City Look To Close The Gap
Friday, 27th Feb 2015 18:16
Liverpool are the Premier League's in form team but along with the reigning Premier League champions they will both be hurting from painful European experiences. With Chelsea playing in the Capital One Cup final City can close the gap on the London side to two points. Liverpool beat City 3-2 at Anfield last April to take themselves closer to wining the title for the Reds to (literally) slip up.
Manchester City have a fully-fit squad. Key midfielder Yaya Toure is poised to return after missing Tuesday's Champions League loss to Barcelona through suspension. Striker Wilfried Bony, who has made two substitute appearances in the past week, could make his first start since his £25million move from Swansea.
Liverpool playmaker Philippe Coutinho will return to the side. Jordan Henderson,Mamadou Sakho and Glen Johnson could feature but will face late fitness tests.
Liverpool have won more points (16) in their last six matches than anyone else in the last six matches.
Raheem Sterling’s goal against Southampton put him joint top-scorer with Steven Gerrard on six goals.
Man City have had a league-high 16.9 shots per game.
The last time Man City won at Anfield was in May 2003 when Nicolas Anelka scored a double in a 2-1 win.
