Welcome to our Manchester City vs Liverpool preview, prediction and head to head analysis. Manchester City are on top of the league by goal difference. A slip up here might allow Arsenal the joint league leaders on points to go top. The defeat at home by West Ham was a shock and something they will not want to repeat. However their last Premier league match ended in a tame no-score draw at Villa and they will have to do better today. Liverpool are in 10th position in the league. It looked good for their new manager when they defeated Chelsea, but the loss to Crystal Palace at Anfield brought them back to earth with a bump. They need to do better and to get back to winning ways.
