  • Liverpool hero This is how Klopp has shot himself in the foot this season

He has missed the last several games. City sit one point ahead of them and can boast an extra game in hand.

What time is it on?

Mark Lawrenson, a former Republic of Ireland global (Happy St. Patrick's Day, matey), has taken the time to discuss Jurgen Klopp's options for this Sunday's clash at Manchester City.

The Reds will go into the game at the Etihad Stadium with Henderson and Daniel Sturridge still on the sidelines, while Divock Origi is doubtful.

Who should start in central defence for this weekend's crunch clash with Manchester City?

Roberto Firmino faces a late fitness test of Liverpool after suffering a groin strain after the win against Arsenal. That could seriously backfire against a side like Manchester City when the game draws to a close.

Guardiola was criticised after City squandered a two-goal first leg advantage against Monaco as they crashed out of the Champions League following a 3-1 defeat in France on Wednesday. City are in the FA Cup semifinal but other than that all focus can now be kept on remaining in the top four of the Premier League. "Monaco are a good team - they score a lot of goals in all competitions", Fernandinho added.

The entirety of Emre Can's contract situation remains unclear and is likely to do so until an agreement is reached.

Jurgen Klopp was watching City's game with Monaco keenly in the week, but is under no illusions that this match will be an easier one because of it. "I thought the changes City made in the game were really good, at half-time for example", he said in his pre-match press conference. "We have to give an answer to our fans", Fernandinho told the club's website.

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has hinted at a new deal for midfielder Emre Can, while the Reds boss insists he is more than happy with Philippe Coutinho's form.

"We have to react and he reacted really well". We have to do it better and that is what we are working on.
