With just five games to go Liverpool sit top of the table, four points clear of third place City who have two games in hand.
The brief for Brendan Rodgers and his side is simple, win five games are they are champions for the first time since 1990. It’s not so easy however when two of those opponents are also challenging for the title.
While Chelsea’s time will come later in the month, first up is Manchester City. The 2011/2012 Champions are the league rich men and boast a strong squad. They too have a simple brief, win all their games and they are champions for the second time in three years.
The game, which will kick off seven minutes late in honour of those that died in the Hillsborough disaster, has the potential to be an exciting affair with both sides the league’s top scorers and promising not to hold back on their attacking instincts. Neither side has major injuries heading into the game either.
Liverpool are set to be at almost full strength with only long-term absentee Jose Enrique missing out. Daniel Agger is set to return after missing the win over West Ham United though illness although Brendan Rodgers could opt to stick Mamadou Sakho.
The French International put in a solid performance alongside Martin Skrtel at Upton Park and could keep his place to help combat the physical presence of the likes of Vincent Kompany, Alvaro Negredo, Yaya Toure and Edin Dzeko.
Lucas could also start after his strong second half performance against the Hammers. The Brazilian came on for his countryman Philippe Coutinho last weekend and helped shore up a Reds midfield that was struggling.
City meanwhile will welcome back Sergio Aguero after a hamstring injury although the Argentine forward could start on the bench. Consistency has been key to City’s good form under manager Manuel Pellegrini and the only real dilemma facing the Chilean, in addition to starting with Aguero, is who starts at left back, Gael Clichy or Aleksandar Kolarov.
Liverpool are the form team heading into the clash. The club have won their last 9 leagues games on the trot beating Arsenal, Manchester United and Spurs during that run, scoring 32 goals in the process.
City meanwhile have won five of their last 6 games, thrashing Fulham and Manchester United not to mention coming away from a tricky trip to the Emirates with a point. Pellegrini’s men have been equally entertaining as an attacking force this season scoring 84 goals so far this campaign, six fewer than Sunday’s hosts.
The Reds have been strong at home this season with Southampton the only team to leave with all three points while City have lost to Chelsea and drawn with Arsenal in their only away games against sides in the top four. They did however beat Manchester United and Spurs away and are unbeaten on their travels (10 games) since they lost to Sunderland in November.
