It was a dramatic weekend at the top of the Premier League, with plenty of late twists to the games as Liverpool and Manchester City scored very late winners.

Manchester United were once fabled for their crucial goals in “Fergie” time, but these days they are becoming something of a speciality for Jurgen Klopp's Liverpool.

Event # 1 – English Premier League – Liverpool vs Manchester City

All eyes will be on Anfield when the EPL's two top sides, Liverpool and Manchester City, face each other in a delectable super Sunday matchup.

City go to Anfield knowing that they have not beaten Liverpool at Anfield in the Premier League since 2003. The Reds came from behind to beat Aston Villa at Villa Park last weekend, ensuring that the team retained their six-point advantage over Pep Guardiola's Manchester City.

Liverpool are eyeing their first Premier League trophy since 1990 and are sure to be fighting tooth and nail to avoid defeat to the champions. This isn't a title decoder, its only November after all, but a win for Liverpool would make them even stronger favourites to lift the title in May.

They go into this game six points clear of second-place City and a victory would stretch that advantage to nine points. Liverpool have garnered 31 points from 11 Premier League games so far this season, in the English top-flight history, only Tottenham in 1960/61 (33 points) have had more points at this stage of any campaign.

This could be the year the Reds deliver that elusive title and it would be deserving given the style of football they have been playing for the last three seasons.

Coming back when staring defeat in the face shows just how much character and belief they have in the side this season. A couple of years ago, the Reds would have lost that game at Villa Park last weekend, but under Jurgen Klopp's leadership they are relentless.

On the other hand, Manchester City head to Anfield knowing they must win this massive clash to close the gap between themselves and the Reds if they are to have a realistic chance of retaining their title. Having lost some key defenders this season, it is hardly surprising that the Manchester City ballers have struggled to maintain the high standard they set last season.

That said, they are still within touching distance of the unbeaten Liverpool and know fully well a win at Anfield will close the gap to just three points. They have scored 34 times in 11 games this season, nine more than Liverpool and more than double Manchester United's total so far this season, which makes them a dangerous and deadly attacking force.

KEY STATS

Liverpool — unbeaten in seven Premier League games in which they have conceded the first goal, winning six of those and drawing one – they have won more points from losing positions (10) than any other side in Europe's top five leagues this season.

Manchester City — scored in each of their last 16 away Premier League games.

However, they have lost 14 of their 20 meetings at Liverpool during the modern top-flight era, their sole victory was a 2-1 win in May 2003.

City have conceded 40 league goals at Anfield since 1992 and only scored 17, having lost each fixture since 2013/14 — despite ending each term with a superior league standing.

Both sides — Both teams have scored in all of Liverpool's home Premier League games this season. While four of the last six City away games have seen both teams find the back of the net.

The betting tip. Liverpool win – with both teams scoring.
