Man City vs Liverpool – Premier League LIVE
-Kick-off is at 4.30pm
-Team news expected an hour before
Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has confirmed Thiago Alcantara will miss the Premier League trip to Manchester City.
The Reds manager also gave an update on Fabinho and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain as they look to return to full fitness.
Klopp said: “Doing well, that’s how it is with the boys.
“Especially Oxlade, it takes time but looks really good, but takes time – everybody knows that.
“And with Thiago, that’s how it is. It’s an injury but doesn’t need a surgery, all these kind of things but still takes time.
“The challenge that day was a harsh one and directly against the leg, so still adapting but improving. It will not be too long anymore but for this game I don’t think he will be in.”
Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola has told his side they will need to suffer against Liverpool.
“When you play against teams like Liverpool you always have moments where you have to suffer. We know it, we have to do it and try to use our strength as much a possible,” Guardiola said.
“We know each other quite well, we play many, many times and I don’t expect a game like 90 minutes we will be there or they will be there.
“There will be ups and downs, we have to be stable and take our good chances and be clinical. Both teams want to attack, both teams want to try.
“In general, we did games – not over 90 minutes because we are not ready to maintain the level but in general it was good.”
