Liverpool: Team News 16/17 - Man City (Home)

The line-ups are in ahead of this afternoon's Premier League fixture with Manchester City at the Etihad...

Kop boss Jürgen Klopp makes one change to the team that defeated Burnley 2-1 last weekend. The alteration sees Roberto Firmino return at the expense of Divock Origi.

Origi is amongst the substitutes despite a recent bout of illness, as is Dejan Lovren after missing the past five matches.

Hosts Manchester City restore Yaya Touré to the starting eleven after the experienced Ivorian was left out of the midweek Champions League exit to Monaco.

Elsewhere, Nicolás Otamendi partners John Stones in central defence with Aleksandar Kolarov dropping to the bench.

At the time of writing, a surprisingly high 62% of the Vital Liverpool users who've voted in our online poll are predicting an away win. Of the remaining 38%, 26% expect a home win while only 12% foresee a draw.

The game is scheduled for a 4.30pm GMT kick-off and will be broadcast live in the UK on Sky Sports 1.



Manchester City: Caballero, Fernandinho, Stones, Otamendi, Clichy, Touré, Sané, De Bruyne, Silva (c), Sterling, Agüero.

Subs: Bravo, Sagna, Fernando, Nolito, Kolarov, Iheanacho, A. Garcia.



Liverpool: Mignolet, Clyne, Matip, Klavan, Milner (c), Wijnaldum, Can, Lallana, Coutinho, Mané, Firmino.

Subs: Karius, Moreno, Alexander-Arnold, Woodburn, Lucas, Lovren, Origi.
