Tough one to call on Sunday. If Manchester City show up as they did in Kiev on Wednesday night, then they deserve to be favourites to win the Capital One Cup final.

However, perhaps they were up against a ring-rusty and mediocre Dynamo side that might struggle in the Premier League, with Manuel Pellegrini’s side having previously lost top flight encounters at home to Leicester and Tottenham.

Quite simply, we can’t trust City at odds-on even if David Silva, Yaya Toure and the excellent Sergio Aguero are on song. Especially as they face a Liverpool team who are a box of frogs when it comes to predicting what they’re going to do next.

Jurgen Klopp will have a game plan for this final and if it’s anything like the strategy for last autumn’s match at the Etihad, then Liverpool have a great chance of landing silverware this weekend.

The Reds ran out 4-1 winners in that clash after roundly outplaying their north-west rivals, with Klopp now having Daniel Sturridge to line up against his former club in addition to Philippe Coutinho and Roberto Firmino flanking the England man.

However, Liverpool are defensively suspect, with Simon Mignolet an unsafe pair of hands and it might be the case that Lucas lines up in central defence which is a far from ideal situation.

Therefore, the best strategy is to go for goals. This won’t be a dull affair and Liverpool can’t afford to sit back and soak up the City attacks, especially with such a dynamic front three of their own.
