Manchester City will look to bounce back from their FA Cup exit against United, a game which saw them lose on home soil for the first time in 31 matches.
The Blue's will go into this fixture positively though, as they have scored a massive 56 goals in the Premier League so far this season as a pose to Liverpool's 24.
Liverpool have not reached the new Wembley at all and Dalglish will relish the opportunity to visit the great stadium and win the cup that he lifted 4 ties as a player. The winner of this League Cup tie will be somewhat favorites to go on and win the trophy as a Championship opponent awaits. The game promises to be a cracker and the return leg at Anfield is one which is eagerly anticipated, as long as the tie is not wrapped up after tonights game.
