Philippe Coutinho shines for Liverpool to put pressure on Man City's Pellegrini

ESPN FC's Craig Burley breaks down an impressive result for Liverpool and a blow for City's title aspirations.
ENGLISH PREMIER LEAGUE: Coutinho goal (75') Liverpool 2-1 Manchester City
ENGLISH PREMIER LEAGUE: Jordan Henderson goal (11') Liverpool 1-0 Manchester City

LIVERPOOL, England -- Three thoughts from Anfield after Liverpool claimed a 2-1 victory over Manchester City to climb to fifth in the Premier League table.

1. Coutinho the scourge of City again

History repeated itself. For the second successive season, Manchester City lost to Liverpool. Once again, they were defeated by a wonderful strike from Philippe Coutinho. The Brazilian's ability to unleash unstoppable shots at vital moments is ever more apparent. Seven days after Coutinho scored a glorious...

Vincent Kompany, Samir Nasri not good enough in Man City's Anfield loss

ESPN FC's Craig Burley breaks down an impressive result for Liverpool and a blow for City's title aspirations.
ENGLISH PREMIER LEAGUE: Coutinho goal (75') Liverpool 2-1 Manchester City
ENGLISH PREMIER LEAGUE: Edin Dzeko goal (26') Liverpool 1-1 Manchester City
ENGLISH PREMIER LEAGUE: Jordan Henderson goal (11') Liverpool 1-0 Manchester City

One of these two teams played football for two hours in Turkey on Thursday night. Judging by the performance, you'd have said that it was Manchester City who were fatigued from a long flight that arrived home at 6 a.m. on Friday ... but you'd be wrong.

Instead, Manuel Pellegrini's side simply failed to show up and all of the momentum gained from the win against Newcastle that closed the gap to Chelsea to five points has somewhat dissipated a week later. The passion, calmness, pride, dynamic...

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...

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...

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...

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...
