Liverpool will look to get back to winning ways when they take on Man City at the Etihad on Saturday evening. Here is the side I think the Jurgen Klopp will pick:

Goalkeeper: Simon Mignolet is expected to keep his place in goal meaning Adam Bodgan will remain on the bench.

Defence: Klopp is going to be forced into one change to his preferred back four after Mamadou Sakho suffered a knee injury during the 2-1 defeat to Crystal Palace before the international break.

Kolo Toure is back in contention after recovering from a hamstring injury but I think we’ll see Dejan Lovren line-up alongside Martin Skrtel with Alberto Moreno and Nathaniel Clyne keeping their places in the full-back slots.

Midfield: Jordan Henderson is due back in full training next week as he closes in on his comeback from a foot injury but this game comes too soon so Lucas Leiva should once again start alongside Emre Can in midfield.

Attack: Liverpool have been handed a timely boost with James Milner available after a hamstring injury so he should play from the right wing with Philippe Coutinho expected to start in the No.10 role.

Daniel Sturridge is back in full training and will be assessed tomorrow but I doubt we’ll see him risked from the start so Christian Benteke should lead the line up front. Roberto Firmino, Jordon Ibe and Adam Lallana will battle it out for the remaining spot in attack.

Here is how I think we’ll see Liverpool line-up:

Back Man City to win at 6/1 or Liverpool at 12/1 + money back if you lose

What do you think? What line-up would you like to see start?
