Liverpool vs Man City

Manchester City have annexed the Capital One Cup by beating Liverpool over the weekend and they now have a chance to put their Premier League title charge back on track against the same opponent. This match will be played at the Anfield on Wednesday, March 2 and we have our thoughts and betting tip below.

Call it a quirky piece of fate that Liverpool have the opportunity to extract immediate revenge on City. A win could boost the Reds to as high as seventh on the table while a loss could pull them down to 12th. With Champions League out of sights until next season, unless of course they win Europa League, the Jurgen Klopp led Liverpool would want to finish in Europe qualification places.

The Reds fought back well at Wembley but it would be difficult to rebound from the heartbreak, especially after losing on penalties. He would, however, take comfort from the fact that his team hammered city 4-1 in the reverse fixture at Etihad in November.

City, meanwhile, saw their title hopes dashed with consecutive home losses to Leicester City and Tottenham. Avoiding three consecutive defeats wouldn’t be the only thing on Manuel Pellegrini’s mind as he challenges his side to take inspiration from the Cup win and translate it to Premier League.

Pellegrini would be handing reins to Pep Guardiola in the summer and already has a title to his credit for the season. But the tight fight for Champions League places would mean that he can’t rest on laurels to finish in the top four. Then there is the little matter of avoiding the double against the Reds having lost very badly at the Etihad. Can City risk missing out on Champions League?

It would be tough to comeback from energy sapping and morale sucking penalty losses in finals. Liverpool will find it really difficult to pull up their performances although there is so much at stake in the Premier League for them. Manchester City should get their title run back on track with a win.

Watch out for Daniel Sturridge who could be eager to score in the match, not just to prove a point against his former employers but also to get back to goal scoring ways. For City, it could depend on the fitness and finesse of their talisman Sergio Aguero who could be a good bet for getting on the scoring sheet.
