Liverpool vs Manchester City - Liverpool defender Joel Matip out of Manchester City clash

Liverpool defender Joel Matip has not recovered from a knee injury and will miss the visit of Manchester City.

Fellow defender Virgil Van Dijk, who was absent from training on Thursday “for other reasons” according to manager Jurgen Klopp, is fully fit and captain Jordan Henderson has recovered from illness.

Midfielder Xherdan Shaqiri remains sidelined with a calf problem.

Manchester City goalkeeper Claudio Bravo will make his first Premier League appearance in 18 months after Ederson was ruled out.

A thigh injury forced the number one off at half-time in the midweek draw at Atalanta and he has failed a fitness test ahead of the Anfield trip.

David Silva looks unlikely to play due to a muscular injury of his own and there are also doubts over Rodri (hamstring). Oleksandr Zinchenko, Leroy Sane and Aymeric Laporte remain sidelined.

Liverpool provisional squad: Alisson, Alexander-Arnold, Lovren, Van Dijk, Robertson, Fabinho, Henderson, Wijnaldum, Salah, Firmino, Mane, Adrian, Gomez, Milner, Keita, Lallana, Oxlade-Chamberlain, Origi, Brewster, Jones.

Man City provisional squad: Bravo, Carson, Walker, Cancelo, Stones, Otamendi, Fernandinho, Garcia, Mendy, Angelino, Gundogan, De Bruyne, B Silva, Sterling, Mahrez, Foden, Aguero, Jesus.
