Liverpool Handed Boost for Manchester City Clash

A triple fitness boost was granted to Liverpool ahead of the Manchester City clash at Anfield this Sunday.

Alisson, Fabinho, and Sadio Mane are all set to recover from injury in time for the Reds to be involved in the clash with City, which may see them close the 7 points gap City are ahead of them.

The goalkeeper missed Brighton’s loss on Wednesday due to injury, while Mane and Fabinho were also missing from the game because of muscular problems.

Jurgen Klopp, however, reported that the trio would start training on Friday to be included this Sunday to take on Pep Guardiola’s side.

Pep Guardiola: “We will wait for him”

He said: “Ali feels much better, good enough to have an individual session today.

“Sadio and Fab will be in parts of team training today. Then we will see.”

Another boost for the defending champions was the news that January signing Ozan Kabak has finally received international clearance for the game.

Kazan and fellow deadline day recruit Ben Davies could be handed their Liverpool debuts against City but Klopp remains tight-lipped on the subject.

“With our situation, we will see who can play again, who cannot, and who should not or who should play again – all these kinds of things. Then we will see,” added the Liverpool manager.

“In an ideal world, you have a few weeks and work together on defensive things, especially organization and all these kinds of things.

“Ben and Ozan had yesterday an analysis meeting – and they trained – where they got shown all the stuff we do usually, like a center-half movie.

“So today, proper session. Tomorrow, proper session, and we will see. I don’t know yet.”
