This weekend gives way to a very important Premier League match that might point towards the future Champions League champion. Manchester City goes to Anfield Road to measure forces with a very in-form Liverpool. The bookmakers might disagree on the winner, but they all agree that goals will be scored.
Their latest match saw a first, neither Suarez nor Sturridge managed to score for the first time this year, after both goals were penalties and converted by Steven Gerrard. Liverpool are unbeaten in their last nine games, and even if they have defensive problems, they also can count on Premier League’s top goalscorers.
Manchester City on the other hand, didn’t have as many problems winning their last league game. They had four different goalscorers and just one conceded goal. Their recent form sports only wins, with some points dropped at Emirates Stadium, for the unexpected draw against Arsenal. Last time the two teams met, City managed to win with a minimum advantage, but now Liverpool is on the first place, and by the looks of it, plans to stay there.
The Citizens have conceded only 29 goals this season, as opposed to Liverpool’s 40 goals and managed to keep 13 clean sheets. Liverpool keeps experimenting with their backline which only points towards Skrtel with a starting eleven spot. The visitors also know which Liverpool player possesses scoring threats, and one of the most interesting on field battles might end up being Luis Suarez vs Kompany. The Liverpool player is mostly dangerous because of his unpredictability, you never know from which pass he can engineer a goal.
