Although defeat by Besiktas at the scene of one of Liverpool's greatest European triumphs closed off a potential route to the Champions League, it increased their chances of reaching Europe's elite via a top-four Premier League finish.It will be a hard task for Liverpool's fatigued players to match up to City and their vast and expensively acquired array of talents at Anfield Sunday having had two days fewer to recuperate than their well-resourced opponents.The second legs of the Europa League's last 16 are scheduled for three days before Liverpool face top-four rivals Manchester United at Anfield.
