Manchester City vs Liverpool
England – Premier League
Date: Sunday, 10 April 2022
Kick-off at 16:30 UK/ 17:30 CET
Venue: Etihad Stadium.
This is going to be the game of the season. The two title-favorites, separated by a single point at the top, are going against each other, in this final stretch of the campaign. Whoever clinches the win here, will most probably run away with the English crown as well.
The Citizens are the defending champions, and are in possession of the first spot. They are also the defending champions, and have had the best defense of all teams in the competition.
It also deserves to be mentioned that they are at home, where they will be vociferously cheered by the home crowd, in anticipation of the title.
Meanwhile, based on recent form alone, Liverpool might be the best team in the world at the moment. They are on a long winning streak, and are scoring goals at a superb rate. They also have the best offense in the Premier League.
As these two take on each other, sparks are sure to fly. Count on either to be careful at the first, and to not make too many mistakes. The clash might get out of hand for both, towards the end. But expect disciplined defense from both at the beginning.

Manchester City vs Liverpool Prediction & Analysis
The Citizens recorded a 0-2 win on the road the last match-day, against Burnley. Then they followed it up with a 1-0 win at home against Atleti, in the Champions League.
They have also kept clean sheets in six of their former ten appearances at home, and they have lost just once here since October.
On the other hand, Liverpool registered a 2-0 win at home the past game week, against Watford. They had also won 17 of their previous 18 fixtures, and they are on a nine-match winning streak on the road.
As these two titans lock horns each other in this potential title-decider, expect a fierce but, low-scoring affair – at least in the first half.
Key Stats for Betting
- Pep Guardiola’s men are the only team to have conceded fewer than 20 goals in the competition.
