Liverpool are fighting for both the Premier League and the Champions League. City though have been dumped out of Europe by Spurs and have a single target now.
Liverpool must win away to Cardiff if they hope to keep their title hopes alive. All this while, Klopp must rotate the squad for fitness concerns.
Dejan Lovren, ill for the match against Porto is back in contention:
“We will see. Dejan was ill so he should be available again, we will see that.
“Pretty much all the rest should be available, I heard nothing after the Porto game.
“Always after games a few players have slight, little problems but nothing really serious – so it should be OK, should all be in.
“Joe looked good. Joe played 60 minutes [for the U23s last Sunday] and now 20 roundabout. It looked good and looks good.”
So Liverpool expect a clean bill of health, meaning Joe Gomez could be back in the squad to rotate and refresh. To the 3 points.
