Manchester City had to battle to secure their passage to the Champions League semi-finals on Wednesday and it came at a cost.
Not only will the players will be suffering with more fatigue than Liverpool (who could afford to rest some of their players against Benfica midweek), they also lost Kevin De Bruyne and Kyle Walker to ankle injuries. Both players are major doubts for the FA Cup semi-final tomorrow afternoon. Gabriel Jesus will, however, return after being suspended for the Atletico clash.
Manchester City’s Predicted XI To Play Liverpool:
Ederson, Cancelo, Dias, Laporte, Ake, Gundogan, Rodri, Silva, Jesus, Grealish, Sterling
Liverpool have a minor doubt over Mo Salah, who suffered a knock versus Benfica, while Diogo Jota is unlikely to start at Wembley after also picking up an issue on Wednesday evening.
Liverpool’s Predicted XI:
Alisson, Alexander-Arnold, Matip, van Dijk, Robertson, Henderson, Fabinho, Thiago, Salah, Mane, Diaz
The bookmakers have City as the slight favourites with Bet 365 currently pricing them at 8/5 for the win. A draw after 90 minutes is 5/2 with Sky Bet while a victory for Liverpool is 15/8 at Betfred.
Predicted Score – 1-1 (City to win on penalties)
