Our match prediction:
Revived Liverpool head to Wembley hoping to secure the ninth League Cup trophy in history, whereas their Premier League rivals currently have three titles to their name, the last won two years ago. Both sides have failed to live up to the billing this season, but the Reds have shown a great deal of improvement in recent weeks, with victories over Aston Villa and Augsburg as well as the record of three straight clean sheets giving them reason for optimism ahead of the trip to London. Meanwhile, Man City all but ended their Premier League title hopes with back to back losses to Leicester and Spurs, while they also crashed out of the FA Cup. However, the 3-1 Champions League win over Dynamo Kiev proved the Citizens should not be written off just yet, so we predict a close encounter between evenly matched sides that should go to extra time.
