Updated Friday, 13th April 2007
This week FootyMad's match preview focuses on the game between Manchester City and Liverpool at 15:00 on Saturday 14th April 2007 in the Premiership.
Man City prepare to entertain Liverpool at City of Manchester Stadium on Saturday afternoon, needing to improve on a poor record between the sides. The visitors have won 31 of the 76 previous games, with the Sky Blues winning just 26.
The most recent encounter between these two sides at City of Manchester Stadium was just last season, in November 2005, with Liverpool inflicting a narrow 0-1 defeat upon the Sky Blues in a Premiership match.

Recent respective form guides
Manchester City's dreadful home form has resulted in just 1 victory and 1 draw from their last six played. Sky Blues have conceded a disappointing 8 goals in this period, and managed to convert only 3 of their own chances.
Liverpool's away form is none too clever either, tasting just one defeat in their last six, and picking up four good wins. The games have constituted a decent return of 10 goals for the Reds, and 3 goals against.
Man City see themselves just below half way in the Barclays Premiership, showing a record of 40 points from their 32 games played so far, Liverpool sit in a healthy 3rd in the league, and have picked up 60 points from their 32 games.
