Team news
Salah is a minor doubt for the fixture having appeared to be struggling with a shoulder injury in mid-week.

Naby Keita suffered an injury against Napoli and is likely to miss out here.

Aguero has struggled with an ongoing groin issue, but should lead the line ahead of Gabriel Jesus again.

Benjamin Mendy could return here, however it is likely that Aymeric Laporte will continue from left-back.

Liverpool (4-3-3): Alisson; Alexander-Arnold, Van Dijk, Gomez, Robertson; Milner, Wijnaldum, Henderson; Mane, Salah, Firmino
Manchester City (4-3-3): Ederson; Walker, Otamendi, Stones, Laporte; D.Silva, Fernandinho, B.Silva; Sterling, Aguero, Sane
