Liverpool team news: Injury, suspension list vs. Manchester City

Sports Mole rounds up Liverpool's latest injury and suspension news ahead of Sunday's top-of-the-table showdown with champions and closest title rivals Manchester City.

Liverpool welcome closest rivals Manchester City to Anfield on Sunday in a showdown which could prove pivotal to this season's title race.

The Reds have dropped just two points in the Premier League this term and would move nine points clear of the defending champions if they make it 20 wins from their last 21 top-flight outings.

Liverpool have not kept a single clean sheet at home all season, though, which will be a concern heading into a match against the division's top scorers.

Here, Sports Mole rounds up the latest injury and suspension news for Jurgen Klopp's side ahead of the blockbuster contest.



Jordan Henderson

Type of injury: Illness
Possible return date: November 10 (vs. Man City)

Captain Jordan Henderson missed Tuesday night's Champions League win over Genk due to illness, but he is expected to have recovered in time for Sunday.

Status: Out
Type of injury: Calf
Possible return date: November 23 (vs. Crystal Palace)

Klopp is hopeful that Sunday's match will be the last that Shaqiri is forced to miss through his calf injury, with a return pencilled in for after the upcoming international break.



Joel Matip
