Liverpool face Man City challenge
In round 13 of the English Premier League, Liverpool will face one of its main challengers for the Champions League placings Manchester City.
Both teams are coming off draws at home and if the match is a draw then it will be City's sixth draw in a row.
Man City hasn't lost in the last six matches in the league but it has only won once.
On the other hand the Anfield based outfit has lost three matches in the last six and won just two.
I think whichever team loses this fixture it will be a very significant loss.
Here is the rest of the stats after 12 rounds:
|Failed to score||2||1|
|Ave. goals scored||2.3||1.9|
|Ave. goals conceded||1.5||1.3|
|Biggest win||Liverpool 6 - 1 Hull||Blackburn 0 - 2 Man City|
Man City 4 - 2 Arsenal
Man City 3 - 1 West Ham
|Biggest loss||Liverpool 1 - 3 Aston Villa|
Chelsea 2 - 0 Liverpool
Fulham 3 - 1 Liverpool
|Man United 4 - 3 Man City|
|Ave. goals scored||3.2||2.6|
|Ave. goals conceded||1.0||1.6|
|Ave. goals scored||1.3||1.3|
|Ave. goals conceded||2.0||1.0|
I cannot believe that Man City has only lost one match and yet they are in 6th position on the table. The draws are killing their season and to me it just shows that the team doesn't have the cutting edge to finish off teams and win matches. They have to beat Liverpool because another draw would be disastrous.
Yes Jason, five draws in row hasn't helped City because that's 10 points lost. But one of the draws was against Villa which maybe was a good result I think. Lets see what happens at Anfield. Thanks.
