Match Summary

With seven rounds left of the Premier League (PL) season, Manchester City welcome newly-crowned champions Liverpol to the Etihad. Goals and cards look a possibility if the last six PL H2Hs are anything to go - there's been an average of 4.5 yellow cards and 3.5 goals per meeting across that period!

City have won six of their last seven PL home matches (D1), scoring at least twice in all seven games, whilst winning four of them 'to nil' and covering a -1.5 handicap. City games have averaged 3.55 total goals per PL match so far (any venue), with 74.19% of their overall matches featuring over 2.5 goals, and 48.39% seeing over 3.5.

Liverpool travel here without a win or even a goal in four straight competitive away matches (D1, L3), although their 0.6 goals conceded on average per PL road fixture is unrivalled in the league.

The visitors might rely on historical momentum though. Since Chelsea lost at West Bromwich in 2015, newly-crowned PL champions have gone W8, D2, LO during the remainder of the season. Furthermore, Liverpool may gain motivation from the fact they are still gunning for five different PL records: most points, most wins, most home wins, away wins, and biggest win margin (in points).

Players to watch: Kevin de Bruyne (MCI) has three goals in four competitive matches since the restart - two were penalties. Meanwhile, Mohamed Salah (LIV) has four goals in eight matches against City, and hunts his third Golden Boot award ina row.

Stat attack: Just one of City's last six competitive matches saw both teams score. City have scored at least one first-half goal in three straight PL home matches and the two most recent home H2Hs.

Liverpool have gone on to win all 21 PL matches in which they led at half-time.
