A classic at the Etihad

A classic at the Etihad

This could be an Etihad classic. City have bagged 50 goals in 12 home games, and have won 11 of those matches. However, Liverpool are now riding high at the summit of the EPL as they chase a first title in 24 years.

The Reds have scored 17 goals in their last four matches - with Luis Suarez bagging 10 of them. He may well score again, but City's home form, and the fact that they are unbeaten in four Etihad encounters against the Reds, suggests that they can secure a vital three points.

Prediction: Man City 2 Liverpool 1

Hull v Man United

Man United are unbeaten in their last nine away games in all competitions, so Hull's stellar home record will hold no fears for them.

Having been written off for the title following back-to-back home defeats against Newcastle and Everton, United now find themselves just eight points adrift of leaders Liverpool.

Hull are sure to make life difficult for them, having won five and drawn three of their nine matches at home in all competitions.

Prediction: Hull 1 Man United 2
