The top spot in the English Premier League standings will be on the line when Liverpool host reigning champion Manchester City in the Premier League’s match of the year on Sunday at Anfield in Liverpool.

Why you should back Liverpool 

The Reds have been nearly unbeatable at Anfield recently. In 51 Premier League matches the last three seasons, they’ve lost only once at home. In 13 home matches this season, they are 11-2-0. Liverpool also have lost only one of their past 20 meetings with Manchester City at Anfield, winning 13 of the matchups and drawing six.

In addition, Darwin Nunez is in terrific form for the Reds. The 24-year-old from Uruguay has scored six goals in his last eight Premier League appearances and also added a brace in the team’s 5-1 victory over Sparta Prague in a Europa League round of 16 match on Thursday. He is the only Premier League player to average more than five shots per 90 minutes this season. See which team to pick here.

Why you should back Manchester City

Erling Haaland enters Sunday’s showdown on a goal-scoring tear. In his last eight matches across all competitions, the 23-year-old Norwegian striker has scored 10 goals. Also, in the most recent matchup against Liverpool, Haaland scored the Citizens’ only goal in the 1-1 draw, becoming the fastest player in Premier League history to score 50 career goals (48 games).

Haaland and the rest of the Manchester City attack will face a Liverpool defense that may be without Ibrahima Konaté. The star center back’s status for Sunday remains in doubt after he was forced to leave the Reds’ Europa League victory on Thursday over Sparta Prague early. Konaté’s absence would be a significant one as he has spearheaded a defense that ranks second in the league in goals allowed (25). See which team to pick here.
