WHAT TO EXPECT

The rivalry between Liverpool and Manchester City has been going on for years now and it is one where both teams respect each other. Generations have passed and new ones have been birthed to carry on the battle, and on Thursday it will go down the Etihad Stadium in a Carabao Cup clash.

This will be a season resuming match for Man City following the international break due to the just ended FIFA World Cup which saw one of the Blues – Julian Alvarez emerge victorious with Argentina.

The last League Cup match City played against the Reds goes back to the 2015/16 final at Wembley Stadium, where City won an enticing penalty shootout.

Neither team could carve out a winning goal, after goals from Fernandinho and Philippe Coutinho meant the teams were even after 120 minutes.

In the thrilling penalty shootout that followed, Willy Caballero saved Adam Lallana’s penalty, before Yaya Toure stepped up and calmly converted the winner to make it 3-1 and secure the Capital One Cup.

The last Premier League encounter between Manchester City and Liverpool ended up in a 1-0 defeat at Anfield in October, after Mo Salah’s goal separated the teams at the final whistle.

PEP GUARDIOLA PREVIEW

Pep Guardiola says: “At the moment, we have four or five players, and we will have to wait and see how the others come back.”

“But we just don’t have players because the big brains of football decided this schedule and we are going to play this game (against Liverpool).

“Some players are coming back now and in the next few days and step by step, they will re-join their team-mates here.

“People are coming back soon. Nathan, Aymer, and Rodri, and later the players from the England and Portugal teams.”
