How we expect Liverpool to line up against Man City

Alisson Becker, Sadio Mane and Fabinho have all returned to training after missing recent games and could be involved against Pep Guardiola’s side this weekend.

Klopp will be delighted to see the trio return as the champions look to bounce back from defeat at home to Brighton on Wednesday which saw defender Andy Robertson declare them as out of the title race for the time being.

“Ali feels much better, good enough to have an individual session today and Sadio and Fab will be in parts of team training today,” Klopp said.

Meanwhile, new signing Ozan Kabak is available to make his debut after having his international clearance come through.

The Turkey international joined on loan from Schalke but unlike fellow deadline-day arrival from Preston Ben Davies, he was not in the squad for Wednesday’s defeat at home to Brighton because his paperwork had not been received.

“With our situation we will see who can play again, who can not play again and then we will see,” said manager Jurgen Klopp. “In an ideal world we’d have a few weeks to work on defensive things, especially on organisation.

“Ben and Ozan yesterday had an analysis meeting where they got shown all the stuff we do usually, like a ‘centre-half movie’.

“Today proper session, tomorrow proper session and then we will see.”

Predicted XI (4-3-3): Alisson; Alexander-Arnold, Fabinho, Davies, Robertson; Henderson, Thiago, Wijnaldum; Salah, Mane, Firmino
