Klopp Confirms Huge Injury Boost But Duo To Miss Man City Game

Klopp Confirms Huge Injury Boost But Duo To Miss Man City Game

Daniel Sturridge (muscle) is a doubt ahead of the game and Jordan Henderson (hamstring) has yet to train. One of whom will surely end City's wonderful but overstayed unbeaten run.

Liverpool FC have won their last four Premier League games against Manchester City at Anfield. Klopp hailed Coutinho's "professionalism" as the Brazilian secured his dream move.

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has been under intense pressure, but there could finally be some good news for the Frenchman as The Gunners have reportedly taken a significant step forward in signing West Brom and former Manchester United star Jonny Evans.

How can Liverpool beat City?

Egyptian winger Mohamed Salah is set to return from injury and he and Sadio Mane are likely to play either side of striker Roberto Firmino.

That trio is more than capable of ensuring its team's offensive threat remains among the most unsafe in the English top flight.

In City's last three away fixtures, they have scored just the two goals and been fortunate to scrape a goalless draw at Crystal Palace due to Ederson's last-gasp penalty save. "It's a big game for us and we are going to plan as much as possible", Guardiola said in his press conference on Friday. Maybe it changed City's season.

However, a shocking statistic shows that the Manchester club have not recorded a single victory at Anfield in an astonishing 14 years, having lost 15 of their last 20 encounters against the Merseysiders, with their last win coming way back in May 2003. The following week they rode that momentum to Watford and leapfrogged Manchester United into first place.

When Mauricio Pochettino looked to get four men in the heart of the midfield by playing a diamond, it backfired by leaving Tottenham's right-back Kieran Trippier exposed against Leroy Sane in a system that lacked width in front of him. They now sit an incredible 15 points clear.

"We were really good in the game". They'll nearly certainly win the league in record time, and maybe even in March.

But since Champions League action took a back seat the Reds have been more risky than ever.

Sunday's match will be City's seventh in 23 days, and Guardiola has so far tempered expectations with the reality of future tests.

"Sometimes you try things and they come off".

Still, while they look nailed on for the title, it remains to be seen whether they can complete the season without losing a league match. What their upcoming match will reveal is whether they'll make hard work of it or race to the trophy at unprecedented speed.
