Manchester City v Liverpool betting preview
Manchester City have suffered 3 consecutive defeats against LiverpoolMan City were unlucky to lose to Dortmund 1-0 in their first International Champions Cup game. It was their first friendly of the 2018/19 season, so improvements are expected. The usual curtain raiser, the Community Shield, is not so far - the Citizens will meet Chelsea on 5th August. As to direct encounters against Liverpool, Pep Guardiola's men have lost all three of their meetings with Jurgen Klopp's team in 2018, including the two Champions League quarter-final tie (1st and 2nd leg).
With several members of his squad on an extended leave, Pep Guardiola will be looking to give Leroy Sane plenty of minutes with the same applied to newly-signed Riyad Mahrez following his £60million transfer from Leicester City. The Spaniard will also look to give some game time to his youngsters, with Douglas Luiz, Jack Harrison, Lukas Nmecha, Eric Garcia, Brahim Diaz and Luke Bolton all expected to feature from the off. Anyway, it looks like the team is going to include players such as Joe Hart, Claudio Bravo, Bernardo Silva, Aymeric Laporte and Benjamin Mendy. Vincent Kompany is out through injury while Kevin De Bruyne, Raheem Sterling, Sergio Aguero, Nicolas Otamendi, Ederson, Kyle Walker, John Stones, David Silva, Gabriel Jesus, Danilo, Fernando and Fernandinho are not with the team.
Liverpool have almost all their key players available hereLiverpool will be looking to bounce back from a 3-1 opening game defeat in the ICC at the hands of Borussia Dortmund few days ago. Prior to that, the Reds beat 7-0 Chester in their first seasonal outing, then beat 3-2 Tranmere Rovers, drew 0-0 against Bury and managed to beat 2-0 Blackburn Rovers. Jurgen Klopp has much more options at the moment and we just have to see Liverpool as favourites under these circumstances.
The Merseysiders will be missing defender Joel Matip after he picked up an injury. He has joined Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain on the sidelines while the likes of Simon Mignolet, Dejan Lovren, Trent Alexander-Arnold, Jordan Henderson and Roberto Firmino are all on holiday. £62 million signing Naby Keita is set to feature following his much-anticipated arrival from RB Leipzig, alongside Fabinho and Xherdan Shaqiri, while goalkeeper Alisson Becker is not expected to play. Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane and Marko Grujic watched on from the sidelines last time out and they could play at some stage.
