Liverpool predicted starting line-up vs Man City - as Darwin Nunez injury call made - gallery
Liverpool predicted team to face Manchester City in the Premier League.
The international break has now come to a close - meaning that all eyes now turn back to the Premier League season.
The Liverpool squad will now reassemble back at the AXA Training Centre in the coming days as the likes of Mo Salah, Virgil van Dijk and Jordan Henderson return after representing their respective nations.
The Reds have 12 games remaining to secure a top-four spot - and Jurgen Klopp knows it’s going to be tall order. Liverpool currently sit seven points outside of the Champions League places but do have two games in hand on Tottenham Hotspur.
Klopp has labelled his side’s next three games as season-defining - and they couldn’t be much more difficult.
First is a trip to champions Manchester City on Saturday before facing Chelsea and leaders Arsenal.
The clash at the Etihad Stadium will be the Reds’ first fixture in two-and-a-half weeks after they crashed out of the Champions League last 16 at the hands of Real Madrid.
Liverpool have some injury doubts, with Darwin Nunez suffering a cut ankle before the international break while Luis Diaz is due to return to full training this week.
Klopp will provide a Reds squad update at his pre-match press conference later this week. But ahead of that, here’s an early prediction of how Liverpool will line-up.
