Liverpool v Man City: How Both Teams May Lineup, Latest Team News And Injury Updates Ahead of Super Sunday Fixture.

 On Sunday afternoon, when Liverpool hosts Manchester City in the Premier League, the defending champions square up against the struggling contenders in a thrilling game at Anfield.

The two dominant teams for the past seasons now, are now separated by a 13-point gap after the Reds lost 3-2 to Arsenal last weekend and City defeated Southampton 4-0.

Team News And Injury Updates

Arthur Melo, Luis Diaz, Joel Matip, Trent Alexander-Arnold, Naby Keita, and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain are still out of the running for Liverpool in the crucial match on Sunday, although Curtis Jones is still a possibility.

After being able to replace Kostas Tsimikas at left back in the Champions League victory over Rangers, Robertson is ready to start, with Joe Gomez filling in for Alexander-Arnold on the other flank.

For the champions' visit, Klopp once again turned between playing a 4-3-3 or a 4-2-3-1 formation, but none of Salah, Nunez, Firmino, or Diogo Jota—who assisted all of Salah's goals in midweek—deserve to be benched.

However, the Liverpool manager may finally choose for the 4-3-3 because to concerns that his midfield crop would be overrun, with Firmino maybe being the unfortunate one to occupy a position on the bench.

Due to a muscle issue, Ibrahima Konate has also recently become questionable, therefore Joe Gomez might go to the center of defense while James Milner fills in at right-back.

Guardiola on the other hand, has confirmed that Erling Braut Haaland will be fine to lead the line despite being rested as a precaution in midweek. The Man City medical facility is far from being as crowded as Liverpool's.

Aymeric Laporte is likely to leave the defense as Ruben Dias and Nathan Ake return along with Manuel Akanji and Joao Cancelo, but the game will come too soon for the trio of John Stones, Kalvin Phillips, and Kyle Walker.

Ilkay Gundogan may be dropped to the bench if Phil Foden and Bernardo Silva are recalled to the starting lineup, unless Pep Guardiola decides to bench Jack Grealish and play Silva in a more advanced position.

Liverpool Predicted XI:

Alisson; Milner, Gomez, Van Dijk, Robertson; Henderson, Fabinho, Thiago; Salah, Nunez, Jota.

Man City Predicted XI:

Ederson; Cancelo, Akanji, Dias, Ake; Silva, Rodri, De Bruyne; Foden, Haaland, Grealish.

Editor's Predicted Result:

Liverpool 2-2 Man City
