Liverpool Vs Manchester City is the ultimate battle in the Premier League title race since these two are the only teams who are deemed to challenge for the title this season
Liverpool is at the top of the table with 5 points clear and a game in hand from second-placed Leicester city and third-placed Chelsea. Meanwhile, Manchester City slipped to the fourth position after the Blues dominated Crystal Palace and the Foxes annihilated Arsenal but the Citizens do also have a game in hand.
Apart from their dominance in England, both the teams are also being considered as the best teams in Europe with the kind of form they possess. Moreover, any kind of result from this tie will shape the league dramatically.

But even if it ends up in a draw, Chelsea and Leicester City will be in a close contest for the league title but Liverpool will remain safe for a while at the top of the table.
Amidst all this, we analyze why Manchester City will win against Liverpool even though the match is at the Anfield tonight.
1. Manchester City’s superior midfield will give them an edge
In football, midfield battle is very essential and there is no doubt that Manchester City’s midfield options are far better than Liverpool’s squad. Although, Liverpool’s midfield is suitable to their game style as they provide security to defence behind instead of being creative.
Liverpool usually generates its creativity from the fullbacks, as Trent Alexander Arnold and Andy Robertson contribute heavily upfront and rest of the attacks are managed by the front three of Sadio Mane, Roberto Firmino and Mohamed Salah.
A disciplined structure by Jurgen Klopp but Manchester City’s midfield has the potential to nullify this system and make it restricted. Plus, Kevin De Bruyne and David Silva have the capability of splitting spaces, which can do the job for the Citizens.
