Liverpool v Manchester City : Preview, Predicted Lineups, Telecast Details & More

High flying Manchester City are yet to face their toughest test this season as they lock horns with league rivals Liverpool for the all-important UEFA Champions League quarter final draw at Anfield on Wednesday, 4th of March at 19:45 BST.

As Pep Guardiola marches on to assert his domination over the European platform now after a splendid domestic season, Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp will have other plans. After winning the last tie in a dramatic 4-3 finish at the Anfield, Klopp will certainly look to press high up the field and cause all sorts of complications for the City manager. However earlier in September, City net five past a 10-men Liverpool side which just goes on to show how much of a threat City can become if not countered well. The game will certainly live up to its expectations and promises to be a goal-fest for the viewers worldwide.

Team News:

Liverpool:

Jurgen Klopp has yesterday confirmed the unavailability of Adam Lallana and defender Joel Matip for the tie and has also hinted that Emre Can remains a major doubt to make it on the team sheet. Already on the injury list are Joe Gomez, Ragnar Klavan and Ben Woodburn but however the news of Nathaniel Clyne returning to training is a big boost for the Reds before the crucial first leg.

“Physically, he is fit – but he has no football rhythm, to be honest,” Klopp explained. “It’s a very special game and a very demanding opponent, especially for defenders. It’s a decision I have to make. We have enough options in this position, at least, and that’s good. Hopefully it stays like that.”

Also one yellow card away from suspension are Alberto Moreno and Jordan Henderson.

Man City:

Guardiola has confirmed that Aguero has not travelled with the match-day squad and is returning to full fitness back in Manchester. “He is much, much better but the doctors spoke to him today and he said he still has a little bit of a problem and isn’t comfortable.” said the ex-Barcelona and Bayern coach at the press conference yesterday.

The return of Delph is however a good news for the City fans as the City boss hesitated to share his plans for the big game. “Fabian Delph is back, Danilo can play there. I have an idea (about who will play) but you understand I can’t tell you!” he said.

Probable Lineups:

Liverpool:

Karius, Alexander-Arnold, Van Dijk, Lovren, Robertson, Henderson, Oxlade-Chamberlain, Wijnaldum, Salah, Mane, Firmino.

Man City:

Ederson, Walker, Kompany, Otamendi, Danilo, Fernandinho, de Bruyne, D. Silva, Sterling, Jesus, Sane

Key Players

Liverpool : Salah, Mane

City : KDB, D.Silva, Sane
