Liverpool defenders Sakho and Toure tweet before Manchester City clash

Mamadou Sakho

The two sides meet in the Capital One cup final on Sunday afternoon.

Liverpool defender Mamadou Sakho has thanked the club’s fans for their messages of support ahead of Sunday’s big game with Manchester City via Twitter.

The two sides meet in the Capital One Cup final on Sunday, with Liverpool keen to get their hands on their first piece of silverware under manager Jurgen Klopp.

Standing in their way are Manuel Pellegrini’s Manchester City side, who are eyeing the trophy as a parting gift to their manager before he is replaced by Pep Guardiola in the summer.

It is sure to be an interesting fixture, and Sakho has thanked the fans for their messages of support before the game.

 

He was joined by fellow defender Kolo Toure, who is set to go up against brother Yaya Toure in the game, with the Ivorian saying he wants to hear the infamous Toure song sung loudly by both sets of fans. 

The Reds will surely head into the game confident of winning it as well given how they played against City earlier this season.

They travelled to the Etihad and put in a glittering display, coming away as 4-1 winners in one of their best performances of the season so far.

Indeed, that was arguably the best they have played since Klopp took charge in October and he will surely be hoping his side can repeat that display in Sunday’s cup final.
