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

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

Manchester City take on the side that last week dethroned them as Premier League champions when they play host to Liverpool on Thursday.

The Citizens' 800-plus-day reign as England's top club may be over following defeat to Chelsea, but they are still on course to finish the season as treble winners.

Having already won the EFL Cup in March, City beat Newcastle United 2-0 on Sunday to advance to the FA Cup semi-finals, where Arsenal await next month.

Pep Guardiola's men are also 2-1 up against Real Madrid after the first leg of their Champions League last-16 tie, with the reverse fixture scheduled for August.

City will also been keen to end the Premier League season on a high, starting with victory over newly-crowned champions Liverpool this week.

Here, Sports Mole rounds up City's latest injury and suspension news ahead of the contest.
