Bet Liverpool Because…

The last time that Liverpool faced Man City, they destroyed them 4 to 1. In that match, Liverpool controlled possession from the outset. Man City couldn’t get the ball out of their half. It was a terrible showing by the favored team while Liverpool played about as well as they could under new manager Jurgen Klopp. Liverpool was so devastating that they held a 3 to 0 lead by halftime.   

Bet Manchester City Because…

Man City has been unstoppable in the Capital One Cup. Sure, Everton pushed Man City in the semi-finals but the 4 to 3 win was an aggregate victory. Man City actually won the match on Jan. 27 by a 3 to 1 goal score. Man City has been playing excellent soccer throughout the tournament. There’s no reason to believe that they’ll take their foot off of the gas pedal against Liverpool on Sunday. Revenge also has to be a factor for Man City.   

Expert Pick & Final Score Prediction

Man City may be out for revenge, but it doesn’t appear that they’ll get it on Sunday. Liverpool appears poised to take it to Man City from the outset just like they did this past November. Man City rides a 3 match losing streak into this battle. They lost 1 to 3 to Leicester on Feb. 6. They lost 1 to 2 to Tottenham on Feb. 14. Chelsea obliterated Man City 5 to 1 on Feb. 21.

Will Man City have what it takes to beat a Liverpool team that dominated them the last time that the 2 teams faced each other only 7 days after a drubbing from Chelsea? It’s hard for me to see them doing that. Another note is that Liverpool right-back Nathaniel Clyne appears to know exactly what his team must do in order to defend against Man City’s quality scorers.

Style means a lot in soccer. Liverpool’s defense might have the perfect style to counter Man City’s offense. I like Liverpool at over even money odds to get it done in regulation on Sunday. 

My final score prediction is Liverpool 2, Man City 1.
