Manchester City goalkeeper Ederson will not face Liverpool, having failed to recover from the muscular problem that led to his substitution against Atalanta in midweek.
He will be replaced by Claudio Bravo, who was sent off in that game, while David Silva is not expected to be fit.
City manager Pep Guardiola has defended Bravo amid criticism of his display in midweek, saying: “He is an exceptional goalkeeper. He is an international goalkeeper. I have no doubts.
“Why shouldn’t I be confident about my players? I see him every day in training. We won’t lose because of Claudio.
“The red card the other day was because we lost the ball. Respect the guy. He is a top keeper.”
Current league leaders, Liverpool, face defending champions, Man City today at 17:30 GMT.
Considering the cracks in Man City at the moment, pundits are predicting a 2-0 victory against them this afternoon.
