HUGE! Bookmakers Slash Odds On Liverpool Winning The Title After This Incident

Manchester City have been dealt a body blow as their Belgian midfielder Kevin De Bruyne has suffered a serious knee injury in training. The full extent of the injury is not yet known but rumours are doing the round that it will take 2-4 months for the 27-year-old to recover. As a result of this, Liverpool‘s odds for winning the title has been slashed as the bookmakers feel that City will struggle slightly to get favourable results without their talismanic man in midfield.

The Reds odd were set at 5.0 and now after De Bruyne’s injury, it has come down to 4.3. Many are of the opinion that the Merseyside club will be their biggest challenger as they had a fruitful summer. Even last season, Liverpool were one of the few teams who were able to beat Manchester City as they won three games out of the four they played.

De Bruyne was quite easily the stand out player for the Citizens as he kept on setting up goals for the likes of Sergio Aguero and Raheem Sterling on a platter. Losing out on him will be a big miss, but given the arsenal, Pep Guardiola has, one would expect the Citizens to come out of this adversity.

De Bruyne wasn’t part of the first game as he joined the squad late after the World Cup. Even with Belgium, he showcased his class as they achieved their best ever finish. Guardiola will hope that someone like Bernardo Silva will be able to step up after the serious injury to De Bruyne.

Liverpool will have to bring consistency to their game if they want to challenge Guardiola’s side. One never likes to see a player of De Bruyne’s calibre get injured but we expect City to see through this tough time as they have ample strength on their bench.
