Is the captaincy weighing down Steven Gerrard and Vincent Kompany?

Manuel Pellegrini knows all too well the dangers European football can pose on a domestic campaign, and notes that Liverpool may be feeling a strain following their Europa League defeat.
ESPN FC analysts Janusz Michallik and Steve Nicol predict the outcome of Sunday's three biggest matches.
Jordan Henderson makes a special appearance in the latest HWTLU to announce his name change. Also, the very angry Alan Tikitally continues his reign of Scottish terror.

Liverpool's meeting with Manchester City this weekend should be a fascinating contest. While not anywhere significant as last season's 3-2 victory for the Reds -- one of the most exciting games in recent Premier League history -- we can at least expect an interesting tactical battle between Liverpool's counterattacking play down the flanks and City's ball retention in the centre.

One the many subplots to the game, meanwhile, concerns the form of the respective captains. Steven Gerrard and Vincent...

Liverpool and Manchester City set for Anfield showdown as rivalry resumes

Jordan Henderson makes a special appearance in the latest HWTLU to announce his name change. Also, the very angry Alan Tikitally continues his reign of Scottish terror.

Liverpool vs. Manchester City at Anfield was a classic last season, with Brendan Rodgers' men prevailing 3-2 to take a giant leap towards the title. Steven Gerrard rallied his men at the end, telling them not to let things slip.

They -- and he -- did, though, leaving Manchester City the chance to win the league and Manuel Pellegrini's men duly obliged. Not as much is on the line at Anfield this time around, with Liverpool losing ground at the top following a poor start to the season. They remain...

Liverpool after Asier Illarramendi, Dortmund to swoop for Paulo Dybala?

Illarramendi is likely to start versus Celta and then days later versus Ludogorets. After that it's anyone's guess when he'll be named in Ancelotti's starting XI again.
Asier Illarramendi has been short on opportunities this season in Real Madrid's crowded midfield.

All the latest and greatest rumours and tidbits on the transfer moves teams around the world will be making this summer.

Illarramendi to step into Gerrard's shoes?

Even when you're at Real Madrid, it can be tough being a bit-part player, just ask Jese.

Another young Blancos player struggling for gametime is Asier Illarramendi, and the Mirror reports that Liverpool have asked Real to keep them informed should the 24-year-old become available this summer.

With Steven Gerrard leaving for...

Liverpool vs. Manchester City: Will the Reds run out of steam?

Jordan Henderson makes a special appearance in the latest HWTLU to announce his name change. Also, the very angry Alan Tikitally continues his reign of Scottish terror.

Nick Miller looks at five key talking points regarding Sunday's clash between Liverpool and Manchester City at Anfield.

1. Will this game prove crucial for Manuel Pellegrini?

Another season and -- barring something thoroughly implausible in the Camp Nou -- another European disappointment for Manchester City. One of the theories behind Manuel Pellegrini replacing Roberto Mancini as manager was that he could bring Champions League success to this expensively-assembled squad. But in truth, they...

Fantasy preview: Week 27

ESPN FC's Mark Donaldson previews a busy week of Premier League fixtures ahead, and suggests top ELP fantasy picks.
Manchester City manager Manuel Pellegrini looks ahead to Sunday's Premier League visit to Liverpool.

For the first time this season, all 20 Premier League teams will not be in action for a league game week because of the Capital One Cup Final. Cup finalists Chelsea and Tottenham are idle as are Leicester and QPR.

There is one game to check announced lineups in Week 27 before the ESPN FC fantasy game locks: West Ham-Crystal Palace.

West Ham vs. Crystal Palace

West Ham blew a two-goal lead at Tottenham for a disappointing draw in their last game on Feb. 22. Still, some impressive...

Emre Can, Martin Skrtel and Mamadou Sakho combination key for Liverpool

Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers believes a defensive lapse cost his side a place in the last 16 of the Europa League at the hands of Besiktas.

It's fair to say that while the Capital One Cup final between Chelsea and Tottenham will be the main event in English football this weekend, the Premier League meeting of sixth-placed Liverpool and title holders Manchester City closely follows.

Both sides will be looking to bounce back from disappointing results in Europe in midweek but it's the Reds whose exploits may well have been most damaging come the weekend. Were it not for the fact that not only did Liverpool play two days after City's narrow...
