The match takes place at Anfield where City look to get their Barclays Premier League title challenge back on track against a Liverpool side aiming to avenge the weekend’s League Cup final defeat.
City have not won on any of their last 12 Premier League trips to Anfield, losing eight and drawing four.
There have been 34 goals scored in the last nine meetings in all competitions – neither team has kept a clean sheet in that run.
Four more games will be staged tonight as Arsenal host Swansea City; Stoke City take on Newcastle United; Tottenham travel to West Ham United and Manchester United entertain Watford.
A special midweek edition of Match of the Day will have highlights of all ten games, including Tuesday’s five league games, from 10.45pm, tonight on BBC One and BBC One HD.
