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

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

Manchester City will be aiming to return to winning ways on Saturday afternoon when they welcome Liverpool to the Etihad Stadium.

The Citizens played out a pulsating 4-4 draw with Chelsea before the international break, with the result leaving them top of the table on 28 points, one point ahead of second-placed Liverpool.

Pep Guardiola's side have won nine, drawn one and lost two of their 12 league matches this season, and a victory on Saturday would allow them to open up a four-point advantage at the summit.

Here, Sports Mole rounds up Man City's latest injury and suspension news ahead of the contest with Jurgen Klopp's team.
