Worth Mentioning

Both sides met for the last time on October 16, 2022, and the outcome of that encounter was a win for Liverpool, with a score of 1:0 at home. The Reds are currently on a two-game winning streak and has not been defeated in four H2H clashes. In the last 10 direct matches, being the host turned out to be very beneficial. The home team registered four wins and did not suffer any losses in eight of the ten. Of their last five meetings, four resulted in over 2.5 goals, and four had both teams scoring. In that period, Manchester City have not managed to keep a single clean sheet, while Liverpool have not conceded in one of the matches. Most of the previous matches saw plenty of end-to-end action, as the two sides scored 19 times in total over the course of the last five clashes.

City’s last game was on November 12th, when losing 1:2 to Brentford at home in a Premier League encounter. Prior to that, the team was on a streak of four consecutive victories and had not seen defeat for six games. Playing at home has proven to be very beneficial in Manchester City’s last ten matches. The hosting side enjoyed wins six times and managed to stay undefeated in eight meetings. Pep Guardiola’s team finished in draws in only two of the previous 10 meetings. Out of the last five Manchester City encounters, three produced over 2.5 goals and three witnessed goals at both ends. Within this timeframe, City were able to keep two clean sheets, and at least one goal was scored in all of the team’s matches. The statistics show that the team’s most recent five meetings averaged 2.60 goals.

Liverpool’s last match was against Southampton, and it finished in a 3:1 win at home. The club is currently unbeaten in four games, recording one draw and three wins in the process. Playing at home turned out to be of little help across the ten previous Liverpool encounters, as the hosting party recorded five victories and the traveling sides registered four triumphs. The result was a draw in just one of the outfit’s most recent 10 games. Three of the team’s last five matches featured over 2.5 goals, with three featuring goals from both ends of the field. Liverpool’s defensive efforts proved enough to limit the opposition to no goals in two of these clashes, and they failed to score on their own in just one. Over the course of the team’s previous five outings, the sides scored an average of 2.4 goals.
