Thibaut Courtois insisted they weren't solely focused on in-form Harry Kane and said, "We need to see how to stop him, but of course stop all of Tottenham." The ESPN FC panel discuss why despite Tottenham's impressive victory over Chelsea when the sides last met, Chelsea remain heavy favourites in the League Cup Final. The ESPN FC crew discuss whether or not Chelsea and Tottenham's Cup title match is more important than Liverpool and Manchester City's match. Theirs is a comparison of an expensive foreign import and a great young hope of the English game starring for the team he supported as a boy.

Manuel Pellegrini knows all too well the dangers European football can pose on a domestic campaign, and notes that Liverpool may be feeling a strain following their Europa League defeat. ESPN FC analysts Janusz Michallik and Steve Nicol predict the outcome of Sunday's three biggest matches. Jordan Henderson makes a special appearance in the latest HWTLU to announce his name change. Also, the very angry Alan Tikitally continues his reign of Scottish terror. Liverpool's meeting with Manchester City this weekend should be a fascinating contest. While not anywhere significant as last season's 3-2 victory for the Reds -- one of the most exciting games in recent Premier League history -- we can at least expect an interesting tactical battle between Liverpool's counterattacking play down the flanks and City's ball retention in the centre. One the many subplots to the game, meanwhile, concerns the form of the respective captains. Steven Gerrard and Vincent...
