Klopp Confirms Huge Injury Boost But Duo To Miss Man City Game

Reds fans are still licking their wounds after Philippe Coutinho's high-profile transfer to Barcelona was finalised this week.

#Manchester City hasn't lost in the League so far this season, but haven't been quite so convincing in recent weeks with the busy Christmas period taking some of the gloss off their performances.

Back BTTS at 2/5 or go against at 7/4. Guardiola's team remains unbeaten and 15 points clear at the top of the league standings.

Goals, goals and more goals are promised at Anfield on Sunday as the Premier League's top two scorers lock horns, with Liverpool hosting Manchester City in a titanic top-flight tussle.

Guardiola's side will now be looking to put that disappointment behind them and reignite their ruthless run on Meyerside.

City also now hold a massive 15 point lead over their closest title challengers Manchester United in the race to be crowned champions.

Mohamed Salah looks as unstoppable as anyone in the City ranks, whilst equally it seems unlikely Liverpool can pin City's front line down.

But Jurgen Klopp hopes to have him back to face City on Sunday with the Egypt global having already returned to full training. If one is going chalk with a City pick, then Raheem Sterling with his knack for late-game tallies is worth a side bet in goal scorer props.

However, every cloud has a silver lining as they say and while the Brazilian has gone to pastures new Liverpool have added with the acquisition of Virgil van Dijk. The Dutchman, just signed from Southampton for £75 million, had a dream debut, scoring the victor in the Merseyside derby last weekend.

Any potential slip up by the champions elect will leave the door open for the Red Devils, who host managerless Stoke City on Monday evening.

On Sunday he will be returning to Anfield. Having scored just two goals in their winless run, it was little surprise to see the Toffees' hierarchy hastily sanction a £27m move for Turkish striker Cenk Tosun. The forward only appeared as a second-half substitute in Wednesday's League Cup semi-final against Chelsea, hinting that Wenger is planning for a future without one of his star players. "With Van Dijk they are even better".

Nathaniel Clyne, Jordan Henderson, Alberto Moreno and Daniel Sturridge are all still out injured.

Ilkay Gundogan said Pep Guardiola's faith in him was key in his decision to sign with Manchester City.

Captain Vincent Kompany is major doubt as he struggles with a calf strain.

City will be without left-back Benjamin Mendy following his ACL injury.
