys after 21 matches had 3 points less, but in the last championship season 2018/19 - 3 points more. It is worth noting the defense of Manchester City: the team did not concede in the last 6 Premier League matches in a row, which has not happened with the "Cityzens" since September-October 2018. In addition, for the entire current championship, the team missed only 13 goals, which is the best indicator in the league.
In the coaching confrontation between Jurgen Klopp and Josep Guardiola, the German has a minimal advantage. In 20 head-to-head matches in all tournaments, Klopp won 9 victories, and Guardiola won 8, three more matches ended in a draw. At the same time, in the Premier League, the statistics are equal: both coaches have 3 wins and 3 draws.
Our prediction is Manchester City’s victory with a coefficient of 2.17 on 1xbet.
