Liverpool vs Manchester City Preview, Prediction, Latest H2H record: Premier League 21/22, Gameweek 7

The Reds take on Pep Guardiola’s Sky Blues this weekend in what will be the latest addition in a host of enthralling match-ups between these two sides. And Alley Sport brings you the Liverpool vs Manchester City Preview, Prediction, Latest H2H record from this gameweek 7 encounter in the 2021/22 English Premier League season.

Liverpool vs Manchester City Preview

Both Liverpool and Manchester City have had epic title races recently and this season looks like it will be the same. The Reds lost the 2018/19 Premier League title by one point but then went on to beat the Citizens by a record margin to lift their first league title in thirty years in the very next campaign. Both teams have retained their spine from the past few seasons which is why they remain title favourites even now.

Liverpool are at the top of the league table and seem like they are there to stay. A recent defeat vs Brentford that saw them ship three goals does not take away the fact that they are still unbeaten in the league when no one else is. With 14 points from 6 games and no losses so far, it is understandable that Jurgen Klopp would want his team to go into the international break in good form.

The Citizens, as expected, are in and around the top of the table again after a massive win vs Chelsea last weekend. Their season was off to a poor start after they lost 1-0 to Tottenham Hotspur on opening day, but since then, have won 4 out of their five games, drawing another one against Southampton. With 13 points, they only trail table-toppers by one point and they have a chance to leapfrog them this weekend with a win.

Liverpool vs Manchester City Match Prediction

Liverpool are just too good especially against Man City in recent years but in the last six games, Pep seems to have shored up his defence against the Reds. Their attacking football is always complemented by Pep’s tendency to leave his defence open as they too like to attack Liverpool. And that is why we go with a 2-0 win for the current table toppers.
