Manchester City win

Manchester City continue their pursuit of leaders Arsenal, eight points adrift with one game left.

Football “citizens” compare favorably with players with perfect balance. In terms of expected goals scored (xg = 2.07) and conceded (xga = 0.8) goals, they are at the top of the Premier League. The Sky Blues head into the upcoming fixture with a 10-match unbeaten streak across all tournaments.

It is worth noting that the main star of the team, Erling Holland (28+5), did not participate in the matches of the national team, treating injuries during the international break.

Liverpool have recently significantly improved the organization of the game, thanks to which in the 26th round they were able to beat Manchester United (7: 0). However, in the final match against Bournemouth (0-1) he unexpectedly broke his 5-match unbeaten streak.

It is worth noting that the Reds do not differ in the balance in their game. In terms of expected goals scored (xg = 1.83) they are in the top three, and in terms of conceded 1.33 xg they are close to the league average.

Liverpool will have staffing problems in the upcoming match. The participation of Nunes, Gomez, Diaz, Beycetic and Alcantara is in doubt.

I think Manchester City will not miss the chance to make up for Arsenal and will be able to take advantage of Liverpool’s problems.
