This trophy that often gets shunned at the start of the season starts to look more important in Feb. Pellegrini would love to sign off from the role of Man City boss with at least 1 trophy in the bag, he is still in the league contest as all 3 teams above them will drop a lot of points on the run in, but this is the best chance.
Liverpool are starting to feel like maybe Klopp can deliver if given time and winning this would buy him that. They feel like they should be winning titles but really with the squad they have winning the league cup is about the best they can expect this time around.
We never like backing match odd prices in finals between two pretty equal sides, as if they are drawing with 10 minutes left neither team risks being hit on the break, they keep it tight so the match odds do not offer value. If we are going to tip anything on the match odds it would be the draw at a best price of 3.5 with Sportingbet
We like under 2.5 goals at 2.0 with 32 Red and also Liverpool to lift the trophy at 2.25 with Hills
