Dejan Lovren is not yet 100% fit, but Mamadou Sakho’s head injury may sideline him and Lovren may get his start.

LFC

Daniel Sturridge enjoyed a good game and is returning to his potential best after spending most of this season on the sidelines due to injuries. Roberto Firminho, Philippe Coutinho are a threat to Reds’ opponents and the presence of James Milner in the middle provides experience and versatility.

Liverpool’s expected Starting XI for Liverpool Vs Manchester City

Simon Mignolet, Nathanial Clyne, Kolo Toure, Dejan Lovren, Alberto Moreno, Lucas Leiva, Jordan Henderson, Philipe Coutinho, Roberto Firminho, Daniel Sturridge, Christian Benteke.

Manchester City Squad News

Joe Hart is expected to return to the starting XI after missing out the cup final last on Sunday. The major problem for Manchester City this season is injuries to key players. Kevin de Bryune, Samir Nasri are out of the squad, David Silva  have sustained a small injury in his last game which may sideline him. Yaya Toure will also not start the game probably as he limped off the field in the Capital One Cup final and did not strain himself much while the team was celebrating the victory.

Martin-Skrtel-Sergio-Aguero

City’s title hopes are on ropes after their struggles in the last months, but the Capital One Cup victory gave them a new confidence. Manuel Pellegrini is hopeful that his team can win the League title this season amid not being one of the favorites to clinch the title. Leicester City and Tottenham are the top 2 favorites to win EPL this season, but Pellegrini is hopeful that his team can upset the top 2 and win the league.

Manchester City’s expected Starting XI for Liverpool Vs Manchester City

Joe Hart, Bacary Sagna, Vincent Kompany, Nicolas Otamendi, Clichy, Fernando, Yaya Toure, Fernandinho, Jesus Navas, Raheem Sterling, Sergio Aguero.

Liverpool Vs Manchester City Match Prediction

The visitors will find it difficult to break Liverpool if David Silva misses out from the start. Raheem Sterling’s finishing ability is a big concern for City against Liverpool in the last game, but the English youngster is always a threat up front. Liverpool have to rely on Roberto Firminho and Daniel Sturridge to provide the goals and they will definitely miss Martin Skrtel to keep Sergio Aguero shut.

Though City won the Capital One Cup final, they did not create much threat to Liverpool in the game and relied mostly on counters. In short, the team who play more CLINICAL football will have the upper hand.

Manchester United are on the verge to lose more players. Already more than 10 players are out of the squad due to injury since past couple of weeks. However, Manchester United are playing quite good without those senior players as youngsters are currently powering Red Devils.

However, there is a good news for Manchester United supporters as the United boss, Louis van Gaal has told to the official website that three players can return on Wednesday against Watford. Although, this is not 100% confirmed, yet, it seems, Martial and Darmian will be back against Watford. On the other hand, Smalling can also play against Watford.

Although, Smalling and Martial got injury lately, but Darmian has been out from squad since past couple of days. Smalling has been out due to a minor injury. On the other hand, Martial got injured in Denmark during the warm-up before Midtjylland clash.

However, Old Trafford boss has said that,

Players are coming back in March, I think. We need players who are coming back because our programme is very full.

Martial can play and also Darmian can play. Maybe Chris Smalling can play. We have to wait and see for tomorrow.

We have to build players up. You have seen how I did it with Marcos Rojo – 20 minutes and, the second time, 60 minutes, though he did not reach that. So it’s not so easy. Playing in the second team is also a possibility.

It was a kick [for Rojo]. A lot of players receive kicks and they can play the next match.

[Marouane] Fellaini and [Antonio] Valencia are the first ones to come back, I think.

Except, of course, Martial and Smalling and Darmian – they are coming back, maybe already tomorrow. It depends how they feel tomorrow, but the chance is there that one of these three players already plays.

Fellaini shall come into the last step of the process of team training, and also Valencia today has trained with the group, so they are coming back. Wayne Rooney is still in a brace.

It will be a great game indeed for Manchester United they can return in this match at Old Trafford.

FC Barcelona vice-president Jordi Mestre has criticised Real Madrid forward Cristiano Ronaldo for the player’s comments about his teammates saying Barcelona will never sign a player of Cristiano Ronaldo’s attitude as they analyse the players’ characters when signing a player.

Real Madrid lost to Atletico in the La Liga which killed even the slim chances that Real Madrid had in the Spanish first division. Club’s star forward Cristiano Ronaldo showed his anger of losing the game on his teammates as he claimed none of his teammates were on the same level with him which caused the defeat. Later he clarified his statement saying he only meant the players’ ‘physical’ level and did not mean their performances.

Real Madrid Players celebrating

Real Madrid missed Gareth Bale, Karim Benzema, Marcelo and Pepe due to injuries and the Ronaldo was right that the injuries were also a reason for the team’s bad run of form. Club Captain Sergio Ramos defended his teammate after critics were started to bash Ronaldo. The Spaniard claimed he knew Ronaldo more than anyone else and said Ronaldo never meant anything offensive towards his teammates.As usual, Barcelona players and the Chiefs ar

As usual, Barcelona players and the Chiefs have taken a swipe at their arch rivals and their most valued player. Barcelona’s vice-president Jordi Mestre felt the Portugal international is disrespecting towards his teammates and further told that the Catalan giants will not sign players of such attitude.

“Our team’s players would never say what Cristiano said. The club monitors a lot of things before signing players.”
“Honestly, I could not imagine one of our players saying what Cristiano said,” told Mestre.
Real Madrid did not say a word about this on-going issue as they look like more interested in solving the puzzles at Real Madrid than involving in players’ misinterpreted comments. Club manager Zinedine Zidane ruled out any chances of Real Madrid winning the Spanish Championship this year, but insisted that the team’s problem is ‘mental’ and not ‘physical’. The French man do have a hidden message to the Portuguese.

The Real Madrid captain voiced his support for Cristiano Ronaldo after the Portugal international lashed out his teammates for the Derby loss against rivals Atletico Madrid. “If anyone knows Cristiano, it is me,” said Ramos when asked about the Portuguese striker’s commitment towards his team.

Cristiano Ronaldo blamed his teammates for the loss, saying no one in Real Madrid is in his ‘physical’ level to win the League title. Real Madrid missed a 100% fit Karim Benzema who was substituted earlier and Gareth Bale is out of the team as he is recovering from injury. Ronaldo pointed out the injuries as the reason for his team’s downfall this season, claiming his team would be on the top of the table if the players who were missing had the same ‘physical’ level as himself.

“If anyone knows Cristiano, it is me.” 
“I don’t think he wanted to attack any of his team-mates but perhaps he did not express his opinion in the best way.”

“As captain I feel proud of my team-mates’ work and in difficult times we must emphasise this. But everyone is free to have an opinion.”

“I think when results go against you there are more negative opinions. It is tough, you lose a derby and the league becomes almost impossible. We still have the Champions League and we are hoping to play well there,” said Ramos.

Also, the Real Madrid captain praised academy graduates Mayoral and Jese Rodriguez for their impressive display and their dedication level. The Spaniard said he is proud of his all teammates amid the bad results and he urged the players to stay ‘united’ when the team is having a rough path.
“We are very proud of the work done by Jese, Lucas Vazquez, who are dying for a chance and when they are out there they show that.”
“I feel proud of all my team-mates. The results have not been good but that is when we have to come together the most.
“I know Cristiano very well and he perhaps did not express himself in the best manner,” he said.
Cristiano Ronaldo’s comments caused an unrest among the Real Madrid fans and it should have made a similar effect inside the dressing room, but the club Captain took the responsibility on himself and tried his best to solve the issue. Will Real Madrid play better or will continue to sink further is yet to be seen. But for now, the team needs some ‘morale’ booster.

He [Martial] is a player who can make an individual difference from anywhere. He can take a ball in the middle of the park, take it past two or three players and create differences. He has had a big impact at Manchester United and over a longer distance it will be a fantastic buy.

These are certainly some good words for Martial.
