4 Reasons Why Liverpool Will Beat Manchester City

I might be playing with fire making this claim as Manchester City are perhaps the most in-form team in Europe right now. They are not only unbeaten in the league, but are often unplayable and have only dropped points twice.

However, their next task is Liverpool away from home, a place where Pep Guardiola’s men have lost in their last four outings. Liverpool might be without Philippe Coutinho this time, and his departure might psychologically hurt them, but we can never count out Jurgen Klopp and his Reds.

The Merseyside outfit will take on the Etihad outfit tomorrow and here are 4 reasons why they will beat Manchester City.

#1 History

I know that once the players are out there on the pitch, nothing else maters—especially not history. What happens on the pitch will determine the outcome of the game; it is as simple as that. I am also aware that someday, Manchester City’s losing streak at Anfield will be over.

But Sunday won’t be that day.

Indeed, with the form that City are in, the only thing that can stop here is the psychological hurdle that comes up with the name of Anfield. The players will have a block in their minds about their unbeaten run in the league clashing against their losing streak at Anfield—and this might make the latter prevail once again as they beat Manchester City.

#2 Klopp’s tendency to beat the better teams

One of the things that set Jurgen Klopp apart from the likes of Jose Mourinho, Arsene Wenger and Mauricio Pochettino is his tendency to beat bigger and better teams. It is for this reason that the eccentric German is often labelled as the Robin Hood.

In his 24 games against top 6 of the Premier League, he has 9 wins, 3 losses and 12 draws, gaining a total of 39 points—which is the highest among any managers in the top 6. He might not have won against a top 6 side this season yet, but Man City could be his first.

#3 Liverpool are in good form themselves

This a bit hypocritical of me to consider Liverpool’s good form while Manchester City are the most in-form team in Europe, but playing at Anfield makes the Reds somewhat unbeatable. Indeed, Jurgen Klopp and his men are yet to be beaten at home this season.

Many clubs have come and tried, but none could go away with more than a point. And now, Manchester City will try their best to continue their winning streak. The Merseyside outfit are also on a 4-game winning streak.

City’s bad record at Anfield merges with Liverpool’s great form at home, and Liverpool could beat Manchester City

#4 A point to prove

Philippe Coutinho has left them for new pastures. They are now without their star man, and they are in a position of weakness. And now, as a result, they have a point to proof—that Liverpool FC are not weak.

And what better way to prove it than to beat the yet undefeated Manchester City? The moral of the players should be down, but they have a point to prove—and that should lift their spirits and help them beat Manchester City
