Manchester City welcome the newly crowned champions, Liverpool, to the Etihad this Thursday evening.
Manchester City will give Liverpool the guard of honour before Thursday’s game.
Kevin Keegan v Alex Ferguson in the late 90’s – defined by Keegan’s “I’ll love it” moment. Arsene Wenger v Ferguson around the turn of the millennium including the memorable ‘pizza-gate’ incident.
Rafael Benitez v Jose Mourinho in the mid-noughties. None of which were more memorable than their first and Luis Garcia’s ‘ghost-goal’.
Liverpool eliminated Manchester City from the Champions League. Liverpool’s 3-0 win in the first leg being one of Guardiola’s worst defeats during his time in English football. The Reds showed their superiority earlier this campaign with a 3-1 win.
Repeating that feat at the Etihad is another thing entirely though. While City are missing a lot of experience in Aguero and Fernandinho, this could even prove an advantage with a younger first eleven.
