WHILE the Carling Cup Final takes centre stage in England there are two massive games in the Premier League.
Kenny Dalglish's Liverpool travel to West Ham while Man City entertain Fulham. Liverpool are unbeaten in eight in all competitions and Dalglish still believes they can sneak into the Champions League places.
It's a tall order as the Reds trail Spurs by eight points so they must win fixtures such as the West Ham one.
Liverpool have conceded just once in six games and it's an area of the team vastly improved by Dalglish with the help of Steve Clarke.
Consider Stan James’ 3-1 for Liverpool to win by a one-goal margin while Coral go 17-2 for a 2-1 success.
Avram Grant’s side have netted 15 in their last six games and can run the Reds close.
Thomas Hitzlsperger celebrated his return to fitness with a stunning opener against Burnley and the sharp-shooter is 18-1 at 888sport and Blue Square to score first and 11-2 with Paddy Power to net at any time.
At Eastlands, Man City are hot favourites at 8-15 with William Hill to send former boss Mark Hughes’ Fulham home empty-handed.
However, Roberto Mancini has several players out so while City should win don't go overboard with the stake.
A draw, 3-1 with Chandler, would suit on-form Fulham who are a best 7-1 at Chandler.
- Liverpool to win by one (3-1, Stan James)
- Man City v Fulham HT draw (13-10,totesport)
