Got over the League Cup final loss yet? I'm not certain I have to be honest but hey, at least we have a shot at revenge just three days after Wembley. With that in mind I didn't see much point in writing up an almost identical match preview for Wednesday night's game and so I thought we could take a look back at some positive results that the Reds have picked up against City in recent times.
Manchester City 1 Liverpool 4 (November 2015)By a country mile, this has been my favourite moment under Jurgen Klopp so far. The side that day just seemed to click and when Martin Skrtel found the back of the net at 81 minutes to win me £40 as last goalscorer, I was just ecstatic! It was a phenomenal team performance, to rip a team like City apart so easily gave hope for the Klopp era.
That Coutinho knee slide though...
Liverpool 3 Manchester City 2 (April 2014)Another very special game and another Coutinho goal. In a magical season that nearly ended so perfectly for the Reds this was an extremely important game, taking the lead after just six minutes through Sterling and extending that with a Skrtel goal at 26 minutes, things looked done and dusted. Silva scored in the second half though and an own goal via Glen Johnson soon followed. But then, at 78 minutes...
Manchester City 2 Liverpool 2 (February 2013)Manchester City were hunting down Manchester United for the title in the run up to this game and most will remember it for a couple of fantastic goals. A beautiful strike from Daniel Sturridge put things level at 1-1, it was followed by another stunning strike, this time from Gerrard but unfortunately the captain's goal wasn't the winner as Aguero scored from a ridiculous angle.
Manchester City 2 Liverpool 3 (October 2008)Good old Kuyt, what a little gem he was. Always gave his all and for a player that was forged into a winger and out of his natural position he scored a fair few goals! This day in 2008 was no different as the Dutchman scored a winner in injury time.
The Reds came from behind in the game after City grabbed the first two goals. Fernando Torres was also on the scoresheet that day for the Reds.
