Premier League Preview and Prediction: Liverpool vs Manchester City

Competition: Premier League – Liverpool vs. Manchester City

Venue: Anfield – Wednesday, March 2 – 20:00 GMT (15:00 ET)

Match Odds: Liverpool 7/5 – Draw 12/5 – Man City 15/8

Match Preview

Liverpool and Manchester City meet up for the second time in four days on Wednesday night in a key Premier League clash after Sunday’s League Cup Final showdown at Wembley. 

Manchester City won Sunday’s final on penalties after a hard fought battle between the sides and both need to focus once again on league commitments, with eleven games to go.

Liverpool thumped Aston Villa 6-0 in their last league outing and Jurgen Klopp will be expecting his side to bounce back from Sunday’s penalty heartache in front of their own fans here.

The Reds have the chance to close the gap on City to six points despite the fact they are five places behind them in the table. They thumped their opponents 4-1 in the reverse fixture and will be looking for an impressive double here.

Manchester City need to pick up their domestic form and send out a message to the chasing pack and the teams above them here.

City may have lifted the League Cup on Sunday, but they have lost their last two Premier League games on the bounce and are at risk of falling out of the title race altogether with another defeat.

If they do not start to win games consistently they may even fall out of the top four with sides behind them continually gaining ground.

Manuel Pellegrini will be expecting his side to build upon Sunday’s cup win and avoid defeat at all costs here. They have a difficult run of fixtures in the run in to the season and cannot afford to put any unnecessary pressure on themselves.

The 120 minutes played on Sunday might leave both sides drained but this is sure to be another intriguing battle between two attacking sides.

Team News

The Liverpool squad is being stretched with the number of injuries they have at the moment. Joe Gomez, Danny Ings, Martin Skrtel, Jordan Rossiter, Mamadou Sakho and Kevin Stewart are all out. Steven Caulker and Daniel Sturridge are both doubtful. Kolo Toure is expected to start at centre-back alongside Lucas after the pair coped relatively well with Sergio Aguero on Sunday.

Manchester City have been welcoming back some of their long term injured players of late, although Samir Nasri, Kevin De Bruyne and Fabian Delph are all out. It will be interesting to see if penalty shootout hero Willy Caballero retains his place in goal or if Joe Hart returns between the sticks.

Key Points

Liverpool’s last five: L/W/L/D/W

Manchester City’s last five: W/D/W/L/L

Key Stat: Liverpool are unbeaten in their last 14 home games against Manchester City in all competitions. 

Key Player: Raheem Sterling – The former Liverpool man will continue to want to prove why he chose to move to City. He will be looking to make it two wins in four days against the Reds in what is sure to be a hostile return to Anfield for the young England winger.

Score Prediction

Liverpool 2-2 Manchester City – Both these sides may well be tired after such a drawn out League Cup Final on Sunday. City have been out of form in the league of late and may struggle again to break down a resilient Liverpool defence, despite the number of injuries the Reds are struggling with. There should be goals in this but it’s hard to split them on paper coming into the clash.

FA Cup Preview and Prediction: Liverpool vs West Ham

Competition: FA Cup Fourth Round – Liverpool vs. West Ham United

Venue: Anfield – Saturday, January 30 – 17:30 GMT (12:30 ET)

Match Odds Liverpool 29/10 – Draw 12/5 – West Ham 29/10

Match Preview

Liverpool play host to West Ham in the FA Cup fourth round on Saturday evening in what is a repeat of the 2006 final that saw Liverpool fight back from 3-1 down to win on penalties.

Liverpool are facing their third match in seven days here. They booked a Wembley date with Manchester City for February 28th after their League Cup semifinal victory over Stoke City on penalties on Tuesday.

But with plenty of key players having played that match, Jurgen Klopp could rest some of those stars for the West Ham game, especially as they head to Leicester City on Tuesday night.

If the Reds do advance to the fifth round, it will mean they play at least seven matches next month as the fixtures just keep coming. So some big decisions lie at the German manager’s door on what to prioritise.

Christian Benteke could lead the line for Liverpool after starting on the bench against Stoke. He started both games against Exeter City in the third round of this competition.

For West Ham, the 2006 FA Cup final has been the closest the club has come to winning silverware since 1980. With the Hammer’s league form so strong, and with the scalps they have been pulling off, they could well go deep into this year’s FA Cup.

This competition gives them their last chance of winning silverware before they leave Upton Park for their move to the Olympic Stadium next season.

West Ham can take huge confidence from completing a league double over their counterparts on Saturday, scoring five goals and conceding none in the two league matches against Liverpool.

Embed from Getty Images

With longer rest time than their opponents too, they could inflict some serious damage on the Reds.

Dimitri Payet is a man that Liverpool will need to halt, as the Frenchman has been so impressive since joining from Marseille in the Summer. One defeat in eleven has seen the Hammers move up into sixth place in the league, one place above the Reds in seventh, so this should be a close battle.

Team News

The match comes too soon for the likes of Daniel Sturridge, Philippe Coutinho, Martin Skrtel and Divock Origi, while Danny Ings and Joe Gomez are long-term absentees.

West Ham recently lost Carl Jenkinson for the season. James Tomkins, Michail Antonio and Mark Noble are racing to bit fit, while Andy Carroll is expected to be back in training next week. Diafra Sakho is still missing through a knee injury.

Key Points

Liverpool’s last five in all competitions: D/L/W/W/L

West Ham’s last five in all competitions: W/W/W/L/D

Key Stat: Liverpool haven’t conceded a goal at Anfield in the FA Cup since 2012, which coincides with the last time they got to the final, when they played Chelsea in a 2-1 loss.

Key Player: Dimitri Payet – When Payet is on the pitch West Ham look a totally different side. He is West Ham’s top scorer and leader in assists and is a true fan favourite. He can cause problems for a Liverpool backline that has been decimated by injuries in recent weeks and he is more than capable of unlocking the door that can send West Ham to the next round.

Embed from Getty Images

Score Prediction

Liverpool 0-2 West Ham – A first league double over Liverpool since 1952 will give the Hammers huge amounts of confidence going into this one. Injuries on both sets of teams deplete the matchup of key players. But West Ham are confident away from home as victories over Arsenal, Manchester City and their opponents Liverpool have already shown. Whoever wins will be feared in round five.

Premier League Preview and Prediction: Norwich City vs Liverpool

Competition: Premier League – Norwich City vs. Liverpool

Venue: Carrow Road – Saturday, January 23 – 12:45 GMT (07:45 ET)

Match Odds: Norwich City 3/1 – Draw 5/2 – Liverpool 13/5

Match Preview

Norwich City welcome Liverpool to Carrow Road in Saturday’s early Premier League kick off, in which three points are vital for both teams.

Norwich return back to East Anglia after back-to-back defeats to Stoke City and Bournemouth. They conceded six goals in those two fixtures and need to shore up defensively now.

Manager, Alex Neil has been busy in the last few days with the signings of Scotland international Steven Naismith, Swiss centre-back Timm Klose and Ivan Pinto from Dynamo Zagreb joining to try and help maintain the Canaries’ Premier League status.

As we said in this week’s Podcast, Steven Naismith’s signing could prove valuable for the club with his goals and experience. Five more wins this season could keep them up, and with nine fixtures to play at home, Norwich will hope they can rely on home comforts to see them through.

Embed from Getty Images

Liverpool have been very inconsistent this term and are sitting in ninth place in the Premier League, with no win in three league matches. The latest being the 1-0 defeat at Anfield to Manchester United last Sunday.

A win over Exeter City in the FA Cup third round replay on Wednesday might have put some confidence back into the Reds, and Klopp ensured several first-team players were rested for that tie.

The German manager has plenty of injury worries that don’t seem to want to go away, with several first-team players out with injuries for extended periods of time. But one positive is that Jon Flanagan has returned after 18 months out.

Embed from Getty Images

The reverse fixture saw Norwich take a point at Anfield with a 1-1 draw back in September and the Canaries will be desperate to go one better this time around.

Team News

Norwich have no fresh injury concerns ahead of the game but Gary O’Neil will continue to serve his suspension after his red card against Stoke City.

Liverpool have a whole host of injuries as Divock Origi (knee), Philippe Coutinho (hamstring), Dejan Lovren (hamstring), Martin Skrtel (hamstring), Danny Ings (ACL), Joe Gomez (ACL) and Daniel Sturridge (hip) are all still sidelined

Key Points

Norwich City’s last five: L/W/W/L/L

Liverpool’s last five: W/W/L/D/L

Key Stat: Liverpool last lost at Carrow Road in May 1993.

Key Player: Wes Hoolahan – The Irish playmaker will want to add to his impressive tally of six assists for the season. With Steven Naismith expected to play some part, Norwich fans will be hoping they strike up a formidable partnership to propel them up the table.

Embed from Getty Images

Score Prediction

Norwich City 1-1 Liverpool – This one has draw written all over it. An impressive draw at Anfield for Norwich earlier in the season will give them belief. The Reds played in the week and Norwich have had that extra rest, so they will fancy their chances. But Liverpool will still be hard to beat. There might not be many goals but a score draw looks likely.

Premier League Preview and Prediction: Liverpool vs Arsenal

Competition: Premier League – Liverpool vs. Arsenal

Venue: Anfield – Wednesday, January 13 – 20:00 GMT (15:00 ET)

Match Odds: Liverpool 9/5 – Draw 5/2 – Arsenal 7/5

Match Preview

Liverpool welcome Arsenal to Anfield in what is undoubtedly the standout midweek fixture in the Premier League, in what will be a battle of squad depth with injuries seriously affecting both clubs.

Jurgen Klopp has an astonishing 13 players that could miss this game through injury and the German coach is struggling to get results without so many key men.

The Reds could only draw 2-2 with Exeter City in the FA Cup on Friday night, albeit with a very young and inexperienced side, and Klopp knows that beating Arsenal on Wednesday will be a tough task.

Embed from Getty Images

Arsene Wenger’s men arrive at Anfield as the Premier League leaders and will look to keep their three point lead above Manchester City after this round of matches.

The Gunners have plenty of injuries to worry about as well though, with seven first team names set to miss out.

Arsenal beat Sunderland 3-1 in the FA Cup on Saturday and have now won three games on the bounce in all competitions.

Embed from Getty Images

The reverse fixture ended 0-0 at the Emirates back in August, although both sides created plenty of chances in what was an entertaining game, so this one is unlikely to end goalless again.

Team News

Liverpool will welcome back James Milner on Wednesday night, though that is the only real boost as far as injury news goes. Mamadou Sakho, Jordan Henderson, Jordan Ibe, Daniel Sturridge and Kolo Toure are all doubtful and are unlikely to feature. While Divock Origi, Philippe Coutinho, Dejan Lovren, Martin Skrtel, Joe Gomez, Danny Ings, Jordan Rossiter and Jon Flanagan are all definitely out.

Arsenal star Alexis Sanchez is nearing a return to action but will miss out here once more. Tomas Rosicky, Francois Coquelin, Santi Cazorla, Jack Wilshere and Danny Welbeck are also sidelined, while David Ospina remains doubtful. Mesut Ozil will return after being given a ten day rest.

Key Points

Liverpool’s last five: D/L/W/W/L

Arsenal’s last five: W/W/L/W/W

Key Stat: Arsenal have only lost one of their last nine games against Liverpool in all competitions.

Key Player: Mesut Ozil – The German playmaker was rested for Saturday’s FA Cup game against Sunderland and will return to the lineup on Wednesday night refreshed. He has been in unstoppable form this season and will look to prove the difference.

Embed from Getty Images

Score Prediction

Liverpool 0-2 Arsenal – Liverpool’s injury concerns are much worse than Arsenal’s at this stage of the season and that will likely cost them on Wednesday. The Gunners have been in good form, despite missing key players of their own, and will expect to leave Anfield with three points.

Premier League Preview and Prediction: West Ham vs Liverpool

Competition: Premier League – West Ham United vs. Liverpool

Venue: Upton Park – Saturday, January 2 – 12:45 GMT (07:45 EST)

Match Odds: West Ham United 13/5 – Draw 12/5 – Liverpool 21/20

Match Preview

West Ham will host Liverpool in the Premier League’s first game of 2016 at Upton Park this Saturday lunchtime in a game in which the Reds will be looking for revenge after losing 3-0 in the reverse fixture back in August.

West Ham come into this one unbeaten in six Premier League games, but have only managed one win in their last nine and don’t look to be as much of a threat as they were in the early weeks of the campaign.

It’s remarkable how they are still in the top half of the table, after taking just nine points from a possible 27 in their last nine matches.

Embed from Getty Images

Injuries haven’t helped Slaven Bilic’s men, though they have managed well enough with the loss of Dimitri Payet. But with his return nearing, things look positive for the Hammers if they can make winning a more frequent event from now.

West Ham United’s Premier League record: P19 – W7 – D8 – L4

Liverpool have been impressive as well as efficient recently, winning their last two games 1-0 in the Premier League.

Inconsistency, however, is letting them down. A 3-1 win against Chelsea and a 4-1 win against Manchester City have been blighted by losses to Watford and Newcastle in the last couple of months.

They come into the game in seventh place, just one point and one place above West Ham in the table, so a win for either here would be an important one.

Liverpool’s Premier League record: P19 – W8 – D6 – L5

Embed from Getty Images

Liverpool will want to push on for the top four now they have put two wins together and manager Jurgen Klopp knows a good start to 2016 will increase the club’s chances of Champions League qualification.

Team News

West Ham are likely to still be without Dimitri Payet, although he is nearing a return to action. Aaron Cresswell and Nikica Jelavic are also doubts and might miss this one too through injury. Winston Reid, Diafra Sakho and Victor Moses are all definitely out and will miss the clash.

Liverpool will be without Jordan Henderson, Martin Skrtel, Jon Flanagan, Joe Gomez, Danny Ings, Divork Origi, James Milner and Jordan Rossiter. Daniel Sturridge and Joe Allen are doubts but could start as Jurgen Klopp will need to make changes again.

Key Points

West Ham United’s last five: D/D/D/D/W

Liverpool’s last five: L/D/L/W/W

Key Stat: West Ham are undefeated in their last seven home matches in the Premier League.

Key Player: Christian Benteke – The Belgian striker has been more clinical in front of goal recently, scoring in Liverpool’s last two games, and we expect him to be on the scoresheet once again here.

Embed from Getty Images

Score Prediction

West Ham United 0-1 Liverpool – We’re not expecting many goals in this clash as both will want to start the new year in as solid a way as possible. However, we feel that Liverpool have enough quality to just edge out an injury-stricken West Ham side here.

Premier League Preview and Prediction: Liverpool vs West Bromwich Albion

Competition: Premier League – Liverpool vs. West Bromwich Albion 

Venue: Anfield – Sunday, December 13 – 16:00 GMT (11:00 ET) 

Match Odds: Liverpool 2/5 – Draw 7/2 – West Brom 7/1

Match Preview

Liverpool welcome West Bromwich Albion to Anfield in one of three games on Sunday afternoon in the Premier League.

Jurgen Klopp’s side suffered a surprising defeat to Newcastle last weekend and will see this as a chance to get back on track, but know it won’t be easy task.

Liverpool have enjoyed some good from since Klopp took over but inconsistency has been an issue for them for some time and the same problems seem to be reoccurring.

Realistically Liverpool have a good chance of making the top four this season but they have to make sure they are taking maximum points in games they’re expected to win such as this.

Embed from Getty Images

West Brom have been in a good run of form of late and are unbeaten in their last three outings.

Tony Pulis’ side are sitting comfortably in 13th in the table and have taken points from some of the top sides already this season.

This is going to be a difficult task for West Brom but their recent form gives them confidence heading into this tie. Their point last weekend in their 1-1 draw with Tottenham was a great example of their resilience.

Embed from Getty Images

Team News

Liverpool have six injury concerns heading into this one. John Flanagan, Joe Gomez, Danny Ings, Mamadou Sakho and Jordan Ibe could all miss out. Daniel Sturridge has suffered yet another injury setback and has played just six times for the clubs this season.

West Brom have just two injury concerns as Ben Foster and Stephane Sessegnon remain unavailable.

Key Points

Liverpool’s last five: W/L/W/W/L

West Brom’s last five: L/L/W/D/D

Key Stat: Liverpool are unbeaten in the last four meetings between the sides.

Key Player: Philippe Coutinho – The Liverpool playmaker is their top scorer in the Premier League this season and possess the ability to turn any game in his sides favour.

Score Prediction

Liverpool 3-1 West Brom – Klopp’s side to get back on track and ease to victory in what could be an entertaining game full of goals.

Match Odds: Chelsea 21/20 – Draw 12/5 – Liverpool 5/2

Match Preview

Chelsea welcome Liverpool to Stamford Bridge in the first Premier League game of the weekend on Saturday in what is a huge game for both clubs.

Chelsea’s ongoing struggles don’t seem to be improving and it is difficult to see when their season is going to pick up. The pressure on Jose Mourinho and his side every game is so intense but this is a good chance for them to show other sides they are capable of bouncing back.

They come into this one off the back of their midweek League Cup exit to Stoke City, losing 5-4 on penalties after a 1-1 draw in normal time.

Chelsea’s Premier League record: P10 – W3 – D2 – L5

Last weekend’s ill-disciplined loss against West Ham was the champions’ fifth Premier League defeat of the season and they come into the game sitting in 15th place.

Liverpool sit six places higher in ninth but come into this one off the back of three consecutive league draws.

New manager Jurgen Klopp has a great chance of becoming even more of a fan favourite if he can guide his side to a victory in this huge tie.

Liverpool’s Premier League record: P10 – W3 – D5 – L2

Liverpool won 1-0 against AFC Bournemouth in the League Cup in midweek and will want to build on that solid performance with another good showing in London. They have already kept clean sheets at Arsenal and Tottenham this campaign, drawing both matches 0-0.

Klopp will have his side more than aware that Chelsea are not to be taken lightly despite their woeful form and will expect them to give their all to take three points.

Embed from Getty Images

Team News

Chelsea have four injury concerns. Thibaut Courtois and Branislav Ivanovic remain out, while Diego Costa and Pedro are doubts. Nemanja Matic is suspended following his first-half red card last weekend.

Liverpool’s injury woes continue as Kolo Toure, Danny Ings, Jordan Henderson, Joe Gomez and Jon Flanagan are set to miss out. Daniel Sturridge and Christian Benteke are doubts but the Liverpool faithful will be praying they both pass fitness tests.

Key Points

Chelsea’s last five in the Premier League: W/D/L/W/L

Liverpool’s last five in the Premier League: D/W/D/D/D

Key Stat: Stalemate – These two have drawn their last three meetings in all competitions.

Key Player: Willian – The Brazilian has probably been Chelsea’s best player so far this season. They need him to be at his very best if they’re to stand any chance of taking all three points in this one.

Chelsea 1-2 Liverpool – Liverpool to heap more misery on Chelsea, who just cannot seem to get going.

Venue: Goodison Park – Sunday, October 4 – 13:30 BST (08:30 ET)

Match Odds: Everton 13/8 – Draw 23/10 – Liverpool 13/8

Match Preview 

Everton host bitter rivals Liverpool in the Merseyside derby and one of the standout fixtures this weekend in the Premier League.

The Toffees come into this one off the back of their stunning 3-2 comeback against West Bromwich Albion where they were 2-0 down.

Roberto Martinez’s side are one point outside the Champions League places and although early on in the season that will be on their mind. This is a great chance to send out a message to the clubs around them in the table.

Everton have been slightly inconsistent so far this season, but have proved they are fearing nobody and will be pumped up ahead of this tie. This is the first of three tough upcoming fixtures for the home side which will see them play Manchester United and Arsenal in their next two games. It is important that they take something away from this fixture.

Embed from Getty Images

Liverpool sit 9th in the Premier League and their Europa League clash on Thursday night has only intensified the pressure on manager Brendan Rodgers.

They have struggled in front of goal so far this season, only netting seven times, and this is a must win game.

Daniel Sturridge marked his return with a brace last weekend and his performance will have lifted the camp and the fans, but they cannot rely on their talisman to provide alone.

Liverpool come into this one off the back of their 3-2 win against Aston Villa, where they suffered a scare having lead 3-0. Their defensive frailties are all too apparent and they cannot afford to give this strong Everton side any indication of their weaknesses otherwise they risk being picked apart.

Team News  

Everton’s injury woes continue with seven players expected to miss out. Leighton Baines is out until November with his ankle injury. Seamus Coleman, Jon Stones and Muhamed Besic are doubts but could feature. Tom Cleverley, Tony Hibbert and Steven Pienaar remain sidelined.

Liverpool have five players out for this one as Roberto Firmino, Christian Benteke, Jordan Henderson, Jon Flanagan and Dejan Lovren are sidelined. Daniel Sturridge will expect to lead the line.

Key Points 

Everton’s form: L/D/W/D/W

Liverpool’s form: D/L/L/D/W

Key Stat: Everton have only won one of the last between the sides at Goodison, the last three have all ended in draws.

Key Player: Romelu Lukaku – The Everton powerhouse had an incredible second half the comeback against West Brom, his performance saw him named man-of-the-match and the Toffees will be praying he can deliver once again.

Venue: Old Trafford – Saturday, September 12 – 12:30 ET (17:30 BST)

Match Odds: Manchester United 10/11 – Draw 12/5 – Liverpool 16/5

Match Preview

Manchester United host Liverpool in this weekends late kick off on Saturday. This is one of the biggest rivalries in the world, where we will see the two most successful English sides go head-to-head.

United come into this game with only one defeat in their last seven in the Premier League and have more confidence under Louis Van Gaal this season.

United have only lost two of their last 20 home games, which shows how difficult it will be for Liverpool to leave Old Trafford with all three points.

The United side should begin to settle now the transfer window has shut. David de Gea staying could see him return to the starting 11 and the squad can look to click into gear for the season.

Embed from Getty Images

Liverpool come into this game with only one win in their last seven away from home, they have had a difficult start to the new season but it seems the foundations are in place for a strong campaign for Brendan Rodgers side.

Despite their poor away form they have picked up seven out of a possible 12 points this campaign and will be looking to bounce back from a shock 3-0 home defeat to West Ham last time out.

A win in this one would do the Liverpool players confidence the world of good and get the fans buzzing as they love nothing more than beating their rivals.

Team News

Manchester United will be without Michael Carrick, as he pulled out of the England squad midweek with a calf injury. Phil Jones is set to return from the blood clot in his leg which has sidelined him for the last few games.

Liverpool could be without up to five players. Adam Lallana remains a doubt to feature this weekend with fellow midfielders Jordan Henderson and Joe Allen also unlikely to play. English duo Daniel Sturridge and Jon Flanagan are both recovering from operations and remain sidelined.

Key Points

Manchester United’s Form: W/W/D/L 

Liverpool’s Form: W/W/D/L

Key Stat: Liverpool have netted just twice so far this season, showing a lack of potency up top but they will be hoping Christian Benteke can cause United problems.

Key Player: Wayne Rooney – It has been an eventful week for the England and Manchester United captain as he helped his nation qualify for the European Championships next summer. Most notably he broke Sir Bobby Charlton’s record of all-time England scorer and we expect the striker to be the difference this weekend as he looks to net his first league goal of the season.

Manchester United 2-0 Liverpool – Manchester United to dominate and show they are a much stronger force this season against a Liverpool side who haven’t quite got going in front of goal this campaign.
