Full Liverpool squad available to face Man City as 6 players out and fresh injury doubt emerges

Liverpool are back in action on Sunday afternoon as they welcome Manchester City to Anfield.

When facing Manchester City in the Premier League on Sunday afternoon, Liverpool will want to build on their stunning victory over Rangers in the previous week.

In recent seasons, games between the two teams have been of the greatest caliber, frequently determining who would ultimately win the top flight title.

Going into this most recent game in this match, where City are the betting favorites to win, 13 points separate the clubs.

Erling Haaland has been cleared to play against Liverpool on Sunday after missing the Sky Blues’ Champions League match against FC Copenhagen on Tuesday.

He will try to cause problems for a Reds defense that will be without Trent Alexander-Arnold and Joel Matip.

Another setback was, of course, Luis Diaz’s injury against Arsenal last Sunday, which is anticipated to keep the Colombian out of play until December after injuring his knee at the Emirates.

Due to the injury he sustained during preseason, which also applies to Curtis Jones, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain has returned to training this week.

However, it’s unlikely that either player will be put back into the mix right away.

Naby Keita continues to be a frequent absentee.Addressing the availability of the Guinean last month, Jurgen Klopp said:

“The expected return date is somewhere in October, that’s why we had to make the decision [Champions League squad].

“With Ox it is the same and that’s why the two boys are not in the Champions League squad because of their expected return.”

Goalkeepers: Adrian, Alisson, Caoimhin Kelleher.

Defenders: Andy Robertson, Calvin Ramsay, Ibrahima Konate, Joe Gomez, Kostas Tsimikas, Nat Phillips, Virgil van Dijk.

Midfielders: Fabinho, Fabio Carvalho, Harvey Elliott, James Milner, Jordan Henderson, Thiago Alcantara.
