Jamie Redknapp predicts Capital One Cup final result

England Wembley

Liverpool take on Manchester City in the Capital One Cup final.

Jamie Redknapp believes Liverpool and Manchester City’s Capital One Cup final clash with go to extra time and possibly penalties as he can’t pick a winner over 90 minutes, Sky Sports report.

The Capital One Cup final sees Jurgen Klopp make his first Wembley appearance as Liverpool boss while it will be Manuel Pellegrini’s final game at Wembley as manager of Manchester City.

It has the hallmarks a real classic, and picking a potential winner between the two is a tricky ask.

Writing in his column for Sky Sports, Jamie Redknapp believes it will be an exciting game between two attacking sides and backs the encounter to go the distance as he calls a draw over 90 minutes.

“It's going to be fascinating to see how the two teams deal with the other side's threats. Overall, I'm expecting an even but exciting game - and one certainly well worth watching,” Redknapp explained.

“But who willwin? I'm finding it really tough to call and reckon it could even be a draw in normal time. Then, once it gets to extra-time and penalties, anything could happen. It's one not to miss. “

Liverpool got the better of City in their latest meeting, with the Reds running out 4-1 winners at the Etihad Stadium in a game which both managers may reflect on ahead of the cup final.

Klopp’s side’s intensity was far too much for City that day, and the Merseyside club aren’t the only side to have gotten the better of Pellegrini’s side using a high pressure and quick counterattacking method.

With City still in the Champions League and the race for the Premier League title, the Capital One Cup is arguably the least important of the three yet that shouldn’t stop the Citizens from going all out for the win.
