MOM Candidate - AggerLiverpool will be trying to keep up their excellent Premier League form when they visit the Etihad stadium on Sunday to face a Manchester City side that desperately need the points to keep up the pressure on leaders United in the title race.

Both of these teams will consider that they have each made progress since their last meeting at Anfield and the question is can Liverpool start to shore up their leaky and wobbly defence before Dzeko and Aguero come waltzing through?

I think this is going to be the game right there.

With Skrtel out of sorts and out of form and Coates showing that he really has not made enough progress to justify his hefty 7 Million price tag it is going to be a defensive pairing of Agger and the old stalwart Carragher that are going to be putting up the barricades.

Rodgers’ will need to provide both of his full backs Wisdom and Johnson with some midfield cover and so Enrique is likely to start with Downing pairing him up on the opposite flank.

I expect the midfield to be packed out with Gerrard, Lucas and Henderson taking the starting slots leaving Suarez to forage for himself and try to make something out of absolutely nothing.

That leaves the new 12 million man Daniel Sturridge probably kicking his heels on the bench which will not make him any happier than when he trudged off disconsolately after being subbed with twenty minutes or so to go against Arsenal.

The truth is that in the game against Arsenal, Liverpool were gifted a two goal head start by some awful Arsenal defending and when the home team found their rhythm in the second half it was all hands to the pump to keep them at bay.

Against City I don’t see Rodgers’ making the same mistake and he will take a slightly more cautious approach into this game.

We have a healthy stream of betting offers coming in for this game:

Money back on first person to score if Liverpool win the game – Ladbrokes.

I think you’d have to bet on Aguero or Dzeko for that one. Even If a Liverpool player does score it’s still unlikely that they will win this game.

Money back if Suarez scores first or last – Blue Square

This is a good bet – Suarez seems to score in every game he plays just lately so I definitely advise you to look this one up.

In the other betting markets:

For the straight win Man City are favourites at 17/20 with Liverpool at 3/1 and the draw is good value at 5/2

In the first player to score markets – Aguero, Tevez and Dzeko feature in the top three spots with Suarez in fourth so that tells you everything you need to know about the strike power that City bring into this game and Dzeko looks good value at 11/2 – but will he start the game?

Mancini has given him a good run recently but I don’t think he has done enough to maintain a starting spot. Tevez then is 5/1 for first player to score.

In the correct score markets I’m looking at City to win 2-1 which is 15/1 and City to win 3-2 is 25/1 £10 returns £150 and £250 respectively in those markets.

Man of the match betting? At Betvictor Daniel Agger is 20/1 to win that one. It’s going to be backs to the wall performance from Liverpool so it could well be a Liverpool defender that shines.

From a Liverpool fan perspective a red card for City would be nice (Balotelli has ruined that for future games!) and we are bound to get an offer for that which I’ll post up as soon as it comes in.

Daniel Agger is 20/1 to be man of the match at Betvictor - a £10 bet returns £210
