Neutrals may raise an eyebrow but general interest levels would also fall when you hear Manuel Pellegrini played a team largely consisting of younger/youth players.
However, Liverpool supporters were very interested in City's FA Cup defeat on Sunday - because they play them in the Capital One Cup final next week.
And Liverpool fans were very, very interested in the performance of Willy Caballero at Chelsea.
Indeed, the goalkeeper has been promised a start in the final by Manuel Pellegrini, with the shot stopper representing Man City in the cups.
For the Reds, though, that seems like brilliant news based on Sunday's display. Caballero was all over the place against Chelsea, delivering a true horror show of goalkeeping.
And that may well hand Liverpool the Capital One Cup on a plate, or so fans - without tempting fate - suggest...
In Willy Caballero we have finally found a keeper worse than Mignolet #lfc— JFT 96 (@Aviationlfc) February 21, 2016
