Date: on the 03rd of January, 2019 (Thursday)
Match start: 21:00 (GMT+1)
Tournament: English Premier League.
On the 3rd of January will be held very interesting match which result will definitely influence on the championship destiny: Manchester City will host the leader of the championship Liverpool on Etihad Stadium.
The Citizens have lost two out of 3 last matches: home match to Crystal Palace with the score 2:3 and away match to Leicester with the score 1:2.
But to tell the truth, the last game of 2018 the team of Pep Guardiola has won over Southampton with the score 3:1 that should positively influence on the game against Liverpool. But, though MC is great in attack, we have to note some problems of Man City in defense.
The last match that Manchester City has spent without missed goals was held at the end of November.
And this can have a decisive impact in the game against Liverpool. Liverpool hasn’t lost any match in the EPL yet and in 9 last matches in a row the football players have won, having scored 15 goals in 5 last matches of the Championship and missed only 3 goals. Don’t forget about the fight that has happened on Anfield where Liverpool has destroyed Arsenal with the score 5:1.
We doubt that in this meeting of two attacking teams the goalless draw will be recorded, bearing in mind the problems of Citizens in defense and powerful attack of Liverpool.
City won’t be playing in defense on home stadium and will surely score one goal.
