Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has made two changes to his starting lineup as they prepare to face Manchester City in the Premier League on Sunday.
Klopp has chosen to leave out summer signing Luis Diaz and replace him with Thiago Alcantara in midfield. The Spaniard returns to the starting lineup after spending two months on the sidelines due to an injury.
In addition, Klopp has opted to hand Diogo Jota his first start since returning from injury. The Portuguese forward replaces Divock Origi in the starting lineup.
The rest of the Liverpool lineup remains unchanged, with captain Jordan Henderson and Georginio Wijnaldum retaining their places in midfield. Up front, the front three of Mohamed Salah, Roberto Firmino and Sadio Mane remain intact.
In goal, Alisson Becker will be looking to keep a fourth clean sheet in five Premier League games. The Brazilian is likely to be protected by a back four of Trent Alexander-Arnold, Joe Gomez, Virgil van Dijk and Andy Robertson.
Klopp will be hoping his side can extend their unbeaten run against Man City to nine games and maintain their position at the top of the Premier League table.
The game will be the first time these two sides have met since the Champions League quarter-finals last season, when Liverpool emerged victorious after two legs.
