Manchester City vs. Liverpool: Lineups

Two depleted teams -- Manchester City are without captain and centre back Vincent Kompany, while Liverpool have had to resort to starting Jamie Carragher with Martin Skrtel on the bench -- face off at the Etihad Stadium. Failure to win for either side means trouble. City can't afford to slip further off the pace thanks to Manchester United's win at Craven Cottage, while Liverpool don't want their newly-renewed push for fourth to stumble after failing to beat Arsenal in midweek.

Should be fun.

Manchester City starting lineup (4-4-2): Joe Hart; Gael Clichy, Matija Nastasic, Joleon Lescott, Pablo Zabaletta; David Silva, Gareth Bareth, Javi Garcia, James Milner; Sergio Aguero, Edin Dzeko.

Substitutes from: Costel Pantilimon, Maicon, Aleksandar Kolarov, Samir Nasri, Scott Sinclair, Jack Rodwell, Carlos Tevez.

Liverpool starting lineup (4-3-3): Pepe Reina; Jose Enrique, Jamie Carragher, Daniel Agger, Glen Johnson; Jordan Henderson, Lucas Leiva, Steven Gerrard; Steward Downing, Luis Suarez, Daniel Sturridge.

Substitutes from: Brad Jones, Martin Skrtel, Andre Wisdom, Joe Allen, Raheem Sterling, Jonjo Shelvey, Fabio Borini.
