Liverpool are preparing to host Manchester City in the Premier League on Sunday, February 7. The Reds are currently 4th in the league table with 40 points, meanwhile, City are leading the league table with 47 points and a game in hand.

Ahead of the game, BBC football expert Mark Lawrenson has stated his prediction.

“Manchester City last won at Anfield in 2003, and since then they have lost 13 out of 19 games there in all competitions.

“Sunday is obviously a great chance for City to end that poor run, but it is Liverpool who need the points more because they have slipped off the pace at the top of the table.

“I don’t think either side will go all-out to win it, though. I’m expecting it to be a bit cagier than that.

“What worries me more about Liverpool is their inconsistency. They had a couple of poor results at the start of the year, before winning comfortably at Tottenham and West Ham.

“I thought they had turned the corner and were looking their usual selves, then came this week’s defeat and poor performance against Brighton. That was a more perplexing result than when they lost at home to Burnley, and they can’t afford to play like that again against City.”

Lawrenson’s score prediction: 1-1
