David Silva Tipped To Return As Manchester City Face Liverpool Test

David Silva Tipped To Return As Manchester City Face Liverpool Test”

We are less than halfway through the January transfer window and there have already been major incomings and outgoings at Liverpool.

But to do that City must end their wretched run at Anfield, where they are without a win since 2003, a run of 16 matches in all competitions.

The sides who have most troubled Manchester City this season are those who have sat deep and conceded possession to Pep Guardiola's slick Premier League leaders. Below you can find our betting advice for this match.

Liverpool have welcomed back the duo of Mo Salah and Daniel Sturridge back into the first team after both the players spent time in the sidelines due to injury.

Tottenham striker Harry Kane won the player's equivalent for December, his two hat-tricks helping the club to four wins and a draw. Fortunately for Man City, Guardiola manages like each game is his last, and the club won't lose sight of its goals by overlooking any opponent.

As for Man City, Pep Guardiola nearly lost their first match of the season recently during a 0-0 draw at Crystal Palace. I think we hit it off from the first game and after that we did not really lose.

Guardiola added: "It's not necessary to say the quality of Alexis, everyone knows how good he is".

"Sometimes you try things and they come off". Antonio Conte has prepared many a team to counter an attacking juggernaut to a successful degree, and he'll have his hands full with trying to do so for a second time this season. Is it simply a coincidence?

In a usual season they would be in the title shake-up (their 44 points at this stage would have put them top in 2015/16), but given City's dominance, they are having to settle for a position amongst the also-rans in the race for the Champions League spots.

Liverpool, who also ended the game with 10 men after Skrtel went off injured with no substitutions left, claimed victory when Dirk Kuyt struck in stoppage time.

Their first meeting: City eased to a 3-1 home win, though Alexandre Lacazette's 65th-minute goal pulled Arsenal within one before Gabriel Jesus secured the points.

But despite the team's tacit attitude to the league, they faltered in key moments across every other competition - losing out to Middlesbrough in the League Cup, Manchester United in the FA Cup and Chelsea in the UEFA Champions League.

Virgil van Dijk has told Sky Sports that his world-record price tag does not make him "nervous" and he considers Liverpool's £75 million spend on him to be a "compliment".
