Paddy Power are boosting the price on Liverpool to win tonight from 3/1 to 9/1! OR you can back Man City to win at 7/2 (was 8/11)More details below!
Last season City won this tie 2-1 but later succumbed 3-2 at Anfield to the Reds. Both sides got their campaigns off to solid starts with City disposing of Newcastle United on their own turf while Liverpool were somewhat fortunate to come away with all three points in their 2-1 win over Southampton.
City will head into the game as favourites especially with an almost fully fit squad, the only absentee’s being Alvaro Negredo and new signing Eliaquim Mangala. Sergio Aguero is expected to start up front after his goal-scoring appearance from the bench against the Magpies with Stevan Jovetic the likely man to make way.
Former Porto midfielder Fernando could start on the bench as Manuel Pellegrini pairs Fernandinho and Yaya Toure in the middle once more while Pablo Zabaleta is expected to return.
Liverpool for their part will give a debut to new left back Alberto Moreno with Glen Johnson likely to drop down to the bench. Javier Manquillo, impressive on his debut against the Saints, will continue at right back, while Joe Allen will replace Lucas in the middle of the field.
The Reds will be without Adam Lallana, Jon Flanagan, Daniel Agger and Fabio Borini for the game while Lazar Markovic could finally make his debut after shaking off the injury that saw him miss last weekend’s opener.
The game will have an added spice to it following the news that former City striker Mario Balotelli will complete his surprise £16 million move to Liverpool on Monday. The AC Milan striker famously laid on the assist for Sergio Aguero that secured the club’s first ever BPL title and scored 30 goals in 80 games for the club.
