Top of the table Liverpool host Man City who sit currently in fourth place after Saturday's Premier League result.

The reds will be aiming to increase their lead over City to 9 points with a win, whilst City who face a tougher fixture list in the coming months will hope to cut the reds lead down to three.

With Chelsea and Leicester also enjoying good results in recent weeks, the reds will be aiming to keep ahead of those two challengers as well as Guardiola's men.

Jurgen Klopp returns to his traditional Premier League line-up with Dejan Lovren and Andy Robertson back in the starting eleven, and the midfield trio of Fabinho, Henderson and Wijnaldum all involved.

Liverpool: Alisson, Alexander-Arnold, van Dijk, Lovren, Robertson, Henderson, Wijnaldum, Fabinho, Mane, Salah, Firmino

Subs:  Adrián, Milner, Origi, Lallana, Oxlade-Chamberlain, Keïta, Gomez

Man City: Bravo, Walker, Stones, Angelino, Luiz Roza, Gündogan, De Bruyne, Sterling, Agüero, Silva, Rodri

Subs:  Carson, Cancelo, Otamendi, Silva, Jesus, Mahrez, Foden

City's first big game of the season?

This will be Liverpool's 5th game against a team currently in the top 6 of the Premier League.  The reds have won all 4 of their previous top six games this season.

For Man City however the opening fixture list has been far kinder, and this is the first time they have faced a top six side this season.  They have also yet to play local rivals Manchester United.
