Big guns back for Liverpool

Liverpool also make seven changes following their Champions League exploits in midweek.

However, in Jurgen Klopp’s case, the Reds boss is able to recall a number of star names after resting them against Benfica.

Alisson, Ibrahima Konate, Naby Keita and Luis Diaz are the four to keep their place as the likes of Mo Salah, Sadio Mane and Virgin van Dijk return.

As usual, Liverpool match up to City with a similar 4-3-3 shape, and will be captained this afternoon by Van Dijk.

1 Alisson; 66 Alexander-Arnold, 5 Konate, 4 Van Dijk, 26 Robertson; 3 Fabinho, 6 Thiago, 8 Keita; 11 Salah, 10 Mane, 23 Diaz
