Liverpool will be desperate to end Manchester City’s unbeaten run and tighten their grip in the top four when the two clubs meet at Anfield on Sunday afternoon.

Jurgen Klopp has been speaking to the media at his pre-match press conference this afternoon and he’s offered a team news and injury update ahead of the game.

The Reds boss was pleased to confirm a major boost with the news that Mohamed Salah is set to be passed fit to face City this weekend after recovering from a groin strain.

Salah has missed Liverpool’s last two games against Burnley and Everton but returned to full training earlier this week and will be back in contention this weekend as long as he doesn’t suffer any setback over the next 48 hours.

Alberto Moreno also returned to full training on Wednesday after recovering from an ankle injury that he sustained during Liverpool’s Champions League win over Spartak Moscow a month ago.

However, after missing the last nine games in all competitions, Klopp feels Moreno may need more time to rebuild his fitness so Sunday’s game with City is expected to come too soon.


Jordan Henderson will also miss out this weekend as although the midfielder has been in light training this week, he is still working his way back from a hamstring injury.

Klopp told reporters:

It will obviously be a huge boost for Liverpool to have Salah available again as the Egyptian international has been one of the stars of the season so far having scored 23 goals in his 29 appearances in all competitions.

Liverpool head in to the weekend action sitting three points clear in fourth position but could move level on points with second-placed Man Utd with a win if other results go their way.
