He’s scored 36 goals in his last 34 games for Liverpool in all competitions and 29 in 26 Premier League matches in 2013.I can’t see Man City losing but Liverpool might have enough to force a first draw of the season at the Etihad.RECOMMENDED BET (1-10 points)5 points DRAW at around 3/1 with Star SportsWhat’s your view?
