Competition: Capital One Cup
Market: Man City to lift the trophy
Odds: 4/7 @ Ladbrokes
Manchester City will face Liverpool in the final of the Capital One Cup following Wednesday night’s 3-1 win against Everton in the second leg of the semis. The Sky Blues were somewhat fortunate to progress, but they are sure to make it count when they meet another Merseysider outfit at the end of February.
Liverpool are being fancied by many to win their first trophy under new manager Jurgen Klopp, but the Reds are greatly struggling defensively and will struggle to contain a City attack choc-full of attacking talent. The likes of David Silva, Raheem Sterling and Sergio Aguero will be hard to keep quiet, and that could be the difference.
While having beaten Manchester City earlier in the season under Klopp, playing at a neutral venue makes it an even affair, and nerves could get the better of Liverpool at Wembley. They have a month to shore up the backline in time for the City clash, but the Sky Blues have an in-form Aguero in outstanding form which may be the deciding factor.
As a result, Ladbrokes are giving odds of 4/7 for Manchester City to lift the Capital One Cup trophy this season, be that through extra time or penalties if required.
