The Reds have one foot in the semi-finals after a 3-0 win at Anfield, but there’s still a big job ahead to ensure progression in Europe.
That means it was imperative to get key players back to full fitness—and the Reds received a massive boost with Mohamed Salah‘s return to action.
Liverpool’s own attack should be boosted by the return of Roberto Firmino, who spent most of the weekend game on the bench, only coming on for the final 20 minutes.
But it will be all eyes on those at the back primarily, with Virgil van Dijk chief among those charged with keeping City frustrated.
Chances are, the Reds will look to spring counter-attacking opportunities when the possibility arises, making the likes of Sadio Mane pivotal components once again.
While much of the team will pick itself due to injuries and suspensions, one intriguing battle may come at right-back.
Ninety minutes stand between Liverpool and a Champions League semi-final berth; tomorrow in Manchester, the Reds’ fate for the campaign will be decided.
