Manchester City’s recent Premier League record against Liverpool is quite woeful. Not since 2014 have City beaten their rivals from Merseyside, a 3-1 win at the Etihad Stadium, in the league. Since then it is four defeats on the bounce, including a 1-0 loss earlier this season at Anfield.
We do have last year’s Capital One Cup final victory over Liverpool to fondly remember, a game that ended as a draw after extra time before Wembley hero Willy Caballero inspired City to the last trophy of the Manuel Pellegrini era.
However, there are reasons to worry going into tomorrow’s game, given the hoodoo the hard-pressing Liverpool side have over City in the league of late – but here is one stat that may encourage Blues:
Sergio Aguero has scored in all four of his Premier League games for Manchester City against Liverpool at the Etihad Stadium (4 games, 4 goals).
Aguero scored in the harrowing 4-1 defeat last season, 3-1 win in 2014, 2-2 draw early in 2013, and 3-0 victory at the beginning of 2012 during his first season with the Blues.
Kun is almost certain to start tomorrow with Gabriel Jesus’ continuing absence through injury and Kelechi Iheanacho almost never starting games for Pep Guardiola’s side of late. And let’s hope he can keep up this record against Liverpool – a hat-trick would be nice!
