Liverpool know that if they don’t improve their away form quickly, they won’t be able to break into the top four against Manchester City at the Etihad
That’s easier said than done, of course, when you’re up against one of the most in-form teams in the country (not to mention one vying for the league title) with only 12 Premier League games remaining.
A win here, if possible, would represent a potentially season-defining turn as we look to beat Newcastle, Tottenham, and Brighton to a place in the Champions League.
Jurgen Klopp is expected to select a center-back pairing of Virgil van Dijk and Ibrahima Konate to start ahead of Alisson Becker in goal.
In light of Stefan Bajcetic’s injury, the midfield will undergo surgery, with Jordan Henderson and Harvey Elliott potentially returning to the starting lineup.
We could see Arthur Melo return to the bench after being available in training (and sending teammates into a frenzy with a slick nutmeg on Ben Doak).
Assuming no new injury concerns arise, a forward line consisting of Darwin Nunez, Cody Gakpo, and Mo Salah should start against the Sky Blues.
