PLACE- IT: Go for goals in Liverpool Vs City game, United returns to winning ways

Nile Post News



The Premier League just got better. What’s there to discuss when Liverpool play Manchester City as Jose Mourinho gets to be the nemesis to himself. Has Pellegrini finally recovered to find a path for West Ham? Anyway, Burnley found their first win late on in the season and by the look of things they look ready for another this weekend.

But, it will be an affair of Who gets to lose first on Sunday as Liverpool host Manchester City who claimed top spot (on GD) after the Reds were held away at the Stamford Bridge.

Liverpool suffered a 1-0 defeat to Napoli without even managing a shot on target in Naples. However, they remain unbeaten in the league but their performance has been gradually slipping for the last three matches.

Leaders, City sit above Liverpool on goal difference (18 v 12) and have been having a wonderful run since that shock draw away at Watford on match day 3.

Both Benjamin Mendy and Kevin de Bruyne are back to full fitness and could feature on Sunday. However, the Cityzens have a poor record at Anfield and last won there in the Premier League in 2003 and have conceded seven goals in their last two visits.

Guardiola has suffered more defeats against Klopp than any other manager in his career (8) but the fact that Mohamed Salah’s form has dipped of late coupled with the injury scare to Naby Keita (although he is fit to play) mean Liverpool will need more than just the twelfth player at Anfield.

Prediction: factor determinant – Law of averages. Place It safe –  go for both teams to score. But trust Manchester City to win at Anfield.

Julien lopetegui must be a worried man after failing to convince he can begin from where Zidane stopped at Madrid 

Who would you trust Lopetegui anymore? The Real Madrid man has been accused of settling rotation at the expense of serenity and he is said to be the problem to Real Madrid’s dismal run in recent times that has seen them drop points at CSKA Moscow, Atletico Madrid and Sevilla.

It’s been a difficult moment for the former la Roja manager, but, it’s not the first time the three-time consecutive European Champions a losing a game in the Group stages.

They should recover and win against Deportivo Leganes this Saturday.

Away from los blancos, the Blaugrana on the other side who have flattered to deceive are away at Valencia on Sunday and this will be the moment to wrap-up define what we could have in two weeks after the break.

Unlike Real Madrid, Barcelona got back to winning ways in the Champions League midweek, but despite taking just two points from the last available nine in the league and will continue life without Samuel Umtiti, Sergi Roberto but Luis Suarez should be available for the Sunday game.

Valencia are still unbeaten at home in LaLiga, but Marcelino’s side are in need of three points this weekend to begin their climb back into the top four (currently 14). They have drawn all of their opening three matches at Mestalla, falling short against Atletico Madrid, Real Betis and Celta Vigo respectively in the league alone.

Prediction: FC Barcelona have learned to concede while Valencia have not scored enough but learned to defend well. Expect Valencia to hold ground at home but safe to settle for both teams to score – for a score draw

Niko Kovac is the other manager in a pit-situation after Bayern run into difficult moment and needs to get things turned around, ‘starting now’ – Getty Images

Friday was all about how Claudio Pizarro was in light to become just the fourth outfield player to feature in in the Bundesliga at the age of 40.

But now, Game Week 7 has a lot to offer as once again Dortmund occupy top spot, just like it was last season by match day seven.

A 3-0 win at home to Monaco is enough to bring BVB into the picture ahead of their home game against Augsburg.

Expect Dortmund to win

In the South, all is bang and chill as Defending Champions, Bayern Munich who are a point away from leaders Borussia Dortmund (following that 2-0 loss to Die Alte Dame) embark on the road to recovery.

Their recent form has been precarious and drawing with Ajax, 1-1 at the Allianz Arena means new manager, Kovac has hit a dead-end. How he gets out of there starts in tomorrow’s main event against Borussia Monchengladbach.

The Bavarians have not won a game in their last three straight competitive matches. The wounded Bavarians remain without Kinglsey Coman, Rafinha and Corentin Tolisso while Mats Hummels and Leon Goretzka could be available from the bench.

Gladbach are just two-points behind Bayern after a very solid start but have only picked up two points in their three away games so far and this remains Kovac’s only chance to turn things around.

Predict: Expect Bayern Munich to dominate the game and for a win without conceding
