The Reds will be eager to get a win against Manchester City at Anfield. Naby Keita is the only doubt for Liverpool in this match. He was taken off in the first half against Napoli in the midweek. His fitness will be assessed at the very last moment ahead of the match. If Naby Keita fails to pass the fitness test, Jordan Henderson will be there to replace the player in the midfield. The likes of Xherdan Shaqiri, Fabinho and Daniel Sturridge are expected to sit in the bench in this match for the Reds.
