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

Sports Mole rounds up Liverpool's injury and suspension news ahead of Saturday's Premier League clash with Manchester City.

With the chance to rise to the top of the Premier League table, Liverpool return from the international break with a tantalising clash against Manchester City at the Etihad on Saturday lunchtime.

Jurgen Klopp's side had hit a bit of a plateau earlier this month, but they made a welcome return to winning ways with a 3-0 success over Brentford two weekends ago, as a Mohamed Salah brace preceded a fine Diogo Jota strike.

Liverpool's three-goal triumph kept them above Arsenal in second place on goal difference and just one point behind leaders Man City, whom they will overtake with maximum points at the Etihad.

Here, Sports Mole rounds up Liverpool's latest injury and suspension news ahead of their blockbuster battle with the Citizens, who played out a mesmerising 4-4 draw with Chelsea before the November hiatus.

Status: Minor doubt
Type of injury: Knee
Possible return date: November 25 (vs. Man City)

Ryan Gravenberch was unavailable for meetings with Toulouse and Brentford before the international break due to a knee concern, but Klopp stated that the Dutchman would "definitely" return once domestic football resumes, so he should be given the green light to line up at the Etihad.


Curtis Jones

Status: Minor doubt
Type of injury: Hamstring
Possible return date: November 25 (vs. Man City)

Similarly, Klopp also expects Curtis Jones to be back in the fold this weekend after the Englishman picked up a low-grade hamstring problem at the start of the month, although he is unlikely to force his way into the first XI.


Andrew Robertson

Status: Out
Type of injury: Shoulder
Possible return date: January 1 (vs. Newcastle United)

Andrew Robertson recently revealed that he is making steady progress in his rehabilitation from shoulder surgery, but there is no chance of the left-back making his comeback before the end of the calendar year.


Thiago Alcantara

Status: Out
Type of injury: Hip
Possible return date: January 1 (vs. Newcastle United)

Similarly, the hapless Thiago Alcantara - who has been in the treatment room with a hip injury since April - is also targeting a return next January, having been forced to overcome a couple of recent setbacks in his recovery.


Stefan Bajcetic

Status: Out
Type of injury: Calf
Possible return date: Unknown

After making a full recovery from an adductor problem, Stefan Bajcetic was quickly sidelined again with a calf concern relating to the teenager's growth, and Klopp cannot say when the up-and-coming Spaniard might be available again.


Ibrahima Konate

Status: Minor doubt
Type of injury: Hamstring
Possible return date: November 25 (vs. Man City)

Upon Ibrahima Konate's withdrawal from international duty, the French Football Federation revealed that the centre-back would be sidelined for two weeks with a hamstring injury, but the former RB Leipzig man has trained and is therefore only a minor doubt for the clash with the champions.


Joe Gomez

Status: Minor doubt
Type of injury: Unspecified
Possible return date: November 25 (vs. Man City)

Both Konate and Joe Gomez were ruled out of the visit of Brentford, and while little updates have been given on the nature and indeed severity of the latter's problem, he has also been seen in practice and ought to make the cut.


LIVERPOOL'S SUSPENSION LIST

Alexis Mac Allister will return from a one-game Premier League ban for Liverpool this weekend, meaning that the Reds have no players suspended for this crucial encounter.
