Hamann backing Liverpool to be too strong for Man City

Didi Hamann reckons Liverpool are favourites going into Sunday's big game against top four rivals Manchester City.

A veteran of both clubs, Hamann feels the momentum is with Rafa Benitez's side - even though they are a point behind City and have played a game more.

"I think four weeks ago, fourth place was City's to lose, but they have hit a rocky spell and Liverpool have managed to claw their way back into it," the German told the Mirror.

"From being in a great position in the table, things have changed for City. Before with their games in hand, a draw would not have been a bad result for them, but I think things have changed now to the extent where they need the three points more than Liverpool do.

"I think it's got to the point where City need to beat Liverpool on Sunday to have any realistic chance of getting into the Champions League.

"If they do, then they will be in a good position and they will be four points ahead of Liverpool with a game in hand."
