Klopp delivers latest Liverpool FC injury update ahead of Man City clash

Lovren will start his fourth Premier League game of this season.

Klopp's side have plenty to gain. Here's a round-up of all their thoughts and predictions.

It's a rivalry that has grown in the last few years as both sides tussle for supremacy as the top team in England. Guardiola's men can still field a team packed with quality despite their injury problems so I wouldn't be surprised if they get something from this game.

The Citizens won all of their opening 12 fixtures to the season, before drawing against Liverpool at Anfield on November 30.

"Man City's weaknesses in defence will add to the game - you can only see goals in this one".

"It's not [about] adapting, it's because they are good", Guardiola said. Pep will look at the pace of Mane and the accusations of diving, but I can not see how these players will not be in a position to say there are goals here. "Liverpool are vulnerable defensively and have not been as good as a year ago, as we all knew, but they will be fairly happy with a point as it keeps everything going and ticking along".

Liverpool's past two home league games against Leicester City and Liverpool have been won 2-1, both secured with late penalties awarded for fouls on Mane.

"It is one of these games, after the miserable feeling of the last one, which will give everyone a "wow" moment".

City claimed the title last season, finishing a point clear of Liverpool despite Jurgen Klopp's men losing just one game, a loss that came against the eventual champions.

"If you lose, you know there is going to be a big gap, but we have to take it as it is, compete, and see what happens". Their record at Anfield is also formidable as they've not lost in their last 45 games on home soil so this is going to be an extremely tough game for an injury-hit City team.

Manchester City, meanwhile, are now second and six points behind the Reds as Pep Guardiola's men look to catch the Merseyside outfit and cut their lead down to three points. A win here would put them nine points clear, and though it's still really early, it would give them even more momentum entering the worldwide break.

"City will field two of Nicolas Otamendi, John Stones and Fernandinho in the centre of their defence and it will be hard for the visitors to keep Liverpool's front three and especially the hugely influential Sadio Mane at arm's length". Let's take a look at the possible Liverpool lineup for Sunday.
