All the best odds from Paddy Power ahead of Sunday's Premier League clash...
A clinical display in the 4-1 win over Southampton made it five games without a loss for Manchester City as they begin to hit their stride again at the perfect time.
Manuel Pellegrini’s men face a tough test with a trip to Anfield to play table-topping Liverpool who have won their last nine league games.
At a ground where City haven’t won since 2003, the Blues are unbeaten in their last three visits and have come away with a point in five of their last six visits. A draw at 12/5 would certainly suit the visitors more than the hosts.
Three of the last four meetings between the sides have finished 2-2, which pays out at 10/1.
However, the 15/8 on Manchester City to win is difficult to ignore, especially if Sergio Aguero returns to the side after missing five games with injury. Not that City struggled to score goals in his absence, hitting the net fifteen times in those five games.
City have failed to win only one of the 19 games in which the Argentine striker has scored his 26 goals. Aguero is 5/1 to score first and 13/5 to score anytime. If he does, then the 15/8 on City may be made to look a bargain.
Aguero is far from the only goal threat with Yaya Toure having his most successful goalscoring season ever with 17 goals in the league and 21 in all competitions. He can be backed at 9/1 to score first and 13/5 to score anytime. He scored in this fixture last season so there’s certainly some value there.
Edin Dzeko has three in his last three games and two goals in his last three appearances against Liverpool. He’s 11/2 to score first if he starts and 11/2 to score last if he comes off the bench.
