Liverpool v Man City – MASSIVE !!!!
[dropcap]M[/dropcap]My negativity about Arsenal was rewarded when the DRAW bet obliged yesterday for a profit on the day of 32.5 points – that’s a little more like it.
Can’t wait for this afternoon’s LIVERPOOL v MAN CITY titanic clash (1.37pm SKY).
It promises to be a great game, quite likely the title decider, but that doesn’t necessarily mean it will deliver.
There are two forces at play. The fear of losing v the bravery of winning – and the former could well dictate.
Whilst Man City have games in hand – there’s nothing they can do if Liverpool win today and their remaining matches. Liverpool will be the winners. Surprise winners certainly, but their resurgence has been a breath of fresh air.
These two teams drew 2-2 THREE times in a row since their Carling Cup clash in January 2012 and Man City won the reverse fixture this season.

Liverpool have now won 13 of their last 14 home games – dropping just four points in that sequence. But as strong as they have been at home that is countered by Man City’s away form. City have not lost in their last 10 away league matches.
Man City will be suited by the return of top scorer Sergio Aguero who is back after missing five games due to a hamstring injury.
Liverpool are likely to come out of the blocks quicker and Man City are likely to have to be strong in defence in the first 10 minutes.
Tough to call, but like yesterday the DRAW looks safest.
Goals seem highly likely. Rodgers’ side have failed to score in just two of their 33 league matches.
