The Spaniard has not featured in any of the Reds' last eight games since picking up an ankle tendon injury against Spartak Moscow in the Champions League in early December.

A Liverpool upset over Manchester City could give the other teams in the Top 5 a chance to put a dent in City's seemingly insurmountable lead for this year's championship.

Klopp also rejected suggestions Naby Keita's move from RB Leipzig to Liverpool, set to be completed at the end of the campaign, could be brought forward to help the team cope with the departure of Philippe Coutinho to Barcelona.

Liverpool host Manchester City at Anfield in what should be this weekend's most exciting game.

"The emergence of (Mohamed) Salah, that signing's been awesome".

"There have been signs that City, particularly the centre backs - not so much John Stones but (Nicolas) Otamendi or (Eliaquim) Mangala - you can press certain players and nick the ball off them". Kane claimed the prize ahead of seven other nominees - Chelsea's Marcos Alonso, West Ham United's Marko Arnautovic, Liverpool duo Roberto Firmino and Mohamed Salah, Jesse Lingard of Manchester United, Leicester City's Riyad Mahrez and Manchester City's Nicolas Otamendi. "It could take another couple of transfer windows before they can get the right players".

"We know it's possible", Klopp said. "As a Scouser you always remember the first time you play at Anfield". I'm quite sure that I will never be the same player again that I was. I think (Sadio) Mane can get better as well.

The question now though, is what else can the Premier League leaders achieve en route to their first top flight triumph since 2014?

The German will reveal more on Moreno's fitness and issue an update on the shape of the rest of his first-team squad in his pre-City address to the media on Friday.

"I spoke with Jurgen about different things", Gundogan told outlets in the United Kingdom on Friday. It was a memorable day for City - I wasn't even born the previous time they had won there [Boxing Day 1981].

But since Champions League action took a back seat the Reds have been more risky than ever.

Manchester City have just been absolutely brilliant but this will be a tough test for them.

Barton however thinks the win City crave will still prove elusive.

The future star said: "My favourite team is Liverpool".

This Sunday the two go head-to-head in the semi-finals of the Continental Tyres Cup at Kingsmeadow, which means one of them will have to lose their unbeaten record.

"I'm focused on Liverpool, as a manager, you have a lot of work to deal with so you have to choose what to be focused on", said Guardiola.
