Liverpool and Manchester City will meet in the first domestic final of the 2015/2016 when they clash in the Capital One Cup final at Wembley later today with City hoping to give departing manager Manuel Pellegrini the perfect leaving present.
Both sides will head into the clash on the back of important European wins with Liverpool reaching the last 16 of the Europa League with a 1-0 aggregate win over Augsburg and City securing a first leg Champions League advantage over Dinamo Kiev thanks to a 2-1 win in the Ukraine.
The final represents two contrasting opportunities for the respective managers. Jurgen Klopp has the chance to lift a trophy just five months after taking the Anfield hot-seat while his counter-part, Manuel Pellegrini is hoping to claim a trophy before he departs his role in May for the in-coming Pep Guardiola.
The Reds have some key decisions to make ahead of the final most notably at the back where Klopp must decide if Lucas will continue at centre-back at the expense of the fit again Dejan Lovren or Kolo Toure.
Martin Skrtel is back training after a hamstring injury, as too is Adam Lallana and Joe Allen, although all three are unlikely to start.
Upfront, Daniel Sturridge is once again set to lead the line after another good outing against Augsburg with Roberto Firmino and Phillipe Coutinho in support.
Manchester City meanwhile will have their key quintet of Joe Hart, Vincent Kompany, David Silva, Sergio Aguero and Yaya Toure in their line up for only the 7th time this season.
Striker Wilfried Bony, winger Jesus Navas and defender Eliaquim Mangala could all return from injury at Wembley, although all three are more than likely set to start the game on the bench.
Raheem Sterling is set to face his old club while Fabian Delph, Kevin de Bruyne and Samir Nasri are all long-term absentees and miss out.
Manchester City are the favourites coming into the game and can be backed at around 6/4, but it is Liverpool who offer appeal at a juicy looking 2/1.
Jurgen Klopp’s side are slowly finding their feet and with the returning Daniel Sturridge, the Reds now pose much more of an attacking threat.
The continued absence of Vincent Kompany at the back for City has seen the side concede regularly, and with with Liverpool already thumping City 4-1 in the Premier League, we see no reason not to go with the Merseyside club.
Back the Reds to give Jurgen Klopp his first major trophy in English football.
