The defender is handed his first Premier League appearance of the season as he replaces Trent Alexander-Arnold in the back four.

The Premier League match between Liverpool and Manchester City will be broadcast live on NBCSN. "I'm going for Liverpool to win 3-2". Watching them is really good.

Questioned about who will win the top of the table clash on Merseyside during his Ask Keown column in the Daily Mail on Thursday, Keown said: "I've gone for Liverpool to win the league so they need to win this one".

Bernardo Silva has warned that Liverpool are now a better side than when they beat champions Manchester City three times last season. City managed to come from behind and find a late victor at Hoffenheim to record a 2-1 victory, while Liverpool were hit by a late victor in Napoli losing the game 1-0.

'Salah is younger, it was his first year back in England since his time at Chelsea, so we will see in the ¬future, but a guy who has the quality to score almost 50 goals in a season always has that quality, ' said Walker.

Pep Guardiola has surprisingly revealed that Manchester City might be able to call on Kevin De Bruyne when his side visits Anfield tomorrow.

Manchester City fullback Kyle Walker admits he's happier facing Liverpool striker Mohamed Salah today than teammate Sergio Aguero. In the last 15 minutes they had two big chances and scored a goal.

Betfair spokesperson Katie Baylis said: "In the game of the week, Liverpool at home are favourites at 31/20 with City at 9/5 and the draw at 13/5".

"We don't want to have that feeling again so we will fight with all we have for a different result", he added.
