Liverpool team news: Injury, suspension list vs. Manchester City

Sports Mole rounds up Liverpool's latest injury and suspension news ahead of Thursday night's Premier League trip to face Manchester City at the Etihad Stadium.

Liverpool will take to the field as champions of England for the first time in 30 years on Thursday night when they face the team they dethroned at the Etihad Stadium.

Jurgen Klopp's side will be given a guard of honour by Manchester City when they walk out, having wrapped up the title with a record seven games to spare courtesy of City's defeat at Chelsea last Thursday.

Liverpool are now chasing down a number of records, including Man City's own 100-point mark from 2017-18, but face arguably the most difficult assignment of their season in their first game as champions.

Here, Sports Mole rounds up Liverpool's latest injury and suspension news ahead of the contest.
