- Liverpool and Man City are both competing for three more trophies this season
- The two teams will compete on Saturday in the FA Cup semi-finals
- Sportsmail experts have revealed who they are aiming for to win the most silverware
Ahead of Saturday’s FA Cup semi-final at Wembley, Liverpool and Manchester City will both look to step closer to history as the Reds attempt to win an unprecedented quadruple, while Pep Guardiola’s side could collect three trophies between now and end of the season.
City currently have a one-point lead over Merseyside club in the Premier League and the two teams look well on their way to facing each other in next month’s Champions League final.
Like this of sports mail experts Micah Richards, Peter Crouch, Chris Sutton and Martin Keown predict which teams will add more silverware to their collection in the final weeks of the campaign …
Manchester City and Liverpool could now fight each other in three competitions
MICAH RICHARDS – CITY OF MAN
Liverpool have what appear to be slightly tougher games and I don’t see City losing their grip on a title challenge that remains in their hands.
Peter Crouch – CITY OF MAN
They have the most comfortable run-in and Pep Guardiola manages to push City over the edge in the league so consistently that you can’t look further.
CHRIS SUTTON – LIVERPOOL
It’s so hard to call and City have the easiest run-in but I have a feeling there will be a breakthrough and Liverpool’s strength in depth will allow them to beat City.
Kevin De Bruyne scored the first goal in the teams’ vibrant league draw last Sunday
MARTIN KEOWN – CITY OF MAN
I tipped City at the start of the season and I won’t change my mind now. They are an extraordinary team working under an extraordinary manager and you would not be able to win the last seven games.
RICCARDO – CITY OF MAN
I believe this will be the year for City, although a lot depends on the fitness of Kevin De Bruyne and Kyle Walker, who will miss them significantly as long as they stay on the sidelines. If they don’t come back quickly, I’d tip Liverpool.
NEXT TO – LIVERPOOL
It’s the experience, isn’t it? They have been there and have done it before under Jurgen Klopp and Liverpool are such a devastating cup side.
Liverpool have already won the Champions League with Jurgen Klopp and will then play against Villarreal
SUTTON – CITY OF MAN
Guardiola’s men cannot continue missing in the Champions League. The win over Atletico Madrid showed real resilience and could be the indicator that this is City’s season.
KEOWN – CITY OF MAN
City have just gone through an epic battle with Atletico. But they will have time to catch their breath and return to the Champions League and I think now is their time to win this competition.
RICCARDO – LIVERPOOL
They arrive at Wembley Saturday without a national defeat in 2022 and will have been hugely boosted by their second-half performance at Etihad last weekend.
With City missing key players, I feel they could be pushing the line.
NEXT TO – CHELSEA
The eyes of the other two greats, Liverpool and City, look to bigger prizes and I think it will offer Chelsea a chance to grab this one.
Chelsea may still be preventing both sides from making a clean sweep as they are still in the FA Cup
SUTTON – LIVERPOOL
They will eliminate City without De Bruyne and Walker and with the advantage of restoring key Champions League players this week.
I’m sorry for Chelsea and Crystal Palace, but I think the winner has to come from this semi-final.
KEOWN – LIVERPOOL
The timing of Liverpool’s semi-final with City is better for Klopp and his players. They were able to make adjustments for the clash with Benfica, while City lost key men in their bout with Atletico. So that’s Liverpool advantage.
