Predicted Liverpool line-up to face Manchester City in the Premier League
Liverpool succumbed to a 1-0 loss against Napoli in the Champions League after Lorenzo Insigne slotted home from close range in the dying minutes of the game. The Reds are now on a three-game winless run after making a superb start to their campaign.
Jurgen Klopp will swiftly turn his attention to the big clash against Manchester City in the Premier League this weekend. The Champions visit Anfield, a ground where they haven’t won since 2003, but Klopp must not get complacent.
Naby Keita is in contention for this game despite suffering a back injury against Napoli. However, Henderson may okay instead of the Guinean.Slight changes are expected to be made given Liverpool have had a tough run of fixtures in the last few weeks.
Probable Liverpool XI
Manager: Jurgen Klopp
Alisson Becker (GK)
The Brazilian has so far looked supreme between the sticks and has bailed out the Reds on countless occasions already.
Trent Alexander-Arnold (RB)
Arnold endured a mediocre game against Napoli and will be aiming to bounce back in this fixture.
Virgil Van Dijk (CB)
There’s no way Van Dijk would be kept out for this game. He is extremely crucial in this team.
Joe Gomez (CB)
Gomez was the standout performer against Napoli in the Champions League. He really is turning into a gem of a centre-back.
Andrew Robertson (LB)
Robertson will be aiming to hunt down Manchester City’s wide forwards just like he did last season.
James Milner (RCM)
Milner looked quite rusty against Napoli but he should start this fixture.
Georginio Wijnaldum (CM)
The Dutchman wasn’t really effective against the Italian outfit but his work rate in the middle of the park has always been fruitful.
Jordan Henderson (LCM)
The captain could start this game due to the Keita’s injury.
Mohamed Salah (RW)
This game gives Salah a good chance to prove that he is not a one-season wonder. We’ll have to wait to see if he regains his form.
Roberto Firmino (ST)
The Brazilian is yet to hit his full stride this season and there’s every chance he could do it against the Champions.
Sadio Mane (LW)
The Senegalese international has slightly tailed off after making a superb start to the season. However, he does love scoring against the Cityzens.
