[4-3-3] Sturridge, Keita and Shaqiri Dropped, Salah, Mane and Milner to Start in Liverpool vs Man City likely XI

Footballbible on Facebook and Twitter get up to date football-related news from the English Premier League, La Liga, Serie A, Bundesliga and other leagues around the World. News From Chelsea, Everton, Arsenal, Manchester United, Manchester City and Liverpool.

Further updates are awaited from Jurgen Klopp in his pre-match presser regarding the fitness of Naby Keita (back) and any other niggles that his squad picked up in the Champions League on Wednesday.

The manner of the defeat to Napoli means tired legs are a possibility ahead of Sunday, but with Manchester City the visitors to Anfield, Klopp will surely name his strongest possible starting XI for the encounter with Pep Guardiola’s side.

Xherdan Shaqiri and Daniel Sturridge are fresh options in attack given that Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino did a lot of chasing in Naples, while Fabinho has an outside chance of a recall in the centre of midfield given the miles that James Milner and Georginio Wijnaldum covered in that defeat to Napoli.

Jordan Henderson, who replaced Keita on Wednesday evening, also looks a strong candidate to start against City.

Nathaniel Clyne, Alberto Moreno, Dejan Lovren and Joel Matip are the understudies should Klopp make a change or two in defence.
