Liverpool turn to Rodgers to halt Man City

Liverpool turn to Rodgers to halt Man City

Rodgers finished second with Liverpool, two points behind Manchester City, in 2014 and he knows Guardiola will be relishing the tension.

There is also the task of trying to overturn a 3-0 deficit at home to Barcelona in the Champions League semi-finals on Tuesday, but the Scotland captain insists while there is hope they have a chance.

Leicester were a thorn in Manchester City's challenge against Liverpool earlier in the season when they recorded a terrific victory over Guardiola's team.

Whoever finishes second this season will have the most points of any runner-up in the Premier League era.

Leicester City are ninth in the Premier League but their dreams of Europa League football will end if Wolves beat Fulham on Saturday. But floating around mid table isn't what this team expects.

Meanwhile, Manchester United are now on a run of just two wins in 11 matches across all competitions and need to turn things around quickly.

The company believes that in this case, it believes that the best option is to remove these people from its platform. US President Donald Trump has accused social media platforms of discriminating against users with right-wing views.

That switch made Sterling unpopular with Reds fans, yet he has established himself as one of the Premier League's top players, winning the Football Writers' Association Footballer of the Year and Professional Footballers' Association Young Player of the Year awards this season. Will he be decisive against Leicester and if City wins against the Foxes then on the final day as well?

The race for the remaining two slots in the Premier League top four, which gives entry to next season's Champions League, is the one nobody apparently wants to win. "But of course only one will take the prize and the other one will be at home sad". Just 22 goals conceded and only Liverpool have conceded less with 20. The odds on them doing that on Monday are 1/1 (2.0) at SkyBet.

City face a Leicester team who have won six out of nine league matches since Brendan Rodgers was confirmed as their manager on February 26.

Fernandinho is also a significant doubt for City and could be replaced by Ilkay Gundogan in the holding midfield position. "You've got to be super compact as a team and tight". Daniel Amartey, who broke his ankle back in October, is still out and remains unlikely to make an appearance for the rest of the season. He's 3/1 (4.0) at Unibet to score in this match and a rather tasty 12.0 (13.0) with Bet365 to get the first goal.

Sergio Aguero is famous for scoring goals that win titles.

City manager Guardiola is certain that Liverpool will not be thrown by their Champions League commitments as the domestic campaign draws to a close. The odds on him being the first goalscorer are 14/5 (3.4) at Coral.
