Fancy a bet? City are 7/4 to win this one, the draw is 9/4 and a Liverpool victory is priced at 13/8.

The referee today is Peter Walton (Northamptonshire).

Liverpool: Reina, Carragher, Skrtel, Agger, Insua, Mascherano, Lucas, Maxi, Gerrard, Babel, Kuyt. Subs: Cavalieri, Aquilani, Torres, Riera, Aurelio, Benayoun, Kelly.

Man City: Given, Zabaleta, Kompany, Lescott, Bridge, Wright-Phillips, Ireland, De Jong, Barry, Adam Johnson, Adebayor. Subs: Taylor, Richards, Santa Cruz, Sylvinho, Toure, Bellamy, Ibrahim.

City forward Craig Bellamy, who has been carrying a knee injury, is named on the bench after his reported training ground bust-up with manager Roberto Mancini, who makes six changes from the midweek draw with Stoke. Three of the back four are changed as Pablo Zabaleta, Vincent Kompany and Wayne Bridge all come in with Adam Johnson, Stephen Ireland and Shaun Wright-Phillips – on his 200th Premier League appearance for City – also returning.

There are four changes to the starting line-up which beat Unirea Urziceni on Thursday, with Ryan Babel, Maxi Rodriguez, Lucas Leiva and Emiliano Insua all returning at the expense of Fabio Aurelio, Alberto Aquilani, Albert Riera and David Ngog.

Striker Fernando Torres makes a surprise return to the Liverpool bench. The Spain international has not featured in the squad since sustaining a knee injury in the FA Cup fourth-round defeat at home to Reading on 13 January, which subsequently required surgery. He was expected to be out for at least six weeks after his operation but has returned ahead of schedule to give Liverpool a significant boost.

The teams are in and we have some interesting ins and outs.

City currently occupy that much-coveted fourth spot in the Premier League table, but Liverpool are hot on their heals. A win for the Reds this afternoon will see them jump above City, although the Blues do have a game in hand.
