Coutinho is back, but does not possess the required fitness according to coach Jorgen Klopp who confirmed the player will be helped to regain his fitness in the next four days or there about.
Going forward, both sides will score goals. That is, it is a match capable of producing goals. Liverpool boast of inform Senegalese forward Sadio Mane, Firmino and Mohammed Salah who are expected to turn up on the day.
Manchester City will count on the prowess of Sergio Aguero who has netted five times in his last five games against Liverpool at Etihad. Gabriel Jesus has also proven to be a striker Pep Guardiola’s men can count on.
