Liverpool and Manchester City are embroiled in a two way tussle for the Premier League. City won it last year, and Liverpool are on the verge of the 30th year without a league title.
The Reds really, really want to win a league title. City have their eyes set on a quadruple after winning the league cup and booking their way to the final of the FA Cup.
City face Tottenham in the quarter-final of the Champions League. In the pre-match press conference of this match, Guardiola revealed how his bid for four trophies could take a hit after Kyle Walker off the pitch.
“Aguero feels better,”
“He trained with the team for the first time and he feels better.
“They are going to train, yesterday we didn’t train, they make recovery. I think Kyle feels a bit better and Benjamin recovered quite well I think. Possible contenders for tomorrow if the doctor doesn’t tell me the opposite.”
– Pep Guardiola
You see, it’s not just the players injured. City are suffering one injury after another, the next one could be the straw that broke the camel’s back. The number of games they have to play are considerably more than Liverpool.
