Premier League leaders Liverpool take on defending champions Manchester City in a titanic clash at Anfield this afternoon.
Jurgen Klopp welcomes skipper Jordan Henderson back into the team after he recovered from an illness that kept him out of the Champions League win over Genk last week. Naby Keita is the man to make way as Fabinho and Gini Wijnaldum keep their places in the middle of the park.
Liverpool also recall Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino in attack after they were rested in midweek while Trent Alexander-Arnold, Andy Robertson and Dejan Lovren join Virgil van Dijk in defence.
