3. Possible return of Sergio Aguero
Having not played in six weeks due to injury, Aguero may need to be brought straight back into the starting line-up against the Reds, as they face a striker crisis. With Wilfried Bony and David Silva both major doubts for the game, Manuel Pellegrini may have to risk Aguero in order to get a crucial result. Bringing back the Argentinian has proved reckless before, as he often sees a reoccurrence of his injury problems quite regularly. He will be fit enough to start on the bench, but bringing him into to the starting eleven would inevitably prove costly to Pellegrini’s side in the future.
