Sadio Mane and Fabinho are back in the starting lineup while new signing Ozan Kabak is on the bench as Liverpool gear up to take on Manchester City.
Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has made four changes to the side that started against Brighton in midweek for their titanic Premier League clash against Manchester City.
The first change comes in goal where first-choice shot-stopper Alisson Becker is back in the side after missing the last game due to illness. Caoimhin Kelleher makes way for the Brazilian. Three of the back-four are retained, with Trent Alexander-Arnold, Andrew Robertson and Jordan Henderson all starting again.
However, Nathaniel Phillips has dropped to the bench, making way for Fabinho to start with the Brazilian having recovered from his injury. January signing Ozan Kabak is among the substitutes as well.
