GK) Joe Hart
Back to his best after an early season blip, Hart will have some trouble keeping Liverpool out at Anfield. Only Southampton have managed to do so all season.
DR) Pablo Zabaleta
The Argentine will need to be reminded of his defensive duties, as his penchant for going forward may leave his side vulnerable to the counter attack.
DC) Vincent Kompany
City’s captain regularly steps up his performance in the big games, and they don’t come much bigger than this potential Premier League title decider.
DC) Martin Demichelis
Matija Nastasic is injured, and Manuel Pellegrini favours Demichelis to Joleon Lescott anyway. The ageing Argentine will have to be careful his lack of pace isn’t exploited by Daniel Sturridge and Raheem Sterling.
DL) Gael Clichy
The Frenchman is probably defensively stronger than Aleksandar Kolarov, so could get the nod to face the league leaders.
