Manchester City vs Liverpool Betting Tips: Sterling and Jota star in 60/1 Bet Builder

A Premier League six-pointer takes place on Sunday when Manchester City host champions Liverpool.
Defeat for either team would not be a disaster at this early stage in the season but it would give a huge boost to the winner, both in terms of the table as well as on a psychological level.
Previous editions of this fixture have seen plenty of action, with 29 goals being scored in the last 10 renewals in all competitions, and Sunday’s clash should be no different.
Using bet365’s Bet Builder tool, which allows users to put multiple selections from the same match into one bet, our tipster has come up with a 60/1 (61.0) bet: Raheem Sterling and Diogo Jota to score, Joe Gomez and Kyle Walker to be carded.
With Gabriel Jesus having only just returned from injury, Pep Guardiola may continue to play Sterling as the most advanced player and this should give him plenty of chance to add to his already impressive goal tally.
The former Liverpool man has scored five times in 10 starts this season and found the net when these sides last met back in July, so looks a prime candidate to strike again on Sunday against a depleted Reds defence.
Also in form is Jota after his hat-trick against Atalanta in midweek to make it seven goals for the season, having also scored the winning goal in Liverpool’s last two Premier League outings.
The Portuguese has shown no signs of needing to settle in at Anfield and will be brimming with confidence ahead of this trip to the Etihad Stadium.
In terms of bookings, Walker actually has a very impressive disciplinary record for Man City, picking up only 10 cautions in 100 Premier League appearances for the club.
However, his most recent yellow cards have come against Liverpool, Tottenham and Manchester United, and Sadio Mane will no doubt provide another tough test for the right-back.
Finally, Gomez has stepped up admirably since the season-ending injury to Virgil van Dijk but is generally liable for a yellow card, having been booked seven times last season – more than any other Red.
One of those was against City in the 4-0 loss back in July and the array of tricky attackers possessed by Guardiola’s team means the threat of a caution is always there for defenders.
