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.

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.

Should Man City sack Manuel Pellegrini? This week's #FCDebate

The FC TV panel have their say. What do you think? Vote now!

Manchester City have a star-studded squad yet seem to be stuck in a rut near the top of the Premier League. They face an uphill battle to defend their league title, while their hopes of finally making significant progress in the Champions League took a serious hit in Tuesday's 2-1 defeat to Barcelona at the Etihad.

How much of that is down to the manager? And is Manuel Pellegrini really the right man to push this team over the top?

Manchester City's poor Champions League discipline continues

Relive the most memorable moments from Tuesday's Champions League round of 16 action, highlighted by Barcelona's 2-1 triumph at the Etihad.
Barcelona's Luis Suarez notched a brace, but Sergio Aguero's second-half strike gave Manchester City a lifeline heading into the second leg.

ESPN FC's Alejandro Moreno breaks down just how Barcelona were able to exploit Manchester City's defense on their sublime second goal.
ESPN FC's Craig Burley assesses Barcelona's 2-1 victory at the Etihad over Manchester City.

The story of Manchester City's Tuesday evening was simple. The 2-1 loss to Barcelona finished better than it should have but, equally, worse than it could have too.

The Catalan giants ran rings around the hosts for the first half and, had they been more ruthless in front of goal, they'd have had a bigger advantage at the break than a 2-0 lead.

However, the Blues had chances too. If Edin Dzeko's heading was better or if Wilfried Bony hadn't fallen over Fernandinho's ankles, Manuel Pellegrini's side...
