Liverpool vs Manchester City Prediction | 16 OCTOBER, 2022
- Football: England, Premier League. Matchday 10
- Stadium: Anfield
- Time: 16.10.2022 18:30
The Reds welcome The Citizens on Sunday evening as the race for league dominance continues on Matchday 10. A slow start to the season sees Jurgen Klopp’s side as heavy underdogs for this fixture. Fifty encounters between the two show the Reds winning twenty-three, losing twelve, and tying it out on fifteen occasions. Things don’t look bright for the men in red; but then we ask, “What magic will Jurgen Klopp conjure this time?”
Liverpool had a swell time at Ibrox stadium in a match that ended seven goals to one (7-1), giving Rangers the worst thrashing of their lives. Mohammed Salah broke a new UEFA Champions League record by scoring the fastest ever hattrick in the history of the competition. Getting off the back of a memorable European victory, they challenge Manchester City; a team clear from league leaders Arsenal with a point.
Injuries would see Naby Keita (Muscle injury), Alex-Oxlade Chamberlain(Hamstring strain), Luis Diaz (Knee injury), Arthur Melo (Muscle injury), Joel Matip(Calf injury), Curtis Jones(Calf injury), and Trent Alexander Arnold (Ankle injury) off the play as they recover in due time.
With ten points from eight matches, they see themselves in borderline tenth position, far below a team of such prestige. Jurgen Klopp has faced a lot of obstacles this season, coupled with squad rotation and team fatigue but we know that Liverpool is sure to give their rivals a fight to the death.

Manchester City (2nd)
Bubbling in dazzling form this season, The Citizens travel to Anfield in hope of finally securing the top spot if Arsenal fails to convert the next fixture. After a humiliating FC Copenhagen five goals to nil in the first round, they went on to a goalless draw in the second round.
Injury lay-offs report John Stones (Hamstring strain) Kyle Walker (Groin Injury) and Benjamin Mendy who is involved in Investigations with the police.
Players to watch in the team for this fixture are the goal-poaching Erling Haaland, and dummy runner Phil Foden. With Erling Haaland already bagging fifteen goals for the team, it looks like Allison Becker may concede more goals.
