♦Every Liverpool player available to Man City as Jurgen Klopp misses five players

Liverpool meet Manchester City on Saturday, the first of three ‘Big Six’ clashes that will see Jurgen Klopp’s side need points to boost their Champions League hopes.

Liverpool will face a daunting fixture list in April, with the first of three clashes against the so-called ‘Big Six’ in eight days, starting with an away game against Manchester City. Jürgen Klopp will have to do without six stars, which is also doubtful for a couple.

There is no doubt what task awaits the Reds over the next week, with this weekend’s clash with Pep Guardiola’s side at the Etihad soon to be followed by Chelsea on Tuesday and a meeting with Arsenal leaders on Sunday. There’s a feeling this week won’t be for the timid of Liverpool supporters. Liverpool very rarely get through an international break unscathed in terms of staff injuries and this week has been no different with one star picking up a knock that could keep him out for this run of matches and another likely to face a test of eligibility for citizens. That wasn’t all bad, with the sight of Luis Díaz coming to train with his team-mates after a lengthy injury layoff at the AXA Training Center this week, a truly promising sign as Liverpool head into the last 12 Premier League matches. season.

Here, brings you the full list of players available for manager Klopp, who hopes his side can pick up points against Manchester City to keep their top four hopes alive:

Goalkeepers: Alisson Becker, Adrian, Caoimhin Kelleher.

Defenders: Virgil van Dijk, Ibrahima Konaté, Joe Gomez, Andy Robertson, Joël Matip, Nat Phillips, Trent Alexander-Arnold.

Midfielders: Fabinho, James Milner, Jordan Henderson, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Fabio Carvalho, Curtis Jones, Harvey Elliott, Arthur Melo. Forwards: Roberto Firmino, Mohamed Salah, Cody Gakpo, Diogo Jota.
