    Premier League LIVE! Liverpool v Man City

    Probable Lineups:

    Liverpool (4-1-2-1-2): Mignolet, Johnson, Skrtel, Sakho, Flanagan, Gerrard, Henderson, Allen, Coutinho, Sturridge, Suarez

    Liverpool host Manchester City in what could a title deciding match as they sit top of the table with 74 points, four points ahead of third place City, who have two games in hand. A victory at the weekend means they can develop a seven point gap with the hopes of holding off any other contenders for the league title. Brendan Rodgers has lead his team to nine consecutive victories and grabbing a tenth win could very well mean they become title favorites. After a narrow win at West Ham United, Rodgers might need to make a few changes to his 4-3-3 formation from last week as he looks to revert back to a 4-1-2-1-2 diamond. With Daniel Agger still a doubt for the match, Mamadou Sakho looks to once again play alongside Martin Skrtel in central defense. Raheem Sterling looks to be the one dropped for this clash with Coutinho playing the tip of the midfield with Joe Allen slotting in his usual midfield role. The Liverpool manager will need to sure up his midfield to cope with their opponents attacking moves as well as keep them ready to counter with the likes of Daniel Sturridge and Luis Suarez looking to ensure victory.

    Manchester City (4-2-3-1): Hart, Zabaleta, Demichelis, Kompany, Kolarov, Fernandinho, Toure, Navas, Silva, Nasri, Aguero

    Manchester City travel to Liverpool with five wins and a draw in their last six matches and they sit third in the Premier League table playing two games less than the other top two teams. City at this point in the season are still considered the title favourites due to their two games in hand which gives them the advantage over their opponents. Manuel Pellegrini will be boosted by the return of their star striker Sergio Aguero who missed eight consecutive games since his injury. If Aguero does get the start, it will mean both Edin Dzeko and Alvaro Negredo will be moved onto the bench as Pellegrini usually fields only one striker. The Argentine striker is probably the only change the City manager will make since their recent 4-1 victory against Southampton. Yaya Toure is still considered a doubt at the moment but should be fit for the clash with Liverpool in a few days time. Pellegrini will have a rather complete team as he looks to finish off their title contenders with a victory at the weekend.

    What the fans are saying…
     Remember this?

    Last season Liverpool hosted Manchester City, but it ended with a 2-2 draw. Three out of the four scorer are all going to take part in this weekends match as the host look to avoid a draw and try to register a victory instead. Be prepared for an exciting encounter between the two teams.

    Fantasy Football Danger Man

    TMsuarez

    In a match filled with stars and danger men, none other can change the game with a moment of brilliance better than Luis Suarez. He can out pace or out dribble any opponent player as he looks to team up with his lethal strike partner Daniel Sturridge. If the Uruguayan is given any space inside the penalty box, fans should be expecting a scoring opportunity, if not a goal.

    Liverpool vs. Manchester City: An Alternative Preview

    Liverpool have won all four home meetings with fellow members of the top seven so far this season, scoring 14 and conceding just once.

    Man City have only won one of their previous 16 Barclays Premier League matches at Anfield (D5 L10), with that win coming back in May 2003.
