Liverpool

Coach: Jugen Klopp

Current Form: L_W_D_W_L

Position in EPL: 11

Strong suit: Fast and keen attack represented by Coutinho and Firmino. They are also very keen in attacking and counter-attacking down the wings.

Weak point: Goalkeeper position represented by Simon Mignolet. After the goal conceded from long distance shoot against Manchester City in League Cup final, the goalkeeper received a lot of criticism. In general, Mignolet is concidered an unstable goalkeeper with 36 goals conceded this season.

Manchester City

Coach: Manuel Pellegrini

Current Form: L_L_L_W_W

Position in EPL: 4

Strong suit: Counter attacks and through ball chances supported by strong laterals Navas and Sterling.

Weak point: Atmosphere within the team. Manchester City’s squad and statistics for the last games are very impressive, and the team seems to have no major playing problem. However, the fact that Guardiola is officially to succeed Pellegrini has created a distrustful atmosphere within the team. Moreover, there are rumors that there is a conflic between Yaya Toure and the teammates.
