Liverpool v Man City preview

Catch Liverpool v Man City, live on Sky Sports 1 on Sunday

Liverpool play host to Manchester City on Sunday, live on Sky Sports 1 and HD1, looking to bounce back from their midweek disappointment.

The Reds saw their UEFA Champions League dreams ended by Chelsea on Wednesday and they will be determined to get that defeat out of their system against City.

Rafa Benitez's men will also be hoping to put on a show for the home fans in the final game of the season at Anfield.

Top scorer Fernando Torres is a major doubt after he was forced off against Chelsea with a hamstring problem and he is unlikely to be risked this weekend.

Martin Skrtel is not expected to feature after limping off at Stamford Bridge with a knee problem.

Sami Hyypia is likely to replace Skrtel in central defence alongside Jamie Carragher, while Peter Crouch could start in attack in place of Torres.

Benitez could also shuffle his pack and freshen up his starting XI after the gruelling extra-time defeat to Chelsea.

City news

City go into the game with doubts growing over the future of manager Sven-Goran Eriksson.

Reports suggest Eriksson will be axed in the summer by City owner Thaksin Shinawatra after being disappointed by City's form in the second half of the campaign.

City are hoping that skipper Richard Dunne will be fit to return after missing last weekend's defeat at home to Fulham with a hamstring injury.

Micah Ricards is still sidelined as he recovers from knee surgery and Nedum Onuoha is also missing through injury.

Valeri Bojinov could be included in the squad after a long-term injury and left-back Javi Garrido has returned to training.
