Manchester City take on Liverpool at Anfield on Sunday and according to Michael Owen, it’s his former side who are likely to pick up all three points.

City go into this key encounter at the back of a 2-0 loss to PSG in the Champions League whereas Liverpool thumped 5 goals past Porto in the same competition.

And according to the pundit, Liverpool ooze a different class in such big games which is why the home side are expected to come out on top.

He wrote for BetVictor: “That was a strange performance from Liverpool against Brentford. They scored three and could have scored more, but to concede three was alarming. I didn’t see that coming and Jurgen Klopp will have been furious at his side.

“The response in Porto was emphatic though, to go there and score five is an outstanding performance.

“City showed just why they are Champions with that win against Chelsea last week. It’s a rare occasion when City enter a game as underdogs, so to beat a Chelsea side who were looking formidable is a huge statement of intent. They also played well in the defeat to PSG on Tuesday but need to be more clinical.

“Liverpool have an outstanding record at Anfield against City. City’s win at Anfield last season was their first win at Anfield since 2003 and there’s been some famous wins for the Reds in that time. I always fancy Liverpool in these big games so it’s no surprise I’m predicting a 2-1 Liverpool win here!”

Will Liverpool pick up all three points vs Man City?

Man City might have lost to PSG in midweek but they were without a doubt the better side on the night. It’s just that they failed to convert their chances.

Liverpool, on the other hand, looked really shaky in defence against Brentford and if players like Van Dijk and Matip cannot get their act together quickly enough then Man City will show absolutely no mercy.

To make matters worse Alexander-Arnold has been ruled out for this game and it’s the same area where Jack Grealish is going to operate in. If the substitute right-back fails to come up with an A-class performance then City are just going to overload that side of the pitch and breach the Liverpool defence with the utmost east.
