A busy run of seven games in 23 days comes to an end this afternoon as the Reds welcome their title rivals to Anfield for a crucial clash.
After a loss and a draw in two meetings with Chelsea, and a defeat to Napoli in midweek, the pressure is on Klopp’s side to return to form before the international break.
The manager has largely stuck with the same side throughout this congested period, and has maintained this approach in pursuit of three points.
Salah, who has endured widespread scrutiny in recent weeks, has scored in 11 of the past 12 league games at Anfield, with this clash providing the perfect chance to revive his fortunes.
Xherdan Shaqiri, Daniel Sturridge and birthday boy Trent Alexander-Arnold are among Klopp’s options on the substitutes’ bench, as Liverpool look to head into the international break top of the league.
Liverpool: Alisson; Gomez, Lovren, Van Dijk, Robertson; Wijnaldum, Henderson, Milner; Salah, Mane, Firmino
Substitutes: Mignolet, Matip, Alexander-Arnold, Fabinho, Keita, Shaqiri, Sturridge
Man City: Ederson; Walker, Stones, Laporte, Mendy; Fernandinho, B Silva, D Silva; Mahrez, Sterling, Aguero
Substitutes: Muric, Kompany, Otamendi, Danilo, Foden, Sane, Jesus
