Manchester City v. Liverpool
Date: Saturday, November 25
Time: 7:30 a.m. ET
TV channel: None
Manchester City: -130
Moneyline pick: Draw +330
City are the favorites to come away with the win at home, despite missing several key players to injury. The Citizens will be without Kevin De Bruyne and Mateo Kovacic, while Erling Haaland, Ederson, John Stones, Nathan Ake, and Sergio Gomez are all listed as doubtful ahead of Saturday morning’s clash.
The league leaders are coming off a wild 4-4 draw with Chelsea in Matchday 12 that saw youngster Cole Palmer with a dramatic stoppage time penalty to secure a point for the Blues. Haaland bagged a brace on the day, bringing his season total to 13 goals as he leads the league in scoring.
Liverpool logged a 3-0 win over Brentford in their last outing thanks to a brace from Mohamed Salah and a third score from Diogo Jota, bringing them to within one point of Manchester City. A win would see the Reds jump into first place while a loss would widen the gap between City and Liverpool.
Man City are extremely good at home, but Liverpool will look to take advantage of their injury crisis and leave with a positive result. I’m backing the Reds to grind out a draw, especially if Haaland doesn’t see the field due to his ankle injury.
