Liverpool in Big Trouble as They Face Their Rivals Manchester City

Liverpool face a huge task to defeat Manchester city the premier league champions without one of their key players, as england international Trent Alexander- Arnold will miss the match owing to a groin injury. 

Alexander- Arnold's miss will likely mean that former Manchester city midfielder James milner will again fill in at right back as he did in Liverpool's midweek mauling of Porto. 

Thiago Alcantara is also set to miss Manchester City's visit to Anfield due to calf issues, however Naby keita is understood to be available for the match following his return to fitness. 

The 18 year old Harvey Elliot will also miss a big clash , having sustained a dislocated ankle at Elland Road last month - an injury that is expected to keep Elliot on the sidelines for much of the campaign. 

Riverpool's injury- ravaged midfield indicates that jurgen kloop may again look to start a midfield trio-of fabinho, Jordan Henderson and Curtis jones. 

Additionally, jurgen kloop faces a selection dilemma up-top regarding who will accompany Mohamed Salah and sadio mane in the Liverpool front three as Roberto Firmino's  goalscoring in midweek will threaten Diogo Jota's starting berth.
