City can't let history keep on repeating - Liverpool v Man City

Manchester City’s Champions League hopes are hanging by a thread following this week’s defeat to Barcelona. In similar fashion, City’s Premier League aspirations were perilously close to petering out last season after the seismic 3-2 loss to Liverpool…and we all know how that turned out!

And in the same way ‘Merry Christmas Everybody’ was a chart topper with lyrics ‘Look to the future now, it’s only just begun…’ Manchester City could find themselves ‘Top of the Pops’ […]
