Manchester City haven’t won at Anfield since 2003 but the big spenders may never have a better chance of beating under-fire Liverpool and Gavin Beech thinks the visitors are a big price.

Italy manager Marcello Lippi has left the door open for Liverpool midfielder Alberto Aquilani.

The injury-prone former Roma player has yet to start a match since a £20million summer move to Anfield after undergoing ankle surgery in the summer, but he now looks set to be named in Rafa Benitez’s first XI against Manchester City on Saturday.

Lippi has offered Aquilani the added incentive of a World Cup place.

“I have a varied group and it needs to be complete,” said Lippi in The Times.

“If I haven’t considered a certain player, then why should I not consider him if the conditions are right?

“Look at Aquilani for example. If he plays with consistency for Liverpool, then why shouldn’t I consider him?”
