WHY CITY
WILL WIN THE GAME

By rights, City should win this game. In fact, this fixture has bedeviled the Citizens for decades. Liverpool wins this game half the time, and even the presence of glittering stars has done little to change that equation.

 City badly needs a win here to keep pace with arch-rivals United so expect another locked-down performance in the back and pyrotechnics up top.
 

WHY LIVERPOOL
WILL WIN THE GAME

A work in progress, the Reds were dumped out of the FA Cup by Oldham (Oldham!) in one of the great upsets in that tournament’s history.

 Stung, the Reds now need to power through a series of gruelling fixtures including this matchup against a tough, technical city side with a lot of talent. Luis Suarez and Daniel Sturridge can take chances but can they get service from their midfield?
