Sports Mole takes an in-depth look at how Liverpool could line up for Saturday's Premier League clash with Manchester City.

Liverpool head coach Jurgen Klopp is expecting to have Ryan Gravenberch available for Saturday's top-of-the-table Premier League battle with Manchester City at the Etihad.

The Dutchman had entered the medical bay with a knee problem before the international break, although Klopp said that he would "definitely" have recovered by the time the lunchtime kickoff rolls around.

Curtis Jones (hamstring) is in the same boat, but Ibrahima Konate (hamstring) and Joe Gomez (knock) are more uncertain, while Thiago Alcantara (hip), Stefan Bajcetic (calf) and Andrew Robertson (shoulder) are guaranteed to miss out.

In addition, Klopp - who is sure to make his feelings known about the 12.30pm kickoff - must carefully assess the South American quartet of Alisson Becker, Luis Diaz, Darwin Nunez and Alexis Mac Allister, although the former will be expected to start in goal either way.

Konate should be in the final stages of his recovery from a hamstring problem, but Joel Matip is a more likely candidate to join Virgil van Dijk, Trent Alexander-Arnold and Kostas Tsimikas - who allayed fears of an injury during the international break - in the rearguard.

Gravenberch's expected return ought to see the Dutchman rejoin Dominik Szoboszlai in midfield, where Mac Allister is available again following a suspension and may demote Wataru Endo to the bench depending on his fitness levels.

However, Klopp will likely wrap Diaz and Nunez in cotton wool as Diogo Jota and Cody Gakpo start alongside Mohamed Salah, who will bring up 150 Premier League goals if he can make the net ripple once at the Etihad.

Liverpool possible starting lineup: Alisson; Alexander-Arnold, Matip, Van Dijk, Tsimikas; Szoboszlai, Mac Allister, Gravenberch; Salah, Jota, Gakpo
