Premier League Preview: Manchester City v Liverpool | Thurs 26th December 17:30

A simply mouth-watering prospect; neutrals should expect a late Christmas gift as Manchester City put their impeccable home record on the line against a Liverpool side in scorching form.

Joe Hart looks to have reclaimed his number 1 spot back having started three of City’s last four

Just a point separates the pair, with the Premier League top spot feasibly up for grabs for today’s winner, if indeed there is one. And whilst City up to this point maintain a 100 per cent seasonal record at the Etihad, the nature of the Reds’ recent performances suggests only the bravest of punters will be indulging in match betting markets. Instead, backing a healthy amount of goals to punctuate the clash looks the wisest move, especially considering that the Citizens’ 17 league games this term have featured an incredible 71 total strikes. Meanwhile, no top-flight outfit has registered more times on the road than Liverpool, who have also netted on 22 occasions within their past four games all told. Luis Suarez leads the divisional goal charts with a ridiculous 19 goals from just 12 appearances, and Brendan Rodgers’ men must have a chance of getting something if the Uruguayan is at his electric best.
