Liverpool defeated Manchester City 3-0 at Anfield in the first leg of their Champions League quarter final tie. Can Citizens turn the tie around at the Etihad tomorrow night? We shall see.
At the weekend, the Reds opted to rest more than a few first team players against Everton at Goodisson Park. We can expect Jurgen Klopp to bring star players back vs the Sky Blues.
Firmino started on the bench vs the Toffees, on the other hand, star playmaker, Mohamed Salah, was not even included in the squad for the contest. We can expect the duo to start with Sadio Mane in the attack vs Manchester City.
As far as the midfield is concerned, skipper Jordan Henderson is suspended after getting booked in the first leg. Emre Can has been out injured for quite some time. In such a situation, the likes of Wijnaldum, Milner and Oxlade-Chamberlain should get the nod to start in the center of the park.
Karius will probably retain his starting place in the goal. Robertson and Alexander-Arnold should return to replace the likes of Klavan and Clyne in the back line.
Here is Liverpool’s strongest possible 4-3-3 XI vs Man City.
